Profile of the Asics Gel Resolution 6

Asics added the Gel Resolution 6 to its lineup of hard court warriors. It wowed in the areas of underfoot support and responsiveness as it features the brand’s innovative Fluidride and Gel cushioning units. Asics aimed to keep everything at an average weight with the incorporation of the Solyte foam. 

Stability was another concern addressed by this Japanese label when it added an external heel counter. The Flexion Fit upper gets an extended coverage in this modified version for enhanced lateral support.

Outsole

Wear-resistant. Tailor-made for the hardcourt, the Asics Gel Resolution 6 is devised with the AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) Plus. Plotted on the heavy contact zones of the outsole, this highly wear-resistant rubber compound is ready for repeated pounding on the court. AHAR Plus is present in this profile so the user can maintain longer hours on the hardcourt with minimal traction issues. 

Protective. On the tip of this trainer is the PGuard toe protector, a rubber component that serves as a layer of defense against toe dragging.         

Durable. The Gel Resolution 6 is designed to keep up with the prolonged matches on the hard court. An indication of this is the six-month outsole durability warranty attached to this high-performing court trainer. Such assurance implies that the shoe can outlast the abrasive composition of hard courts at least half a year. Under such a warranty, the user can have his pair replaced if the outsole obtains significant damage less than the said period.

Midsole

Foam cushioning. Several pioneering components are squeezed into the midsole that altogether meant to offer plush ride when moving along the baseline or hitting the net. The full-length sole integrates the dual-layered Fluidride technology that’s designed to deliver shock absorption and rebound in a lightweight frame. The impact-protection units that make up this cushioning property are the lightweight Solyte and the high-bounce SpEVA. 

Added comfort. Creating another layer of support against impact are the Gel cushioning systems lodged under the ball of the foot and heel. 

Midfoot support. The Trusstic System works as a midfoot stabilizer. It’s made of a resin that’s placed under the arch of the foot that discourages excessive twisting.

Upper

Form-fitting. The Flexion Fit engineering securely wraps the foot, while offering a firm and sturdy hold without constricting movement. 

Comfortable. Like the earlier varieties of the Gel Resolution, this sixth-generation comes with a padded collar for extra comfort. Comprising of two layers of memory foam, the PHF (Personal Heel Fit) Collar Lining molds and hugs the heel for a noticeable customized fit.
