*UPDATED* Weight - 223g. A lighter frame to improve the efficiency of the running shoe and reduce drag.
*UPDATED* HG10mm - A heel gradient creating 10mm difference in height between the heel and forefoot which shifts the body mass forward, putting the body into the best biomechanical position for running and reducing strain on the lower limbs.
*UPDATED* California Slip Last - For stability and comfort the upper is stitched around a canvas or EVA board and directly attached to the midsole for improved durability.
Extended Propulsion Trusstic® - This mimics the connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage, getting ready for take-off.
MINIMALIST RUNNING / BAREFOOT RUNNING This is the BIG new story for ASICS in their Spring/Summer Range 2013. Welcome to the ASICS GEL-EXCEL 33-2 With a new lighter weight frame, the Excel 33-2 offers greater efficiency properties, reduced drag and superb comfort. The all new FLUIDAXIS adds uniquely positioned deep flex grooves in the outsole to allow for a more natural motion of the subtalar joint for an improved comfort that is aligned with your ankle joints. At the core of the shoe is the revolutionary Propulsion TrussticTM which mimics the plantar fascia in the arch of your foot, using your foot's energy to propel you forward in your stride. A heel gradient of 10mm between heel and forefoot shifts the body mass forward, putting the body into the best biomechanical position for running and reducing strain on the lower limbs. The full-length Guidance LineTM in the shoe also promotes a more efficient run, encouraging optimum foot positioning from landing through to take off. An exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and an improved heel fitting environment for the serious runner so that you will never feel like you can't tackle an even bigger running challenge.
