SummaryThe Hyperion Elite 2 is the most premium and fastest running shoe in Brooks' road racing line up. Packed with technology and improvements, it is designed with feedback from world class athletes to get you that marathon personal best time. The Hyperion Elite 2 sits amongst the ranks of the Saucony Endorphin Pro, Nike Vaporfly and Alphafly, Sketchers Speed Elite, and New Balance Fuelcell TC when it comes to running shoes designed to get you on the marathon podium.
The upper remains the same from the Hyperion Elite, but there have been vast improvements in the midsole, including new foam and an increased stack height, which has translated fantastically into improved running performance.
The new DNA Flash midsole and carbon fibre propulsion plate gives a perfect harmony of cushioning and energy return to run faster and for longer. Rapid Roll midsole technology offers a fast and efficient turnover. The midsole extends medially and laterally to give a wide base for added stability.
The outsole remains light by placing only strategic rubber in high abrasion areas, which places a question mark over the durability of the shoe, or performance on a wet or slippy road.
A stretch woven mesh upper, and minimal padding assist in keeping weight down. The upper contains many lace eyelets, and specially designed laces which stay put during a run and give good lock down to the foot.
