Salomon Lab is a process of making dedicated products to meet the individual fit and performance needs of our international team. Athletes and designers work together, through every step of the process, because a millimeter or a gram is ultimately the difference between gold and silver.
And while the S-Lab process is focused on winning, the products it generates are your assurance of pure performance. Products that enable you to realize your goals, and find your own freedom.
Salomon has worked with athletes to develop head to toe products for adventure racing and trail running for more than a decade. This collaboration between engineers and athletes gives us a unique ability to develop the most innovative trail running products available. The following pages highlight some of the innovations and technologies that this process has created.
