Asics Gel Cumulus 14 Womens
The ASICS GEL-Cumulus 14 is a cushioned trainer with a super plush platform feel. Already lightweight, this edition manages to knock another 20 grams off the shoes weight without comprising comfort and stability.
This edition introduces the Full Length Guidance Line, a groove along the sole that guides your foot through the gait cycle and helps you run more efficiently, even when fatigue sets in.
The womens model introduces Gender Specific Cushioning, making the top layer of the midsole softer to create fantastic platform feel designed specifically for women.
Also new is the Discrete Eyestay Construction, which improves the overall fit by allowing each eyelet to pull directly from the base of the shoe.
Discrete eyestay lacing
A new lacing development that uses indepently placed eyelets. This concept evens the lacing tension across the foot, creating a customized fit and enhanced upper comfort.
Special reflective material which enhances visibility in poor light. 3m Scotchlite is a registered trademark of the 3M Company.
Solyte Midsole Material
Spongy layer between the sole and upper designed to absorb shock and cushion the foot. Solyte is a lighter material than SpEVA and EVA and features enhanced durability.
Guidance Line places a visible groove in the mid and outsole that follows the foot's center of pressure from heel to toe. The result is a more adaptive running platform, creating a smoother transition from heel strike to toe-off with each stride. The Guidance Line thus helps runners to maintain a natural, efficient gait, especially over long distances.
Insole placed inside the shoe which provides cushioning keeping the foot drier and cooler.
I.G.S. (Impact Guidance System)
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.
Space Trusstic System
Plastic bridge under the arch creating a pocket between it and the midsole which improves flexibility and gives the shoe strength and stability.
DuraSponge is a blown AHAR compound for enhanced cushioning and durability in the forefoot. ASICS High Abrasion Resistance Rubber (AHAR) is a tough compound used at the heavy contact area of the outsole.
A sockliner which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
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.
AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Resistant rubber)
Tough material placed in critical areas of heavy contact on the shoe for exceptional durability.
