ASICS has unveiled and made available the all-new GEL-KAYANO 29, one of its most famous, popular and long-lived models.
If numbers are added to its name (29 versions!), grams are subtracted from its weight: in fact, this new model weighs 10 grams less than its predecessor, obtained mainly due to the presence of an upper that, thanks to the strength of the mesh used, required fewer layers while not compromising strength.
Not only less weight but also more stability
However, it is not only the reduced weight that is the big news of the KAYANO 29, which has always been a very protective and stable shoe. The top of the midsole, and throughout its length, is made entirely of FF BLAST™ PLUS, which is ASICS’ FlyteFoam foam capable of great lightness and equally powerful responsiveness. If that were not enough, and to further enhance stability, there is also the LITETRUSS™ technology, which is the anti-torsion rigid foam that helps prevent the runner’s foot from moving too far inward during stride, ensuring protection during long training runs and marathons.
The GEL-KAYANO 29 has also an internal buttress with additional external TPU support that can stabilize the heel landing for an additional level of protection.
The ASICS GEL-KAYANO 29 are available for men and women for $190.00 in all stores and online at the ASICS store.
