Designed with trail running legend, Francois D’haene, specifically for the needs of ultra-marathoners, the S/LAB SENSE ULTRA 2, also called the S/Lab Ultra, embodies Francois' phyisical and mental preparation for ultra distance racing. It blends long-distance comfort, precise fit, and grip with a graphic treatment that expresses the different stages of an Ultra. ULTRA 2 will help you reach your ultra goals.
ULTRA DISTANCE COMFORT | Energysave® foam insert in the forefoot adds long-lasting cushioning and protection from rocks and rough ground, while ENERGYCELL+ foam in the bottom unit ensures a smooth, consistent ride.
FIT | To achieve comfort and foothold on the downhills,the Ultra 2 combines SENSIFIT construction with a durable, protective Skin guard lining.
GRIP | An all-new Contagrip® outsole, with premium wet traction and reverse lugs on the heel area, delivers confident grip, especially on the downhills.
"This is an ultra-trail shoe so it needs to be able to hold up under all the conditions and terrain you encounter in an ultra-race,” D’haene explains. “Having said that, not all benefits can be developed at the same level so some need to be prioritized. Performance was the key priority. So it had to be lightweight, but at the same time remain comfortable and deliver protection over long distances. It’s kind of like a Formula 1 car adapted to long distance and paths.”
