New inov-8 G-Series Shoes Offer Grip and Durability Without Compromise

New inov-8 G-Series Shoes Offer Grip and Durability Without Compromise

Life is full of compromises. You compromise your diet for a decadent cupcake. You compromise a long gym session for extra time with family. You compromise traction for durability (or vice versa) in your athletic footwear. While we can’t swat the cupcake out of your hand or solve your work-life balance challenges, we can offer a solution to your shoe conundrum.

Introducing the inov-8 G-Series: the world’s first-ever line of training and running shoes to feature graphene-enhanced rubber outsoles for superior traction and longevity.

As the world’s strongest and thinnest material, graphene is often used in tennis racquets, squash racquets, golf balls, and skis. Graphene is produced using a specific type of graphite, it’s 200 times stronger than steel, and the scientists who first isolated it were awarded the Nobel Prize for physics. Yes, you read that right: You can rock shoes that feature Nobel Prize-winning technology!

inov-8 collaborated with The National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester to create graphene-infused rubber outsoles that are 50 percent stronger, 50 percent more elastic, and 50 percent more durable than industry standards.

Ready for footwear as tough as you are? Join the graphene shoe revolution!  

Currently, the G-Series comprises three unisex shoes, each designed for a different environment. They feature EXTEROFLOW midsoles, which absorb, store, and release energy to help push you through the movement cycle. The G-Series shoes also have lightweight Kevlar uppers for durability and breathability.

F-Lite G 290

The F-Lite G 290 brings the gripping power of graphene-enhanced rubber soles indoors with a shoe that’s perfect for strength training, CrossFit, or any other physically demanding gym workout. META-FLEX grooves in the outsole offer optimum maneuverability while the POWERHEEL supports lifting activities with material that’s 40 percent denser than the midsole. The F-Lite G 290 has a 4-millimeter drop and weighs in at 10.15 ounces (290 grams).

TerraUltra G 260

The TerraUltra G 260 is primarily for long-distance running on smooth or hard trails. Its graphene-enhanced rubber outsole features multidirectional grooves for ultimate flex as you run. Updated underfoot technology makes the shoe as comfortable as it is responsive, and the shoe was engineered to enable natural foot movement. The TerraUltra G 260 has a zero drop and is quite light at 9.17 ounces (260 grams).

MudClaw G 260

For those looking to go a little farther off the beaten path, the MudClaw G 260 is the way to go. Boasting 8-millimeter cleats in addition to the extreme grip of the graphene-infused rubber outsole, this shoe is perfect for soft, muddy, or mountainous terrain. The MudClaw G 260 has a 4-millimeter drop, weighs just 9.17 ounces (260 grams), and is perfect for mud runs and obstacle courses.

Saucony Fall 2017 Running, Trail and Racing Shoes Preview

Saucony Fall 2017 Running, Trail and Racing Shoes Preview

For Fall 2017, Saucony updated its TRI-FLEX outsole design for six of its shoes: Ride 10 and Ride 10 GTX, Redeemer ISO2, Zealot ISO3, Echelon 6 and Omni 16.

What does an updated TRI-FLEX mean though?

Well, the TRI-FLEX groove itself increases force dispersion over a greater surface area while also delivering optimal flexibility and traction. Saucony improved the groove of the outsole in the above-mentioned Fall 2017 models, something that has been in place since Spring 2016 actually.

The updates? More ground coverage (thicker) for more protection and durability. "The original TRI-FLEX patterns were a little too thin and seemed to wear down quickly; however, the benefits of the specific design stays the same," says Saucony Shadow Representative Michael Knestout.

The TRI-FLEX pattern is now shaped similar to a triangle. You get more protection and stability with two points at the base of the triangle and when you go to toe off (in a forward motion) the one point of the triangle is more efficient for flexing and a quicker turnover. The TRI-FLEX Groove pattern plays to Saucony's heritage of "Geometry Matters," keeping things in line with one another with shapes and even numbers, such as their 8mm offsets and our 4mm offsets. The old models used more of a butterfly wing design.

Also, TRI-FLEX works with the new Everun cushioning, giving optimal flexibility and cushioning at the same time. The TRI-FLEX is only located in the forefoot in the Road shoes (but is in heel and forefoot in Xodus ISO) to allow the foot to flex and push off evenly. That is why the flex grooves go across the full length of the outsole. Now there are some variations to this from the neutral and stability models. Less connectivity between the TRI-FLEX grooves in the neutral shoes gives the neutral runner more freedom and efficiency in the toe off. In the stability models, the TRI-FLEX grooves are connected more to give more stability and firmness. A stability runner still needs toe flexibility but not as much as a neutral runner.

So now let's see the 6 shoes with the new update!

The Ride 10 and Ride 10 GTX

A Saucony favorite now in its 10th edition now comes in the Endless Summer and Heathered Chroma packs as well as its Reflex Series coming in September.
