FIRST WE PIONEERED GRAPHENE-ENHANCED GRIP.
THEN WE LAUNCHED GRAPHENE-ENHANCED FOAM.
WORLD FIRST TECHNOLOGIES LEADING THE WAY.
Developed by scientists at The University of Manchester, Graphene-enhanced G-FLY foam landed in 2021, revolutionising running, hiking and fitness shoes.
Just like Graphene-enhanced G-GRIP rubber, launched three years earlier, the foam delivers incredible levels of performance that last for longer.
Be prepared to experience supercharged feet and the world’s toughest grip.
Graphene is the strongest – yet thinnest – material on the planet. It’s an almost invisible single layer of graphite that possess superpowers unlike anything scientists have discovered before.
Graphene is 200 times tougher than steel but boasts astonishing flexibility. Those who discovered it were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010. Graphene has the potential to revolutionise all industries.
Graphite is first mined in the Lake District fells of Northern England, close to where inov-8 was born.
Scientists at The University of Manchester isolate Graphene from Graphite.
The Nobel Prize for Physics is awarded to scientists Andre Geim & Konstantin Novoselov for their ground-breaking discovery.
inov-8 launch the first-ever sports footwear to utilise Graphene rubber, delivering the world’s toughest grip for off-road runners, hikers and fitness athletes.
In collaboration with The University of Manchester, inov-8 launch the world’s first Graphene-enhanced foam for trail and ultramarathon runners.
