The Inov-8 Road X-Treme 178 trainer is super lightweight and is for athletes with an advanced natural running technique looking for a racing edge.
40g has been stripped out of the 208 to deliver the 178, reducing the sticky rubber pods down to only the main contact areas, removing any non core ingredients and dropping down to a 3mm heel drop.
Based on the shape of the foot, this is our most natural fit. More room in the toe box allows the toes to spread.
Lots of proprioception and a flexible lower profile ride, great stability under weights.
Racing shoes are ultra-lightweight, built on a curved last and stripped of the majority of cushioning and stability features found on most training shoes. Generally, the lighter the shoe, the more minimalist the design. You should choose these if you’re a fast, elite runner concerned predominantly with weight. Unless you’re very light, these aren’t for you if you run a marathon outside 2:45, or 1:30 for a half.
Born in the UK in 2003, inov-8 manufactures specialist sports products in the off-road running and fitness markets. Renowned for designing lightweight footwear boasting the ultimate in grip, inov-8's shoes can be found on the feet of the world's most demanding competitors and adventurous athletes.
