The x-talon 212 is the “racing shoe” of the inov-8 trail range. Exceptionally light, and aggressively grippy, runners who love mountains love this shoe too.
The upper is surprisingly hard wearing, but the x-talon is built on a narrow last – so won’t fit all feet.
Our recommendation is that you don’t use the x-talon 212 for runs over 2 hours on harder surfaces, e.g. gravel roads. The wide spacing of the studs means you will start to feel the surface.
Best to use a shoe with a roclite sole for longer distances.
Weight: 212g (UK size 8)
Ideal/Recommended Activity: Mountain Running, Hill Running, Mountain Marathon, Cross Country
Ideal/Recommended Terrain: Loose rock, dry rock, wet rock, dry grass, mixed terrain, mud.
The X Talon sole is the sole of choice among competitive athletes that run predominantly on softer surfaces. The studs are long and reasonably spaced to provide maximum grip when the going gets wet.
