Salomon Test Ride Event

 Last night the Salomon demo fleet arrived in the Valley like a pack of wild animals on an African safari.  Zebra stripes, wild colours and dirt chewing tread- these sneaks were ready to run free!

J.P., the Salomon rep for BC, was in house at Valhalla Pure last night for a fun Test Ride event.  It was a great opportunity to learn more about the latest trail runners in the Salomon fleet and to take them out for a short run!

After J.P.'s tech talk I took the group of test riders down to Simms Park for a little trial run on different surfaces and pitches.  It was an awesome way to get to know the differences in the shoes and see which ones fit the best.  Just like a good wine tasting...the best way to find your flavour is to try a few side by side!

 We were testing out 3 main shoes- the XT Wings Lab, the Speedcross3 and the XRMission.  Three completely different shoes with very different applications.  I loved them all of course:) .  And now I have a pair of shiney new Speedcross3's on the way...

Good times!  Thanks so much JP for coming up with the Demo Fleet and great swag for the test riders!  Big thanks to Valhalla for hosting and offering the ELM Members an awesome shopping discount and prize draw!

Happy Trails;)
