Ultimate Hike/MTB/RD Shoes: Inov8 ROCLITE G 370

By |August 30th, 2019|

At 370 grams (13 oz) the ROCLITE G 370 isn't much heavier than some stability running shoes I've run in over the years, and they are significantly lighter than a few pair of hoops hi-tops I have in my closet.

Aside from the "woah, check out that shirt" I've heard at the gym or on a run, ViewSPORT tops are already at the top of my list for a great workout shirt.
