Created for hard-packed trail blazers who crave the ultimate equilibrium of speed and cushioning.
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in durable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Inov8 employ their ADAPTERFIT met-cradle to wrap the midfoot in firm support, reducing in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. Created with both motion and anatomy in mind, the next generation technology adapts to the natural movement and swelling of the foot as it powers through the gait cycle. An integrated gusseted tongue ensures kicked-up dirt and debris are kept out of your way, plus on-the-shoe gaiter hooks offer a secure attachment system for when you need the extra protection of Inov8's RACE ULTRA GAITER. The wide fit of the shoe allows for comfortable toe splay, a good option for those with a slightly larger forefoot.
Two-piece POWERFLOW resides in the midsole to supply plush underfoot cushion and comfort, letting you run effortlessly over any terrain. POWERFLOW delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsoles; so your joints are spared as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces and the use of superfluous muscle power is reduced; diminishing fatigue and keeping you driven for longer.
Embedded between the midsole and the outsole, the Dynamic Fascia Band works to deliver a kick of energy with every stride, increasing your speed and efficiency. The patented technology replicates the anatomical position of the plantar fascia ligament and duplicates the function of the human foot's ability to utilise the 'windlass effect. The band extends forward along the outsole and divides, just as the human fascia divides, into five bands that terminate anterior to the metatarsal heads. As body weight moves forward and the toes begin to extend, tension on the band increases. When the heel leaves the ground, the Dynamic Fascia Band resists elongation of the medial arch and carries the entire body weight of the runner, converting the shoe into a rigid propulsive lever. A TriC Sole completes the TRAILTALON 275. This carefully considered combination of three rubber compounds means you get maximum durability and grip on all hard and rocky terrain, wet and dry. A truly unique sole design: it uses soft, sticky rubber on the toe and arch areas for improved grip, medium sticky rubber on the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot and heel to increase stability, plus hard rubber at the heel for an improved wear rate. Multi-directional, 4mm deep lugs exist to supply versatile traction. Each with a wide contact area, they provide aggressive grip, underfoot stability and quick release of any debris. The Meta-Flex, a deep groove in the forefoot, adorns the outsole to promote natural forefoot flexion; letting you run unhindered. For the athletes who yearn for lightweight comfort, cushion and speed on the trail, choose the TRAILTALON 275.
