The Asics GEL-Quanum is the brand’s first ever runner to feature full length Gel cushioning.
While Gel cushioning is nothing new, this is the first time we’ve seen it implemented full-length.
Aesthetically, they look little like a gummy worm, which are kind of gel-like, but they should provide runners with plenty of cushion under foot.
Asics states the Gel-Quantum features 360-degree GEL® technology to give a “pillow-soft” ride. Weight is listed at 13.76 oz while the heel to toe drop is listed at 21mm in the rear and 14mm in the front. Materials look to be some sort of mesh, but it’s hard to tell as the images can only be enlarged so much before they get grainy.
There are currently 4 colorways available — two for Men and two for Women. You can find both available now at Asics.com for $180.
