ASICS HOT KIT: Top Impact Line Leg Balance Tights

Press Release   •   Feb 03, 2010 13:51 GMT

Leading running performance brand ASICS, has launched its Top Impact Line Leg Balance Tights designed for professional athletes, as well as the serious and competitive runner. The Top Impact Line range has been developed by ASICS Institute of Sports Science in close collaboration with several top athletes, to deliver the ultimate functional running apparel collection. The revolutionary range combines different technologies to meet the every demand of the dedicated runner and provide a perfect balance of aesthetics and product function. The Leg Balance Tights are this season’s latest addition.

The Low Down:

The leg balance technology incorporated within the running tight provides extra leg support to stabilise the upper leg and decrease thigh vibrations. This in turn keeps the leg in a better biomechanical position and reduces the onset of fatigue, as well as risk of injury. The balance technology also includes seams on the calf, which divert the stresses from the impact of running that would normally hit the knee. Other features include an added gusset for durability, mesh ventilation for fast action on perspiration and high visibility piping, ensuring this is a great all-round tight for performance.

What the expert says:

‘This is one of the leading performance tights from the Top Impact Collection with technology that will help reduce injuries and soften the impact on the joints. The R&D team at the ASICS Sports Institute of Science in Kobe, Japan, are always striving to produce

the best, most technologically advanced product, and the Leg Balance Tights do not disappoint, ’ says Christian Roberts, UK Product Apparel Manager.
