Levitating: By using an EVA 30% softer and increasing its total volume to 2.5 times that of a typical trail running shoe, we allow for more cushioning than any other shoe on the market today, dissipating up to 80% of the shock associated with heal striking when running. Allowing for as much as 20mm of compression in the heel, with a low ramp angle allows for tremendous confidence running downhill, as runners can now engage their gluteus and lower back as opposed to isolating their quads, relaxing the body and making running downhill fun and comfortable.
Rolling Up: 40mm high sole design enabled to design a 13cm rockering profile , representing 50% of the sole length. This design allows for fluid and natural stride transitions, lessening the movement of the knee by as much as 20%, increasing efficiency.
Like a Feather: 15% lighter than reference trail running shoes. At 320 grams size 8UK per pair, they'll make running uphill as much fun as they make running downhill.
Grip: With 50% more surface area than the typical trail running shoe, and 35% more rubber crampons, you've never run as confidently as you will in a pair of Hoka's.
Stability: With a foot recessed into the midsole, you've never run as confidently as you will in a pair of Hoka's.
