Inov8 Race Ultra 290 – "Eats hard miles for breakfast"
A sturdy training shoe with an impressive racing pedigree, the Inov8 Race Ultra 290 is ideally-suited to 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 on the inner 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 a variety of surfaces in wet and dry conditions, while the Tri Endurance Outsole incorporates three separate rubber elements for superior functionality. There's high abrasion rubber at the heel for added impact protection; soft, sticky rubber around the edges for touchdown grip and maximum tackiness; and high-density, robust rubber at the core for superior high-wear durability.
