The new Wave Rider 18 brings with it the ideal balance of fit and performance for runners seeking a smooth ride in a sleek and lightweight daily trainer. Billed as Mizuno’s best Wave Rider yet, the 18 provides runners with a more resilient and responsive ride and a superb underfoot sensation, creating a more harmonious fit that works with the runner at every stride.
The Wave Rider 18 has a refined toe-spring delivers a smooth, effortless toe-off, an upgraded premium sock liner that provides more rebound and resiliency at every foot strike and a new outsole design with added durability and shock attenuation.
The 18 also utilises Mizuno’s new SR Touch, a new advanced cushioning material that is lighter and absorbs shock with its fast rebound properties, which works together with its full-length parallel Wave and U4ic (pronounced ‘euphoric’) midsole compound.
With its Dynamotion Fit system, which uses the latest motion capture and biomechanics technology, Mizuno has developed a design blueprint to engineer shoes that work with the gait cycle. SmoothRide also creates a unique approach to the sole of the shoe, which is designed to create a smooth, rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe on every step.
Also featured in the Wave Rider 18 is Mizuno’s Intercool and AirMesh technologies, which give superior breathability and ventilation, keeping the foot cool and dry at all times. Mizuno Intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe, by incorporating a full-length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels.
The latest X-10 outsole on the Wave Rider 18 provides the most durable carbon rubber from Mizuno that allows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at heel strike.
