Updates to Asics LyteRacer TS 6
- The Asics LyteRacer TS 6 is a road shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It makes use of a streamlined athletic design to appeal to racing enthusiasts and casual runners. A breathable mesh offers security and ventilation, while stitched and printed overlays reinforce the structure of the facade and the dimensions of the foot.
- The midsole unit features a set of technologies that aim to keep the foot comfortable and energized throughout the run. A soft, full-length foam is responsible for cushioning while a firmer compound in the heel is in charge of holding the rear of the foot steady. A rubber component that’s highly resistant to abrasion covers the foam and shields it from wear and tear.
Asics LyteRacer TS 6 size and fit
The Asics LyteRacer TS 6 has a standard running shoe length. It follows the regular measurements regarding size. The available widths for the women and men’s versions are B – Medium and D – Medium, respectively. The semi-curved shape of this product welcomes the natural curvature of the human foot.
The outsole unit of the Asics LyteRacer TS 6 makes use of AHAR or Asics High Abrasion Rubber. It’s made out of carbon rubber, which is very resistant to wear and tear. It covers the foam midsole and protects it from the potentially damaging nature of the asphalt. The AHAR is also used in the Asics Gel DS Trainer 24, a stability shoe for the road.
Flex grooves are added to the forefoot area. These shallow trenches encourage the flexibility of the foot, thus enabling and energizing the toe-off phase of the gait cycle.
Shapes, patterns and non-prominent gripping lugs heighten surface grip, especially when it comes to rapid movement changes like turns and swerves.
The SpEVA is a midsole compound that runs the entire length of the Asics LyteRacer TS 6. It carries the foot and cushions it throughout the running session. It also attenuates shock and energizes the tendons and muscles for the toe-off. The SpEVA also makes its way into this shoe's successor, the LyteRacer TS 7.
A firm material called Heel Stabilizer is placed in the rear part of the platform. Its purpose is to hold the heel in place and keep it steady.
A thermal plastic unit in the midfoot called Trusstic System reinforces the midsole foam. By doing so, the platform won’t sag or break down quickly. Another purpose of this element is acting as a foundation for the midfoot, fundamentally keeping it upright and engaged throughout the run.
A Perforated Sockliner affords added cushioning. Its ventilation pores accommodate air-circulation, thereby maintaining a cool and dry underfoot experience.
The Speed Mesh is a material that covers the foot and keeps it ventilated. It’s specially designed to let the runner feel speedy because it doesn’t have a substantial weight.
A mix of printed and stitched synthetic overlays graces the façade of the Asics LyteRacer TS 6. These add-ons reinforce the structure of the shoe while also giving a secure yet customizable wrap.
The padded tongue and collar cushion the upper areas of the foot. They also prevent any wobbling during the run.
The traditional lacing system helps in securing the foot and maintaining a fit that’s adherent to the preference of the wearer.
