Inov-8 Race Ultra 270

The new light racing version of the race ultra, the Race Ultra 270 brings athletes closer to the terrain with its reduced 4-mm drop. Offering optimal cushioning and comfort for the long-distance athlete racing over trails and mountains while also delivering increased levels of proprioception. A flatter outsole ensures a stable ride when fatigue sets in. Clip a Race Ultra gaiter onto Inov-8's unique on-the-shoe attachment system to ensure all debris is kept at bay.

Features

  • Compressed EVA midsole
  • Tri-C Race Ultra outsole
  • Tri-C outsole material is made of three zones of rubber: high-abrasion rubber at the heel; soft, sticky rubber outer zone; and a hard, sticky core
  • Soft, sticky rubber at the outer edges allows for greater traction
  • High-abrasion rubber on the heel improves durability and allows for heel striking when fatigued
  • Hard, sticky rubber on the core promotes endurance and delivers rugged grip
  • 5-finger polymer Meta-Shank Generation III aligns with each individual metatarsal for increased benefit from the Windlass Effect while retaining underfoot impact protection and flexibility
  • Meta-Flex groove in the forefoot of the outsole provides a natural flex point in the shoe allowing the forefoot to function naturally with each step
  • X-Static incorporates pure silver in a synthetic fiber providing permanent anti-odor protection
  • X-Static is not a finish or treatment; therefore the silver will not wash out or wear off
  • Antimicrobial treatment ensures bacteria can't build up
  • Perforated 6-mm insole is removable, breathable, fast-wicking and quick-drying
  • Standard-fit last offers a wider toe box that allows toes to splay when running naturally
  • Perfect for forefoot strikers, athletes with a wider foot and when lifting heavy weights
  • Close-fitting heel locks the shoe into position
  • Met-Cradle lacing system anatomically positioned to cradle the midfoot behind the metatarsal heads and provides a secure, adjustable hold while allowing the forefoot to flex as nature intended
  • Secure Met-Cradle fit minimizes internal foot movement when ascending, descending and contouring, enabling a faster run with greater confidence and support
  • Breathable mesh interior lining
  • When used with the Race Ultra gaiter, the shoe gaiter system eliminates the need to use strapped gaiters
  • Race Ultra gaiter not included

  • Type: Trail
  • Manufacturer's Category: Off-Road
  • Pronation Control: Neutral
  • Weight: 9.5 oz
  • Height: 14/10 mm (Heel/Toe)

      I like the feel of these running/racing shoes. They fit very good and feel very stable. So far the soles are showing very little wear.

      Good fit, grip. I judge my shoes on how fast I want to get out of them after a 20 plus long run. These I don't take of and end up wearing most of the day.
