When designing the new GEL-Nimbus® 17, ASICS opted for a little more revolution than evolution. Serious weight reduction takes centre stage, with a nearly seamless FluidFit® upper that fits and feels like a runner’s dream. The new FluidRide™ midsole and extended Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning system improve upon the already famously plush and luxurious ride. Nothing but the best would do underfoot, thus a new top-of-the-line ComforDry™ X-40 Sockliner sits atop new full-length ComforDry™ lasting for the ultimate in cushioning and comfort.
- FluidRide® provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability
- Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems attenuate shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allow movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle
- ASICS FluidFit™ upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit
- Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment
