The lightest and fastest shoe in the ROCLITE range boasts a highly durable mesh upper for protection and comfort as well as graphene grip (G-Grip) for the ultimate in traction over multiple terrains.
Graphene Grip Collaborating with graphene experts at The University of Manchester, inov-8 has been able to infuse the wonder-material into rubber.
200 times stronger than steel and super-lightweight, graphene is also the thinnest material on earth. Graphene is extraordinarily flexible, and can be bent and twisted, folded and stretched without any damage.
This graphene-enhanced rubber can flex and grip to all surfaces more effectively, without wearing down quickly. This provides reliably strong, long-lasting grip. The graphene enhanced outsole rubbers are scientifically tested to be 50% stronger, 50% more elastic and 50% harder wearing.

The neutral shoe or cushioning shoe is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). It is therefore particularly suitable for runners who have a regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not bend inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used in competitions, fast training or long endurance sessions. The cushioning can vary depending on the intended use. In order to achieve a more direct ground contact in competition, it is advisable to use a slightly damped shoe. In training on hard surfaces or with long units, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
