The Brooks Women's Ariel Running Shoes and its brother shoe The Beast® are running's leading Control shoes because they deliver the perfect mix of stability and comfort, pampering runners with low or flat arches and excessive pronation. This triumph of technology has been taken to new heights in this update. Now empowered with brand-new, patent pending full-length Brooks DNA, the Ariel provides heel-to-toe protection for your foot while dynamically serving up an individually customized ride with optimal cushioning. Weight 12.3 oz.
The midsole features Brooks DNA, full length BioMoGo, Extended Progressive Diagonal rollbar (DRB), DRB Accel, and full length S-257 Cushsole.
The outsole features HPR Plus, HPR Green and Forefoot MC Pod Construction.
The upper features Ultimate Sockliner, Moisture-managing Element Mesh, Synthetic Overlay Materials, Moisture-managing Element Linings, and Internal Support Saddle.
Brooks DNA–Brooks DNA is a groundbreaking cushioning material that provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds. Working with BioMoGo, Brooks DNA responds to your every step, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace changes. When there is low impact the polymer chain interactions are loose and flexible. When there is medium impact the polymer chain interactions start to strengthen. And, when there is high impact the polymer chain interactions are strong and tight.
BIOMOGO–We've taken the long-lasting cushioning of our MoGo midsole and made it environmentally friendly. How, you ask? By adding a non-toxic, natural additive to the MoGo compound that encourages anaerobic microbes to munch away once it hits the landfill.
BiMoGo midsoles debuted in the spring of 2009 and set the bar for green innovation in the footwear industry. Here's a quick refresher course on the award-winning technology:
BioMoGo is a non-toxic, natural additive that encourages anaerobic microbes to break down the midsole into reusable byproducts once it his an active, enclosed landfill.
Traditional EVA midsoles can last up to 1,000 years in a landfill. BioMoGo breaks down 50 times faster.
BioMoGo midsoles will save 29.9 million pounds of landfill waste in roughly 20-25 years.
Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB®)–Our tri-density PDRB® midsoles are biomechanically engineered to allow for progressive pronation control and to create smoother transitions from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase.
DRB® ACCEL–Enhances tunable torsion of the midfoot. Shank-like thermoplastic devices vary from single units of a set modulus, to dualunit versions of varied modulus (tuned with higher stiffness for medial support, the lateral side less stiff to smooth the ride).
HPR Plus–A higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer.
HPR Green–This durable and long-wearing outsole compound is made with dispersed silica, resulting in premium wet-dry traction for excellent skid-resistance and a more environmentally friendly composition.
ENGINEERED MC POD CONFIGURATION–Midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot up in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum stability and responsiveness.
ELEMENT–Upper technology featuring superior microfiber construction to provide weather protection in a light, supple, quiet fabric that doesn't sacrifice breathability, durability, or comfort.
