The eight edition of the award-winning Gel Challenger from Asics is packed full of state-of-the-art technology in a classic tennis shoe for men.
Rearfoot and forefoot Gel provide excellent cushioning and impact shock absorption, while Asics’ DuoMax System in the midsole provides lateral stability.
T-Truss technology, an extended version of their renowned lateral Trusstic system, offers additional support in the heel, especially when attempting a jumping forehand stroke or sharp turn.
A new P-Guard upper features an abrasion-resistant synthetic material which increases durability and gives protection to the medial side metatarsal region, reducing the risk of toe injuries.
AHAR + high-abrasion rubber is placed on heavy contact areas of the outsole to reduce excessive wear, and PHF heel construction guarantees a perfect fit around the heel.
A Solyte midsole provides a spongy layer between the sole and the upper, which helps absorb shock and gives added cushioning. Lighter than SpEVA and EVA, Solyte promises enhanced durability, while the non-marking outsole makes the Challenger 8 ideal for all court sports.
