The GEL-SOLUTION SPEED is the lightest tennis shoe on the market, and serves the needs of more agile players.
The Propulsion Trusstic creates a stable platform and enhances acceleration in sprinting and jumping.
With both Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning, the shoe absorbs impact shock upon landing and take-off, and allows easy forward and sideways movement.
The Solyte midsole material reduces the shoe's weight while creating extra cushioning.
The outsole is reinforced with ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber to make it more durable.
Under the hood
The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is an ASICS design philosophy. It aims to make shoe components from rear to midfoot and forefoot to work together effectively to allow the body to perform in a natural manner. ASICS designers strive to compliment, not correct, how the legs and feet move.
Solyte is a proprietary cushioning material that provides an exceptionally lightweight midsole with excellent bounce-back and durability.
Solyte 55 lasting
Employs 55 degree Solyte lasting material for a soft but stable platform feel
ASICS High Abrasion Resistance Rubber (AHAR) is a tough compound used at the heavy contact area of the outsole, for example the heel. It helps to reduce excessive wear.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
The Trusstic System is a light-weight moulded component which links the rearfoot and forefoot and shores the midfoot as it prepares for propulsion.
