    Movement Skis: An Overview for 2019

    Initial Review: Inov-8 TrailTalon 250

    Hey guys!

    So we thought we would start doing some gear reviews of the products we have a change to test when we get out. Our goal with those is to provide you with an honest and realistic opinion of the products we carry here at the store. We carefully curate everything that ends up on our shelves, so there won't be many bad review, but no product is perfect.

    So anyway, here you go, this is our first review, and we are talking about the Inov-8 TrailTalon 250, a minimalist 4mm trail racing shoe :)
