We don't know how to properly pronounce "Kjerag" either, we just know it stands for one of the fastest-feeling shoes on the planet.

Did you know that the Pulsar SG 2 is just one of a family of shoes from Salomon? The Pulsar Trail 2 Pro may be a touch huskier, but that burliness comes with a host of benefits.
