The X Talon 212 is not only awesome looking, but performs excellently whether it is off road, training or obstacle course racing. It is flexible and lightweight with a grip that suits soft terrain and dry trails too. It has 8mm sticky rubber studs that bite and hold, delivering all round grip. This shoe has a 6mm heel to the drop and an injected EVA mid sole which gives underfoot comfort and flexibility which compliments the foot's natural movement. With DWR coating to repel water, a wrap around rand to protect you from rocks and stones and anti microbial treatment inside to restrict the build up of bacteria and unpleasant odour, you are onto a winner here!
