Inov8 Mudclaw G 260 V2 Trail Running Shoes
The world's toughest mud running shoe just got even tougher. The MUDCLAW G 260 V2 features the same fearsome 8mm Graphene-Grip rubber studs as its predecessor but now boasts a new micro-fibre rand material for extra durability and protection in the forefoot. Whether on mountains or obstacle courses, make light work of tough mud and soft ground in the MUDCLAW G 260 V2.
Inov8 Shoe Fit Scale
For technical footwear, a good fit is essential to enhance your performance. Inov8's new Shoe Fit Scale makes it easier to find the perfect fitting shoe. All Inov8 shoes are designed with Met-Cradle technology to lock down the mid-foot for a stable hold, where they differ is in the toe box. The shoes are now graded from 1 to 5, Grade 1 representing their closest, most precise fit and Grade 5 representing the widest fitting toe box.
The lower the number on the scale, the narrower the fit, which ensures minimal internal movement of the foot when running fast on technical terrain. Shoes with the higher numbers on the scale will suit athletes with a wider foot and those wanting that extra comfort in the toe box. This wider toe box allows the toes to splay for increased stability when lifting heavy weights. It's also perfect for longer runs and races when toes begin to swell.
Inov8 have graded the Mudclaw G260 v2 Trail Running Shoes as Grade 1.
Breathable Mesh Upper
Designed to provide comfort and protection, the Inov8 Mudclaw G 260 V2 Trail Running Shoes have been constructed using a durable mesh. The mesh that covers the upper offers lightweight and breathable coverage, allowing air to fully permeate the entire footbed, creating a more enjoyable experience for you as a runner and keeps your feet cool and comfortable when the temperatures rise. The upper also features a new micro-fibre rand that works to deliver extra durability and protection in the forefoot. The rand provide support so you'll always feel locked-in plus, it increases durability so you'll have complete confidence on uneven and tough terrain. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
Infused with exteroflow, the midsole provides high levels of underfoot cushioning without compromising on ground feel. The cushioning absorbs, stores and then releases energy to propel you through the gait cycle. By minimising shocks when your foot hits the ground, the midsole ensures a smooth, comfortable transition and reduces the risks of repetitive injury. A next-generation meta-plate provides ample underfoot protection. The lightweight, flexible rock plate align with the foot's metatarsals to provide lightweight stability, support, and protection on uneven rocky terrain. Completing the midsole is the 4mm drop which promotes a better natural form when running, allowing a medium range of motion in the ankle joint and reducing tension on muscles and tendons.
Graphene Grip Outsole
Utilising the world strongest material, these G-series shoes use graphene-enhanced rubber which is 50% stronger, 50% more elastic and 50% more hardwearing to create an all-around trail running shoe. The revolutionary Graphene Grip technology is the toughest and most durable outsole compound that Inov8 has ever created, arguably the toughest and most durable outsole compound on earth. Graphene Grip is scientifically proven to be 50% stronger, 50% more elastic, and 50% harder wearing. The durable nature of the tough rubber provides peace of mind when running on uneven, rocky terrain whilst the added elastic provides multi-directional flexibility ideal for trail running. 8mm studs claw through mud and stick to wet, rocky terrain ensure traction on a wide range of surfaces.
