Our verdict

A very nice option for a faster paced shoe that isn't super high stack. It's a realistic shoe for serious running. Light and fast and more sensibly priced than many of the new super-shoes.

First impressions

Light, with a bit of spring, this shoe is certainly something different from Brooks. A good, close, snug fit from the upper and a nice 'pop' on toe-off.

Midsole

The DNA Flash midsole is nitrogen infused. This creates a springier feel. It sits between the regular racing shoe feel and the super-soft spring like feel of the new super-shoes. It's light and durable though so will last longer than many.

Upper

Thin, single layer mesh with perforations for breathability. Nice fit and simply design with a stretch like quality.

Sole

Low-profile design with just enough rubber for durability and a little traction. Strictly for the roads.

Conclusion

A good shoe but a somewhat niche product that competes in a now very crowded 'performance trainer' category.For Brooks fans it's a good shoe for faster paced running and will fit in nicely with a rotation of other shoes.

If you want carbon though, look towards the Brooks Hyperion Elite.
