Salomon Exo III Calf
[We no longer have the Exo III Calf in stock, please check out its successor, the Salomon Exo IV Calf.]
BOOM! For more than two years, I’ve been searching for Salomon’s Exo Calf in North America. Seriously. Last summer, I was fortunate enough to pick up a pair of the Exo Calf III while in Europe. I raced the entire 2009 Leadville 100 in them (sub-20 hours) before sadly losing one. Now, after a long delay, I can share them with the rest of North America (and others, as well).
While I normally write much of iRunFar’s content in the third person, this is one place where I’ll throw my full voice in a vote of confidence. When I race, I wear Salomon’s Exo Calves and I did so long before iRunFar had a store. I’ve worn them for races as short as 15 minutes on a treadmill all the way up to 100 miles. Heck, I’ve worn the Exo Calf at media events put on by competing brands. When I only had one Exo Calf, I wore it without regard for how I looked. If you need a vote of confidence, there you have it!
Salomon’s sales blurb for the Exo III Calf reads “EXO SENSIFIT technology provides support and increased bloodflow to calf muscles, improving both performance and recovery. A must-have for serious trail runners.” What that blurb doesn’t include that I learned from the EXO developers last summer: if you use one piece of compression apparel, the calves are the place to wear it.
