Dynamic Fascia Band™ (DFB): replicates the anatomical position of the plantar fascia ligament and duplicates the function of the human's foot ability to use the "windlass effect". The inov-8 fascia band™ also replicates the benefits of the windlass effect of the human plantar structure. Originating at the front of the heel's outsole the fascia band extends forward along the outsole and divides, just as the human fascia divides, into 5 bands that terminate anterior to the metatarsal heads. As body weight moves forward onto the metatarsal heads and the toes begin to extend, tension on the inov-8 fascia band™ increases. When the heel leaves the ground, the inov-8 fascia band™ resists elongation of the medial arch and carries the entire body weight of the runner converting the shoe into a rigid propulsion lever.

Tri-C™ Sticky Rubber: Using three sticky rubber compounds increases grip and durability. The hardest, most durable rubber is on the heel, with a soft rubber up the centre for increased traction and a medium rubber on the edges for grip and security with every foot strike.
