A new lightweight, breathable upper ensures a comfortable fit, keeping your feet cool in hot weather while the next generation ADAPTERFIT technology allows the shoe to adapt as the foot swells over longer distances. Sticky rubber outsoles with multi-directional cleats deliver exceptional grip, allowing you to race with confidence over the most unpredictable terrain. The TRAILTALON 290, the perfect shoe for long training runs and ultra-marathons over the world’s most rugged trails. Push the distance in confidence and comfort.
PHENOMENAL GRIP – Iconic inov-8 rubber outsoles with multi-directional claw-shaped 4mm studs, each with a wide contact area, allow the quick release of debris and provide unrivalled grip and stability over rocky terrain.
RESPONSIVE CUSHIONED RIDE – The two-piece POWERFLOW midsole, constructed from two compounds – one designed to optimise comfort and the other to maximise energy return – delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsoles. An inbuilt Dynamic Fascia Band (DFB) mimics the “Windlass Effect”, delivering a kick of energy with each step, helping you run faster more efficiently.
INCREASED FLEXIBILITY AND COMFORT – An 8mm drop offers comfort, while new highly-durable lightweight upper materials offer breathability and protection. Built around the natural anatomic structure of the foot, the next generation ADAPTERFIT met-cradle adapts to the natural movement and swelling of the foot on longer runs.
SUPPORT – An External Heel Cage (EHC) wraps around the rear of the shoe and provides support in the heel – aiding foot stability and helping maintain a better gait when fatigued.
INCREASED PROTECTION – The new upper features extended welded TPU overlays and a rubber toe bumper to protect the foot from sharp rocks and stones. On-the-shoe gaiter hooks allow you to attach an ALL TERRAIN GAITER for additional protection, keeping loose debris out of the shoe.
