Brooks has now created a trio of shoes under the performance oriented Hyperion banner. The newest shoe added is the Hyperion Max, a versatile addition that manages daily training, recovery, and even some uptempo running, as well as long miles. The upper is a next generation textile which sheds water, thanks to its tight weave, but also has a comfortable stretch making for an adaptable solution. The tall-ish stack offers a cushy ride (sure, at 34mm it’s not as plush as the 40+mm stacks), the supercritical DNA Flash foam delivering protection and responsiveness simultaneously. The outersole is dense carbon rubber, spaced over the sole selectively to save weight, without compromising durability. Overall, the Hyperion Max is a light, protective, and durable shoe for many miles in your regular rotation.
“Comfortable fit, cushioned and springy ride, nice rolling transition. Ticks the boxes for me.”
