Salomon is romancing the road runner with the latest addition to their CityTrail range, the X-Scream. Running in variable terrain means the outsole needs to try and provide grip for as many conditions as possible. Salomon uses a mixture of Contragrip LT and Contragrip HA, each with a different density; the combination grips well on both dirt and tar. The cushioning is adequate for training and daily use, and is suited to neutral runners.
