I’m very excited about the recent launch of ASICS newest trail running shoe, the GEL-FujiRado. The GEL-FujiRado incorporates a range of technologies and features – including the micro-adjustable Boa System for the first time in ASICS performance running footwear.

I don’t know about you but my Laces are always an irritation when I run, I have yet to run with this system but I’m very excited for the technology –

Bye-bye to pushing laces into the side of my shoe!

The Boa System allows for a customized, secure and comfortable fit providing a more efficient stride and increased stability. After over two years of collaboration and development, the GEL-FujiRado is designed to rule the trails.

“Technology and innovation are at the core of the ASICS brand and we are always looking for ways to enhance our performance trail footwear to give runners an edge,” said Gerard Klein, Senior General Manager, Global Performance Running Footwear Division, ASICS Corporation.

“Trail runners encounter some of the most difficult terrain and weather conditions during their workouts and we wanted to create a shoe that allows for quick adjustments without slowing them down.”

Designed for Speed and Security the GEL-FujiRado features symmetrical medial and lateral panels and heel hold for ascent and descent on the trail. The MONO-SOCK® upper, secure lace containment, aggressive outsole lugs and a strengthened toe bumper allow runners to take on challenging terrain.

Customized for the perfect Fit and optimum comfort the technologically advanced Boa System allows for micro-adjustments, creating a precision fit that keeps runners in control on the trail. Each turn of the Boa dial equates to one millimetre of tension, allowing for quick on-the-fly adjustments. The low friction design delivers uniform closure, reducing pressure points and enhancing comfort. The trail shoe also includes ASICS’ SpEVA® Midsole to provide improved rebound.

Understanding the Boa:

The Boa System is made up of three integral parts: the dial, lace, and guide. The system is lightweight and durable, designed for the trail environment and built to perform in muddy and wet conditions.

“Boa is excited to collaborate with ASICS on the GEL-FujiRado and help the ASICS runner push their performance further,” said Chuck Mason, Chief Commercial Officer, Boa Technology, Inc.

“The Boa System allows the runner to dial in a precise fit and will stay secure mile after mile.”

This amazing piece of footwear integrates perfectly with your feet, The Boa System and TX4 soft lacing material promotes good pliability and reduced pressure points.The MONO-SOCK construction helps seal out debris and holds your foot to the platform, delivering protection and fit that lets you conquer any terrain. SpEVA Midsole material makes for a protective and responsive ride, while the higher-density AHAR Outsole ensures exceptional traction & durability.

I’m definitely gonna have to get my feet into a pair of there – So excited!

Will let you know what I think!

Happy Running!
