AHAR™, Rearfoot : 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.

ComfortDry 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.

Discrete Eyelets : Eyelets are independently placed to disburse lace tension and are designed to enhance comfort.

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

Gel®, Forefoot n Rearfoot : 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.

Open Mesh : An ultra lightweight shoe upper with overlays which provides excellent support and ventilation.

P.H.F. : Personal Heel Fit System : Moulds and customizes itself to the individual heel shape of the wearer.

Solyte™ Midsole : Mid-sole material which is a advanced durable co-polymer that is lighter than standard EVA and Asics SpEVA®.

Solyte® 55 Last : On top of the inner rear portion of the shoe, it has a medium density to deliver a moderately soft 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.
