Asics Gel Surveyor 3 Review Facts

Get back on track with a pair of Asics Gel Surveyor 3.  The superior Guidance system or better known as IGS is the first of many great features of this shoe. Another super feature is the FluidRide cushioning which promises to add energy without weighing you down. But let’s not stop there: the DuoMax rolls out support and effectiveness of the Trusstic System thereby partnering with the Gel Cushioning system for one comfortable ride.

We find the midsole not only is smoother in the Surveyor 3, but provides a more comfortable support and lighter feel which in turn provides stability for those mild to moderate pronators. And lastly there is improved cushioning designed for both men and women, giving way to the individual needs of each gender.

Outsole

Asics brings on board AHAR also known as the Asics High Abrasion Rubber with the DuraSponge rubber outsole material, which provides durability and wear-resistance through its responsive lugs for a variety of terrain. Designed with the Guidance Line Flex grooves and the Trusstic System, the outsole provides support and direction for over pronation.

These combinations result in a softer midsole with durability and flexibility, as well as a pillow-like cushion with added support, protection and stability against force and shock.

The Guidance Trusstic System and Guidance Line in the vertical flex groove provide gait efficiency. Great for casual wear, trails, exercise and road. So if the weather man calls for a day that would normally send up a balloon overhead for weather worries on the terrain you may hit on, relax into these running shoes with confidence, they’re a great pair of running shoes with groove, now all you need is a hood to cover your head in case it drizzles.
Responsiveness
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

The forefoot’s responsiveness is mild because of the Gel cushioning System which absorbs shock during ground impact and ground off phases. It does allow extra movement through each transition of the foot cycles. The cushioning is responsive due to its bouncy effect brought to the front during high speeds, while at lower speeds this is not apparent and instead the shoe gives compression through its molded Sockliner and cushioning. If you’re looking for a shoe that does it all, responsive, supportive, energy return and style these are the shoes to go with.
