Always looking to push the limits of running with its products, HOKA ONE ONE developed its new Carbon X model to the beat the 100K world record.

Part of the performance wear brand’s ambitious Project Carbon X initiative, the shoe was created to take on both World and American 100K running records. Aside from bringing together HOKA’s signature max-cushioning Metarocker sole and minimal-weight construction, the shoe is outfitted with an innovative carbon fiber plate which allows for resupination under the ball of the foot.

The shoe is constructed of a lightweight and breathable single-layered mesh which is assisted by a Lycra tongue gusset that prevents tongue migration for enhanced stability. While the performance designed model is supported by a patent-pending carbon plate sandwiched by PROFLY X and CM Betty Fly Foam cover and flared injected rubberized EVA.

HOKA athletes Jim Walmsley, Patrick Reagan, Tyler Andrews, Mike Wardian, Hideaki Yamauchi, Yoshiki Takada, Sabrina Little and Aiko Kanematsu will be wearing the Carbon X during the 100K race in Folsom, California May 4 to try and beat the men’s (6:09:14) and women’s records (6:33:11).

Priced at $180 USD, HOKA ONE ONE’s Carbon X is set to release May 15 on hokaoneone.eu, with a wider release at select retailers coming June 1.

In case you missed it, INVINCIBLE and adidas drew from the colors of heat vision for its Yung-1 collaboration.
