First Look: Inov-8 Tri-X-Treme 225 running shoes

Unisex running shoes with tri-specific features and a 'full-length drainage system'

Inov-8 Tri-X-Treme running shoes

Already established in the road- and trail-running markets, Inov-8 are making their first foray into the world of tri-specific gear with a unique range of three new shoes.


Costing £120 from, the Tri-X-Treme 225 is the unisex model and aims to help athletes achieve both a faster transition and run time.

Despite being the lightest shoe in the range (at 225g) with just a 4mm drop, it’s still packed with features, including a larger shoe opening, quick-fastening lace system and smooth kind-to-barefeet inner – as well as a full-length drainage system that aims to keep your feet dry. Look out for a full test soon…
