SPEED HIKING

What About

Speed hiking is fastpacking or rapid hiking. Covering longer distances over technical, rocky terrain, both on and off trail while moving fast and light. Think backpacking, only faster. Think alpine hiking meets trail running.

Speed hiking means getting more out of your day. Moving faster and using your mountain skills to access remoter trails and wilder areas. Seeing how far you can go at your own pace. When the terrain gets steep, fast-walking power and endurance are the name of the game.

MODEL

LITE TRAIN K

A lightweight, responsive men’s and women's low-cut shoe with a knitted upper and MICHELIN® outsole for speed hiking and mountain training.

Technology at your feet

The shoe is built around MICHELIN® sole platform, which was developed exclusively with SALEWA. Its special Outdoor Compound has a sculpted and grooved design, inspired by mountain biking tires, that delivers excellent slope-crossing traction and optimal adaptability, including on soft and uneven terrain. Additionally, SALEWA’s 3F Total System provides additional support to the mid foot by extending the 3F System into the lacing area. This increases stability and gives a more precise fit.
