    Launch Season - Brooks Hyperion 2

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III


    We run in a day and age where – bear with me now – less is more AND more is more. By "less is more" I mean each shoe we walk, jog, run, and race in requires reduced weight in the midsole foam and outsole rubber and lighter uppers in the knit, woven, or engineered mesh. Brands have even incorporated weight lowering technologies in the laces? I mean, have you ever weighed a shoelace? It's nothing, right? Well, nothing weighs a lot "less" these days.


    By "more is more" I mean the options we have at our disposal to accomplish our running and racing goals. I'm currently incorporating a daily trainer, an LSD (long slow distance) shoe, a shoe for speed work, and a capital 'S'uper shoe for race day. Oh, my rotation shelf now needs "more" room for my slides and mules for recovery




    Sometimes, do you crave a Swiss Army Knife? A jack of all trades? A one–stop shop? That's what we get with the new Brooks Hyperion 2. It's super light and packs a serious cushioning package. On your feet, it's perfect for whatever gym workout you throw its way and nearly 10% more responsive than before to help you run fast. The upper is breathable for a variety of performance platforms (run, gym) and sleeker for improved fit and breathability. 


    This is your race day shoe when you don't want a carbon option. Your lightweight tempo shoe when speed is the ultimate goal. Your weekend long run shoe as that half or full marathon inches closer. Your daily run with your local run club shoe. Your run to the gym, workout, run home shoe. Your everything.


    The Tech Talk:


    Lightweight and designed for peak performance, the Brooks Hyperion 2 offers exceptional speed and comfort with nitrogen–infused cushioning that boosts your run with explosive, all–distance propulsion. 



    Product Features:


    The upper, crafted from a lightweight, breathable knit, delivers stretchy, shape–retaining support as you move.


    Lace–up style ensures a secure fit.


    Featuring DNA FLASH v2 technology, this shoe provides 10% more energy return than previous models. 


    The nitrogen–infused cushioning ensures a springy rebound while keeping the weight to a minimum. 


    Transforms impact absorption into propulsive energy using ultralightweight cushioning.


    The RoadTack rubber offers lightweight traction in high–contact areas of the sole.

    Midsole height – 26mm : 18mm


    Heel–To–Toe Drop – 8mm


    Perfect for runners seeking dynamic energy return and maximum speed without sacrificing performance due to excess weight.


    The Finish Line:


    The Brooks Hyperion 2 is here NOW. I previously talked about the Paris Olympics–inspired Hyperion Max 2, but I'm really loving this color aesthetic, so I'm not rocking the boat. It goes with "everything", and that's the theme here. Continue your online visit to pick up a pair.....or come see us at one of our four locations below!
