Designed for speed and unpredictable terrain, these lightweight shoes give you a comfortable fit and excellent grip. The minimal layer upper and speed lacing system combine to make the shoes lightweight and practical. Maximum traction is provided with AHAR+ rubber compounds located in the outsole.
The upper of the Asics Gel-FujiViper is constructed using a synthetic mesh which helps to create a cool, healthy environment for your feet. The mesh actively and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to leave your feet cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. As well as eradicating sweat and moisture, the mesh improves ventilation while synthetic overlays add protection and durability to the upper. In addition, the overlays offer a wrap-around feel. The padded tongue guards against friction and irritation such as chafing.
A quick lacing system provides a practical, secure fastening for your feet. This is used to deliver a more improved feel without having to tie laces or tuck them in if they are too long. Simply tighten or loosen the fastening device to meet your individual requirements, and for easy put on and take off. The excess lacing can be securely tucked away in the lace pocket which is situated on the tongue. A heel loop provides further assistance when putting the shoe on.
Extra protection is provided by the toe bumper, which prevents debris from entering the shoe or the mesh from becoming damaged by unpredictable terrain or objects you typically encounter on trails. A removable EVA sockliner moulds to the shape of your foot and can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
The Solyte midsole offers an abundance of cushioning and comfort to deliver a more comfortable, plush ride. Solyte is a lighter weight midsole compound than typical EVA or SpEVA. This is to produce further cushioning and responsiveness as well as lessening impact placed on your joints. Rearfoot GEL attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance.
The Gel FujiViper features a durable and aggressive trail specific outsole which welcomes rough and challenging terrain. It consists of AHAR+, a lighter version of AHAR, which is a tough material placed in critical areas of the shoe to provide excellent grip without compromising durability. Strategically placed lugs offer increased uphill and downhill traction on all types of terrain, preventing slippage during wet and muddy conditions.
The signature Asics Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.
