Hoka Carbon X Running Shoes
The Hoka Carbon X ensures lightweight comfort and increased performance. The carbon plate increases gait efficiency for a more stable, more enjoyable ride. A foam outsole guarantees soft ground contact and responsive cushioning while optimum breathability is provided by a lightweight mesh upper.
Single Layer Mesh Upper
Constructed using an engineered mesh, the Hoka Carbon X Running Shoe offers a comfortable fit and maximum breathability. The mesh actively and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to leave your feet feeling cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. Additionally, the mesh encourages cool air to circulate, creating a cooler, drier environment for your feet to thrive in. Embroidered reinforcements deliver a secure fit especially in the heel so you can continue with distraction-free strides. Completing the upper is a gusseted tongue which promotes mid-foot lockdown and reduces the risks of loose debris from entering inside the shoe.
Carbon Fibre Midsole
Designed using many midsole densities, the Carbon X ensures cushioning, comfort and most of all propulsion. Profly X which provide a soft, propulsive experience by protecting you during a heel strike and propelling you forward for a firm toe-off. A softer density has been used on the top to increase underfoot comfort and provide the perfect amount of resilience and response. Additionally, a bottom density works to increase energy return and ground contact for you can go further for longer with peace of mind that your footwear can take you anywhere. The bottom layer is also abrasion resistant and works to reduce the risks of wear and tear. Sandwiched between the different densities is a carbon fibre plate which curls under the lateral toes to deliver a smoother transition throughout the gait cycle. The carbon plate minimises energy loss, increases propulsion and deliver an abundance of structural support making running feel effortless and giving you the confidence to reach new PB's. The carbon plate helps to maintain the meta-rocker which lies underfoot and as a result, the two technologies work in tandem to amplify the rocker's benefits. The early-stage Meta-Rocker is applied in the midsole to increase running efficiency. Meta-Rocker midsole geometry is specifically designed with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole to create a unique fulcrum effect, like a rocking chair to encourage a guided gait cycle. This design supports a runner's natural form while promoting an efficient, smooth roll from initial impact to toe off.
Rubberised Foam Outsole
A flexible and durable outsole complete the Carbon X. Rubberised foam is used to enhance responsiveness, increases traction and ensure high rebound cushioning. The foam outsole ensures lightweight responsiveness so you can go further for longer which a shoe you can truly rely on. The durable rubber outsole will keep you in firm control across a wide range of different terrain over a long period of time. Forming a solid bond with the ground, the outsole will anchor you into place, keeping you in a strong and controlled position. The Cabon X's sole also helps to eliminate excess rubber on the outsole which in turn reduces overall weight.
Who Are HOKA One One
Hoka One One is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiasts Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud. Both men have been adventuring for as long as they can remember, and their trail running experiences have taken them across the globe. Both Jean-Luc and Nicolas are committed to the values of freedom and enjoyment and feel that this is part of to the running experience whether running on the trail or in the city. With this in mind they started to look at the variables that affected the performance of different types of runners. They quickly came to an important conclusion; fatigue, impacts and muscle strains were challenges that runners of all stripes had to deal with every day. So Jean-Luc and Nicolas came up with a brilliant idea, why not design a shoe that would help to alleviate these problems - so that freedom and enjoyment could be guaranteed every time you go running! From that idea Hoka One One was born. The word Hoka is derived from the ancient Maori language and roughly translated to "now it is time to fly". That's just how it feels to run in a pair of Hoka One One shoes; with each and every step, your foot flies. Today's runners from around the world are learning about the benefits of Hoka One One, they have been used by marathon winners. 50 miles, 100 miles and even 2000+ miles ultra-runners as well as runners just like you or I, who want to enjoy running, perform at their peak and feel that important sense of freedom whilst maintaining top physical performance and protecting against shocks, jolts and injuries. So put your best foot forward, it's time to fly!
