Brooks Transcend: the Core Technologies

To support the concept of Stride Signature, Brooks unveiled a new heavily cushioned running shoe : The Transcend.
According to Brooks, the Transcend is not just about delivering lots of cushioning, but the fresh technologies behind the shoe is about providing support that kicks in only when the runner needs it. And there are 5 technologies are embedded within the shoes to achieve that.

And the 5 key technologies behind the Brooks Transcend are explained as:

The Super DNA is 25% better cushioned than the BioMoGo DNA, delivers adaptable cushioning that is designed to provide the ultimate cushioned ride and it is supposed to smartly adapts to your every stride. Brooks calls this “float.”  and if you remember the kind of superior cushioning the Glycerin 11 or Trance 12 provides, imagine that the Transcend is even better!

Guide Rails – is the 'dark coloured rail' that sit atop the midsole foam and to the outer edges of your foot, to control your movement if you deviate too far from the way your body is expected to travel. Brooks believes the Transcend will deliver plenty of stability without using a traditional post, the firm gray foam found under the arch of many running shoe and still allow your lower body’s joints to follow their natural movements. 

You can think of this like bumper bowling on the footbed. The Guide Rails revolutionalizes traditional stability by allowing your hips, knees and joints to move within their unique motion path while you run all without traditional posts. It replaces the Diagonal Rollbars to balance off pronation and supination issues. 

Ideal Pressure Zones – distributes pressure evenly within the heel, mid-foot and forefoot. The shock of impact will not feel magnified in any one area, as it gets minimized and spread out evenly. This will distribute greatest pressure over larger area and minimize local pressure while maximizing comfort.

Ideal Heel aligns every stride naturally where the focus is put on where your heel usually lands in its natural motion. It all starts with a rounded heel like that found on the Pure Project shoes. This reduces the amount of material at the outer edge of your heel, which if it were there and made contact with the ground would speed your rate of pronation.

Plush Upper – conforms to every foot for a custom fit. With a soft, comfortable and luxurious feel, your running will reach an experience of a new level with the no-sew tunnels that integrate laces into upper for a wrapped fit that customized to different foot shapes. It is to provide that plush sensation which continues above the midsole with the shoe’s upper features luxurious materials that are expected to feel soft against the foot. 

The Brooks Transcend will be available from February 2014 onwards and is expected to retail for RM759.

Here are the exciting colours of the Transcend.

OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2014 - Official Results

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 January 2014 – Minister of Youth and Sports YB Encik Khairy Jamaluddin applauded the tremendous response to OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2014, which attracted over 6,000 participants in its third edition. He had earlier cycled with more than 3,000 riders in The Challenge (48km) while the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, YBhg. Datuk Seri Haji Ahmad Phesal bin Haji Talib, also flagged off the ride.

When asked what he thought of the third edition of Malaysia’s largest mass participation cycling event on closed public roads, he said, “It is a fantastic experience for all cyclists because Kuala Lumpur offers a unique blend of lush scenery, cultural heritage, and modern cityscapes. I wish to applaud Spectrum Worldwide, OCBC Bank, and Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) for making this event a success.”

He then called for greater support to enhance the sport as he hopes to instil a healthier culture amongst Malaysians. “The Mayor did an amazing job because it is not easy to close off the city. With his continued support, I am hoping that the organisers are able to extend the route by an additional five kilometres that would allow the capacity to increase by another 1,000 cyclists or so. If more Malaysians took up cycling, it will definitely help shape a fitter Malaysia,” he added.

Day three of OCBC Cycle Malaysia ended with The Challenge (48km), The Community Ride (24km), The Foldies Community Ride (24km) and The Corporate Charity Challenge (48km).

Fun for the entire family

OCBC Cycle Malaysia attracts cyclists of all kinds and a major group often involves families who sign up their children for The Junior Challenge (30 minutes), The Kids Ride (5.5km) and The Tricycle Ride (100m) as well as participating in The Challenge (48km) and The Community Ride (24km) themselves.

Spectrum Worldwide’s Managing Director, Chris Robb, was elated by the huge turnout upon the event’s return to Dataran Merdeka. “We were always delighted to be able to return to Dataran having held the event here during our inaugural edition. The venue carries such cultural and historical significance, while the lush field creates a fantastic atmosphere for picnics – but with bicycles!”

Nicky Choy, a mother who rode with her three children and six nephews and nieces said, “OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2014 provides the perfect opportunity to create crucial bonding time between family members through a healthy and fun sporting event. This is our second time participating, and you will be seeing us again next year!”

Che Suza, who participated in The Challenge (48km) along with his wife, Mazlina Mokhtar, and his two beautiful children said, “We encourage our children to participate in cycling sport and they have been trained in mountain biking since young. Participating in OCBC Cycle Malaysia 2014 has been a great experience for our family and we are looking forward to participate again next year!”
Bikes of all shapes and sizes turn up

While the event saw many variations of road bikes, mountain bikes, and folding bikes, there were some unique designs that caught the eye such as this front-wheel recumbent bicycle, parent-child tandem bicycle, and a flaming Chopper-inspired bicycle! These eye-catching designs simply add to the spectacle of a cycling extravaganza for both riders and camera-happy spectators!
Giving back to the community
Whilst the main objectives of the event are to encourage healthy living and to have fun, a major component of OCBC Cycle Malaysia is to create opportunities to give a little back to communities. The Corporate Charity Challenge, which saw 16 teams comprised of 64 riders raise RM72,000 for the event’s official charities: The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM), The Budimas Charitable Foundation, and the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM).

After the rides, families and spectators were welcomed to visit Sport and Lifestyle Expo located at Dataran Underground, where various bicycle merchandises could be purchased at specially discounted prices.

OCBC Cycle Malaysia, which is Malaysia’s largest mass participant cycling event on closed public roads, ran from 17 to 19 January 2014 at Dataran Merdeka. For more information, kindly visit
