Brooks, an expert in performance running, adds new trail gear to its collection. The new collection includes the new Cascadia 17, featuring the all-new Trail Adapt System.
The split forefoot mimics the hoof of a mountain goat to allow for grip on uneven surfaces.
The integration of the midsole, Ballistic Rock Shield, and zonal outsole system optimises adaptability and delivers stability on all types of terrain. Independently, the pods compress to steady the shoe when runners hit a rock or rough terrain. Additionally, the High Point collection is extended with short- and long sleeve, waterproof pants and a waterproof jacket. Together, all features and fabrics provide control, grip, and protection on the trail for any runner to become an animal on the trail.
Explore more as you confidently traverse any terrain
Runners can explore trails with confidence thanks to the new Cascadia 17. The shoe is supported by the Trail Adapt System: this technology provides stability and smooth transitions no matter the terrain, through an integrated midsole, rock plate and outsole. ‘’Inspired by a mountain goat hoof, the outsole features zonal pods that are configured for stability. Between the outsole and midsole, the Ballistic Rock Shield is placed, a toughened, thermoplastic EVA sheath – that protects the forefoot from sharp objects. On the outsole, six independent zonal pods individually compress over varying terrain, creating more surface area traction – like a tank with adaptable off-road suspension. Each part works to absorb shock to create a smooth ride”, says Brice Newton, Director, Global Footwear Merchandising.
For those with an insatiable hunger for adventure, DNA LOFT offers soft cushioning on tough terrain so runners can go further and climb higher. The Cascadia 17 is also available in GTX, where runners’ feet stay dry thanks to a new lightweight GORE-TEX® Invisible Fit
Cascadia 17 is available online at www.brooksrunning.com/en_gb and at retailers worldwide for £135 GBP.
Trail time is special time
New for this season, Brooks introduces the High Point Short Sleeve and Long Sleeve, as well as the High Point Waterproof Pants and Waterproof Jacket. The High Point Collection offers apparel designed with the unique needs of trail runners in mind: protection, mobility, and storage. Runners can complete their trail preparation with short and long layers featuring a merino wool blend to regulate the body’s temperature. With its thermoregulation, it will keep the wearer warm in the rain, but will also help them wick sweat and keep you dry in the summer.
Brooks also launches the lightweighted and breathable rated waterproof pants and waterproof jacket with DriLayer Seal fabric. Thanks to its fabrics, which let the heat out without letting the elements in, a little storm won’t stop runners in their tracks. The High Point Collection keeps their trail time distraction-free so runners can get the most out of it.
The High Point apparel collection launches 1st August and will be available online at www.brooksrunning.com/en_gb and at retailers worldwide.
