Salomon is getting a head start on Black Friday
You can save up to 25% on top styles
Early deals run through November 20th
Honestly, how did we get here? I don’t mean the part about kicking off with a play on words — that’s par for the course. I mean how did we get to the holidays again? It feels like we just finished summer vacation, and Halloween was practically last week, but here we are, gearing up for Black Friday already. Well, at least we’re not the only ones getting an early start on things. Salomon is right there with us, ready to jump off the starting line.
Ya know what, there’s just something about Salomon’s trail-ready gear that just feels right for the holidays, too. Nothing beats lacing up a pair of waterproof Gore-Tex (GTX) boots to go cut down a Christmas tree or slipping on an S/Lab hydration vest for a long day at the mall. You know the drill. If you don’t have either of those holiday essentials, well, you’ve come to the right place. These are, after all, the earliest of the early Black Friday savings.
With that in mind, let’s not waste any more time. Salomon is offering solid sales of up to 25% across several categories, including trail running shoes, apparel, and accessories. We’ve picked out a few favorites from each set to get your list started, whether you check it twice or not.
Where better to start than with one of Salomon’s most approachable trail shoes? The Sense Ride 5 is a well-cushioned crusher with a versatile Contagrip outsole and accommodating SensiFit upper. It’s a great way to dip your toe into the trail scene without spending extra cash on fancy tech or carbon fiber plates.
PRICE: $105 (Was $140)
The Speedcross is as classic Salomon as they come. It’s a highly aggressive trail runner that’s started making waves in the fashion world, too. Salomon’s signature mountain climber has a steeper 10 mm drop and deeper, more aggressive lugs to help you rip your way up the trails in several vibrant colorways.
PRICE: $109 (Was $145)
Our third trail running shoe pick swings back to the max cushion side of the scene. Salomon’s Ultra Glide 2 is built like the Sense Ride, with a plush bed of padding underfoot as well as the classic Contagrip outsole — it just goes a bit further in terms of protection.
PRICE: $112 (Was $150)
If you’re looking for a solid beginner running shoe that still handles almost any terrain, look no further than the Pulsar Trail. With Contagrip outsole and a quick lace system, you’re getting some of the nicer parts of Salomon at a lower price point. Do you want to wear it for an ultra? Probably not, but for those shorter trail runs in the under-10 mile range, it’s hard to beat this shoe at this price point.
PRICE: $170 (Was $140)
The Sense Pro 10 is Salomon’s women-specific running vest, pairing a carefully designed fit with a solid 10L of storage. On top of the Sense Pro 10’s flexible storage, the vest itself weighs almost nothing. It barely tips the scales at 166 g when empty and doesn’t get too much heavier at only 257 g when you add the soft hydration flasks.
PRICE: $117 (Was $180)
Although the Salomon XT 15 Bladder isn’t really designed for speed, it’s probably your best bet when it comes to plentiful storage on long hikes. It comes with a sizable 15L capacity, complete with plenty of options for hydration, including a 2L rear bladder and a pair of 500mL flasks on the straps.
PRICE: $78 (Was $120)
Sometimes you don’t have to go for the big-ticket item or hunt down the biggest discount. Honestly, a new pair of running gloves goes a long, long way — especially when they’re waterproof. These Bonatti gloves meet the lofty UTMB requirements for wind and water resistance, meaning that they’re even good enough for the pros with their Pertex protection.
PRICE: $31 (Was $45)
The best part about many of Salomon’s mountain-ready pieces is that they come in unisex sizing. Why is this great, well, so you can share with hiking friends or significant others, of course. This Outlife Polartec Half Zip is just begging to be stolen by someone who needs a little extra warmth before the hike or while snuggled up in a sleeping bag, isn’t it?
PRICE: $70 (Was $140)
If you’re not sure about a cozy Polartec layer, there’s always space for another windbreaker. The Bonatti Aero is in the same collection as the gloves mentioned above, meaning that it’s lightweight but ready to perform. The all-white look matches just about any other piece of running gear, and the jacket weighs just 89 g and packs right down into one of its own pockets.
PRICE: $84 (Was $120)
We can debate the fairness of women’s tights costing more than men’s tights later, but for now, let’s just save some money. Salomon’s classic Cross Run tights are on sale for both men and women, and Black Friday is a perfect time to stock up. After all, Winter GRIT is on its way, and you’re going to want all the warm gear you can muster.
PRICE: Men – $56 (Was $80), Women – $67 (Was $95)
I’d have to say that we already picked out some great Salomon Black Friday deals, but we obviously didn’t hit them all.
