The Inov 8 X Talon 225 is an agile shoe for a quick pace over tough terrain. Ideal for fell races and mountain marathons the precision fit is designed so that you have as little movement as possible within the shoe without compromising feel for the terrain underfoot. It has an extra 1mm of drop compared to the Talon 212, giving it a 4mm drop, though it is not significantly heavier. The X-Talon 225 offers a little more durability than the X-Talon 212 in both sole rubber and upper.
Designed to provide the best grip off road the claw cleat stud configuration has been refined to allow mud and debris to release easily so you don't lose grip when running on loose ground. The rubber has also been improved and is now a Dual-C rubber compound which is a mix of medium and hard sticky rubbers to give maximum grip on rock whilst maintaining excellent stability and durability.
The X Talon 225 feels fast with small cutaways on the outsole to increase the flexibility and a Dynamic Fascia Band which will deliver a kick of energy on every stride helping you feel more lively and alert. The toe box is reinforced to provide good protection on the descents and the upper is impregnated with a DWR coating to keep the worst of the wet ground out.
The X Talon 225 is the next generation of X Talon race shoe doing everything the 212 does but better.
