Brooks Catamount: A first run and review
An initial look and run in the new Brooks Catamount. The Catamount weighs in at 9.6 oz for men, 8.5 oz for women. Sits on an efficient 6mm offset with a plush yet responsive ride owed underfoot to DNA Flash, the material used in the Hyperion series road racing models. It uses low profile spacious lugs and TrailTack outsole rubber with a bit of protection via a Ballistic Rock Shield paired w/ the Flash midsole compression. It’s upper is really thin and flexible with a hint of integrity found in medial bands and welded guards. Although we did get a few downpours in the initial testing, we didn’t get to run them through a creek to measure the effectiveness of perforations present in the overlays to allow for drainage. Check out the video for the maiden voyage’s first impressions.
Releases August 1st and retails for $160.
