Who should buy the Inov-8 F-Train 240
As part of the Inov-8’s training shoe line, the F-Train 240 is equipped with technologies that help the wearer face grueling workouts head-on. It is a solid choice if:
- You are into HIIT and moderate weightlifting and are looking for a trainer that offers reliable support for those activities.
- Your fitness regimen includes burpees and sled pushes.
- You need a shoe that provides ample toe protection as your day-to-day activities require you to make sudden movements and quick turns.
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.
The outsole also employs the Meta-Flex technology which facilitates multi-directional flexibility. This innovation allows the foot to move naturally forward and laterally.
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.
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.
The Inov-8 F-Train 240 sports a cleatie construction. Lycra and mesh constitute the upper of the trainer.
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.
