THE NEW RACEULTRA 290 JOINS INOV-8’S OFF-ROAD FOOTWEAR LINE THIS JUNE
Eat the hard miles for breakfast with inov-8's newest off-road addition to footwear, the RACE ULTRA™ 290. The latest piece in the RACE ULTRA™ series allows off-road athletes to have a head-to-toe package for hitting the trail, or going off it.
The award winning RACE ULTRA™ series also includes a set of packs, the RACE ULTRA™ vest and the state of the art waste pack that launched in 2013, accessories like the .25ml compressing bottle, arm sleeve and calf guard, and new RACE ULTRA™ short for men and women.
inov-8's relentless drive for innovation landed the company THREE product awards at the world’s leading international sports business trade show, ISPO, back in January of this year.
The RACE ULTRA™ Vest was voted best in the performance equipment category by a panel of expert judges and named a 2014/2015 ISPO AWARD GOLD WINNER.
The RACE ULTRA™ 290 was also named a 2014/2015 ISPO AWARD WINNER in the performance footwear category.
inov-8 founder Wayne Edy said: “As a brand, we stand out as a true innovator in the market place and these three awards prove that.
The new footwear line includes two colors for both men and women at inov-8’s two arrow drop and comes in at only 10oz.
Unique outsole components
The flatter outsole ensures a stable ride when athlete fatigue sets in, while the unique lug pattern of the outsole utilizes purposeful positioning to assist the ultra athlete – with lugs for climbing at the forefoot and reverse lugs for descending elsewhere. The injected EVA compound allows the shoe to remain lightweight, durable and flexible.
Cushion for aggressive decent and longer miles
Not only does the lug pattern assist on the downhill, but the enhanced cushioning provides optimal comfort for the long distance athlete without sacrificing proprioception.
The upper construction features a rand wrapping entirely around the shoe for enhanced protection during long runs off trail. Additionally, the upper features two clip areas for use with a newly designed debris gaiter (which can be alternatively used with other inov-8 products) easily attaches for added protection.
The new RACE ULTRA™ shoe and entire RACE ULTRA™ line of clothing and accessories will be available this June in the US and to follow in July for the rest of the world.
