More flexibility, support, and stability 

The outsole of the Cumulus 17 has the ASICS High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR). It provides responsiveness, flexibility, and cushioning while keeping the foot protected from shock and abrasion. 

This rubber material ensures that the traction is superb for all types of weather and surface, even on wet grounds during heavy rains.

In the outsole is placed the Guidance Line, which adds even more flexibility, support, and stability.

ASICS Gel Cushioning Technology

The midsole of this shoe features an improved construction. The Gel cushioning technology, which is also used in the Gel Cumulus 20, is combined with the FluidRide cushioning system, which is an evolution in the midsole technology. 

It provides not just the adaptability but also the bounce and the softness while keeping the midsole durable even on long and high-mileage runs.

The Fluidride is a combination of the SpEVA and the Super Solyte material. These are both integrated into the IGS system of the midsole, giving runners a new style of running in a more cushioned way. 

This system enhances the ASICS Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel Cushioning system.

Seamless Design for Maximum Comfort

The upper of this ASICS running shoe has a seamless construction that comprises the Sandwich Mesh and HotMelt overlays.
