Sense Ride 5 - The world's most versatile running shoe

Are you looking for one pair of shoes that can accompany you everywhere? Salomon was the first manufacturer to design a running shoe with which you can run literally anywhere – on the road, on a mountain trail, in the city… Now a new generation is available, which is called the Sense Ride 5. With highly durable Energy Foam in the midsole, the Sense Ride 5 is softer than its predecessor, and delivers the right amount of cushioning and responsiveness. The new, more durable All-Terrain Contagrip material on the sole inspires confidence when running on a wide variety of surfaces, even when wet. A light, flexible and durable mesh is used in the upper part of the slipper, which ensures an even more optimal and comfortable grip on the feet. For the Sense Ride 5 shoe, no terrain, distance or speed is a limitation.

Why is Be Active the perfect choice for every runner?

Be Active team believes that quality and comfort come first when we talk about running. We work with the Spanish company SportHG, which manufactures its products entirely, from thread to finished garment, in the seaside town of San Pol de Mar, just a few minutes’ drive from Barcelona. Their products are characterized by Climatherm® fiber, which is pleasant to the touch, dries extremely quickly, and transfers moisture to the outside, thus ensuring that the skin remains dry at all times. It also works well in colder weather, as it is very warm and comfortable. The special processing of the fiber prevents the formation of unpleasant odors when sweating. Many clothes are also compression and thus ensure constant warmth of the muscles. Some of them also contain carbon fibers and thus prevent the formation of static electricity.
