  • PROS
  • The Asics Nimbus 18 is very solid. Quality Made in Asics!
  • The Nimbus is particularly comfortable, it wraps well the foot, which makes it a shoe suitable for medium races (semi marathon) and long distance (marathon).
  • It makes it possible to evolve as well on road and subdued way.
  • CONS
  • The nimbus is a bit “heavy”, 326 grams, which makes it quite naturally a shoe rather suitable for “heavy” runners, more than 75kgs.
  • It lacks a little dynamism, do not hope to beat a record on a 10kms with the Nimbus.
  • It seems a little wider than normal. This is not necessarily a bad thing.

Technology of Asics Gel Nimbus 18

  • For medium and long distances on roads and tracks
  • Front Gel and Heel : Shock Absorption
  • FluidRide : Rebound, cushioned and lightweight
  • IGS and Guidance Line : Fluidity
  • Trustic System : Stability
  • FluidFit mesh upper : Glove, breathability and precise fit
  • Discrete Eyestay : Customized maintenance and pressure reduction
  • Clutsh Counter : Retention

GS

Calculated positioning of bending notches that guide the boot so that the trajectory of the foot is closest to the ideal movement. Pronators, universals or supinators will find in the IGS the concept adapted to their stride. Its action will be completed by Duomax and Trusstic / Duotruss.

Trusstic

Single-density holding arch positioned in median foot, it respects the natural unfolding of the foot while controlling it. It ensures the stability in support phase and guides the foot in pulse phase, completing the action of the IGS

AHAR +

New density in AHAR. Improves cushioning and resistance.

Guidance Line

Characterized by a visible notch in the midsole and in the sole contact with the ground. This notch follows the center of pressure of the foot from the heel to the toes. This makes it possible to obtain a more adjustable running shoe, creating at each stride a smoother transition between the impact phase and the impulse phase. Thus, the Automatic Guidance Line helps runners to maintain a natural and effective gesture, especially over long distances.

Discrete Eyestay

New development of the lacing by independent carnations. This concept distributes the tensions, personalizes the support and improves the comfort of the foot tops.

Gel Heel and Front

Attenuates shocks at impact and during pulse, provides total freedom of movement during the stride cycle. The Asics gel system is probably the most famous of the Asics innovations. In order to provide the highest possible shock absorption, Gel units are strategically positioned in the midsole. Different components are used for the Gel Asics cushioning system. Depending on its destination, the gel unit is encapsulated with polyurethane. The form of the units is also precisely linked to their position and action.

Clutch Counter

Exoskeleton heel shell for better heel hold and better ground feel.

FluidRide

Offers the ultimate in rebound and cushioning, while remaining lightweight.

FluidFit

Combines a technical mesh that extends in several directions through an extensible material like to create the effect of a glove. Thus it offers an excellent hold without exerting pressure.

Conclusion

The  Gel in the heel and  at the front  of the foot provides excellent shock absorption and you get a wake cycle without disruption. The midsole FluidRide handles provide arebound optimal and cushioning throughout your place .

The IGS associated with the Guidance Line promotes a more natural movement at the time of impact and your attack phase .

This model offers an excellent cushioning suitable for medium and long distances, it therefore perfectly suits your criteria. In parallel, your supination will pose no problem on this shoe because it is universal and therefore adapts to different stride.

    Hello, I never bought Asics and asked me this model for use in triathlon in long distance (from the semi-marathon / marathon run). Does this shoe have a good compromise cushioned and revived? Thank you

      Hello I appreciate very much the models of the brands Asics. I run regularly with this model as well as the Tri and the 2000. I particularly like their quality, finish, narrowness of foot (viz Mizzuno or Nike), comfort and more technically: cushioning, drop, stability. This model is very good for doing a lot of road and swallowing miles. Despite its weight (350gr) I never had the slightest feeling of having a weight on the feet. Good races!
