GuideRails empower the foot’s natural range of motion, so you and your shoe work together to keep you in your stride.
Brooks Running Company brings its innovative GuideRails support system to the historic Adrenaline GTS franchise with the new Adrenaline GTS 19 launching today. The updated GuideRails system delivers smart support that focuses on stability at the most injury-prone part of a runner’s body, the knee.
GuideRails are a result of Run Signature, Brooks’ biomechanics paradigm that begins with the understanding that there is no one right way to runner, just the individual’s unique way of running and that the body will perform at its best when footwear works with an individual’s unique motion path.The GuideRails system replaces the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar and offers runners more versatile support because while support runners may rely on GuideRails all the time, Neutral runners may only use them when their stride falls out of place.
Similar to bumpers in bowling, GuideRails are there when you need them and out of your way when you don’t. They work hard to reduce excess heel and shin rotation to keep your natural knee motion within a safe range, so you can run without pain or discomfort.
The Adrenaline GTS 19 will be the first shoe to feature the new GuideRails holistic support system which features two unique parts—an inner wall to stabilize calcaneal eversion and an outer wall that limits excess calcaneal shifting. The updated version of the storied GTS also provides softer cushioning underfoot with a combination of new DNA LOFT and BioMoGo DNA as well as a modernized fit with engineered mesh and 3D Fit Print on the upper.
The Adrenaline GTS 19 is available at brooksrunning.com and retailers worldwide for $130.
