GEL-Kinsei 5 Years in the making, ASICS’ innovation lab is proud to present the new GEL-Kinsei 5. Designed to defy convention and engineered for ultimate performance, the GEL-Kinsei series continues to break the mold by delivering maximum comfort and the latest technology. Each component now works even better together and with the runner’s foot. The advanced platform is now built with FluidRide construction and the new modern upper creates a nearly seamless construction, improving comfort and fit as it moves and bends with the foot through every mile. Impact Guidance System (I.G.S) ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. Propulsion Trusstic Mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage. Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement on multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. FluidRide The latest evolution in ASICS midsole technology, FluidRide provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability. Discrete Heel Unit Takes the Impact Guidance System (I.G.S) to a new level by creating our highest degree of shock attenuation and stability. Heel Clutching System Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment. AHAR Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability. ComforDry Sockliner Provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment. P.H.F. (Personal Heel Fit) Two layers of memory foam line the collar and mold to the athlete’s heel, creating a personalized fit. APMA Seal of Acceptance Designated shoes have the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance.
