Features & Benefits:
Anatomical Brooks® DNA is a groundbreaking, patent-pending cushioning material that provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds. Working with BioMoGo, Brooks® DNA responds to your every step, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace and surface change
Full-length BioMoGo We've taken the long-lasting cushioning of our MoGo midsole and made it more environmentally friendly. A non-toxic, natural additive in the BioMoGo compound encourages anaerobic microbes to munch away 50 times faster once it hits and active, enclosed landfill
Diagonal Rollbar (DRB®) a high-density post at the medial arch is engineered for pronation control and creates a smoother transition from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase
DRB® Accel Shank-like thermoplastic device provides torsional rigidity to midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently
Full-length S-257 Cushsole Exclusive midsole compound decreases breakdown by 15% while providing excellent energy return and cushioning with every stride
Heel Caterpillar Tech
Universal Contoured Platform
HPR Plus A higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer
Forefoot Stable Pod Construction outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum stability and responsiveness
There are three things that I really like about these shoes:
* DNA cushioning
* The extra loop to keep the tongue in place
* They feel almost the same as the GTS 11
I bought these shoes because I wanted something with a little less support than the GTS series and the Ravenna 2 delivers. Standing and walking in the Ravenna 2 they feel just like the GTS, only after about 10 miles you can tell there's a little bit less pronation control. Why not just buy the GTS? Well... I wanted to give my arches a little bit more of a workout without going straight to a minimal shoe.
A great shoe!
This shoe has saved my running! It is a great shoe for MILD pronators. I have a narrow foot but a larger instep. I had been running in narrow shoes with lots of stability (medial) support. Last Spring while traing for a half marathon, I developed a lot of instep pain. I finally reallized that the medial support was traumatizing my instep because this section of the shoe was too narrow. When I wore my orthotic it was even worse because the narrow mid-foot and medial support exaggerated the effect of both the shoe and the orthotic. After a running hiatus of nearly 2 months, I started running again, and ordered the Ravenna 2 from RRS in a medium width. The combination of a wider shoe and less medial support has, thusfar, been perfect with no orthotic required. This morning, I ran 5 miles: my longest run since my half, with no pain! I recommend this shoe as an outstanding choice for a runner who is a mild pronator who wants a comfortable fit and a reasonable shoe weight.
Overall still good shoe!
Always worried when they come out with a new revision to a shoe I love. Wore out about 6 pairs of the first version Revenna, but these seem to feel fairly the same.

Liked the original - you'll love the 2
