Salomon Ultra Glide 2 vs HOKA Speedgoat 5

Salomon Ultra Glide 2 vs HOKA Speedgoat 5

The Salomon Ultra Glide and the Hoka Speedgoat are arguably the two best regarded mixed terrain trail runners on the market today. Salomon, the dominant trail shoe brand of the past decade

The Hoka Speedgoat has become the trail running equivalent of the Nike Vaporfly -ubiquitous at any race. The main reason for this is the Speedgoat's plush, bouncy midsole providing maximum comfort over long distances. Backing it up is the sticky Vibram Megagrip outsole, the best mixed terrain traction on the market. The Speedgoat's rocker offers a very fun ride compared to the Ultra Glide's more serious attitude. This combination of best-in-class cushion and overall best traction is why it's the current favorite.
