 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Asics Gel Fuji Racer

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • October 2012

 

ASICS combines rugged protection with nimble performance to create the new GEL Fuji Racer.   Built specifically to gobble up the trails, featuring full-ground contact, aggressive outsole lugs.

The Asics Fuji Racer weighs in at 8.8 ounces and comes with a 6 mm drop.   The upper features a gusseted tongue, lace garage, GEL Cushioning and open mesh fabric.   The outsole has an aggressive lug pattern to grip the trail terrain.

The Fuji Racer offers good cushioning, especially in the forefoot.  A full-ground contact outsole rolls well over all surfaces and provides solid grip on loose terrain.   The minimum neutral trail shoe is designed for daily training and features a semi-curved shape.   Gel cushioning in the heel of the Asics Gel Fuji Racer provides shock absorption upon impact. Meanwhile, a Solyte midsole provides responsive and durable cushioning.   The Asics Gel Fuji Racer is built with open mesh for a breathable feel.

These shoes felt good for mid to long trail training runs.  Also, I have used them for a few half marathons  which the shoe felt sturdy and solid.
