  • 80 / 100 | Active Gear Review

    When striding out long, the heel toe transition became really smooth and enjoyable – when striding short and using a forefoot strike, the shoe felt a bit out of sorts, and almost clunky.

Updates to Asics Gel Noosa Tri 10

  • The major update of the Asics Gel Noosa Tri 10 was found in its midsole. It comes with a lighter Solyte midsole material that still delivers right amount of cushioning and added durability.

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 10 size and fit

The 10th version of the Asics Gel Noosa Tri has a standard running shoe length. It can accommodate runners with regular foot measurements. Its semi-curved shape adheres to the natural shape of the human foot. It is available in standard widths for men’s and women’s version.


The shoe features the Asics’ Wet Grip Outsole element which is made from both organic and non-organic components. This element is specifically designed to deliver reliable traction even on wet surfaces. The Trusstic System is also added to reduce the weight of the sole without affecting the shoe’s integrity. The Durasponge Outsole element also gives added durability.


A lighter Solyte midsole material is used in this use. It is specifically added to the shoe to deliver reliable cushioning. It also gives added durability without adding to much weight. It works perfectly with the brand’s notable rearfoot and forefoot gel cushioning system that is design to attenuate shock and deliver a smoother heel-to-toe transition. Guidance Line midsole technology is also used in this shoe to improve gait efficiency.


The Asics Gel Noosa Tri 10 has a seamless upper construction that is designed to minimize blistering and irritation. This works perfectly with the elastic laces that allow runners to put on the shoe easily and securely. The glow-in-the-dark prints give added visibility while running on low lights.
