ASICS TRABUCO MAX 2: THE HIGHLIGHTS.

It should be noted that the Japanese house continues to expand the use of recycled materials for the manufacture of their models, positioning itself in the market of sustainable brands that collaborate in the elimination of waste from the planet and reducing the carbon footprint of the textile industry.
TYPE OF RUNNER
This shoe could perfectly represent the most comfortable Asics trail shoe until now.
It is designed for comfort, with an oversize stack height of 43mm/38mm, that to give us an idea it would be forbidden in official competitions if we were talking about asphalt competitions.
A shoe that can be used mainly for the beginners, new comers who do not enter into very technical terrain, it could perfectly be a great shoe for elite runners who also want comfort in their daily training or a perfect companion for ultras not very technical.
Other than that, to point out just one detail, the stack height that before seemed exclusive from HOKA, are more and more being adapted by Salomon, Saucony, Asics as has been proven that in one hand it is what the big audience is demanding, and in the other hand, it helps us to feel more comfortable for a longer amount of time, thanks to the big “mattress”.
ASICSTRABUCO MAX 2: UPPER
The jacquard mesh upper keeps the feet cool and dry in the long trail runs this shoes are designed for.
ASICS TRABUCO MAX 2: MIDSOLE
The midsole features a combination of FF BLAST PLUS cushioning.
Also used in the METASPEED racing models, this foam helps creates one of the lightest and bounciest running experiences. The heel stabilizer helps support the foot and create a more balanced stride
The thickness of the sole is 43 mm, which to give us an idea would be forbidden in official World Athletics competitions.
ASICS TRABUCO MAX 2: SOLE
The ASICS TRABUCO MAX 2 maintains for another year the sole of the Japanese brand, the Asicsgrip, a sole that has been surprising us very pleasantly since we tried it on the first models and that stands out for its good behavior and great grip in different situations. terrain types.
Like its predecessors in the range, it is estimated to be highly durable thanks to the high-density rubber. This sole model has been redesigned, with a distribution similar to its predecessor but with a change in the shape of the studs, now being two symmetrical lines in the shape of a spike with a central hollow, replacing the previous triangular shape.
The distribution of the lugs is classic… with nuances, pay attention: Front in one direction to drive in the direction of the race and in ascents, and in the opposite position on the heel to favor grip on the descent.
ASICS TRABUCO MAX 2: CONCLUSIONS.
Asics has just presented the second version of the, already classic Trabuco saga, with this new model that comes as a revolution related to the previous model.
The Asics Trabuco Max 2 has really similar numbers as the Salomon Glide Max Trail that we introduced you here, which show us how all brands are going more and more into the same direction, which if you allow me was started by HOKA some years ago.
By numbers, this Trabuco Max 2 can become one of the most used trail running shoes by the popular runners for their daily workouts who prioritize cushioning and comfort over fast rhythms.
The sole, with the Asicsgrip compound, is a durability insurance, so necessary in this type of shoes intended to run long distances without excessive wear of the sole.
Alternatives? Among those of other brands, we could point out:
SACUCONY XODUS TRAIL: Similar concept for long and agile running, with a bit more weight and deeper lugs.
SALOMON GLIDE MAX TRAIL: The maximalist version of the Glide max fro asphalt for long and fast on a thick mattress.
HOKA SPEEDGOAT 5: training/competition shoe which offers the perfect combination between weight 291 g., comfort and durability all of them provided by the midsole and Vibram Megagrip sole.
