The ASICS GLIDERIDE™ was designed to make you run for longer with less energy. This makes it the perfect companion for long-distance runs.Jan Lau - Keller Sports Pro
GUIDESOLE™ technology in the sole is the highlight of the GLIDERIDE™ model. It works like this: improved cushioning reduces the amount of muscle power needed in every stride. This is achieved via a combination of FLYTEFOAM™ technology and GEL™ cushioning technology.
The stiff forefoot and the dynamically curved sole improve running efficiency by reducing movement in the ankle area. A lower angle in the bend of the ankle means that muscles like the calves suffer less strain. Moving the ankle too much at high speeds results in too high an energy loss. To prevent this, the shoe's centre of gravity is closer to the heel, making it easier to move the foot forwards.
With the GLIDERIDE™ shoe and its GUIDESOLE™ technology, you can save energy, run more efficiently and go much farther. The combination of all these benefits results in a brand new running experience. You have to feel it to believe it.
