Product Description

The original just got better. The new Sticky Grip rubber outsole provides better traction than its predecessor, while improved underfoot protection ensures more comfort and stability. Discover a new level of confidence and the ability to run faster than you ever thought possible over all soft and extreme terrain. This update of a classic offers more comfort with the Powerflow+ midsole which delivers increased shock absorption and energy return when compared to standard midsoles. The precision fit men's X-Talon 230 is perfect for fell, mountain, trail and cross-country running as well as obstacle course racing.

Phenomenal Grip
New industry-leading Sticky Grip rubber delivers better traction than its predecessor over both wet and dry underfoot conditions. Iconic 8mm studs not only claw through soft terrain but also hold firm on harder ground.

Increased Protection
Second-generation Meta-Plate is a rock plate that protects the underfoot from sharp rocks,

More Comfort
Unique Powerflow+ midsole technology delivers 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard midsoles.

Go Light and Fast
The upper materials, protective rand and gusseted tongue are all non-water-absorbing, meaning the shoe remains at its lightweight best.

Special Features


​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.

OCR - direct hit
OCR - Volltreffer
Translated from German To the original

I bought the shoe for OCR runs and I have to say it is a very good choice. Fits very well, has enough grip on every surface and does it all. The reinforcements in the forefoot area are very good at runs in the water.

Ich habe mir den Schuh für OCR - Läufe gekauft und muss sagen, eine sehr gute Wahl. Passt sehr gut, hat auf jedem Untergrund genügend Grip und macht alles mit. Die Verstärkungen im Vorderfußbreich sind sehr gut bei Läufen im Wasser.

A good shoe for terrain racing.
En god sko til terrænløb.
Translated from Danish To the original

Shoes for use in rough terrain. Have a good bite / grip ability. They are stuck. The size has chosen a number bigger. It works fine.

Sko til brug i råt terræn. Har en god bide/gribe evne. De står fast. Størrelsen har valgt et nummer større. Det virker fint.
