Breathable Mesh Upper
Run fast with confidence, weighing just 240g and with a 4mm drop, this is a flexible and responsive shoe that allows quick running whilst still delivering comfort, protection and support. Engaging a fusion of technical road technologies unified into one sleek, aggressive upper the RoadTalon 240 epitomises what a road shoe should be. The new generation upper has undergone design tweaks to yield improved responsiveness and flexibility for greater comfort and now features a Synthetic Mesh that covers the upper for lightweight, breathable coverage.
Supporting the midfoot and securing a lockdown fit the RoadTalon 240 utilises the new ADAPTERWEB met-cradle design. The upper webbing support on the shoe is built around the natural anatomy of the foot to cradle the forefoot behind the metatarsal heads and provide a secure foot hold. The mesh provides a dynamic fit and feel whilst allowing air to permeate the interior keeping the foot cool and refreshed.
Run effortlessly over any snow and ice with unique POWER-FLOW midsole technology. POWERFLOW delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsoles. The reliable underfoot shock attenuation compound gives for greater comfort over the miles by reducing forces pressed upon the underfoot platform for a clean stride through the transition. 1 Arrow Shoc-Zone provides moderate underfoot cushioning and a 4 mm heel-to-toe drop.
Coinciding with the Midsole engineering a Dynamic Fascia Band running from the heel to the forefoot acts as a rigid lever arm, releasing energy with each step and propelling the runner forward with an explosive take-off.
The Iconic inov-8 outsole grip is optimised for road running. Every ounce of energy generated by the body is transferred to the road through the outsole, with TRI-C outsole delivering traction throughout the gait cycle. The Sticky Fusion Compound is a mix of synthetic rubber and EVA foam for a smooth ride and grip on the road while Meta-Flex groove is located at the forefoot to encourage natural forefoot flex during toe-off. At the rear, a Terradapter heel unit provides added protection and durability at heel strike. 100% sure-footed on any road. Grip and stability delivered through a patent-pending claw-cleat lug design.
