Fell, Fell and Fell ! Fell is normally a term that is coming to the British language from Nordic countries. Fell means; the hills basically referring to the mountains. Two years ago Salomon introduced it`s first Fell running shoe ( Salomon Fellcross ) shoe which is “designed in the Alps” (where Salomon Labs are in Annecy in France) and “tested on the Fells” !
Now Salomon revealed it`s second Fell running shoe, the Salomon Fellraiser in Outdoor Retailer Winter 2013 Show this week.
The Salomon Fellraiser shoe is a low profile, lightweight and fast-drying trail shoe which is made for training in muddy and wet conditions. The shoe has Mesh upper which is breathable and enables fast drying. (Opposite to water protection on upper part of the Fell Cross). This gives the shoe a maximum 232 grams of weight which is 8.2 OZ
The heel-to-toe-drop is said to be 7mm. Midsole is 19mm at the heel and 12mm at the toe. The spikes and the traction of the shoe seems really improved and thick. This will be a definite strong alternative for most of the versions of INOV8 Mud series.
The comments from the people actually saw the shoe is that the midsole is softer than Crossmax or Sense Mantra. The below Salomon Russia catalogue pictures are found from web.
You can see that there are 2 Women`s and 3 Men’s colours will be available for Fellraiser. Looking forward to test in the muddy, wet and sometimes snowy British fells.
