Surge through the trails with unrelenting traction in the Inov-8 X-Talon 225. Featuring a Dual-C rubber outsole with an aggressive lug configuration, this performance trail shoe offers sticky grip to take on the toughest of terrain.

Upper

The Inov8 X-Talon 225 Trail Unisex Running Shoes is composed of a synthetic Mesh which covers the upper for lightweight, breathable coverage. The ventilated construction actively allows air to permeate the interior footbed for reliable freshness to the feet. Get more miles out of your shoes: Industry-leading lightweight upper material increases durability. The material, combined with the new mesh tongue, further aids shoe breathability and comfort.

The upper construction is covered with a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment, this is water resistant and breathable layer that provides partial weather protection from rainy days but does not fully diminish the effect if the weather gets more intense.

Cradling the upper structure, Inov8's Met-Cradle is a synthetic webbing upper that links the eyelets and supports the forefoot, providing a secure fit and feel. It locks the foot in place for a superior hold, bringing the material closer to the foot for better flexibility and responsiveness. Finally, a TPU Lacing System uses TPU lacing supports for a strong, lightweight and secure fit. Working in unison with the eyelets, securing and supporting the foot through transition and enjoy more protection: Reinforced toe box delivers outstanding protection on descents, and against stones and other debris.

Midsole

The midsole for the Inov8 X-Talon 225 is set with an Injected EVA Foam for resilient cushioning with maximum memory retention. The active compound reduces resistance and forces pressed upon the underfoot, engaging a smooth stride through transition and over uneven grounds.

The X-Talon 225 has a 1 Arrow Shoc-Zone. This provides minimal underfoot cushioning and a 4mm heel-to-toe drop. This is Inov8's 2nd lowest level of cushioning on their 0-4 arrow scale. As this takes place a Fascia Band running from the heel to the forefoot acts as a rigid lever arm, releasing energy with each step and propelling the runner forward.

Outsole

The X-Talon is an off-trail outsole built with an aggressive lug pattern. It is ideal for loose rock, grass, mixed terrain or mud. Embedded with a Dual-C Outsole, it combines two different sticky outsole rubbers for added durability and maximized grip. The sticky Rubber helps for optimal performance and maximized grip in wet conditions. Working alongside, Meta-Flex groove is located at the forefoot to encourage natural forefoot flex during toe-off. the small cutaways on the outsole increase flexibility and further reduce weight.

  • Your order is flagged by our system as a possible fraudulent order – apologies if this happens; however the system makes this decision based upon information from banks and other agencies as well as the combination of items ordered; we will contact you to confirm your identity and order before processing such orders.
