KLCC Park has always been a favourite place for us to run. Beautiful KL skyline. Dedicated running path. Right smack in the city.
It is a perfect place to try out the latest multitasking shoes from Salomon - X-Scream 3D CityTrail which is designed urban runs that involve both tarmac road and easy trails.
The trail was organised by World of Sports Malaysia in conjunction with the launch of the shoe. About 30 of us, bloggers and representative from the media were invited to try out the shoe in a run around the park.
Offering a dynamic and cushioned ride, the Salomon X-Scream 3D is an agile CITYTRAIL™ shoe that injects mountain spirit (which Salomon is famous far) into running in an urban landscape.
Just like the other shoes in Salomon stable, X-Scream 3D is equipped with the Quicklace™ system. Quicklace™ is a single Kevlar® string fed through friction-free eyelets. As you pull, the lace closes evenly. Lock in place with the stopper and stow Everything in the lace pocket. Fast, light, comfortable and won´t loosen while you run.Just click the video below for a demo on how quick it is to lace up your shoe.
As you can see, the lace can be tucked neatly into the pocket flap on top of the shoe tongue. So, say bye bye to flapping shoe laces that can get undone easily during your run.
Apart from Quicklace™, the shoe also features
Contagrip® is a mix between density, Compound and geometry to optimize grip and durability for each surface or activity. A race proven technology.
Sensifit™ cradles the foot from the midsole to the lace system, providing a stable, precise, snug fit all around the system. Moulded into the shoe, reducing weight and brings more comfort.
After a quick warm up session by Salomon Ambassador, Raymond Ng, we are off to "explore" the KLCC Park with our new shoes. Click video to play.
Off we go covering various surfaces like city pavement, rubberised jogging track, grass, stairs etc while enjoying the beautiful city-scape around the Petronas Twin Tower.
We like the breathable mesh upper that provides an adaptive fit, while the dual density midsole provides an optimal amount of underfoot cushioning.
Just like its predecessor, the Salomon X-Scream, the X-Scream 3D features multidirectional lugs on the outsole allow you to traverse over a variety of surfaces, with a thin TPU film layer in the forefoot for additional stability.
If you are looking for a minimalist trail shoe, this is not for you. The Salomon X-Scream 3D CityTrail running shoe has many features and packed with technologies to make your run more comfortable and enjoyable.
Yup! It's an all rounder shoes for the city boy and girls out there. Whether you're running over dirt and gravel or exploring the urban streets, this shoe makes an excellent companion. Check out the video.
