Designed for the modern forward player in the scrum and at the breakdown, generate maximum power with ASICS’ Gel Lethal Tight Five SG Rugby Boots. A solid and stable offering, when you lock horns in the scrum it’s all about power and stability – exactly what the Tight Five brings to the game. With leather draped over the toes, this sits aside synthetics across the upper while a neat touch is that of the Anti Gravel Tongue which has been specially constructed to prevent debris entering the boot. Featuring a Solyte Midsole Material, a lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS’ standard EVA and SpEVA, this brings enhanced cushioning and durability. Another aspect that characterises the Lethal collection is that of the HG10mm, a subtle design which helps prevent injury by positioning the body in a forward position to reduce the load on the Achilles, calf, hamstring and back. With slightly longer metal studs than on your average rugby boot, you can gain extra power, force and stability across soft natural surfaces. Comprising of six removable and two additional moulded ones, this simple design is one favoured by the professionals at the highest level. This ASICS rugby boot weighs 311g (UK 7).
