Product description

As the most popular shoe in Inov 8's off-road line, the Men's X-Talon 212 Standard Fit Trail Running Shoe offers outstanding grip and flexibility. Equally at home on speedy trail runs, long hauls on rough mountain terrain, or obstacle-course races, the X-Talon is the choice of top athletes everywhere. The synthetic and TPU upper's DWR treatment helps to repel moisture so your feet have a chance of staying dry on muddy terrain, while a mesh lining allows for breathability.


The injection-molded midsole offers supportive cushioning for comfortable and stable workouts, and Inov 8's signature Rope-Tec technology allows the X-Talon to excel in cross-training situations. The 6mm drop allows you to find the balance between lateral stability and running technique. The X-Talon's sticky rubber outsole offers supreme grip on a wide variety of surfaces.

Question from Daniel | Schliengen

Standard vs. Precision-Fit

Wo kann ich denn aber sehen, ob dieser Schuh nun in der Standard- oder Precision-Fit-Ausführung geliefert wird??

Hallo Daniel,

beider Varianten sind in der Precision-Fit-Ausführung.

Allerdings habe ich festgestellt, dass wir hier das Damen- und das Herrenmodell in einem Artikel zusammen gefasst haben. Wenn Du das Herrenmodell möchtest, musst Du die Farbe "Black / Blue / Chili" auswählen.

Den Fehler habe ich weiter gegeben und müsste zeitnah angepasst werden.

Mach's gut,
Johannes

Question from Miroslav | Goettingen

Standard fit versus "the other one"...

Do you know what is the difference between standard fir and the other option?

Hello Miroslav,

there are two options, standard fit and precision fit ("the other option").

Standard fit: A wider toebox allows the toes to splay. Perfect for the forefoot striker and athletes with a wider foot.

Precision fit: A close, precise fit ensures minimal internal movement. Ideal for athletes with a narrower forefoot.

Cheers,
Johannes

That's fine, I'm happy that I was able to help you.

By the way, that's a great shoe. I run with it for myself. Especially during winter and on muddy ground it's absolute great to run with this shoe.

Bye,
Johannes

Just write me a mail to info@bergfreunde.de, if you want to.

überzeugt !

Habe mir den Schuh als ersatz für meine alten Addidas laufschuhe gekauft. Bis jetzt hatte ich sie zwar nur einen Tag im Alltag und auf einem ca 8km langen Probelauf an, bin aber überzeugt meinen Schuh gefunden zu haben. Die Sohle bietet guten Grip auf weichen und lockeren Böden / im Wald und auf Gras, die Schuhe sind schön leicht und es fühlt sich "natürlich" an damit zu laufen. Ich habe normal breite Füße und kann nicht sagen das die Schuhe drücken / zu flach sind. Einzig gegen Ende des Laufens habe ich an der Innenseite des großen Zeh´s leichte Reibestellen festgestellt, was aber auch an den verwendeten Socken ( billigsocken von H&M, nicht das mit was man normalerweiße läuft...) liegen kann. Die Dauerhaltbarkeit muss sich freilich noch unter Beweiß stellen, wenn diese passt ein Top Schuh für den es sich auch lohnt das Geld aus zu geben.

    Good grip
    Lightweight
    Breathable
