Brooks Blue Line development labs were created about three and a half years ago, as a way for the company to get ahead of the curve in technology and consumer needs. You are probably already familiar with their work: The Hyperion and Hyperion Elite 2 were both born in the Blue Line labs.
“Our goal with the Aurora is to create a running experience akin to running in space. We named it the Aurora after the Aurora Borealis, way up in the atmosphere, as close to space as possible,” says Jain.
Brooks' design is typically informed by runner’s biomechanics. While the Aurora may look like nothing you’ve ever seen before, it’s performance is uniquely Brooks.
“We want to provide a natural running experience. We’re looking to create a rolling sensation with easy turnover while adding more cushioning without compromising the weight,” says Jain.
It’s safe to say the Brooks Aurora exceeds expectations.
