Reliable traction with protective cushioning, the Cascadia series has become known by the trail running community as a versatile training option when taking on a variety of terrain. Now on its 12th installment, the Cascadia sees small improvements in flexibility and comfort while still providing a similar running experience to previous versions.

In order to maintain the classic Cascadia cushioning, the 12th version utilizes a BioMoGo DNA midsole paired with a Ballistic rock shield. This platform offers a high level of protection from rocks and debris while also providing an adaptive cushioning experience. A pivot post system continues to be used to provide a stable ride on the trails while an added pivot point near the first metatarsal helps improve flexibility and toe off.

Other small changes to the Cascadia 12 can be seen on the outsole and upper. A redesigned lug configuration should improve traction while small material and overlay changes should further improve comfort and durability.
