The outsole of the Asics Gel Scram 6 features sturdy rubber to optimize the lifespan of the shoe. It’s naturally adherent to provide a good grip on trail surfaces at all times.
Reversed lugs increase the grip on natural terrains to easily handle the most challenging conditions. Those rubber parts are shallow with a reversed design.
AmpliFoam equips the midsole. It’s a soft and yet dense foam compound to be more resilient (it doesn’t collapse easily over time). It allows a plush and adaptive ride.
The upper of the Asics Gel Scram 6 is an engineered mesh that promotes a comfortable and secure foot lockdown.
Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Is the Asics Gel Scram 6 true to size?
Yes, this shoe fits true to size, according to the athletes who tried it. Therefore, you can order your usual size for trail running shoes. Nonetheless, if this your first pair of Asics shoes, it’s better to give them a try in-store to avoid surprises.
I'm a heavyweight athlete (187 lbs/85 kg or more). Is the Asics Gel Scram 6 recommended for me?
Yes, this shoe should be adapted even if you’re a heavyweight runner. Indeed, it features a moderately thick sole suitable for everyone. As a reminder, only minimalist shoes are to be avoided if you weigh more than 157 lbs/71 kg.
Is the Asics Gel Scram 6 a good choice to run an ultramarathon?
This model is quite versatile overall and can be used for short to long distances. However, its lugs are shallow, making the Gel Scram primarily intended for trails with an easy-medium difficulty level. Ultramarathon races often feature various terrains, and some of them can be quite technical and prove to be too much for the Scram’s configuration.
Is this shoe waterproof?
This shoe uses water-repellent materials but doesn’t boast a waterproof membrane such as Gore-Tex. It means that your feet will be protected in easy conditions such as light rain. Beyond that, your feet may get wet. However, such shoes have the advantage of generally being lighter, cheaper, and more breathable than GTX models.
