|The brand new Salming Kobra is a fast paced unique combination of lightweight, cushioning and stability. Together with all the unique Salming technologies, Kobra is wrapped up into one agile shoe.
A new Wrap Around System Design (WAS Design)
In order to facilitate agility and stability but still maintain the lightweight characteristics, we have designed the midsole rear end with higher side walls that wraps around the heel area. In combination with the LMS Plus 8° and the new fully integrated ExoSkeleton construction, it ensures anexcellent stability and perfect fit.
ExoSkeleton™ fully integrated!
Kobras ExoSkeleton design is totally integrated with the lacing construction in order to facilitate the best possible wrap-around effect of the foot. This keeps the foot it in the right position during lateral movements and high performance activities.
LMS - Lateral Movement Stabilizer
An especially designed composite unit integrated into the midsole, that supports the foot during fast and irregular lateral movements.
LMS Plus 8° and RollBar™ technology
A winning combination - the 8°™ angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe helps avoid the risk of ankle injury and our innovative RollBar™- technology on the inner outsole edge, enables quicker and better lateral push-off.
Recoil™ midsole with Recoil R™ heel insert
The material in the midsole is a newly developed compound named RECOIL™ which is a super lightweight cushioning compound that releases a higher rebound energy effect. The Recoil R™ - as in Recoil Reduction - is acushioning compound featured in the heel impact zone designed to reduce impact forces and increase comfort when lunging. Recoil R™ has 70% better shock absorbing properties than standard EVA midsole. The Recoil™ and Recoil R™ - creates a sandwich construction made to maximize your performance.
A new very durable lightweight rubber compound - HX120 - that features Salmings HexaGrip™ pattern designed for the best possible grip on all indoor surfaces.
Salming’s unique T.G.S. 62/75°
At the core of the shoe’s design, as on all Salming shoes by the way, you will find Salming’s T.G.S. 62/75° system. This unique system spe cifically designates the distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) in order to optimize stability, comfort, and performance. Key to this design is the firmer, stabilizing section which ends at the ball of the foot at the socalled “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equippedSalming Kobra with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot’s natural movements.
