ORTHOLITE®: Engineered from open cell polyurethane, Ortholite soles retain 95% of their cushioning after one year of use, whereas ordinary soles lose 70% of their cushioning over the same time period.
The Ortholite® sole is light and breathable. The air circulates, to help evacuate heat and moisture to keep the feet dry. The environmentally-friendly biocide treatment is antimicrobial and creates a healthier environment for the feet. The advantages of Ortholite® Open-Cell Technology are:
ORTHOLITE® LASTING: Durable OrthoLite to ensure the shoe adapts to various foot anatomies and provide sensitive cushioning for a more comfortable run.
FlyteFoam™ Propel: The FlyteFoam™ Propel midsole is made from an elastomer with great energy return. The patented formula offers excellent rebound and propulsion.
Gel™ Technology: Iconic shock absorption technology used by Asics since 1986. The Gel™ cushioning helps protect shocks from impact to reduce muscle fatigue. Made of wear-resistant silicone, the Gel™ pads are placed under the heel, under the big toe joint and under the toes. These are areas where the vertical load is higher on impact and push-off.
GuideSole™: The GuideSole™ design controls ankle flexing so the runner's muscles work less. The reduced energy expenditure helps you run faster and more easily.
Guidance Trusstic™: Anti-torsion element for increased stability The technology promotes stability as you move by strengthening the outer part of the midsole at the midfoot to prevent the show from twisting. Midsole reinforcement to prevent distortion Composition: Pebax, HardEVA, BioTPU and injected TPU.
AHAR™: An acronym for Asics High Abrasion Rubber, this material is placed in key areas on the sole for exceptional solidity.
EVA: The moulded EVA foam insert is particularly flexible. It helps improve shock absorption and lightness.
Engineered Mesh: This dual-layer material combines an external layer with alternating open and closed zones to improve ventilation and and elastane layer for a perfect fit.
