Encourages the foot to flex naturally

AHAR or Asics High Abrasion Rubber is made of a resilient compound that is capable of shielding the critical areas of the platform from wear and tear.

It is layered explicitly on the contact points of the heel and forefoot. Flex grooves encourage the foot to flex naturally as it cycles through each step.

FuzeX Rush Adapt provides shock-attenuating system

The toe-off phase of the gait is the one that benefits the most from this construction because it is the point during the run that maximizes the bending capacity of the metatarsals, muscles, and tendons.

Delivers a springy toe-off

Its job is to attenuate the impact forces during the foot-strike and to deliver a springy toe-off. A sock liner offers additional support for the foot-pad.
