TECHNOLOGY
DEFINITIONS
Use the guide below as a reference tool for your catalogue.
WIDTH SPECIFIC

Designed and built on lasts and molds that are
tooled specifically to designated widths

ASYMMETRICAL LACING

Anatomically correct lacing environment that reduces irritation
and provides increased comfort and fit (AAC: A L Design)

BIOMORPHIC FIT

Upper technology involving flex points over areas of
highest buckling to improve fit and reduce loading at toe-off

BUNION WINDOW

Soft synthetic area on the medial forefoot, reducing the risk of
irritation

AHAR

DUOMAX

AIR CYCLE VENTILATION

AHAR RIDE+

DUOTRUSS

ANTI-GRAVEL TONGUE

DYNAMIC DUOMAX

COMFORDRY SOCKLINER

ASICS High Abrasion Resistant rubber on the outersole.
Helps cut down on excessive wear

A dual-density midsole system positioned to enhance support
and stability

AHAR Ride+ is an advanced outsole material with virtually the
same lightness and grip properties as ASICS’ conventional
rubber, with the advantage of being three times more durable.

Improves arch support and torsion stability with
dual-hardness system softer on lateral side.

PGUARD

Reinforced compound attached to forefoot providing
increased durability and protection

An upgrade of the current DuoMax system by distributing local
pressure proportionally to increase stability while providing
improved comfort

RHYNO SKIN

DYNAMIC FOREFOOT CRADLE

Abrasion and tear resistant synthetic leather for increased upper
durability

Reinforced EVA component contoured to provide medial
stability to the forefoot

GUIDANCE LINE

CLUTCH COLLAR

A combination of dual layered heel parts on the upper
connecting to the shoe laces to improve overall fit

DISCREET EYELET

As part of biomorphic, a new lacing system that uses
independent placed eyelets. This evens the lacing tension
across the foot, creating a customized fit and enhanced upper
comfort

FLUID FIT

A technical mesh material that stretches in multiple
directions, creating a glove, “snug like” fit that provides a
unique balance of comfort and fit

HEEL CLUTCHING SYSTEM

External heel counter to improve fit and comfort while remaining
lightweight

HEEL FOAM

Re-designed memory foam in the heel results in an
outstanding rearfoot fit whilst providing higher levels
of durability

INNER LOCK LACING

Asymmetrical internal straps to secure foot to
platform of shoe, improving fit and stability

LACE POCKET

Pocket enabling laces to be tucked in and unexposed

PHF

This Personal Heel Fit moulds and customizes itself
to the individual heel shape of each wearer

ZIP CLOSURE

Zip on the medial side allows for easy access in
and out of the shoe

Longitudinal groove that decouples tooling along the
line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency

DISCREET SOLE

GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC

A more flexible outsole construction that utilizes discreet segments
to allow for more natural function of the foot during gait

This new Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction
providing enhanced gait efficiency and structural integrity to
the midfoot.

FLUID RIDE

A two layered midsole that provides the
ultimate in “bounce back” & cushioning
characteristics. While also lightweight,
it is great for runners who compress the midsole

PROPULSION PLATE

GEL

SOFTTOP DUOMAX

Shock absorbing material placed in midsole of shoe.
Shape of units designed for special function

Employs a thin, softer layer that sits on top of main
stability component in midsole for comfort

GENDER SPECIFIC CUSHIONING (GSC)

TRUSSTIC

Special hardened unit placed in forefoot for more efficient
propulsion phase

Molded compound under midfoot area.
Provides a controlled and contoured midsole while improving
arch support and torsion stability

Separate piece of material that is in the forefoot of the midsole.
The womens piece is softer compared to mens, allowing the lighter
frame of women to feel cushioning available in forefoot

HG10MM
PLUS3

REMOVABLE SOCKLINER

An EVA or SpEVA sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot,
which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic

SPEVA MIDSOLE

Midsole material that improves bounce back characteristics and
decrease midsole breakdown

SPEVA LASTING 45

Employs 45 degree hardness SpEVA Lasting material for soft
platform feel

SPEVA LASTING 55

Employs 55 degree hardness SpEVA Lasting material
for soft but stable platform feel

UNIQUE SOCKLINER

A sockliner that allows you to measure the foot before purchase.
Childrens models only.

Gusseted construction prevents debris from
entering the shoe

Provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial
properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment

GILLED MESH

A specialised mesh placed strategically on the upper
allows for improved airflow and breath ability

MAGIC VENTILATION

Vented midsole and outsole minimizes weight and maximizes
breath ability

WATER RESISTANCE

Treatment on microscopic scale giving fabric water
resistance or other performance characteristics

3M REFLECTIVITY

Employs 45 degree hardness Solyte Lasting material
for soft platform feel

GORE-TEX

A new system which improves and flows air circulation inside
the shoe

MULTI-FUNCTION CLEATS

Gusseted construction prevents debris from
entering the shoe

PLASMASHIELD

Shifts body mass forward reducing strain on lower limbs

3mm of additional midsole height at heel on womens models helps
relieve strain on achilles tendon to improve comfort

A new system which improves and flows air circulation inside
the shoe

DUOSOLE
g

Outsole construction offering lightweight and flexible traction

FLUID RIDE

A two layered midsole that provides the
