  • The outsole of the Asics LyteRacer uses AHAR+ technology . It is a highly resistant rubber developed by the Japanese brand to protect shoes against bitumen abrasion. Thus, the shoe should last longer. In addition, the AHAR rubber provides excellent traction on urban surfaces.
  • In addition, the design of the sole is specially designed to ensure optimal grip in the city.


  • SpEVA technology equips this road shoe along its entire length. This is a foam that is supposed to provide optimal shock absorption when running. According to Asics, it offers 20% more rebound than foams traditionally used in running shoes.
  • On the other hand, the TRUSSTIC technology aims to stabilize the stride for a more natural and efficient run. However, this universal model does not correct excessive pronation or supination of the foot. It is therefore not a stability shoe.
  • Finally, the molded EVA insole completes the cushioning of the shoe. It also displays perforations to better let the foot breathe during exercise.

Upper part (upper)

  • The upper of the Asics LyteRacer results in an open mesh . Light and well ventilated, it offers comfortable and secure foot support.
  • Finally, the suede (suede) reinforcement layers improve foot support and extend the life of the upper by giving it structure.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is the LyteRacer suitable for pronators or supinators?

Scientific research has proven that universal shoes are just as suitable for pronator or supinator runners as stability shoes . So, even though this model is a universal road shoe intended for runners with a neutral stride, it is perfectly suitable for pronators and supinators. For more information, you can consult our article on the subject .

How do Asics LyteRacer shoes fit?

So far, no runners have reported a significant variation in the actual size of this model from the one advertised. You can therefore order your usual size for these shoes.

What is the difference between this model and the Asics DynaFlyte 4?

These two models seem quite similar in terms of configuration (cushioning in particular) but they are in different ranges. Thus, the LyteRacer is an affordable entry/mid-range shoe while the DynaFlyte is a premium model and therefore more expensive. Result: the DynaFlyte is lighter and displays the most advanced technologies of the Japanese brand. This does not mean that the LyteRacer is a bad shoe, quite the contrary! Simply, it offers a simpler configuration. Visit our comparator for a detailed comparison of these two shoes.
