Earning its moniker from the Sunshine Coast's famous beach break, the Kawana continues to push the boundaries of HOKA foams and geometries. Breaking the mold with a lively new foam that provides solid rebound without packing out, this accessible trainer delivers an incredibly well-balanced ride.
Engineered Recycled Jacquard Mesh Upper
The upper is constructed from recycled jacquard mesh from maximum breathability. Micro perforations allow heat and vapour to escape whilst encoruaging fresh air to flow in and circulate for a pleasant cooling sensation. Lightweight yet resilitent, this upper will help you power through your training in comfort and confidence. A traditional lacing system locks down the foot for maximum control and stability, and a padded tongue provide plush comfort and relieves lace pressure. The anatomical Achilles construction provides excellent support and cushioning.
Early-stage Meta-Rocker geometry is applied in the midsole to increase running efficiency. Meta-Rocker midsole geometry is specifically designed with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole to create a unique fulcrum effect, like a rocking chair to encourage a guided gait cycle. This design supports a runner's natural form while promoting an efficient, smooth roll from initial impact to toe-off. The CMEVA foam provides an ultra responsive, lively feel underfoot, helping you propel yourself forward. This cushioning, rebounding midsole helps protect joints from stress and strain so you keep going mile after mile. The SwallowTail heel geometry and extended crash pad reduce landing impact for a smooth step every time.
The outsole of the Kwaana is made with a durable rubber that forms an ultra-grippy bond with the road surface giving you great power and push off. This durable material holds up to the test of the road over time, allowing you to go further, faster and for longer.
