GET TECHNICAL

We're passionate about the technology behind our products and want to ensure you get the most out every mile you run or minute you train. Here's a breakdown of how this product is put together.

Pitch/Arrow

pitch-arrow-2
Years before anyone else, inov-8 pioneered the ‘Arrow System’, reducing differential from heel-to-toe, helping athletes improve their own performance.   Inov-8 products start at 3 Arrows. You can start wherever you like. 3 Arrows gives the biggest heel-to-toe drop in the inov-8 range, about half of that found in overly cushioned, structured shoes. As you drop arrows you tend to drop weight and cushioning, you tend to gain proprioception and speed. Reach Zero for a pure performance shoe – lightweight, stripped-back and fast. Dominate-the-race kind of fast.   Athletes not yet conditioned for natural running choose 3 Arrows. The same goes for those wanting a shoe for long endurance sessions, although we do tailor our products to each terrain. If you’re introducing stripped back shoes into shorter sessions choose 2 or 1 Arrows to ease your progress.

Fit
