Updates to Inov-8 Roadclaw 240
- The Inov-8 Roadclaw 240 is a road companion that’s crafted for runners who have neutral foot pronation. It has a sporty yet subdued look that accommodates consumers who desire an uncluttered shoe-façade. A breathable mesh ensures a cool and dry in-shoe experience.
- POWERFLOW serves as this running shoe’s midsole unit. It is meant to protect against impact and encourage springy takeoffs. The outsole utilizes a rubber technology that is durable, flexible and long lasting.
Inov-8 Roadclaw 240 size and fit
The Inov-8 Roadclaw 240 has a standard running shoe length. Runners can purchase a pair using their regular sizing preferences. When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively.
The outsole unit of the Inov-8 Roadclaw 240 features the TRI-C, a technology that offers durable protection, traction, and even additional cushioning through a spongy build. This outsole material is also used in the Inov-8 Trailroc 285 and other popular running shoes from Inov-8.
Flex grooves permit foot flexibility. Such a biomechanical action is evident during the toe-off phase of the gait cycle. Having these shallow trenches maximizes the performance.
The POWERFLOW technology is employed in the Inov-8 Roadclaw 240’s midsole unit. This full-length foam is advertised to provide 10% more protection against impact forces, as well as 15% more oomph to the lift.
The Dynamic Fascia Band or DFB™ is a four-pronged belt in the midsole that supports the structure of the underfoot. It mimics the functions of the foot’s tendons, tensing and bending accordingly throughout the gait cycle. Such an inclusion energizes the step while also staving off fatigue or strain.
Mesh serves as the external part of the Inov-8 Roadclaw 240’s upper unit. This textile has an open construction that encourages air in the interior chamber. It is not stiff or movement-restraining; it has a form-fitting design that welcomes the innate outline of the foot.
The ADAPTERWEB is a system of printed overlays and discrete eyelets that connect to a traditional lacing system. This scheme is constructed to support the foot and prevent it from wobbling during the run.
The back section has a stitched-on counter that holds the heel in place and prevents accidental shoe removals.
