The GEL-DS Trainer® 17 continues to meet the needs of runners looking for a supportive, yet lightweight trainer with the proprietary Clutch Collar System™ for a comfortable and secure rearfoot fit.
Upper: Clutch Collar System™ is a descendant of the Heel Clutching System, an Endoskelatal collar compliments the exoskelatal heel counter for a uniquely secure fit. Biomorphic Fit® design features stretch material strategically placed on the upper that helps reduce buckling and the potential for irritation. 3M® reflective materials designed to enhance visibility during low light hours. Asymmetrical lacing design provides an anatomically correct lacing environment that reduces potential for irritation and provides improved comfort and fit.
Midsole: Impact Guidance System employs linked componentry that enhances the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. 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. ComforDry™ Sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment. DuoMax® Support System is a dual density midsole system that is positioned to enhance support and stability. SoLyte® midsole material provides a lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA® and features enhanced cushioning and durability. The Space Trusstic System® midfoot stabilizer creates a pocket between the Trusstic System® device and the midsole, allowing for controlled midsole deformation and more efficient foot function. Propulsion Trusstic® mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as the foot enters propulsion stage. Dual Density Solyte® 55 Lasting employs 55 degree density of Solyte® lasting material in heel and forefoot for improved comfort.
Outsole: Guidance Line™ vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. AHAR®, ASICS® High Abrasion Rubber is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability. The DuraSponge® outsole features a blown AHAR® rubber compound for enhanced cushioning and durability in the forefoot. WET Grip® outsole is made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces.
