Multidirectional flexibility

A Dual-C Sticky rubber makes up the outsole of the Inov-8 F-Train 240. This compound is crafted to provide traction on various surfaces, especially gym floors. The segmented rubber layout allows the shoe to retain its lightweight construction without compromising the grip.

Shock-absorbent platform

The Inov-8 F-Train 240 employs the Fusion midsole. This material is the combination of rubber and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) which delivers a durable platform that supports the foot and reduces shock felt by the feet.

Anti-slippage footbed

Inside the trainer is the Power Footbed insole which enhances the shock attenuation of the midsole. It is created to be firm to support weightlifting activities. It also prevents the feet from sliding inside while working out.

Lycra makes up the quarters and the heel for a secure foothold while the open mesh fabric is found at the forefoot. The mesh material ensures that the foot chamber is properly ventilated during training.

The Inov-8 F-Train 240's overlays

A synthetic overlay creates a toe bumper that protects the toes during burpees and sled pushes. At the back, a leather-like overlay forms an external heel cup that steadies the rearfoot.

Amplified lateral support

Keeping the foot locked securely in place is the Adapterfit cradle on the midfoot. This cage-like structure integrates with the lacing system, so when the laces are cinched, lateral support is amplified. This element also protects the underlying material against abrasion during rope climbs.
