Asics Gel-Cumulus 21
ASICS Gel-Cumulus 21 Women's Running Shoes
GEL-Cumulus offers premium technology and a refined design that offers optimal support and comfort for runners of all levels. A FlyteFoam midsole teams up with rearfoot and forefoot GEL cushioning for a smooth, lightweight ride that maintains full contact with the ground. Its jacquard mesh upper elevates the styling and forms to your foot for a fit that feels customised just for you.
Jacquard mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. The new, stretchy mesh flexes with your foot for a smooth, distraction-free ride, and a wider toe box allows for comfortable splay and therefore a more efficient push-off. A seamless construction produces an irritation-free fit, whilst minimising bulk, weight and layers, because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day. Independently placed eyelets embellish the shoe, dispersing lace tension to further enhance the customised fitting environment and comfort of the Cumulus 21. Reflective elements complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles to keep you safe on those low-light road runs.
An Ortholite sockliner lies atop a bouncy midsole, implemented to supply an extra layer of plush and hygienic step-in comfort. This premium product features higher rebound properties but also provides excellent moisture-management and a high level of breathability; so you stay damp-free and comfortable on hot, longer distance days. FluidRide technology, a two layered midsole construction, features for a winning combination of cushioning and bounce-back. The luxurious SpEVA and Solyte material fusion results in comfort, durability and light weight, cushioning the foot and supplying energy-packed bounce to minimise fatigue. Sitting beneath the FluidRide platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, are the Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems; these work to reduce shock during the impact phase, sparing your joints as you sprint down onto hard, unforgiving concrete, and allow movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. A combination of all-new FlyteFoam Lyte and FlyteFoam Propel run through the base of the shoe. FlyteFoam Lyte's formula features a reinforced, sustainable nanofibre compound which increases the foam's durability and provides more stability for runners, buffering against the ground to protect the wearer from unnecessary stress and fatigue. FlyteFoam Propel is designed to provide enhanced responsiveness at toe-off; increased energy-return means your use of superfluous muscle power is reduced and performance is enhanced.
The Guidance Line, a vertical flex groove which decouples the tooling along the line of progression, works to enhance gait efficiency. An AHAR outsole completes the Cumulus 21, strategically placed to provide extra durability and traction in high-stress areas. The closely spaced tread provides superior multi-directional grip and full ground contact, allowing stability on wet and dry ground. Flex grooves adorn the outsole, introduced to promote natural foot flexion for easy, unhindered paces. For the athletes who crave seamless comfort and a gentle ride, choose the Gel-Cumulus 21.
