The DEFYANCE 4 is a neutral shoe, but it has the same perfect fit as the top seller ADRENALINE GTS. It is flexible in the forefoot, and provides the necessary support in the heel and metatarsus, exactly where the keen runner needs it. The DEFYANCE damps optimally with the eco-friendly midsole BioMoGo. Different to its predecessor model, the latest version has the Caterpillar Crashpad, which provides a flowing transition from the initial contact in the heel of the foot right through to the press-down phase and take off from the toes. The upper is strengthened in the middle and guarantees more stability. In the neutral area, the Defyance has a varied range of applications and adapts itself to a large number of runners' feet through its significant fit.more

The DEFYANCE 4 is a neutral shoe, but it has the same perfect fit as the top seller ADRENALINE GTS.
It is flexible in the forefoot, and provides the necessary support in the heel and metatarsus, exactly where the keen runner needs it. The DEFYANCE damps optimally with the eco-friendly midsole BioMoGo. Different to its predecessor model, the latest version has the Caterpillar Crashpad, which provides a flowing transition from the initial contact in the heel of the foot right through to the press-down phase and take off from the toes. The upper is strengthened in the middle and guarantees more stability. In the neutral area, the Defyance has a varied range of applications and adapts itself to a large number of runners' feet through its significant fit.

  • Element - mesh upper technology facilitates ventilation and vapor transfer.
  • HPR PLUS - a higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer.
  • Pod Tech - A system of 'pods' in the midsole and outsole enabling the shoe to bend and flex more naturally while still supporting the foot at its most critical points.
  • Rear and forefoot Hydroflow provides excellent cushioning and shock absorption.
  • BIOMOGO - Brooks introduces the first-ever biodegradable running shoe midsole
  • Signature PDRB triple-density post on the medial side of the shoe for industry-leading stability.
  • DRB Accel A shank-like thermoplastic device provides torsional rigidity to the midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently.


What is HYDROFLOW?
HydroFlow® is a system of chambers sitting under the heel area of the midsole. The contained silicone-oil compound dampens the impact of the foot on the ground and offers optimal shock absorbtion and comfort. HydroFlow® is used in all Brooks shoes.

MOGO

The midsole with unique dampening properties. Good fit, comfort and long-lasting cushioning! The ground breaking midsole material MoGo is loved by all runners.

How does MoGo work?

The new midsole material MoGo is an ingenious polymer structure that is more durable than EVA material, it offers a softer, more flexible running experience.

Mogodiagram.jpg



Brooks2.jpg

BIOMOGO

The bio-degradable unique midsole

As always, Brooks is a step ahead in innovative products. BioMoGo, the first fully bio-degradable midsole, sticks to the promise of the brand: BROOKS RUNS GREEN.


Dna.jpg

DNA

BROOKS DNA Always offers a perfect balance between shock absorption and energy feedback. The material itself is less of a solid more of an highly viscous liquid that behaves like millions of small elastic springs on a much smaller molecular level. The ground-breaking BROOKS DNA shock absorption technology immediately adjusts to the specific biomechanics, speed and weight of every runner.

BROOKS have thoroughly analysed a large number of runners and running styles in order to develop the special form of the DNA-elements. This way BROOKS found out where the pressure load of the sole is the greatest, and integrated the DNA -elements at these very spots.


Hydro.jpg

Hydroflow

HydroFlow - the very established cushioning system from Brooks

HydroFlow is a system of chambers sitting under the heel area of the midsole. The contained silicone-oil compound dampens the impact of the ground on the foot and offers optimal shock absorbtion and comfort. HydroFlow is used in all Brooks shoes.

How does Hydroflow work?

When pressure is applied to the central chamber, the liquid is displaced into the outer ducts. The central chamber decreases in volume accordingly and thereby dampens the impact. As the pressure on the chamber is decreased, the liquids retract back into it and are charged again for the next impact.


Hpr1.jpg

HPR

HPR High Performance Rubber

HPR is an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that has higher durability and wears longer.


Hpr2.jpg


Hpr3.jpg

HPR GREEN

These midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering exceptional flexibility and an unrestricted forefoot ride.


Drb.jpg

DRB

DRB Diagonal Rollbar

A high density post at the medial arch is engineered for pronation control and creates a smoother transition from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase.

Drb3.jpg


Pdrb.jpg

PDRB

PDRB - Progressive Diagonal Rollbar

PDRB - Our dual density post is biomechanically engineered to allow for progressive pronation control and creates a smoother transition from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase.

Pdrb2.jpg


Pivot.jpg

PIVOT

Pivot - The stability element for uneven surfaces

The Pivot-Technology reduces the danger of losing contact with the surface on uneven ground.

How does Pivot work?

The two Pivot-posts in the sole are constructed to work separately, maintaining the parts of the shoe that are not in contact with the unevenness to maintain full contact with the surface. In such a situation, Pivot™ maintains optimal traction.

Pivot2.jpg


Accel2.jpg

DRB Accel

DRB Accel

A shank-like thermoplastic device provides torsional rigidity to the midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently.


Podtech.jpg

Podtech

PodTech - Podular Technology

PodTech: midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering exceptional flexibility and an unrestricted forefoot ride.


Element1.jpg

Element

Element is an upper technology featuring superior microfibre construction to provide weather protection in a light, supple and quiet fabric that doesn’t sacrifice breathability, durability and comfort

BRS1.jpg

BRS - Ballistic Rock Shield

The BRS system has been introduced to reduce the point load pressure from stones, branches etc. A ballistic textile in the forefoot disperses this pressure, while still keeping the forefoot flexible for a terrain compliant ride.

Regular soles pass the pressure almost uncushioned straight through to the foot.

Brooks® Ballistic Rock Shield has been designed to disperse the energy on to a much larger area, causing the forefoot far less agitation.

BRS4.jpg


Cushsole.jpg

S-257 Cushsole

A durable, energy-efficient midsole compound used as an insole board for even more cushioning and flexibility.


E-fusion.jpg

e-Fusion

This midsole compound works in conjunction with HydroFlow and BioMoGo to progressively dampen the forces of energy that occur during the contact phase. It also increases the resilience under the midfoot, resulting in a more powerful propulsion.
