I have already tested and reviewed two version of the Fujitrabico Lyte (read here). There is no secret that this model is really on point for trail and mountain running, and needs only very few adjustment.
Most of the feedback I had from the earlier version are still valid, but the Fuji Lyte 2 has the addition of extra cushioning in the sole and more stability.
The sole is based on the Flyte Foam technology that Asics has developed. There is no doubt that this provides extra comfort and cushioning, but what surprise is that it does not affect at all the response of the shoe and the running feeling. Although the landing on gravel feels smoother, the sensation you get with the terrain remain great. Also the response is optimal, making the shoe very efficient on harder trails or asphalt part that might occur during a long run or a race.
The upper mesh is still of light material, but with extra protection in the front and with stronger and more elastic textile around the lace. The room for the toes is also slightly wider. Those adjustments make the shoe more stable around the feet also in technical downhills and challenging conditions. As mentioned earlier, I do choose the Fujitrabuco Pro for fast technical downhill because of the tighter fit and stiffness, but the new Lyte gets very close to them.
The grip is, as the previous version, excellent in all conditions. I recently use the Lyte to run Sans Senja (25km and 2600m climb of very various and extremly technical terrain) and I could not have choose a better shoe.
No less the colour and the style are great. Enjoy!

Shorts are a way of lifeby Marco Anelli / Jul. 24, 2020
Everyone who knows me won't ask a detailed review of a pair of long tights or warm jacket. I rarely use more than a long sleeve t-shirt in winter (except in the mountains), especially when running with a backpack to work. Long tights are perfect for skiing...otherwise I use shorts all the year long. But there, I like to call me an expert! :) Asics offers a pair of shorts for each occasion.
DS Trainer 25 - One step back to move faster forwardby Marco Anelli / May. 25, 2020
DS Trainer has been one of the most successfull model for Asics for many years. The innovation continues with the DS Trainer 25. Following the improvement introduced with the DS Trainer 24, but with slightly more response like the 23. Indeed a great mix of the best features to run even faster.
Lightness, grip and stability in one model: Fujitrabuco Lyteby Marco Anelli / Feb. 06, 2020
Almost a year ago Asics launched the Fujitrabuco Pro, a lighter and more aggressive model of the traditional Fujitrabuco. Now an even lighter model is on the market, the Fujitrabuco Lyte. I could test the shoe for a few winter runs and here you can find some feedback.
