Connor expressed how much he appreciated the energy return the shoe gave: "The Hyperion Elite 2's energy return is phenomenal. You can feel the springiness, and it just makes running fast feel fun. The DNA Flash midsole is a big step in the right direction, making the shoe so unique. It's everything I loved in the Hyperion Tempo, but the added stack height and carbon-fiber plate provide even more energy return for race day."
Our other tester Liz, found the new cushioning to be the right combination of soft and responsive: "While the DNA Flash foam isn't as soft as Nike's Zoom X foam, it has a very comfortable underfoot feel that never feels jarring or uncomfortable underfoot."
