The X-Talon 230 is ideal for running on soft, muddy terrain as well as harder ground. Suitable for fell, trail, cross-country and mountain running, the X-Talon 230 is grippier and more protective than X-Talons that have come before. Its new sticky grip outsole offers better traction particularly in the forefoot and its Powerflow + midsole provides better underfoot protection, greater shock absorption and more energy return.


Non-water absorbing materials in the upper combine with a protective rand and a gusseted tongue to keep the shoe at its lightweight best as you tackle the terrain. On-the-shoe gaiter hooks allow you to attach an All Terrain Gaiter to the shoe securely if you need to.

Sticky Grip outsole rubber gives up to 50% better traction in the forefoot than its predecessor in both wet and dry underfoot conditions. 8mm lugs claw through wet mud but also hold firm on harder ground. A second generation Meta-Plate gives protection from sharp rocks and Powerflow + midsole technology delivers 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than industry standard midsoles.

Stack Heights (midsole only): 13: 7mm (6mm drop)

Weight: 230g
