Ballistic Rock Shield : The shield is composed of a thermoplastic EVA sheath and placed under the forefoot to protect against stone bruising.

BioMogo® : Is the world’s first fully biodegradable midsole foam for footwear. Once a pair of Brooks shoes with BioMoGo has reached an enclosed landfill, it will begin to biodegrade. In roughly 20 years the midsoles will be completely converted by common soil microbes into useful humus and nutrients. That’s about 50 times faster than a standard midsole degradation.

Element™ : A microfiber construction that provides strong protection against the elements in a light and quiet fabric. Element™ maintains full breathability and durable comfort.

HydroFlow® : Liquid silicon-based system cushioning system chamber dampens shock at impact and dynamically disperses fluid at a controlled rate around the heel cushioning, stabilizing and rebounding on every stride.

Mogo® : Offers 40 percent more cushioning and gives a runner 22 percent more return of energy - the "spring" in one's step - than Brooks' former midsole. Substance 257. MoGo not only represents a giant leap forward in midsole material performance for Brooks, it also entails an evolved method of production. Compression Molded Preform (CMP) is an efficient, precise production process in which, rather than being cut out of large sheets of material in the traditional method, midsoles are cast in individual molds, resulting in 50% less waste. The CMP process also increases consistency by an incredible 200%. Less variability between midsoles ensures that runners can count on enjoying the same feel pair after pair.

Pivot Posts : Medial posting shaped to adapt varied terrain surfaces, which helps keeps the shoe from toppling over.

Pod Tec® : Podular Technology : Midsole/Outsole a configurations system in the mid/out sole to enables the shoe to bend and flex.
