Asics Metaride for those long runs
Asics has revealed a new concept, the Metaride™ running shoe, designed for long distances.
Claiming to be one of Asics' most important innovations in seven decades, and developed over two years at the Asics Institute of Sport Science in Kobe, Japan, Metaride is engineered to minimise movement in the ankle joint where most energy is expended.
Proven to offer a total reduction of energy loss at the ankle joint by almost one fifth, the difference could be major for long distance runners who want to achieve their full potential.
The key to creating the most efficient run possible was the discovery of new revolutionary Guidesale™ technology; a precision-shaped curved sole that works by shifting the body weight forward and propelling runners on to give the feeling of effortless motion.
Asics says the result is an energy-saving shoe that provides a new running sensation with the potential to significantly improve performance and protection to help runners of every level keep going longer than they thought possible.
Metaride optimises all three phases of the gait cycle to create improved static fit and grip to reduce ankle movement throughout the stride while also maintaining stability and durability4
Asics President Yasuhito Hirota says Metaride demonstrates the brand's commitment to continue to accelerate how runners move through cutting-edge product and services.
"We believe this new technology has the potential to disrupt the world of long-distance running. Our athletes and runners have told us that Metaride is already transforming how they train, race, run and recover."
