A supremely versatile trail running shoe for both hard and soft terrains. Designed to handle everything from dusty tracks to muddy bogs, the ROCLITE G 275 V2 is a versatile must-have for every trail shoe arsenal. The versatility stems from its grip-hungry 6mm long rubber lugs that not only dig into soft ground but also hold firm on hard terrain. These sticky lugs are infused with Graphene – the world’s strongest material – making them 50% harder-wearing. Upgrades to the version 2 (V2) can be found in the midsole and upper. The midsole now features the POWERFLOW MAX foam for greater comfort, cushioning and energy return. Below the foam sits a flexible rock plate for underfoot protection, while above it sits Inov8 super-soft, mega-bouncy BOOMERANG footbed.
The upper has been redesigned to give a better locked-in fit. This is thanks to the new wraparound ADAPTER-FIT cradle system that connects the midfoot to the heel. Operated from the laces, when these are tightened, the cradle tightens too, pulling everything together for a secure fit that also adjusts to the natural movements of the foot. A new tongue further enhances the improved fit and comfort. The mesh material that covers much of the upper is 25% stronger than before and made of a tighter – yet still highly-breathable – weave that gives greater durability and repels more grit.
The average weight of the shoe across the size curve remains 275g. The drop is still 8mm, with the floor-to-foot stack height measurements being 26mm in the heel and 18mm in the forefoot.
