Meet our fastest shoes, designed to take you from training to triumph. Developed with some of our fastest pros — yet designed for runners of all speeds — the Hyperion Elite 2 and Hyperion Tempo help you unlock your potential.

If you’re looking for better workouts, the Hyperion Tempo is your new favourite training buddy. Using our new ultra-light DNA FLASH cushioning, this shoe is designed to keep you in your natural motion path and return energy as you run. So you can train harder with less overall fatigue.

And for race day, the Hyperion Elite 2 has just what you need to give it your all from the start line to the finish chute. The shoe’s inherently stable design works with the Carbon Fiber Propulsion Plate to save energy and keep you in your natural motion path even when fatigue sets in. Plus our lightest cushioning, DNA FLASH, works with the plate to propel you forward with an extra spring in every step.

Your feet and these shoes will become fast friends.

Hyperion Elite 2

Designed for race day, the Hyperion Elite 2 delivers our fastest ride to runners serious about speed. Our super-light DNA FLASH midsole adapts to your stride to provide consistent cushion without adding bulk. And the shoe is designed to keep you running in your preferred motion path even as you fatigue — saving energy so you can go faster for longer.

Our carbon fibre Propulsion Plate with unique spine construction speeds your transition from heel to forefoot in each step and propels your toe-off.

Updated nitrogen-infused DNA FLASH midsole balances ultralight weight with energy return and durability for sustainable speed. DNA FLASH will maintain cushioning and responsiveness for 200-400 miles, just like daily trainers. Rapid Roll Technology encourages fast turnover.

Hyperion Tempo

Get more out of your workouts with the Hyperion Tempo. DNA FLASH midsole technology offers a lightweight feel, excellent energy return, and comfortable cushioning — paving the road to better training sessions and new PRs.

True innovation requires a willingness to do things differently. So when we created DNA FLASH, we looked outside the running footwear industry for inspiration. By studying and applying chemical infusion processes, we discovered a new way to optimize our cushioning for lightweight and energy return — offering the long-lasting performance runners need to support intense training and high mileage.



So how does it work?

Using our proprietary DNA cushioning as our base, we infuse it with nitrogen through a supercritical fluid foaming process — a super fancy way of saying that we apply pressure and heat to liquid nitrogen until it starts to transform into a gas. As the nitrogen transforms from liquid to gas, millions of microscopic bubbles form, providing cell structure that naturally returns energy without adding extra weight. We finetune temperature and pressure during the process to ensure a perfect balance between the foam’s responsiveness and lightweight. The end result is a DNA midsole full of tightly packed nitrogen-infused cell structures, producing an incredibly lightweight and responsive cushioning. Combined with nitrogen infusion’s inherent energy return, the overall experience is one of sustainable speed — perfect for nailing tough workouts so you can crush your goal on race day.

Bottom line, the ideal time of day to exercise is when it is best for you. Although more research is needed in this area to draw a conclusion on exactly what time of day is the best to exercise, what we do know is that long-term exercise does in fact improve aerobic capacity, cardiac function, management of BMI, and strength. So, the evidence points to moving your body for overall wellness regardless of what time you do it.
