The run is more mental than you know

Designed to Flow

Flow is one of the most memorable experiences a runner will ever know—moving harmoniously and almost effortlessly. The GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoe helps you with proven technologies and enhancements that cushion, support and protect you through the miles—and the years.

It’s not the strongest legs

The Mind

is what prevents runners from the full use of their physical capacity. By challenging runners to perform as well as they can, in two very different mental conditions, we will demonstrate how important it is to build our mental strength as well as physical to reach our goals in fitness – and life.

THE EXPERIMENT

Athletes race on the track under normal conditions then later re-run the same track in near darkness — no music, no scenery, and no finish line. The 150-metre-long ‘Blackout Track’ its cloaked in darkness and devoid of distractions — with the GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoe being the only technology to assist them. They’re now free to clear their minds and focus on one thing and one thing only: flow.

LEADER IN CUSHIONING

Strategically placed rearfoot and forefoot GEL™ technology inserts reduce the shock of each heel strike add cushioning to the toe-off phase of the stride.
