The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 G-TX shoe has been re-engineered from top to bottom to assert itself as an all-around trail pioneer. Rugged and comfortable are the two terms that best describe this trail running shoe. It’s for the off-road runner seeking excellent durability, protection, and grip. Additionally, the updated version of our trail shoe is complemented with a GORE-TEX™ upper to help keep feet dry in wet conditions. The advanced comfort comes from the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material that’s coupled with GEL™ technology cushioning in the heel. Equipped with a DUOMAX™ support system that creates a more stable ride, this placement of foam on the medial side of the midsole offers a firmer density that keeps the foot from rotating inward too much (overpronation). The lugged outsole pattern features ASICSGRIP™ rubber while incorporating an uphill and downhill lug pattern on the lateral and medial side of the shoe to improve traction on slippery terrain. Additionally a rock protection plate helps the outsole stay flexible and shield the foot from abrupt terrain or trail debris. The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 G-TX shoe is designed to help you fly through the trails with advanced traction both uphill and downhill, while the responsive midsole foam creates better propulsion throughout your off-road recon.
