Reliable traction over surfaces

AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) is a compound that’s designed to protect the rest of the sole unit from wear-and-tear. It is a popular outsole material used in several Asics running shoes like the Kayano 25 and Nimbus 21.

It also provides traction for the runner to use when taking control of the movements over the surfaces.

Roadhawk FF 2 provides bouncy cushioning 

Flex grooves allow the platform to bend in conjunction with the joints of the toes as the heel-to-toe transition of the step is taking place.

Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the Flytefoam Propel. This full-length elastomer compound is meant to provide a soft platform on which the foot can rest while also ensuring a bouncy liftoff.

Prevents odor and sweat-retention

A sock liner is placed right above the main midsole material. This add-on puts some more cushioning for the underfoot, but it doesn’t impede flexibility.

It has an anti-microbial capacity to prevent odor and sweat-retention. Moreover, it can be removed or replaced with a new one.

Accommodates the flow of air

The upper unit of the Asics Roadhawk FF 2 makes use of Open Mesh, which is comprised of an open-weave material that holds and supports the dimensions of the foot.

It has visible breathing pores to accommodate the flow of air in and through the foot-chamber.

Asics Roadhawk FF 2 provides support to the foot

A set of supportive overlays provides support to the foot. These extra layers are stitched onto the sides and back of the façade, ensuring lateral and heel steadiness.

Asics Roadhawk FF 2 traditional lacing system

A traditional lacing system helps in keeping the foot in place and adjusting the fit. A fabric tongue-anchor prevents tongue deviation, an occurrence that may prove annoying.
