ASICS High Abrasion Rubber

ASICS didn’t scrimp in value when it opted to use a top-grade, abrasion-resistant rubber compound in the outsole makeup. Notably, the durable AHAR+ (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) composite, which is carefully mapped on the high-wear zones of the outsole. This patented ASICS rubber delays any signs of excessive wear, thus putting more life to the Gel Court Speed.

ASICS Court Speed has got an excellent grip

This AHARPlus is designed with an improved herringbone tread pattern that offers traction on any court surface. The right amount of grip gives users the flexibility to push around the court in a fraction of a second.

Prevents excessive torsion

Working doubly hard than any significant components of the Gel Court Speed by ASICS is the midsole. The Trusstic System is fixed into this middle section of the shoe.

ASICS Gel Court Speed Prevents excessive torsion

It prevents excessive torsion that can injure the foot and ankle. This piece of resin engineering inhibits the foot from twisting dangerously and painfully as it moves at different angles inside the court. 

Excellent stability

Illustrating, the midfoot foam is carved out which gives way to this shank and strengthens the shoe’s stability. It is fixed under the arch section that suppresses inward twisting of the foot during landings while allowing outward turning during toe-offs.

Duomax technology

The Duomax technology is also fused into the trainer giving added support. It is made of a firm sponge that controls the inward rolling of the heel as the foot hits the court surface.

Flat-footed users who tend to tilt their feet inward are benefitting from this tiny unit since it moderates the degree of stress on the foot due to overpronation. 

Excellent cushioning of the Gel Court

As its name suggests, the midfoot gets its cushioning benefits from ASICS’ proprietary Gel units, strategically placed in the heel and forefoot. This Gel system uses a particular type of silicone that delivers favorable shock absorption.

The Gel pads have independent functions. The one under the ball of the foot diminishes stress forces that typically occur during propulsion. On the contrary, the Gel cushioning fixed on the rear side reduces impact during heel strikes. 

Lessens the chances of blisters

The upper of the Gel Court Speed is made of synthetic material and mesh that are done in a seamless manner. This method lessens the chances of blisters caused by friction and irritation that are common to uppers made of seams and stitches.

Toe protection

Reinforcing the outer membrane is the PGuard Toe Protector. It helps shield the forefoot from immediate damage caused by inevitable foot-dragging during serves and volleys.
