ASICS launched the FlyteFoam® Fast Series to international guests with a spectacular sprint at the top of Tower Bridge, one of London’s most iconic landmarks.
The ASICS FlyteFoam® Fast Series is a brand-new collection of special speed running shoes featuring the innovative FlyteFoam midsole material, including the new NOOSA FF™, GEL-DS TRAINER™ 22 and a colour-updated DynaFlyte™.
Transforming the two panoramic high-level glass walkways in Tower Bridge, ASICS created an immersive experience that pushed runners to smash their own speed record on a specially designed flight path.
ASICS flight attendants were on hand to prep the runners in the take-off zone ahead of their FlytePath experience. An aviation themed sprint, including wind machines, sequenced lights and sound effects created the ultimate speed experience, encouraging guests to not just run, but to fly.
Special guests on the night were Springbok Sevens player, ASICS ambassador and Olympic Gold Medalist Kyle Brown, elite ASICS athlete Jan Frodeno, Olympic gold medalist and two-time Ironman World Champion and American track and field athlete, Candace Hill. ASICS South Africa's FrontRunner Charmaine Mohokare also attended the event.
