Featuring a graphene-enhanced rubber outsole, the TRAILROC 280 delivers the world’s toughest grip over hard and rocky terrain.
With increased protection both underfoot and around the toes, as well as added comfort and cushioning, this shoe offers the ultimate package for those running all distances over technical hard-packed trails.
Graphene Grip Collaborating with graphene experts at The University of Manchester, inov-8 has been able to infuse the wonder-material into rubber.
200 times stronger than steel and super-lightweight, graphene is also the thinnest material on earth. Graphene is extraordinarily flexible, and can be bent and twisted, folded and stretched without any damage.
This graphene-enhanced rubber can flex and grip to all surfaces more effectively, without wearing down quickly. This provides reliably strong, long-lasting grip. The graphene enhanced outsole rubbers are scientifically tested to be 50% stronger, 50% more elastic and 50% harder wearing.
GRAPHENE GRIP: Revolutionary graphene-enhanced G-GRIP outsole delivers insane sticky grip AND increased durability – all in one rubber. The world’s toughest grip. No compromise.

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.
