Inov8 X-talon 255 is a lightweight and agile fell running shoe designed for the muddiest of trails,  x-country runs, wet and rocky trails as well as swimrun and obstacle races. It features a phenomenal 8mm lugged sticky rubber grip to offer you ultimate traction and a hard wearing upper for durability.


The upper on X-talon 255 is constructed from highly durable ballistic nylon with TPU overlays, along with the rubber printed rand over the forefoot, this offers you ultimate protection and durability. In addition it is lightweight and it doesn't absorb water, water will drain quikly from the shoe to keep your feet light on extreme muddy terrains.

The fit is on the wider side. The TPU Apadter Cradle restricts the iternal movement of your foot and locks your foot down so you can react fast and with flexibility over uneven terrain.  

A two-part gusseted tongue moulds to the top of your foot and distributes the pressure evenly, it also protects your foot against debris and dirt.        

The phenomenal 8mm sticky rubber grip takes you through the muddiest off road courses with ease. It also holds firmly on wet rock and slippery obstacles.

The Rope-Tec rubber technology on the outsole reduces burning when you climb a rope on an obstacle course.
