If you want to elevate your trail-running experience to a new level in 2021, then our recently-launched GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 trail shoe is for you. The ASICSGRIP™ rubber provides incredible stability especially on wet surfaces whilst not compromising on comfort.

The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 shoe has been re-engineered from top to bottom to  assert itself as an all-around trail pioneer. Rugged and comfortable are the two terms that best describe this trail running shoe. It's for the  off-road runner seeking excellent durability, protection, and grip.  


After reimagining the shoe’s upper, this version weighs in at  approximately one ounce (30gm) less than its predecessor. The advanced  comfort comes from the FLYTEFOAM® midsole material that's coupled with GEL® technology cushioning in the heel. Equipped with a DUOMAX® support  system that creates a more stable ride, this placement of foam on the medial side of the midsole offers a firmer density that keeps the foot from rotating inward too much (overpronation). 

Our man Matt Healy has been putting in some major trail mileage in the Trabuco 9 ahead of his first big challenge of 2021. 

“The Trabuco 9 offers the perfect amount of stability and comfort all in one ride," says Matt. "The new ASICS Grip technology has given me a lot more confidence on the trails, and with a very durable upper I’m looking forward to clocking in plenty of mileage in the mountains.”


The lugged outsole pattern features ASICSGRIP™ rubber while incorporating an uphill and downhill lug pattern on the lateral and medial side of the shoe to improve traction on slippery terrain. Additionally a rock protection plate helps the outsole stay flexible and shield the foot from abrupt terrain or trail debris. The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 shoe is designed to help you fly through the trails with advanced traction both uphill and downhill, while the responsive midsole foam creates better propulsion throughout your off-road recon.
