The Carbon X is a serious opponent. This high-performance shoe with brand new HOKA ONE technology features a carbon fibre plate that accelerates your step so that you shoot forward like a rocket. Our Profly X foam is lighter and stronger than ever before. The wide, stable base provides a particularly soft, extremely responsive feel. The light upper construction with embroidery is the finishing touch. Just be careful not to get flashed with the Carbon X.
ProflyProfly is a dual density midsole: It's softer at the heel for a better cushioned landing and harder in the forefoot for a more dynamic footprint and better propulsion. It therefore offers a more comfortable landing with a responsive roll-off behaviour.
Meta-RockerThe meta-rocker geometry works like a wheel by driving the runner forward. The reduced (height) difference between the heel and toe supports a particularly fluid and dynamic running style that ensures an effective rolling cycle.
Special upper construction made of single-layer mesh for more breathability in the forefoot
Reinforced embroideries, which give the metatarsus light support
Non-slip tongue with gusset
Early meta-rocker for a faster running feeling with more forward drive
Carbon fibre board with light, resistant Profly X foam on top and rubberised foam underneath
The curvature of the carbon fibre plate under the outer toes prevents supination and lets you roll smoothly
The wider forefoot plateau offers more support and stability with a comfortable fit
Rubberised foam outsole for light, reactive ground contact
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
