The GEL-CUMULUS 20 G-TX road running shoe for women will take you comfortably over medium or long distances while keeping your feet dry in unforgiving weather. Thanks to the seamless Gore-Tex fabric upper, which makes the GEL-CUMULUS 20 G-TX waterproof and breathable rain, slushy snow and lingering puddles will become part of your running adventure as you let nothing stand in the way of your run. The Gore-Tex fabric keeps water on the outside of the shoe while allowing heat and perspiration to escape, ensuring your feet stay ventilated, cool and dry. These repellent properties, along with the removable ComforDry Sockliner - which provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties - create an all-round healthier environment for your feet. Made for neutral pronation runners the new GEL-CUMULUS 20 G-TX features improved reinforced forefoot overlays, SpEVA 45 insole, reduced seams and an improved heel lining. The Impact Guidance System features linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off while a FluidRide midsole provides the ultimate in bounce back and cushioning characteristics without adding weight. Visible ASICS GEL in the rear foot and fore foot attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. Night runners will appreciate the reflective detail that keeps you visible in low light conditions.
The GORE-TEX water-repellent Gore-Tex laminate is the ideal garment for any outdoor activity. Providing reliable protection against the wind and the weather, the GORE-TEX membrane provides high breathability. Thus, the body is kept dry and cooled during exertion. At rest, the material offers warming comfort.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
