Don’t fix what’s not broken, right? The Wave Rider 19 epitomises this. Building on the success of the 18, there has been only a few small tweaks to improve the underfoot feeling and a new mesh for a plusher feel around the foot.
AP+ – AP+ offers increased rebound and a “bouncier” feeling, which extends the cushion durabilty while maintaining a lightweight performance.
G3 – Outsole provides superior grip with less weight. G3-DR provides added durability in key contact points.
Smooth Ride – Engineering approach to minimalize the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible.
R Touch – New, lightweight cushioning compound found in the heel. With high resiliency and quick bounce back, SR Touch improves on Mizuno’s signature smooth ride.
U4ic – The next evolution in midsole compounds, U4ic (pronounced ‘eurphoric’) offers the lightest, plushest and smoothest ride Mizuno has ever created.
Mizuno Wave – The leading footwear technology that combines cushioning and stabilty, two distinctively different elements at are both inherently necessary in great running shoes.
X10 – The most durable carbon rubber that allows for longer for longer wear in high impact areas and supplements traction at heel strike.
