The women's Brooks Catamount delivers faster miles on trail.
Brooks designed the Catamount with an all-new DNA Flash midsole. The nitrogen-infused foam is super light and extremely bouncy, giving you a snappy step when you go off-road.
To give the Catamount traction, Brooks covered the outsole in a grippy rubber outsole. The TrailTack outsole is studded with rubber lugs for outstanding traction on uphills and downhills, no matter the weather.
Sandwiched into the midsole is a rock plate called the Ballistic Rock Shield. The protective plate keeps your feet from feeling jagged rocks and roots but remains flexible for an easy ride.
Topped with a lightweight mesh that drains water easily, the women's Brooks Catamount is a premier trail running and trail racing shoe that will take you as far as you want to go.
