Designed for long-distance runs, the Asics Gel Kayano 26 Platinum is a stability running shoe created for runners and athletes who suffer from overpronation. It is a special edition of a classic running shoe serries from Asics that features a blend of eye-catching contemporary design and comfort.
For high-density shock absorption, the Gel technology is incorporated into the midsole of the Gel Kayano 26 Platinum. The Gel cushioning and FlyteFoam Propel material are working together to provide a lightweight and responsive ride.
The Asics High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) outsole delivers exceptional durability and protection, while the mesh top offers breathable comfort.
The Asics Gel Kayano 26 Platinum is available in standard shoe length for both men and women versions. The technical features that affect the fit of the shoe include the SpEVA insole, which delivers a high level of comfort. Other elements are the shoelaces and padded tongue that provide a snug and customized in-shoe fit.
Just like the Asics Gel Kayano 26, this special platinum edition utilizes the AHAR outsole. It is a tough rubber compound that is positioned in the heel for superior durability. This material helps minimize excessive wear for long-term use.
The rubber in the forefoot is made out of a blown AHAR compound called the DuraSponge Outsole. This technology offers flexibility and boosts the shoe’s cushioning performance.
In the midsole of the Gel Kayano 26 Platinum is a lightweight foam material called FlyteFoam Propel technology. This midsole material provides excellent cushioning and supports the foot during toe-off.
The FlyteFoam Propel is coupled with the Gel technology for enhanced shock absorption. The Gel cushioning is placed in both the forefoot and rearfoot sections, allowing for smooth transitions. This element attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases for a comfortable and responsive ride.
The Duomax Support System is used to provide stability. It is a dual-density midsole system that is incorporated into the shoe to provide a more stable ride. The Impact Guidance System is also included in the shoe, promoting a more natural gait from heel-strike to toe-off.
Reducing the weight of the sole is the Guidance Trusstic System. This component delivers a lightweight ride without compromising the structural integrity of the shoe.
Providing added comfort is the SpEVA insole. Aside from providing added cushioning, this material also offers additional underfoot protection.
A jacquard mesh top is featured in this Asics running shoe for breathability. This lightweight material allows the foot to breathe and stay dry for an extended period. Reflective elements are also infused in the upper for increased visibility during late-night adventures.
An external heel counter is added in the shoe for a secure ride. This component holds the foot in place while walking or running for a non-slip fit. A padded tongue is also used in the shoe for added comfort and protection.
The traditional lacing system is utilized for a personalized fit. The shoelaces allow the user to adjust the comfort around the shoe.
