Our impressions

This year the Brooks Glycerin 20 is also available in the Neutral or in a GTS version that offers even greater stability thanks to Guidarails in the rear. About 40% of runners prefer the latter model who expect great stability and comfort from glycerin.

With this model, Brooks emphasized the model’s premium position by offering the best materials and design solutions. The new nitroinfusion technology isn’t exactly new, Brooks shyly experimented with three years ago when he released the first version of the Hyperion Time. Now it seems to have gained the certainty that this material can provide both performance and durability, so it decided to expand the technology to include best-selling models as well. The Glycerin range has been confirmed as a good choice for runners who are looking first and foremost for comfort for running at any distance and for daily training.
