TRC Technical Update | Brooks Cascadia 16
Cushioning, traction & protection. The Brooks road range is known for their quality materials and design that optimise comfort and durability.
Their trail range carries these origins with some additional features that provide traction and protection when venturing off road. The generous dose of DNA LOFT cushioning (found in shoes such as the Glycerin & Adrenaline) provide a plush and familiar feel underfoot which is coupled with an aggressive lug formation on the outsole for traction on technical trails, alongside a ballistic rock plate for protection on exposed trails. Relative to its Brooks trail colleague the Caldera, expect more responsiveness to help you navigate more technical trails.
If you're currently in a Brooks volume trainer, love the feel and want some increased traction and protection for your off road adventures, we'd recommend trying on the Cascadia 16!
