ASICS GEL-KAYANO 18 Women's Running Shoes

asics gel-kayano 18

A number of ASICS innovative technologies delivers a running shoe ideal for the overponator requiring high levels of cushioning and comfort. Below is a list of all the technical features of this shoe starting with the differences and updates from the previously successful model the KAYANO 17.

The new GEL-KAYANO® 18 stays true to its successful reputation between runners, improving upon its famous ride with technically advanced features that consist of a new faster, lighter upper construction, ideal for the serious runner and newly designed Dynamic DuoMax® for improved platform comfort and pronation support.

  • **BRAND NEW** Dynamic DuoMax® - A multi-rigid shape to help with over-pronation. Fans of the KAYANO series will enjoy the same level of support and stability felt in previous models, but weighing in over 28 grams lighter than previous Kayano models.
  • **BRAND NEW** Soft Top DuoMax® - Men on average, typically weigh more than women, which tends to mean they will compress a midsole more than the average woman. Because of this, the GEL-KAYANO 18 is constructed with a firmer 53 degree Solyte® layer for men and a softer 48 degree Solyte for women to help combat this.
  • **BRAND NEW** Heel Clutching System™ - The final update for the Kayano lies with this technology. This removes the traditional internal heel components and replaces it with an exoskeletal heel counter. This provides a more comfortable heel fitting environment while decreasing the probability of friction or irritation which can lead to injury and blisters.
  • **BRAND NEW** DuoTech Warm - This is ideal for warm days with its perfect moisture management it means runners stay comfortable and dry which increases comfort as well as performance. It is part of ASICS's advanced DuoTech range, which provides high-quality, comfortable fabrics that protect and remain comfortable regardless of activity or weather conditions.
  • Asymmetrical Lacing system - A lacing system the follows the natural curve of the foot to ensure a perfect fit and less friction.
  • Decoupled Heel - Addresses shearing forces at heel strike.
  • AHAR+ - This is a thinner and lighter version of ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. It is placed on heavy contact areas of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.
  • Space Master UV - Added to tongue, creating a more effective moisture.
  • *UPDATED* Larger Volume of GEL in the Heel - Improving cushioning and shock absorption.
  • Visible Rearfoot GEL - The ASICS GEL system is based on a special kind of silicon that enables optimal shock absorption. GEL units are strategically placed in the midsole and designed to enable specific functions and positions.
  • Visible Forefoot GEL - The ASICS GEL system is based on a special kind of silicon that enables optimal shock absorption. GEL units are strategically placed in the midsole and designed to enable specific functions and positions.
  • Space Trusstic - An advanced system that creates a pocket between the Trusstic system and the midsole, allowing for greater midsole deformation and more efficient foot function.
  • Durasponge Rubber Forefoot - A blown AHAR rubber outsole material with high abrasion-resistant qualities for added durability, combined with a comfortable cushioned ride.
  • Solyte 55 lasted - Enhancing the cushioning and support by utilizing Solyte in the construction of the shoe between the midsole and the upper. Adjusted in density specific to the level of support required from the running shoe.
  • Removable ComforDry sockliner - This insole provides the optimum cushioning performance system that creates a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment.
  • Gender Specific Midfoot design - Incorporated within Space Trusstic a technology to provide for the different biomechanical function exhibited by the male and female mid foot.
  • Biomorphic Fit - Biomorphic technology is incorporated into the upper where the areas of highest deformation are found. This ensures a better fit, improved comfort, less risk of injury and enhanced performance.
  • Personal Heel Fit - A special foam heel construction that guarantees a perfect fit around the wearer's heel.
  • 3M Reflective- 3M Reflective - Improved footwear visibility when running in low level light.
  • I.G.S - ASICS Impact Guidance System or I.G.S is a technical shoe design philosophy that allows the athlete's foot to perform in a more natural manner. ASICS high-tech I.G.S shoes are constructed in a way that enhances your natural gait cycle.
  • Solyte Midsole - Proprietary cushioning material that provides an exceptionally lightweight midsole with excellent bounce-back and durability.
  • Discrete eyelets - This is where the laces are fed through, which helps to reduce irritation and improve fit.
  • Full-length Guidance Line - To improve running efficiency.
  • Space master UV - ASICS innovative upper material technology. Construction of weave and material provides enhanced moisture management with improved ventilation. Anti UV properties provides protection against harmful effects of the Sun.

This shoe is a constant very popular model for fans of ASICS. The shoe is a great update to the "17", now with more cushioning, bounce back but now even lighter.. Enjoy!

Heelclutch.jpg HEEL CLUTCHING SYSTEM:

An external Pebax Heel Clutching System which works like an exoskeleton, providing support while clearing the heel area of a bulky internal structure. This innovation makes the shoe lighter and eliminates almost everything that might cause blisters or chaffing.

Eyeletslacing.jpg DISCRETE EYELETS LACING SYSTEM:

Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customised fitting environment and enhanced upper comfort.

Gtxupper.jpg GORE-TEX UPPER:

Waterproof and breathable upper designed to protect the foot during extreme weather conditions.

A lacing system that follows the curve on top of the foot in a natural way, to ensure a perfect fit and less friction.

Rhynoskin.jpg RHYNOSKIN:

A moulded midsole component engineered for specific foot types to enhance guidance and fit.

Scotchlite.jpg 3M SCOTCHLITE:

This is a special material that enhances visibility in dark and low light conditions.

Biomorphic.jpg BIOMORPHIC FIT:

The Biomorphic technology is incorporated into the upper where the areas of highest deformation are found. This ensures a better fit, improved comfort, less risk of injury and enhanced performance.

Antigraveltongue-2.jpg ANTI GRAVEL TONGUE:

A special tongue construction that prevents clay entering the shoe.

Innerlocklacing.jpg INNER LOCK LACING:

Lacepocket.jpg LACE POCKET:

This is a feature especially designed for Nordic Walking, which will prevent your poles from becoming caught up in the shoe-laces.

Nanotechnology.jpg NANO TECHNOLOGY:

This treatment on nano scale gives the fabric a water resistant finish without affecting the fabric's properties.

2. MIDSOLE:

Duomax.jpg DUOMAX:

This is an ASICS system that is comprised of 2 different density of midsoles that is designed to help with over-pronation.

Propulsiontrusstic.jpg PROPULSION TRUSSTIC SYSTEM:

The ASICS Propulsion Trusstic System mirrors the functions of the ligaments in the foot.

"So far i am very pleased, have always bought saucony running shoes, but find they do not support my achilles injury very well. Only a few runs in with these and so far havent heard a peep from my achilles! very comfy, very light, slight friction on ball of my feet but dare say they'll toughen up! Good choice."
