Our Review of the Inov-8 Mudclaw G 260:
The long wait is over and the eagerly anticipated Inov-8 Mudclaw with a Graphene infused sole has finally arrived! The Mudclaw is a long-standing favourite with runners looking for maximal grip in the wettest, muddiest and most technical terrain. With the addition of Graphene to the already immensely grippy rubber outsole have developed an off-road shoe that will last for miles and miles without any lose of traction from the 8mm studs.
As well as the obvious increased durability and grip from the outsole, Inov-8 have also increased the durability of the upper to match with the inclusion of Kevlar and a super durable mesh upper. All this in a shoe that weighs only 260g! So light you’ll hardly know your wearing it, yet it will provide you with all the confidence you need to really attack any off-road conditions.
With a low, 4mm heel to toe drop the Mudclaw 260 is designed to give you a close connection with the terrain, but the flexible Exteroflow midsole enhances there is impact protection when you need it and propulsion into the next stride for energy efficient running.
The feedback we have had on the Inov-8 Graphene outsoles so far has been very good and we are sure that the Mudclaw will be no different. The shoe comes with its own specially designed gaiters to add extra protection from mud, gravel and grit. We are sure the Mudclaw G 260 is going to become a favourite with fell, trail and mountain runners worldwide.
