- Asics improved the superb performance of the original FujiRunnegade by introducing in the 2nd version a new upper membrane called the Plasmaguard Technology, which effectively keeps off mud and water without adding weight to the shoe.
- From moderately aggressive lugs, the latest version of the Gel FujiRunnegade 2 now features massive 6mm lugs that are just unbelievable in helping runners and obstacle course racers tackle extremely difficult and challenging terrains.
- Asics removed the prominent overlay on the medial side and replaced it with the welded Asics logo. The logo doubles as part of the midfoot support and enhances the aesthetic value of the shoe.
- Finally, this Asics trail running shoe is lighter than the past version, which means that it lessens foot fatigue and enhances the shoe’s performance on technical trails as it is nimbler than before.
The Asics FujiRunnegade 2’s fit and sizing are mirror replicas of the original model. It has an average measurement from the heel to the forefoot with just enough volume in the toe box. Runners having standard foot measurements will find the fit and sizing generally within their comfort zones. Available widths are D and B while sizes are from 6 to 14 for the men’s and 5 to 11 for the women’s.
Opposite facing lugs dominate the outsole. The configuration of the lugs provides spectacular grip on different surfaces. These are 6mm lugs that also deliver serious traction and durability.
Similar to the popular Asics Gel Contend 4, the FujiRunnegade 2 uses the Gel Cushioning System in the rear takes much of the impact upon landing. This silicone-based material compresses to absorb shock and returns the force for better propulsion. Occupying the main midsole is the top of the line Asics Solyte technology. It is a very lightweight, durable, and responsive foam.
The closed mesh gives adequate breathability that is needed for every run. Keeping dirt and debris off is pulled off by the FujiRunnegade 2 by using a cleatie construction. It is the kind of fit that wraps the foot entirely in comfort and protection. Part of the anti-debris protection is an anti-gravel tongue. Protecting the shoe against mud and water is the new Plasmaguard Technology. This is an upper membrane that is not totally waterproof, but keeps water off as long as the runner does not wade into the water.
