Ensures optimal level of durability for high-mileage runs

Using Asics’ High-Abrasion Rubber or AHAR, the outsole of this shoe becomes similar to car tires, thus ensuring an optimal level of durability. The AHAR claims to be two times more efficient than ordinary rubber when it comes to abrasion resistance.

This notable outsole material has been used in other road shoes like the Cumulus 20. The Trusstic System offers stability by installing a reinforced midfoot area that averts the foot from twisting.

On top of the Trusstic system is the DynaTruss technology, which works in preventing compression by minimizing the amount of foam.

Asics Dynamis flex grooves

The Dynamis construction also includes the Guidance Line, a vertical flex groove that runs from the forefoot to the heel of the outsole. Located in the lateral area, it promotes the most efficient and most repeatable stride and decreases the risk of fatigue and injury by ensuring a consistent load from heel strike to toe-off.

55% lighter than the standard EVA foam

The Dynamis makes use of Asics' premier midsole foam, the FlyteFoam, which is 55% lighter than the standard EVA foam. The highly-resilient fibers in the foam enable it to bounce back to its original shape with each stride, making it an adaptive cushioning.

The FlyteFoam is also more durable and claims to have a longer lifespan compared to standard EVA. The goal of the removable Ortholite X-40 sock liner is to be responsive while also providing moisture management and breathability. Both these features aid in keeping the foot dry and away from bacteria.

Asics’ SpevaFoam provides cushioning and comfort

The SpevaFoam 45 Lasting works by making the midsole softer and more accommodating, thus enhancing the shoe’s cushioning and comfort.

With a seamless construction, the upper of the Dynamis offers breathability while also working to reduce friction caused by traditional stitches and seams. It is made from a soft fabric.

Asics Dynamis offers adaptive stability and support 

The DynaPanels are thick overlays that serve as a support structure for the medial arch. They ensure adaptive stability, making it suitable for overpronators and those who just want the extra snugness.

The BOA laces that go through these overlays allow the shoe to be worn with just a turn of a dial, thus resulting in a more supportive and more accurate fit. A Mono-Sock fit system is also in place, which means that instead of a conventional tongue, there is an internal sleeve that provides an elastic, sock-like fit.
