Technology: Gel Cushioning, Flytefoam, AHAR Rubber, Trusstic
ASICS technologies focus on the midsole with several different combinations of Gel, Foam and Trusstic depending on biomechanics of the user.
- Gel Cushioning: ASICS GEL™ impacts both the rearfoot and forefoot by strategically placing gel where it does the best. Rearfoot GEL™ reduces impact during heel strike and allows for a smooth transition while forefoot GEL™ enhances shock reduction during forward movement. Asics Gel is made of soft elastomer kept in a solid construction for stability and durability.
- Flytefoam: Unlike many shoe companies that infuse their foam with air to make them lighter, ASICS uses kevlar fibers in Flytefoam™. With a lighter, more reactive shoe, running becomes easier on your body, allowing you to move faster, for greater distances. It's impact protection for your body without the weight.
- Trusstic: The TRUSSTIC™ technology supports stable movements by reinforcing the middle part of the sole and preventing the shoe from twisting.
- AHAR: AHAR™ and AHARPLUS™ are outer sole materials with excellent abrasion resistance and come in sponge type with good cushioning. They improve the durability of shoes while maintaining necessary functions including grip. AHAR = Asics High Abrasion Rubber.
