Great grips on varied surfaces with the Hoka Evo Speedgoat outsole
The outsole of the shoe incorporates Vibram® Megagrip high-traction with 5mm lugs. This technology sports aggressive lugs that give the shoe a good grip and traction on varied surfaces. This also increases the durability and stability of the shoe. This technology is also found in Hoka Speedgoat 3.
The shoe also employs outsole flex grooves which are also found in ASICS Gel Contend 4 that allow unrestrained movements while providing more stability on trails.
Absorb impacts with the Hoka Evo Speedgoat midsole
The midsole of the Evo Speedgoat is composed of CMEVA foam that runs the full length of the shoe. This technology is composed of compressed EVA which is then filled inside a mold. This technology absorbs impact points and offers stability.
Enhanced durability and protection with the Hoka Evo Speedgoat upper
The Upper of the Evo Speedgoat is made out of MATRYX® fabric that uses strategically placed Kevlar and utilizes high-tensile synthetic fiber strands that make the shoe more durable and have an exceptional foothold, and protection- all at minimal weight. This upper is also water repellant.
Lycra Strip is also found on the upper of the Evo Speedgoat which allows flexibility. This feature of the shoe also contributes to the shoe’s fit and security when running.
