Reinvention at its finest. The TRAILROC™ has undergone a complete redesign and is now back in inov-8’s trail running range for AW17. More protection, more support, more comfort, greater energy return and improved grip. The new TRAILROC™ 270 & 285 are now better equipped to deal with all hard-packed trails around the world, no matter how rocky. Perfect for running long miles, the TRAILROC™ 285 offers more protection, support and comfort over hard and rocky trails. Supreme grip and all-over protection combined with increased heel support, a cushioned midsole and durable upper, deliver the ultimate shoe for training on hard and rocky trails.
- For running on hardy and rocky terrain.
- Superior grip: The outsole is filled with small studs that cut through any terrain debris and grip firm to the hard trail underneath.
- Superior grip II: The studs are placed in a pattern that ensures no debris clogs up between them. The many studs also help dispel downward pressure when a runner’s foot lands on the trail.
- Superior grip III: Using three sticky rubber compounds increases grip and durability. The hardest, most durable rubber is on the heel, with a softer rubber up the centre for increased traction and a medium rubber on the edges for grip and security with every foot strike.
- Stay protected: 5th generation META-PLATE is a rock plate that delivers the ultimate in underfoot protection, so a runner feels no pain from sharp rocks. The band also flexes with the foot’s natural running gait, delivering a kick of energy with every stride.
- Stay protected II: Super-robust External Toe Cap protects the toes from rocks and other debris that may be accidentally kicked or tripped over when running on the trail.
- Extra cushioned ride: New Powerflow+ midsole delivers 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard midsoles.
- Get more support: The External Heel Counter wraps around the rear of the shoe and provides support in the heel. Delivering this extra hold aids foot stability and helps a fatigued runner maintain a better gait.
- Get more support II: New, improved Met-Cradle+ wraps around the midfoot, from the laces to the midsole, ensuring a secure, locked down fit for the foot and extra support for the arch of the foot.
