Inov-8 is getting into the off-road ultra distance game with the release of the Race Ultra 290 shoe.
“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,” said Wayne Edny, founder of Inov-8.
The 2014 ISPO award-winning shoe is equipped with industry leading grip thanks to its Tri-C endurance outsole, consisting of three different rubber compounds.
“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,” said Edny. “The sticky rubber cleats bring outstanding mid-foot grip.”
In addition to its grip, the shoe is also designed to deliver optimal cushioning and comfort through the use of sensory feedback. As the foot swells during long races, the athlete receives greater comfort. Set for a July release in the United Kingdom, keep coming back to Sneaker Report for details regarding a stateside drop.
