The new Terraultra G has built on the success of the original 260 version. Still with super durable, graphene-enhanced soles, lightweight materials and now with even more cushioning these shoes are ideal for covering ultra distances.
Evolution of the award-winning TERRAULTRA G 260 with Graphene-Grip. The new POWERFLOW MAX midsole, combined with a 33% increase in stack height, makes the TERRAULTRA G 270 a more cushioned ride with greater energy return and bounce. A new BOOMERANG footbed adds even more spring to the responsive ride, while the upper has been improved with premium materials that boost protection and durability. The TERRAULTRA G 270 with Graphene-Grip retains all the elements that made the original G 260 such a global favourite but, following extensive feedback from top ultra-runners, has been upgraded into the must-have long-distance trail shoe for 2020. It’s time to run forever.
Inov8's Terraultra G 270 has been updated with a greater midsole stack increasing from 9mm to 12mm, improved tread design for greater grip and updated Powerflow Max foam used to foam also provide up to 20% more energy return than its predecessor for a snappier, bouncier feel than the previous model. This shoe is still focused on covering serious miles. There are reinforced sections along the toe bumper and eyelets, with thicker laces and hard wearing material around the heel too. Breathability is still impressive with the mesh fabric upper so even when you've been going for a while this helps, as it does with wet feet too as they are really quick drying.
They have the widest fit on the Inov8 scale which is ideal for longer distances, whether running or walking. Despite the zero drop, which may take some time to get used to, they now have a 12mm stack to provide loads of cushioning for longer outings. The G grip series gives you an massively upgraded sole in terms of additional grip and seriously impressive durability compared to anything else on the market.
