Trail & Kale Team: Next-Level ARRIS Carbon Fiber Plate Behind Brooks’ HE4 Super Shoe

Helen Dixon of the Trail & Kale Team takes a closer look at the BROOKS x ARRIS partnership behind the innovative carbon plate featured in the HE4, which pushes boundaries beyond the traditional approach used in every other running shoe on the market today.

“The ARRIS plate used in these Brooks super shoes isn’t just any carbon fiber plate, it’s a unique composite that offers significant benefits over more traditional carbon plates commonly used in high-end running shoes.” That’s Helen of Trail & Kale in a recent write-up following a Hyperion Elite 4 product review by Alastair. The digital resource on all things running is committed to helping you RUN YOUR BEST with top-tier footwear reviews, tips, training, and more.

In early March, Helen’s post went live… “One of the greatest waves of innovation in the running shoe industry over the last couple of years is undoubtedly the developments in the Super Shoe space; that is, those cutting-edge shoes that are engineered for the ultimate in speed and race day performance.”
