Summary

The Hyperion Tempo is a brand new shoe in the Brooks Speed range, designed for faster training runs and tempo runs. It was designed in partnership with Brooks fastest pro athletes to maximise the effects of your training runs.

All elements on the Hyperion Tempo are designed to keep the weight down, from the featherlight, breathable woven mesh upper, to the DNA Flash midsole offering lightweight cushioning and adaptive energy return. The soft midsole cushions the impact on the lower body joints meaning runners require less recovery time and can maximise training efficiency.

Where this shoe differs from others is Brooks' range is the nitrogen infused midsole. Building on their BioMoGo DNA midsole, the new DNA Flash gives a more dynamic response and a real pop on your run! It's also a more environmentally friendly option to boot.

The outsole has strategically placed rubber to protect the midsole but keep weight down, which will be a huge hit if you're a fan of a lightweight shoe.

Who is it for?

The Hyperion Tempo is recommended for runners looking for a training shoe for tempo runs (hence the name) who are willing to spend a little more for premium, technologies in a lightweight shoe. It will see you through training, giving impact cushioning to protect the joints, and will also be suitable to complete your half, or even full marathon in should you wish.
