The original just got better. The new Sticky Grip rubber outsole provides better traction than its predecessor, while improved underfoot protection ensures more comfort and stability. Discover a new level of confidence and the ability to run faster than you ever thought possible over all soft and extreme terrain. This update of a classic offers more comfort with the Powerflow+ midsole which delivers increased shock absorption and energy return when compared to standard midsoles. The precision fit men's X-Talon 230 is perfect for fell, mountain, trail and cross-country running as well as obstacle course racing.
Phenomenal Grip New industry-leading Sticky Grip rubber delivers better traction than its predecessor over both wet and dry underfoot conditions. Iconic 8mm studs not only claw through soft terrain but also hold firm on harder ground.
Increased Protection Second-generation Meta-Plate is a rock plate that protects the underfoot from sharp rocks,
More Comfort Unique Powerflow+ midsole technology delivers 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard midsoles.
Go Light and Fast The upper materials, protective rand and gusseted tongue are all non-water-absorbing, meaning the shoe remains at its lightweight best.

Powerflow+ midsole allows very good cushioning and good energy return to the foot
Upper and tongue do not absorb moisture, so the shoe remains light even in wet conditions

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.
I bought the shoe for OCR runs and I have to say it is a very good choice. Fits very well, has enough grip on every surface and does it all. The reinforcements in the forefoot area are very good at runs in the water.
Ich habe mir den Schuh für OCR - Läufe gekauft und muss sagen, eine sehr gute Wahl. Passt sehr gut, hat auf jedem Untergrund genügend Grip und macht alles mit. Die Verstärkungen im Vorderfußbreich sind sehr gut bei Läufen im Wasser.
