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.

ComforDry Sockliner : Made from an anti-bacterial material that not only reduces odor and moisture but also provides additional cushioning.

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

Gel®Forefoot n Heel : Provides maximum rearfoot and forefoot shock attenuation.

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.

Solyte™, Midsole : 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.

Solyte™ 45 last : Located on the full length of the shoe and has a low density to deliver the softest feel under the foot.

Space Trusstic System™ : The system works with the complex functions of the foot to facilitate Windlass Mechanics. Space Trusstic is new I.G.S. componentry and an evolution, if not revolution of our benchmark trusstic technology. The Space Trusstic system is not integrated within the EVA. Rather it is suspended below the midsole EVA forming a distinct pocket or space into which the EVA of the mid foot section of the shoe can distort. The result is that torsion stability of the shoe is maintained but pressure on the plantar facia is released enabling tension with the transition from foot flat to propulsion. This is designed to facilitate the all-important Windlass Mechanism. Space Trusstic is a natural extension of I.G.S. and an enhancement of Windlass Mechanics.
