History : Gel Kinsei Series : Kinsei 3('09), Kinsei 2('07), Kinsei('05)


AHAR+ heel : A thinner and lighter version of Asics High Abrasion Resistance rubber. It is placed on the impact area of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.

Biomorphic Fit : Provides enhanced upper fit and comfort while decreasing potential for irritation.

Discrete Heel Unit : Takes the Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) to a new level by creating our highest degree of shock attenuation and stability

Duosole® : A lightweight outsole construction which provide additional flexibility and traction.

DuraSponge® : A new blown rubber compound for enhanced durability and cushioning in the forefoot.

GEL® : Provides maximum rearfoot and forefoot shock attenuation.

Guidance Line™ : Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.

Heel Clutching System : Exoskelatal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.

I.G.S.® : Impact Guidance System : Asics design philosophy that uses linked componentry to encourage optimal gait while allowing for natural foot movement from heel strike to toe-off.

PHF™ : Personal Heel Fit System : Moulds and customises itself to the individual heel shape of the wearer.

Propulsion Trusstic® : Mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage.

Solyte™ : The advantage to injected Solyte® is a much more consistent density, ensuring that the desired softness is more ‘dialed in’ than standard compression molded midsole material. Injected Solyte® is also lighter than standard Solyte® contributing to the overall drop in weight.
