Reliable surface traction

The outsole unit of the Asics Gel Excite 6 Winterized features a durable rubber layer. The job of this technology is to protect the bottom part of the midsole from the abrasive nature of the surfaces.

It is also responsible for surface traction, a trait that is fundamental to the efficacy of every running shoe.

Gel Excite 6 Winterized offers supportive cushioning

AmpliFoam is a full-length cushioning unit that offers consistent support for the underside of the foot.

This piece aims to energize each step by being responsive, yet it is touted to be durable and flexible at the same time. The natural motion of the foot is enabled by this technology.

Delivers a smooth transition 

GEL is the name of a silicon-based cushioning technology that is wedged into the heel part of the platform.

Asics Gel Excite 6 Winterized delivers smooth transition

This element has the job of absorbing the impact shock generated by the foot-strike, thus delivering a smooth transition through the gait cycle. GEL is used in many Asics series, including the Gel Cumulus roster.

Durable and bendable 

Ortholite is a company that offers insoles that are soft yet able to add some oomph to the underfoot experience. The thin foam is advertised as a durable and bendable add-on that maintains a healthy in-shoe environment through an antimicrobial coating.

The seamless jacquard mesh is used for the upper unit of the Asics Gel Excite 6 Winterized. This technology is tasked with hugging the foot and keeping it in place. It has a close-weave design to ensure warmth when the runner is tackling cold environs. 

Asics Gel Excite 6 Winterized provides a warm shoe-wrap

The upper unit is not waterproof nor water-resistant. The inner lining of this product is made of a textile that helps to preserve a warm shoe-wrap. Seamless support is still highlighted, though insulation is still a priority for this feature.

Printed overlays permit the silhouette to hug the foot securely, keeping it from wobbling during the run or sliding inside the foot-chamber. They also preserve the uncluttered look of the whole product.
