Kiprun trail XT6: maximum grip
A direct descendent of the XT5, unanimously recognised for its traction qualities, the XT6 has 5mm extra thickness in the sole and 5mm "delta" lugs that are well positioned to prevent clogging and enhance propulsion.
The K-ring cushioning concept makes this XT6 model the perfect shoe for both runners training daily for competitions and those taking on the most demanding ultra trails. While Akstab technology ensures perfect stability.

Testers award of the European Big Test Shoes
This year, Kalenji Trail shoes were again among Endurance Trail's favourites at the 2016 European Big Test Shoes.
The testers spent a week on Madeira comparing the best brands of running shoes on the market, divided into 4 categories: 'Road & Trail', 'All Tracks/Ultra', 'Mountain Trail' and 'Racing'. Men's and women's models were ranked separately.
After a blind static test and dynamic test (on the same route for each model in any given category), the testers chose their favourites. Men's and women's Kiprun Trail XT6 were chosen in the 'All Tracks/Ultra' category, while men's Kiprace Trail 3 were also selected as a favourite in the 'Racing' category'.
According to Endurance Trails, women's Kiprun Trail XT6 shoes are:'By far best value for money in this selection' (All Tracks/Ultra*), men's Kiprun Trail XT6 provide: 'Impeccable grip and cushioning' and, men's Kiprace Trail 3 are:'Indisputably the best shoes in this category' (Racing*).
*All Tracks/Ultra: All types of terrain: rolling, with elevation changes, medium and long distance. Focus on shoes' comfort, cushioning and grip.
