NEW COLORS

As in 2016, the XT6 was voted favourite product in 2017 in the "All Tracks" category of the Big Test Shoes of the Trails by Endurance magazine: "A model that brings a smile to your lips and is almost perfect".Approved by users and recognized through numerous tests in the trail specialized press (Endurance Trails, Runner's, Outside, Trail) last year, the XT6 get a new look in 2017 with new colors.

These trail shoes are designed to cover up the ultra-trail in both training and competition.

NO COMPROMISE GRIP

Built similarly as the 2016 XT6 model with a no compromise grip thanks to the 5mm lugs, the 2017 XT6's sole has also an optimum clogging prevention (expels mug and plants) ease by well positionned "delta" lugs. Moreover, the grooved heel has also lugs allowing safety at each stride.

FULL CUSHIONING

- Heel with a 10mm drop; the K-ring concept (with its shape of donut) protects the calcaneum spine.

- Mid-foot, the first inner sole in EVA gives a cushiony sensation

- At the front, the In'up Insert to the metatarso-phalengian articulation gives cushioning and energy restitution for a good front propulsion.

ROBUSTNESS

The XT6 uses a mesh much more resistant than the previous model (XT5).

The sewn design of the shoe enhances the robutness of the product.

COMFORT

To better adapt to the different volumes of feet, the volume of the footwear is more generous.

The shoelace pocket is still present on the tongue to accomodate your knots or excess laces in order to prevent them from unravelling or snagging with vegetation.

Très (trop) fragiles !!!!!

J'ai acheté les XT6 la semaine dernière pour des trails en montagne.
Première sortie avec il y a deux jours sur un parcours de 25 km et le ressenti est positif : chaussures très précises, bonne tenue du pied, accroche au rendez-vous et amortie suffisant. Seul hic, à l'arrivée je m' aperçois que le mesh sur l’extérieur du pied est déjà abîmé sur les deux chaussures et est même à la limite du trou sur l'une d'entre elles!
Cette très grande fragilité et de ce fait cette durée de vie très courte sont à l'origine de ma déception pour un produit qui paraissait à l'originetrès prometteur.
Au vue de ces éléments, je ne les recommande pas pour de la montagne mais plutôt pour des courses natures (sentiers, champs, forêts...).
Point à travailler ++ pour la prochaine version.

Cordialement

Brand response :

Bonjour Monsieur et merci pour votre avis concernant les chaussures kalenji kiprun trail XT6. La conception de ce modèle ayant changé dans le courant de l'année dernière pour lui garantir une grande robustesse via notamment l'adoption d'une nouveau tissu mesh et un assemblage cousu plutôt que collé, pourriez-vous m'envoyez une photo de votre modèle et de la zone abîmée. Cela me permettra de vérifier le modèle dont vous disposez. Je ne manquerai pas de revenir vers vous pour vous proposer une solution adaptée.
Cordialement

    Ok - but avoid certain terrain

    I've used the shoes for fast walking on moorland and they offer good grip. However, grip is very poor when walking on wet stones or tarmac. If you're running in areas where you're likely to come into contact with wet stone, they could prove dangerous.
    I've changed the insoles to some with better arch support and they've been comfy, with no blisters or foot problems.

    Der ideale Trail Schuh

    Ich habe den Schuh nun ausgiebig im Schwarzwald getestet und bin absolut zufrieden. Die Dämpfung ist ausreichend für den weichen Waldboden. Außerdem bietet der Schuh einen perfekten Halt, was außerordentlich wichtig ist beim Trailrunning. Auch auf Waldwegen hat mich der Schuh überzeugt. Anfangs war ich etwas skeptisch ob das grobe Profil auf ebenen Wegen nicht etwas störend ist. Ich wurde jedoch eines anderen belehrt.

    Wer Lust auf einen agilen und schnellen Trailrunning Schuh hat, der ist mit diesem Produkt bestens beraten.
