AHAR+ : Asics High Abrasion Resistance : Located at the impact area of the out-sole to reduce excessive wear.

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

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

Dual Density Solyte® Last : Lasting material made from 2 different Solyte densities placed in the heel and forefoot for improved comfort.

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

Guidance Line™ : A vertical flex groove component of IGS and is primarily articulated in the forefoot to improve gait efficiency.

IGS® : Impact Guidance System : ASICS® design philosophy that uses linked component to encourage optimal gait while allowing for natural foot movement from heel strike to toe-off.

Performance Trail Upper : Shoe upper is water resistant and offers protection from the elements while maintaining breathability to keep the foot cool.

PHF™ : Personal Heel Fit System : Molds and customizes 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.

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.

Trail Specific Outsole : Reversed placed lugs outsole providing traction for uphill and downhill traction on all types of terrain.
