Durable traction in the Ravenna 7

The Omni Grooves in the shoe’s outsole works perfectly with the midsole’s Omni Flex Grooves. It delivers added flexibility without sacrificing cushioning. It delivers an effortless forefoot ride.

The outsole unit of the Brooks Ravenna 7 uses the HPR Plus that gives durable traction through its high abrasion-resistant capacity. The blown rubber also works well with the outsole technology since it offers not only flexibility and durability but also a responsive ride.

Reliable performance with the Ravenna 7

The midsole utilizes the BioMoGo DNA midsole cushioning which is believed to be more reliable than the standard MoGo midsole. It is an environment-friendly alternative that delivers a more flexible and softer running experience. It works well with the Diagonal Rollbar (DRB) which serves as the dual-density foam that reduces overpronation.

Improved flexibility

The Omega Flex Grooves in the shoe’s midsole is also a great help in improving the midsole flexibility without affecting the cushioning. When at rest, the grooves provide support and when it flexes, it flexes openly, achieving its maximum flexibility capacity.
