Brooks Men's Caldera 6


Our Take 

Brooks is entering the maximal trail category with the newly revamped Caldera 6.  With a midsole thickness in-between the New Balance Trail More but closer to the Hoka Speedgoat the totally revamped Caldera now boasts a nitrogen infused DNA Loft v3 midsole and with a lot of it, you are bound to feel all that cushioning for endless trail miles.  What also stands out is the wider platform (more similar to the New Balance) and the slightly higher drop compared to the Speedgoat and Trail More (6mm versus 4mm).  That plus the raised sidewalls (you sit in the midsole and not on top of it), we feel that the Caldera 6 will offer you the stability and cushioning you need for your next long trail adventure.
