GEL-Cumulus 25 ($140), GEL-Nimbus 25 ($160), Superblast ($220), and Novablast 3 ($140)
In the video ,I compare ASICS 2023 max cushion trainers covering all the stats, upper, fit and comparative rides. All have modern geometries and foam with greatly increased stack heights over prior versions (Nimbus and Cumulus) at comparatively light weights. Each while similar in many ways each is distinctly different in ride characteristic and potential run training uses.

These days he runs halves in the just sub 1:40 range if he gets lucky,, training 30-40 miles per week mostly at moderate paces on the roads and trails of New Hampshire and Utah be it on the run or nordic skis. He is 5’9” tall and weighs about 164 lbs, if he is not enjoying too many fine New England IPA’s.
