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.

Asymmetrical Lacing Design : This set-up inimprove the ASICS Biomorphic Fit by creating a more anatomically correct lacing pattern. The asymmetrical lacing design is configured to wrap across the top of the vamp, creating a more open forefoot environment.

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

Gel® : 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.

Clutch Collar System : An Ex-oskelatal collar compliments the exoskeletal TPU heel counter for a uniquely secure fit, with plush memory foam on both sides to minimizes heel slippage and a better secure fit.

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

Dual Density Solyte® : Shoe Last : Employs different densities of Solyte® lasting material in heel and forefoot for improved comfort.

DuoMax® : Medial Post : Ensures that the shoe maintains proper support for the foot during the critical transition from heel strike to toe-off.

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

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

Propulsion Trusstic : A thermal plastic unit over the Space Trusstic System to mimics
connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage, it helps to accelerate propulsion of the foot.

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.

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.

Wet Grip® : Outsole : A specialized blend of compounds designed to enhance traction.
