Guide Rails

Guide Rails

What is it?

Guide Rails are built into the footwear midsole and revolutionize traditional stability technology found in running shoes. Delivering on-demand support, Guide Rails allow your hips, knees and joints to move within their unique motion path while you run – all without traditional posts.

This innovative new form of stability doesn't "correct" your stride. Instead it assists your body in finding its natural path, or Stride Signature.

How does it work?

A good way to think about how Guide Rails work is to picture a bobsled track. As the bobsled rockets down the icy course, the crew works to guide it down the "line" – the ideal path through the course. The fastest times are achieved when the sled glides effortlessly down the course with limited side-to-side movement.

Now, let’s apply this to the runner.

Much like the bobsled, runners perform best when they stay within their personal "line" – what we like to call their Natural Habitual Joint Motion. Guide Rails are designed to do just this – help runners maintain the most efficient and natural motion throughout the run.

Ideal Pressure Zones

Ideal Pressure Zones

What is it?

Ideal Pressure Zones distribute pressure evenly under your foot, transforming your run into a more comfortable and effortless ride from heel to forefoot.

How does it work?

When we take a step back to examine how runners run, we recognize that the highest amount of impact happens as you propel yourself forward. Knowing that this is the moment of highest impact, we’ve reshaped the outsole to disperse pressure evenly throughout your whole foot -- from heel to mid-foot to forefoot.

This means that impact is no longer felt in just one area of the foot which could cause “hot spots” (places that rub or cause pain throughout the run) but is instead dispersed evenly across the entire foot, leading to a smoother, float-like transition as you glide through your run.

Ideal Pressure Zones work in conjunction with our other shoe technologies to help runners maintain their most efficient and natural motion throughout the run.

Rounded Heel

Rounded Heel

What is it?

“Rounded Heel” is just a fancy name that we like to use for the rounded and reduced heel on our shoes. The slight curvature in the heel vastly improves the alignment of your body, encouraging a more efficient stride.

How does it work?

It’s really quite simple. The curvature in the heel works to align the body by shifting the contact point forward. As you hit the ground there is a greater clearance distance under the middle of your heel, which aligns force through the center of your ankle, thus reducing internal stress on your body.

Super DNA

Super DNA

What is it?

An adaptable midsole material that combines plushness with adaptability and provides 25% more cushioning than BioMoGo DNA.

Traditional cushioning takes a one-size-fits-all approach, but we know that each runner is different. Super DNA was developed to continuously tailor the level of cushioning to your specific needs – even as they change during the run.

How does it work?

Super DNA is made up of a highly viscous non-Newtonian material or more simply put, a material that adapts to the specific force you apply to it. Part of the brilliance is that this compound was engineered to perform at the molecular level (picture millions of resilient 'nanosprings').

If you looked at Super DNA through a microscope, you’d see that it's made up of individual molecules connected in strands. These strands (which form chains) react to the amount of force placed on the foot, dispersing pressure and providing resiliency. Bottom line of this physics lesson: You get tailored cushioning that reacts to your specific weight, pace, gait, movement and running environment – "made-for-me" cushioning vs. "one size fits all."

And, as with all good technology, we’ve taken it a step further:

  • Super DNA is our latest stop on the DNA journey. Introduced with the Transcend and now found in the Glycerin, Super DNA combines the adaptability of DNA and adds 25% more cushioning than BioMoGo DNA while still maintaining the same energy return and biodegradable properties. Essentially you get the best of both worlds – adaptability and ultimate cushioning.

Other benefits include:

  • Significantly more cushioning than standard midsole materials
  • Increased energy-return for more pep in your step
  • Great performance no matter your weight or running pace
  • Smoother transition from heel to toe

    Too small.

    2017/04/14 | Richmond, VA |

    Brooks are my go to shoe. I have worn each Ravenna style for the last 5 years and had no real issues with sizing. Thought that I would try a different style and found the length to be too small. Disappointing. Had to return.

    Unreliable

    2017/04/02 | Lancaster, PA |

    I bought these shoes for my upcoming track season. I ran nearly every day and the first couple weeks that I used them they felt great, and I really liked them. After less than a month though, I noticed the side was tearing. These shoes fit me so the size is not an issue but after less than 100 miles they already began to tear. Small holes formed near my pinky toe and expanded from there. I am returning these shoes and am very disappointed with their quality

    Great cushioning!

    2017/03/28 | Austin, TX |

    A little tighter than I was expecting at first but after a few runs they're fitting better. They also make my feet too hot. But, they're definitely the most cushioned shoe I've ever worn. It's a firm cushion feel and not a squishy cushion which is excellent. I wore glycerines for 5+ versions but Brooks made it a completely neutral shoe without much support at all several models ago. The finally decided to try these and I'm very glad I did. They're a little heavy but I feel the extra weight is worth the extra cushion and support. The shoe definitely lives up to what you expect from the intended design.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Great shoe. Amazing support. Used for work. Perfect.

    2017/03/24 | New Orleans, LA |

    I have several pairs of this model in different colors. I wear for work and a separate for everyday fun. For work I was only able to use this about 3 months before the guide rails broke down.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Great shoe not happy about early wear

    2017/03/14 | Africa deployed military |

    Would of given 5 stars but after one two mile run the rubber on the bottom of one shoe was already coming off. I am currently deployed military and was not able to return them as I needed a shoe quickly to replace my worn out brooks I already had.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Not for me

    2017/02/26 | Cleveland, OH |

    I've owned the first 3 generations of the Transcend. I was iffy on the first gen. The 2nd gen was outstanding. I was excited when I took the 3rd generation out of the box. First impression was they looked great. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. Unfortunately for me this generation just didn't agree with me as the second generation did. They didn't feel as roomy or as plush and the arch support seemed to be more noticeable, especially on long runs.
