Fast paced and agile, a low profile and excellent stability characteristics. Salming Viper 5 Padel enables an impeccable close-to-the-ground court feel and features an outsole with a fishbone pattern that provides excellent grip. The shoe is built with Salmings TGS62/75 philosophy and features an arch unit for enhanced torque characteristic. The upper is made in Salmings ViperSKIN™, a synthetic lightweight sandwich construction that hugs your foot and provides excellent support and stability. Energy return is secured by Salming RunLite2™, a super light responsive midsole.
An increased radius on the inner side of the outer sole, facilitates rolling the foot inwards and toe push off. Reaching for that stop ball in squash or covering a shot in floorball is made easier with the RollBar™ technology.
Torsion Guide System. The distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called ”ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. TGS 62/75 takes all of the gait cycle criteria into consideration. At the same time, it softens the strains caused by friction during lateral movements. The shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
To stabilize and fixate the heel, which is key to providing a great fit and comfort, we have developed a new anatomical Ergo Heel Cup that is slightly longer than the average heel cup.
Lateral Movement Stabilizer - an especially designed light weight integrated dual torsion unit that supports the foot during fast and irregular lateral movements.
Fast lateral stops expose the foot to the risk to roll over outwards, causing injuries. LMS+ (Lateral Movement Stabilizer Plus) is a unique design with a positive angle of 11° that prevents the foot from rolling over outwards.
A new 3 layer upper construction that has a soft mesh at bottom, towards the foot, microfiber reinforced areas and sealed off with a thin TPU film. Combined these areas creates a smooth and rigid construction that keep the foot in place and a snug fit.
The midsole features the new RUNlite2™ foam midsole material which offers lower weight and better energy return from the very first step.
