Fell

The Inov-8 Junior X-Talon 160 is a super lightweight trail shoe with a low profile midsole. Very comfortable, stable and grippy, with a sticky rubber outsole.

  • Meta Flex - incorporates a meta-flex groove which is anatomically aligned in front of the metatarsal heads to provide a natural fore foot flex
  • Met Cradle - the upper webbing support in Inov-8's footwear is anatomically positioned to cradle the fore foot behind the metatarsal heads and provide a secure foot hold.
  • Fascia Band - a replication of the plantar fascia ligament to increase propulsion efficiency and reduce fatigue
  • High Levels of Breathability - ensures a cool and dry climate for your feet
  • Sticky Rubber Compound - this shoe uses Inov8's exclusive sticky rubber compund which has been specially developed using climbing rubber technology. This rubber optimizes grip in wet conditions, however the trade off is it wears down quicker.
  • Performance Last - precise fitting last ensures minimal internal movement when contouring, ascending and descending.
  • TPU Lacing Support - lacing attached polymer upper supports and cradles the foot more evenly.
  • Unisex - built on a last based of an average runner's foot giving a good fit for both male and female

A great buy for serious trail runners looking for a lightweight shoe which combines great grip with great comfort so you can take on anything the trail throws at you.

Shoes

Performanceupper.jpg

Performance Uppers

Quick drying mesh uppers give high breathability. Met-Cradle webbing secures 1st & 5th metatarsal in natural position, firmly holding forefoot in place while maintaining natural metatarsal alignment.


Direct.jpg

Direct Underfoot Comfort

Standard 6mm or 3mm interchangeable footbed with rebound inserts for fine tuning and comfort.


Optimum.jpg

Optimum Cushion

Moulded cupped MidShoc midsole provides the best balance between comfort and underfoot sensitivity.


Shank4.jpg

Meta-shank patent pending

Moulded stiffener with META-FLEX grooves allows metatarsals to take their natural alignment when contouring.


Grip.jpg

Ultimate Grip

Our specially designed outsoles use both our endurance compound and our unique inov-8 sticky rubber compound for extra performance and grip on race day.


For technical footwear a good fit is essential to enhance your performance while running. This is achieved through combining the key elements such as the last and the lacing system. Inov-8 have developed several lasts modelled around the actual shape of a foot, ensuring a secure heel hold while allowing the forefoot to assume a natural unrestricted position throughout the complete running cycle.

Performance1.jpg

Performance Last

Precise fitting last ensures minimal internal movement when contouring, ascending and descending.


Endurance1.jpg

Endurance Last

Generous fitting last offering a comfortable fit. Ideal comfort for training and long distances.

All our shoes give the option for high front lacing which is designed to ensure a good heel hold. This in conjunction with our low heel cut gives the ankle joint a larger range of motion and less pressure on the Achilles heel.


Webbing1.jpg

Webbing upper support

Lacing attached to nylon webbing, cradles and secures the upper behind the metatarsal heads.


Tcu.jpg

TPU lacing

Upper support Lacing attached to polymer upper supports, cradles the foot more evenly.


Structure.jpg

Structure lacing upper support

Lacing attached to synthetic upper cradles and distributes pressure across the metatarsals.


Flex.jpg

Meta-flex (registered design)

All our footwear incorporates a meta-flex groove which is anatomically aligned in front of the metatarsal heads to provide a natural fore foot flex.


Shank.jpg

Meta-shank (patent pending)

New 5-finger meta-shank aligns with each individual metatarsal for greater flexibility when contouring while retaining underfoot impact protection.


Terra.jpg

Terra-shank (registered design)

Polymer shank positioned behind the metatarsal heads providing underfoot protection and extra stability primarily for additional support on longer adventures.


Dual.jpg

Dual Density Posting

The dual density midsole as featured on the flyroc 310 (flyroc 284 W's), roclite 320, terroc 330 (terroc 308 W’s), and roclite 390 GTX has a dense posting on the medial and lateral side leaving a channel down the centre of the shoe to aid flexibility and movement while keeping the shoe neutral. The posting is an aid towards preventing supination and over-pronation.


Biplanar2.jpg

Bi-Planar registered design

Sole design whereby the heel section is curved in two planes aligning with the natural curvature of the heel. This provides a more natural and earlier heel strike to aid descending and contouring.


Cradle.jpg

Met-cradle (registered design)

The upper webbing support in our footwear is anatomically positioned to cradle the fore foot behind the metatarsal heads and provide a secure foot hold.


Shoc-Zone

Our range of products give runners a choice of midsole cushioning denoted by an arrow system moulded into the midsoles.

Shoc.jpg

Traction

One of the most important elements of runner’s footwear is the weight. Our footwear is some of the lightest in the market and to show this we use a unique naming system based on the outsole name and the weight of an average size UK8 shoe. E.g. a Flyroc 310 is built on the Flyroc sole unit and the shoe weighs about 310gms.

Sticky.jpg

Some of our shoes use our exclusive ‘sticky’ rubber compound which has been specially developed using climbing rubber technology. This rubber optimizes grip in wet conditions, however the trade off is it wears down quicker.


Endurance.jpg

Our endurance rubber compound has been formulated for an optimal balance on wear and mixed terrain grip.


Translucent.jpg

Our translucent outsole as used on most of the PK models uses a non-marking rubber compound.

"Good comfort and grip excelent. My son has been using them inside and out and for cross country races (better grip than spikes). Only negative is that already the coloures flashes on the side of the shoes has started to fall off (within less than one month). Same issue with another pair of inov-8 trail shoes purchased at same time. Wait to see if the two other pairs of inov-8 shoes do the same(but those were for road use) to decide if an issue with inov-8, or not."
