Brooks say it's designed to go fast and far. While both together may be a stretch for many runners, there's no reason why you should do either in great comfort with this shoe. 

The dazzeling white upper is purposely chosen to reveal the story of your adventures and it will do so very quickly, but get them dirty as soon as possible and you won't be concentrating on keeping them clean and you'll simply enjoy the ride.

Our verdict

Light, fast and responsive, the shoe feels more road racer than trail warrior, but it's the better shoe for it. It tackles rough ground easily and essentially makes light work or the trails. The DNA Flash midsole is softer and smooth feeling than any trail shoe cushioning out there and with a rock guard and rugged outsole really can go anywhere with ease and comfort.

  • Positive
  • Light DNA Flash cushioning
  • Smooth and responsive ride for a trail shoe
  • Flexible, road racer feel
  • Negative
  • White upper for a trail shoe - really?!

First impressions

A brand new shoe in Brooks lineup, the Catamount is now the lightest and fastest shoe in their trail collection. 

Featuring Brooks's new nitrogen-infused midsole, this shoe offers ultralight cushioning and a springy ride for the runner focused on going fast. Thanks to the tough traction and rugged underfoot protection, you can have the confidence to take on any terrain.

If you're looking to push your limits and add some speed to your trail runs, add the Brooks Catamount to your collection.

Midsole

The Nitrogen infused DNA FLash midsole provides a light, cushioned ride with a nice level of responsive and feedback from the trail. It worked well in the Hyperion Tempo road shoe, but here it possibly works a little better. On the rougher ground of the trails it managers to absorb the impact a little better and feel smoother and even more adaptable. 

Upper

A simple, lightweight mesh with rubberised overlays for protection and durability that's made with the same high level of construction we'd expect from the brand. It fits around the foot well feeling protective without the usual bulk associated with many trail shoes.

The bright white colourway was chosen to highlight the story of your off-road adventures and it ceretainly does that!

Sole

A rock guard and sticky rubber outsole provide good protection on any surface and the evenly spread studs are a nice depth to see you tackle mud as easily and firmer ground and even the occasional stretch of road.

Conclusion

A new sub catagory of trail shoe has been created, fast and far and theres no readon why this shouldn't do both. It feels comfortable enough to go long and light enough to go fast; combining the two is up to you!

It's well-made and coming from a road shoe brand ha that comfort factor often ot found in pure off-road manufacturers, where their shoes tend to hacve a clunky, more rugged feel. 

Step in comort is great and remains so after many miles on the trails.
