"The ultimate in comfort and grip, this off-road ultra running shoe oozes innovation and meets the needs of this rapidly growing tribe. Be it on trails or mountains, this highly durable, lightweight shoe delivers industry-leading grip, courtesy of the Tri-C endurance outsole, which boasts three different rubber compounds. It also has a unique on-the-shoe gaiter attachment system and an X-STATIC footbed to keep both debris and odors at bay."
Wayne Edy, founder of Inov-8:
“Off-road ultra runners who compete in grueling races, some of which can last days, weeks, need the most comfortable, durable shoes with outstanding grip – and that is what we have delivered - Key to this was the engineering of a Tri-C endurance outsole. Softer, sticky rubber on the edges brings greater traction, while high abrasion rubber at the heel improves durability and allows for heel striking when fatigued. The sticky rubber cleats bring outstanding mid-foot grip - The shoe upper has been designed to ensure minimum friction and maximum comfort. This is achieved through a 360 degree rand, gusseted tounge, integrated gaiter clips and an X–STATIC footbed.”MODELS
