Brooks Dyad 10 updates

Reliable grip on wet surfaces

The outsole of the Dyad 10 is divided into two major components. First is the forefoot area that uses traditional blown rubber, a material that is known for providing cushioning and protection simultaneously, thanks to its unique soft-and-durable structure.

The blown rubber equips the forefoot with a level of responsiveness and flexibility that allows for an energized, well-managed toe-off.

The second noteworthy part of the outsole is the rearfoot that is reinforced with HPR Plus, a durable rubber with a high abrasion-resistance quality. This element gives the shoe an adequate amount of grip during landing, while preventing it from excessive wear.

Dyad 10 provides stability and bilateral support

In the midfoot area is a tandem of stability units called the Dual-Stability Arch Pods. These components furnish the Dyad 10’s broad platform with stability and bilateral support. The design and position of these arch pods are intended to promote neutral pronation, as well as a natural and efficient gait cycle.

Also present in the outsole is one of two sets of flex indentations of the Dyad 10, the Omni Grooves. These installations lend to the shoe a flexible quality while also adding to its overall appearance.

Ensures maximum responsiveness and cushioning

The Brooks Dyad 10 features the proprietary DNA cushioning, a gel-based foam that adapts to the shape of the foot, thus ensuring maximum responsiveness and a more effective underfoot cushioning compared to regular foam.

The DNA variant of this shoe is BioMoGo, which means it is made from fewer source materials, making it environment-friendly.

Flexibility that encourages the foot’s natural movement

The shoe’s insole comes in two components: First is the S-257 Cushsole, which is made up of a midsole compound to provide additional cushioning and flexibility to the underfoot. Second is the Ultimate Sockliner, a removable sock liner that has a moisture-wicking capability.

To complement the outsole’s Omni Grooves, the midsole has Omega Grooves, which also help and enhance shoe flexibility and encourage the foot’s natural movement.

The Dyad 10’s Heel Segmented Crash Pad works by absorbing the impact that comes with footstrike and endorsing a smooth heel-to-toe transition. This feature augments the shoe’s flexible and responsive qualities.

Dyad 10 is more breathable and lightweight

On the upper of the Brooks Dyad 10 is an engineered mesh material that warrants a more breathable, more lightweight, and more durable shoe compared to those that use ordinary mesh.

With such enhanced properties, the upper is guaranteed to be more comfortable while offering maximum coverage and functionality.

Brooks Dyad 10 maintains snug and comfortable fit

Sealing the engineered mesh in place is the S-257 Cushsole lasting method, which involves the use of a full-length, advanced-level foam material to give the shoe additional cushioning in strategic locations.

This process makes for more in-shoe room, especially in the forefoot and toe areas.

Instead of traditional synthetic overlays, the Dyad 10 employs a midfoot saddle located beneath the mesh upper. It keeps the foot in place while maintaining a snug and comfortable fit.
