Inspired by ultra-runner Karl Meltzer, Hoka's Speedgoat trail runner was designed with the challenging conditions of Meltzer's Speedgoat 50K race in mind.

Part of Hoka’s MTN Run line, the Speedgoat is designed for the most technical mountain trails, while weighing in at 8.6 ounces per shoe.

For confidence-inspiring traction and stability on the trail, the Speedgoat features a Vibram sole with four-millimeter lugs and flex grooves. The no-sew upper supports the foot and a toecap offers protection on rocky trails.

The Speedgoat replaces Hoka’s Rapa Nui trail runner.

Best for: Trail runners who want to go far and fast on the most challenging of mountain trails


The Speedgoat replaced the Hoka Rapa Nui 2 Trail as of 2015.


Weight 8.6 oz
