Inov8 Race Ultra 290
A sturdy training shoe with an impressive racing pedigree, the Inov8 Race Ultra 290 is ideally-suited for long-distance trail runners seeking durable protection and reliable off-road performance.
The shoe’s upper features a 4-Bar TPU Overlay System for enhanced support and greater structural integrity at the midfoot, while a breathable Synthetic Mesh ensures light, well-ventilated comfort throughout. There’s also a perforated, 6mm X-Static Footbed to combat bacterial build-up and provide additional impact protection and cushioning.
The upper rides atop an Injected EVA Foam Midsole with a Two Arrow Shoc-Zone for resilient underfoot cushioning and maximum memory retention; and there’s a Dynamic Fascia Band running from heel-to-toe for improved energy release and maximum forward propulsion. A 5-Finger MetaShank in outsole also aligns perfectly with every metatarsal in the foot for greater efficacy and improved flexibility through the stride.
4mm Outsole Lugs also ensure reliable, multi-directional grip over all surfaces in all conditions. The shoe’s Tri Endurance Outsole is comprised of three different types of rubber – high abrasion rubber at the heel; soft, sticky rubber round the edges; and a high-density, robust rubber core.
At its core, X-STATIC® XT2™ leverages the anti-odour properties of silver - used since the days of ancient Greece to inhibit bacterial growth. It’s unique silver technology keeps athletes feeling fresh throughout their workout, allowing them to perform free of distractions.
X-STATIC® XT2™ incorporates pure silver in a synthetic fibre during the co-extrusion process, providing permanent anti-odour protection. Not a nanotechnology or a complex chemical formula, just silver. X-STATIC® XT2™ is not a finish or treatment; therefore the silver will not wash out or wear off and lasts the life of the product.
Meta-Shank™ Generation III
Multi finger polymer Meta-Shank™ aligns with each individual metatarsal for increased benefit from the ‘Windlass Effect’, whilst retaining underfoot impact protection and flexibility.
All our shoes have been given an antimicrobial treatment, ensuring bacteria is unable to build up and eliminating unwanted smells and odour.
