INTRODUCTION

The Roclite 243 men's shoe is a minimum feature, moderate neutral trail shoe designed for racing, daily training and high mileage. It is built with a semi-curved shape.

CUSHIONING

  • 1 Arrow Shoc-Zone provides minimal underfoot cushioning and a 3mm heel-to-toe drop. This is Inov8's 2nd lowest level of cushioning on their 0-4 arrow scale.

MIDSOLE

  • Injected EVA Foam for resilient cushioning with maximum memory retention.
  • Fascia Band running from the heel to the forefoot acts as a rigid lever arm, releasing energy with each step and propelling the runner forward.
  • Meta-Shank extends from the midfoot to the forefoot in a 5-finger fashion, for flexible underfoot impact protection.

UPPER

  • Synthetic Mesh covers the upper for lightweight, breathable coverage.
  • TPU Lacing System uses TPU lacing supports for a strong, lightweight and secure fit.
  • 6mm Footbed for additional underfoot comfort.

OUTSOLE

  • Roclite is a trail outsole built with a moderately aggressive lug pattern. It is intended for use on hard packed trails and mixed terrain.
  • Sticky Rubber for optimal performance and maximized grip in wet conditions.
  • Meta-Flex groove is located at the forefoot to encourage natural forefoot flex during toe-off.

LAST

  • Performance Last is a close fitting design for a snug fit and optimal performance.

Comments: excellent semi-minimal trail shoe. Doesnt really excell in durability but its on the average. Just BEWARE its exactly what the name implies...roclite (=for light-small rocks only). Anything above 1-2inch diameters can cause pain, instability and lack of pleasure. Why not buy it for whats really worth it?

Comments: I really enjoyed the nimbleness and flexibility of this shoe. Feeling fast, stable and protected without sacrificing proprioception.
