Win! A pair of ASICS GEL-Solution Speed

Win! A pair of ASICS GEL-Solution Speed

It’s the most lightweight shoe on the market

If lightning quick reactions and speed across the court is all part of your game, the new ASICS GEL-Solution Speed could be for you

Designed specifically for all-court players who move around the court in all directions, the GEL-Solution Speed is lighter than ever, but with improved grip and stability.

We headed down to the ASICS flagship store on Oxford Street to check out the new offering in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

“It’s the most lightweight shoe on the market,” Carl Hagger, ASICS UK Technical Team Manager told tennishead. “The emphasis is on lightweight, but we’ve also improved the grip, stability, balance and durability."

To demonstrate these new and improved features of the ASICS GEL-Solution Speed, we compared it with the 2012 model.

-New improved outsole pattern with pivot points moved further forward for speed players
-Improved flex groove and shorter scoop in the midfoot for increased surface area and increased ground contact

-Wider heel and forefoot offering a more stable platform
-Stiffer and shorter trusstic (plastic bridge under arch of shoe) – increases torque and forefoot flexibility

-New generation of AHAR+ (ASICS High Abrasion Resistance Rubber) new compound in outer sole which makes it more lightweight and more durable

We've got two pairs of the new ASICS GEL-Solution Speed to give away. For your chance to win, simply answer the question below by filling out the form on the right hand side of the page. To check out the full ASICS tennis range, head to
