With its malleable heelcup, Salomon’s ‘Shadowfit’ technology has turned a few heads. If you’re not familiar with it, check out the Salomon District to see what it’s all about. The system has certainly won its fair share of fans, but even the makers of Shadowfit will admit that it’s perhaps not for everyone.
“Blaster Tech acts like dual shock absorbers, cancelling out some of the chatter than can lead to foot fatigue”
That’s why they continue to make models with conventional heelcups alongside the softer ones. The Salomon Trigger is one of these, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that it’s run-of-the-mill.
The key feature in the Salomon Trigger is the ‘Blaster’ tech – put simply, the sections of binding that join the baseplate to the heelcup are more flexible than the rest of the chassis, which is rigid. These act like dual shock absorbers, cancelling out some of the chatter than can lead to foot fatigue.
