Compound : Sticky
Inov-8’s Sticky™ compound has been specially developed using climbing rubber technology. This rubber optimises grip in wet conditions, however the trade off is it wears down quicker.
The Meta-Flex™ is a groove in the forefoot that provides a natural flex point in the shoe, allowing the forefoot to function naturally with each step.
All our shoes have been given an antimicrobial treatment, ensuring bacteria is unable to build up and eliminating unwanted smells and odour.
About Offroad Running Shoes
Offroad or "trail" shoes offer increased outsole traction and uppers with toe bumpers and reinforced stitching for more durability. The foot often sits slightly lower to the ground than usual for stability and responsiveness. Offroad shoes often have less cushioning than a road shoe because they're designed for softer surfaces. You should choose offroad shoes if you do a lot of off-road running and need shoes with extra traction, more durable uppers and extra protection from the terrain.
