INTRODUCTION

The Ascend 8 is a moderate feature, minimum support trail shoe designed for daily training and high mileage. 

CUSHIONING

  • Mizuno Wave consists of an elastic, thermal plastic wave running from the heel to the midfoot, creating an incredibly springy and well-cushioned ride.

MIDSOLE

  • AP+ is is Mizuno's top of-the-line, full-length copolymer midsole for a lighter, more resilient ride.
  • Smooth Ride is a gender specific network of grooves that minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel to toe ride.
  • Extended Wave Plate in the midfoot is an extension of the Mizuno Wave for increased torsional rigidity between the heel and forefoot.

UPPER

  • AIRmesh covers the entire upper and provides breathability to keep the foot cool.
  • Active X Upper offers lateral support and a secure fit.
  • Dynamotion Fit creates optimal fit with stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
  • Asymmetrical Lacing Design better follows the shape of the foot for an improved fit.
  • Standard Sockliner provides underfoot comfort.

OUTSOLE

  • Active X Outsole features X-shaped lugs for multi-directional traction on a variety of trail surfaces.
  • X10 located in the heel and forefoot is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
  • Wet Traction is a bi-directional trail specific outsole that provides increased grip in all conditions.
