Utilizing the data accumulated from its athletes over the past year, ASICS introduces the METASPEED EDGE+ and METASPEED SKY+, two refined racing silhouettes crafted to more accurately cater to two distinct running styles and allow runners to reach new personal bests.
The METASPEED EDGE+ is designed to help cadence-type runners go faster by extending their stride length while allowing them to control their cadence more effectively. An energetic midsole underfoot — which houses a propulsive carbon plate — allows for a better gait motion for a longer time, which, in turn, makes it easier to conserve energy across larger distances.
Similarly, the METASPEED SKY+ is also designed to help runners increase their stride length, but thanks to an FF BLAST TURBO foam underfoot and a carbon plate will return more of a bounce-back and will allow energy conservation while maintaining pace towards the end of a race.
On April 24, ASICS athletes will be pushing themselves in the soon-to-be-released METASPEED + series in Malaga, Spain, to reach their own personal bests, in an event titled META : Time : Trials, which you can catch live here from 7:30am CET.
Both silhouettes are slated to be landing on June 14 and will be available globally via the ASICS webstore.
