FlyteFoam™: FlyteFoam™ midsole is made of foam with added cellulose microfibres. This midsole beats the record for lightness. This material is 55% lighter than classic EVA foam and 33% lighter than Solyte. Organic fibres provide good shape retention.
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.
Propulsion Trusstic™: This technology provides stability during push-off and propulsion when running fast on hard terrain, like when playing volleyball and handball, for smooth, efficient movements.
DUOMAX: Dual-density elements that provides more stability to pronation runners. By providing more effective support, DuoMax also increases propulsion.
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.
