Kailas Fuga EX Trail Running Shoes
Fuga EX is also called Endurance Expert, a well-cushioned and comfortable shoe specially designed for ultra runs. It has been favored by many top runners ever since it was launched. Among them is Martin Perrier, who won 40th place in the UTMB race this year wearing Fuga EX in the second half of the race.
Compared with Fuga Pro 3, it has a 0.6 cm thicker Eccvai midsole, which provides much more rebound and cushion for extra long trips. It features a Vibram Megagrip outsole, which offers exceptionally strong grip on all kinds of terrain. Shop here
Kailas Elite Trail Running Shoes
As its name implies, this shoe is designed for elite runners. A full-length carbon fiber plate is embedded in the midsole to boost you constantly. PEBA is also used in its midsole. It is lighter, more bouncy and returns more energy than traditional EVA materials. This shoe is a model for now and will be launched next year.

It features an innovative ADF (All-round Dial Fit) chest adjustment system, which contains a dial, lace and lace guide to provide a snug fit and reduce bouncing.
