Fresh out of Outdoor Retailer 2012 is a sneak peak of Inov-8’s upcoming road running category. The Road – Xtreme line bridges the gap between the Road-X line (traditional raised heel and high wearing outsole) and the barefoot/minimalist Bare-X line. The Road – Xtreme models will be built with men’s and women’s specific models, unlike other styles in the Inov-8 line. These road specific shoes will be much lighter as they use a road grade Fusion EVA and sticky rubber pods in strategic high wear areas. Styles will vary in heel-toe differential throughout the three styles. Seen on the far right, the zero – drop version of the Road – Xtreme is now the lightest road shoe in the Inov-8 line, with the Men’s weighing 4.9 oz and the women’s version at 4.2 oz. A great addition for road runners and Crossfit enthusiasts, look for the Inov-8 Road – Xtreme line in Spring 2013.
