This one is for race day. The Carbon X features the maximum cushioning appropriate for a racing shoe. This cushioning sits on top of a carbon fibre plate that provides extra propulsion for every stride. Beneath the carbon plate, the remaining midsole has been rubberised making it more responsive and durable, avoiding the need for an outsole. The upper is as refined and sheer as possible in the name of saving as much weight as possible.
Race days. Marathons. Setting PBs.
What we like
Shoe as refined as possible without compromising on Hoka's iconic cushioning.
The carbon plate and rocker sole work perfectly in tandem to enhance the runner's performance.
