This starts in the heel with added flex grooves that isolate the initial impact to force a softer, smoother feeling at foot strike. At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. To help this natural motion, Asics incorporate DUOMAX technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate).
The midsole also integrates a gender-specific SPACE TRUSSTIC technology, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to help promote a smoother transition from foot strike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves for a smoother roll through toe-off, allowing the shoe to move exceptionally well with the foot. Lastly, a large section of reflective materials in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions.
The GEL-KAYANO 27 model an excellent choice for both competitive and non-competitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support. Engineered jacquard mesh upper DUOMAX technology SPACE TRUSSTIC technology GEL technology in the front and rear sole FLYTEFOAM Propel technology in the midsole.
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
ASICS energetic foam formulation that provides supreme bounce thanks to a unique elastomer compound.
Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibres to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low-density foams.
This evolution of the DuoMax® system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while providing stability and retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
Specifically designed trusstic system to cater to the differences in male and female biomechanics
Contains reflective materials designed to enhance visibility during low light hours.
External heel counter delivering better overall fit and targeted support
Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
Removable sockliner that provides cushioning performance.
