Inov8 Road Claw 275 Women's Running Shoes - AW16
The ROAD CLAW delivers an ultra-smooth ride with inov-8's iconic grip. No matter how rugged the road, the ROAD CLAW is master if it's terrain. They will provide you with a high level of comfort, protection and grip.
The Inov8 Road Claw 275 upper of the shoe has undergone design tweaks to help improve responsiveness and flexibility for maximum comfort and now features a Synthetic Mesh that covers the upper for a lightweight and breathable coverage. The mesh allows air to ventilate throughout the shoe, keeping the foot feeling cool and refreshed.
The Inov8 Road Claw utilises the MET-Cradle design which secures the midfoot hold that allows you to move naturally which is achieved by a welded lightweight film. It provides you with greater stability and control.
The Inov8 offers a standard fit which provides a close-fitting heel that locks the shoe in position, while a wider toe box allows the toes to splay when running naturally or lifting weights. Standard fit suits those with wider feet and athletes using the product for long sessions.
Run effortlessly over any terrain, even the most rugged, with the unique POWERFLOW midsole technology. POWERFLOW delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsoles. The reliable underfoot absorption gives for greater comfort over miles by reducing forces pressed upon the underfoot platform for a clean strike through transition. 2 arrow Shoc-Zone provides moderate underfoot cushioning and a 8mm heel-to-toe drop.
The patented Dynamic Fascia Band (DFB) mimics the 'Windlass Effect' delivering a kick of energy with each step, helping you to move faster and more efficiently. The Inov-8's patented dynamic fascia band technology replicates the anatomical position of the plantar fascia ligament and duplicates the function of the human foot's ability to utilise the 'windless effect'. Originating at the front of the heel's outsole, it extends forward along the outsole and divides into 5 bands that terminate anterior to the metatarsal heads. As body weight moves forward onto the metatarsal heads and the toes begin to extend, tension on the inov-8 fascia band increases. When the heel leaves the ground, the inov-8 fascia band resists elongation of the medial arch and carries the entire body weight of the runner converting the shoe into a rigid propulsive lever.
The iconic inov-8 outsole grip is optimised for road running and will generate maximum power control. Every ounce of energy generated by the body is transferred to the road through the outsole, with TRI-C outsole delivering traction throughout the gait cycle. The sticky fusion compound is a mix of synthetic rubber and EVA foam for a smooth ride and grip on the road while the Meta-Flex is located at the forefoot to encourage natural forefoot flex during toe-off. At the rear a Terradapter heel unit provides added protection and durability at heel strike. For ultimate security, the ROAD CLAW is 100% sure-footed on any road. It provides grip and stability which is delivered through a patent pending claw-cleat lug design.
