In Testing

As a big fan of Asics, the Gel Cumulus 25 did not disappoint my expectations. The heel lock is fantastic and the cushioning is superb. I find that it gets a bit warm – in fact, I tend to wear it more during my winter training. It features a lower drop of 8mm, which makes it more versatile for runners like me, who are trying to improve their running technique by landing more on the forefoot. 


I'm very happy with the Cumulus 25. Comfy and smooth, perfect for slow everyday runs. It's also suitable for gym, working and walking.
