The Inov8 X-Talon Ultra 260 are lightweight, long distances shoes designed for comfort and precision over hard trails and paths. Based on the classic off road shoe the X-Claw the x-Talon 260 Ultra has an improved fit and sticky grip, it offers high levels of comfort and lightweight protection. Extra room in the toe box allows for feet to swell, making this shoe ideal for ultra distance and endurance runners who are covering large areas on fells, mountains or over obstacle courses.
Designed for excellent grip over hard and soft ground the X-Talon 260 Ultra has Sticky Grip rubber for better traction in the forefoot over both wet and dry underfoot conditions and an aggressive outsole with 8mm cleats. The cleats are positioned in a pattern designed to ensure mud is released quickly from the outsole so there is no clogging and maximum grip is retained. The Forefoot also features a Meta-Flex groove to give flexibility to allow you to spring forward with speed and power. The PowerFlow midsole technology delivers excellent shock absorption and a better energy return than standard midsoles whilst the wider toe box allows swollen toes to splay.
They feature new ballistic nylon uppers which is lightweight and durable and also DWR treated to repel water. The rand that wraps around the upper and toe bumper ensures outstanding protection against stones and other debris and a gusseted tongue prevents debris from entering the shoe.
