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.
I.G.S. (Impact Guidance System): Technological innovation allows the most natural movement whilst perfectly supporting the foot's anatomy. Strategically placed flex grooves that guide the shoe so the foot trajectory can be closer to its ideal motion.
SoftShell: made from soft laminated materials, all garments that use Softshell technology represent a new generation of products. Softshell technology has various properties that help us face all the weather conditions that nature throws at us. This technology makes the product highly windproof, waterproof, flexible and abrasion-resistant.
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.
Space Trusstic™: Technology to ensure stability, reduced weight and durability. The dynamic nature makes it unique. A small gap between the midsole and Trusstic™ technology helps the insole to compress more gently onto the firmer arch support. This can reduce discomfort that some runners feel when transitioning to a firmer arch support.
Guidance Line™: Technology that optimises natural foot movements It improves the efficiency of your stride by optimally guiding the natural movement of the foot, from ground contact to propulsion.
DYNAMIC DUOMAX: A comfortable dual-density support element that is more adaptable than the original DuoMax thanks to a SpEVA® cradle. It stabilises pronation runners at the midfoot and creates a more fluid transition from heel to forefoot. Different versions are available for personalised support.
AHAR+™: An acronym for Asics High Abrasion Rubber, this material is placed in key areas on the sole for exceptional solidity.
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.
