The all-new HOKA ONE ONE Carbon X 2 is hands down the best model the brand has cooked up to date. Furthermore, the new silhouette is arguably at the top of the charts when comparing it to other carbon plate-infused performance models.
The Carbon X 2 carries key elements from both its predecessor and the Clifton Edge. The shoe features an updated upper with ventilated areas and extra heel support for a secure yet lightweight experience. The tongue is coated in a reflective material to ensure that you’re visible even at top speed during the night.
The money is in the midsole for the Carbon X 2 thanks to its carbon-plate infused design. The plate allows a smooth transition during the gait cycle for a natural and effective run. The shoe also features the brand’s PROFLY midsole for a part-cushion, part spring-like propulsion with each step. To top it all off, a rubberized EVA outsole adds response cushioning without adding much weight.
With the running world getting more competitive with sneakers (and carbon fiber plates), the HOKA ONE ONE Carbon X 2 is all business. Coming in at just 8.40 oz., the shoe is fully engineered for training and intense races.
Take a detailed look at the pair below. You can shop the Carbon X 2 now on HOKA ONE ONE and select retailers. Keep it locked on Nice Kicks and more performance reviews down the road.
