The Ricochet 3 delivers a good combination of comfort and cushioning. Light but well cushioned, the shoe can be used for everyday mileage as well as for faster paced running making it extremely versatile.
The Brooks Ricochet 3 is a good looking, no nonsense lightweight everyday training shoe which features a combination of the brand's BioMoGo DNA and DNA AMP technologies which can also be found in the brands Levitate 4 and Bedlam 3 models. It delivers a soft but extremely responsive ride. The Ricochet 3 is versatile as it is great for daily mileage but also for tempo and other sessions.
So as stated, the midsole is soft but responsive. The DNA AMP cushioning is actually 20% lighter than before while providing the best energy return in the Brooks line and sits under the forefoot to give you a springy toe-off. So, a good combination for everyday running but as the shoe is fairly lightweight, it's a good choice for faster sessions when that DNA AMP foam will make you feel more energised.
We really like the look and feel of the sock-like upper. Brooks have improved the fit of the shoe and it really is very comforable. The knit has been reenginered to make it more flexible, more breathable, and it features an inner liner which adds to the comfort levels.
The chevron style rubber outsole has flex groves throughout making aiding fast transitions. It is relatively smooth, great for adding to a smooth ride. Grip is limited so definately one for the road only.
A versatile light trainer. Good looking and comfortable upper sitting on a combination of shock absorbing and springy foams. A very good shoe for daily use and decent value for money.
