A new member to the Inov8 X-Talon family. The 230 has the responsiveness I have been desiring since the old 212. Used to describe the whole Inov8 range, Grippy is certainly an understatement for this shoe. Inspiring confidence and speed on a greasy wet pavement, I can’t wait to take to the fells and race in a pair.
A different fit to the current 212 but it holds the foot well. I like the drive and confidence that the shoe gives you to run hard. They are available at Accelerate, follow the link for Mens and Womens.
