Abzorb® : For pure cushioning in the heel and forefoot, Abzorb® is the solution. By absorbing shock and displacing energy, Abzorb® softens the impact, foot-strike after foot-strike.

Abzorb® DTS : Dynamic Transition System in the heel combines ABZORB® foam and ABZORB® SBS to provide optimal cushioning and a smooth transition on heel strike.

Abzorb FL® : Full-length Abzorb midsole material with excellent cushioning and energy displacement properties.

Abzorb SBS® : For pure cushioning Abzorb SBS® is the solution. An evolution of the original Abzorb®, Abzorb SBS® has a cored design that 'absorbs' shock and displaces energy at key impact points on the strike zone. Its unique material is highly durable and formulated to counterbalance the rigorous impact of performance running.

ACTEVA® : Greater consistency in cell size/lower density of cellular foam structure increases resistance to compression set.

Dual Density Collar : Uses both a softer density foam against the foot for cushioning, and a firmer density foam for support.

Extended Web® : Delivers midfoot support and increased stability by extending TPU on the medial post to cradle the foot.

N-durance® : Outsole : Provides long-wearing durability.

N-Lock® : External support system ensures shoe is pulled snugly around your midfoot.

Phantom Liner™ : Lining : Reduces abrasion and discomfort.

Stability Web® : Delivers midfoot support and reduces the weight of the shoe.

Stabilicore : Made from an injection molded thermoplastic that offers a great deal of precision, consistency, and exceptional pronation control. Unlike foam posting systems, it provides a continuous range of stiffness for a smooth transition from heel strike to toe-off. Stabilicore will replaced TS2 Medial Posting technology.

Sure Lace™ : Secure shoe laces provide added midfoot support and keep the shoe snug around the foot.
