With the introduction of the Levitate in Fall 2017, runners got a glimpse at the newest midsole technology offered by Brooks, DNA AMP. This ultra responsive TPU-based material offers a smooth, springy ride, but many runners were left wondering what the shoe would feel like if it lost a little weight. Lucky for us, Brooks is introducing the Ricochet, a lighter, more performance-oriented trainer that mixes responsive and adaptive cushioning to create the ultimate running experience during your next tempo run.
To help achieve a race-ready feel, the Ricochet offers a blend of the new DNA AMP cushioning along with classic BioMoGo DNA. This foam combo should retain a highly responsive ride that also delivers versatile cushioning and reduced weight.
On the outsole, an arrow point design similar to the Levitate is used, which should deliver a smooth, flexible transition. Thin rubber placements offer added durability with plenty of traction for the roads.
For a snug wrap with outstanding comfort, the Ricochet provides an all-new Fit Knit upper. The soft material paired with a sock-like heel collar delivers a secure fit that is intended to practically vanish on the foot.
