has been making award-winning footwear since
1982, and partnering with Columbia since 2006.
Last spring, Columbia merged its pioneering
spirit with Montrail’s iconic fit, construction,
and technologies to bring you a new era of
world class running gear.
The Spring 2018 collection elevates our reputation
on the trail with new footwear innovation, original
velocity equipment, and race-day layering options
for all-weather trail running. This full head-to-toe
performance line is designed for the elite athlete
and any runner with a passion for the trail.
Advanced cushioning. Versatile midsole with smooth-riding compression-molded cushion support for road or trail. Deep flex grooves for flexibility. Multi-surface terrain.
Our latest multi-terrain innovation: visibly different cushioning. The characteristics of PearlFoam™ utilize the eTPU’s ability to compress upon contact for soft cushioned landings, but quickly push back to their original shape for optimal toe-offs.
Cushioning midsole. Provides multi-directional support and impact absorbing extensive cushioning to smooth out the trails ahead.
Forefoot support. Increases midfoot torsional rigidity and strength and provides tough, puncture-resistant forefoot protection.
More grip, less slip. Sticky carbon rubber and multi-directional tetrahedral lug design delivers aggressive wet/dry traction across all surfaces.
The UTMB® is one of the most challenging and most recognized trail running events in the world. It features five main races—including the flagship 166-kilometer Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc—and thousands of participants running through the stunning landscape of three countries in the Mont Blanc region before finishing in Chamonix. In 2017, Columbia Montrail’s trail running gear was tested tough by UTMB athletes.
Epic adventures are closer than you might think. Sometimes all it takes is an intrepid spirit, some all-weather apparel, and a pair of road-to-trail running shoes. That's the challenge that lay ahead for Ruy Ueda and Sandrine Christin when they agreed to test our latest Columbia Montrail road-to-trail running gear from the neon cacophony of the world's largest city to the serene wilderness atop Mt. Nabewari.
