The Brooks Cascadia 16 lets you explore the trails fearlessly, thanks to an updated Ballistic Rock Shield and enhanced adaptability throughout the outsole. The Cascadia 16 uses DNA Loft v2 foam to provide an even lighter, softer feel while you run. This helps absorb impact and cushion landings on uneven surfaces.
Unique grooves in the midsole and outsole help the shoe conform to rocky terrain, providing stability on even the most unstable trails. An updated Ballistic Rock Shield works with the more adaptable construction of the shoe to offer protection from rocks and debris while helping to stabilize your ride.
A reinforced toe offers additional protection, while the knit mesh throughout the toe box provides ventilation to help you deal with hot temps and water crossings. The heel collar is padded and protected to block debris and keep your foot securely engaged.
