Show Description

These agressive shoes excel at thin foot placements, but have enough flex to perform moderately well for smearing and jamming. Scarpa's Bi-Tension system pulls power back from toes rather than cramming your foot painfully forward, so get more power with less tension on your foot.

  • Uppers are made of suede and microsuede.
  • Velcro® closure.
  • Slightly asymmetric, curved shape for precise foot placement.
  • Mid-stiff platforms.
  • Sole is 4mm Vibram® XS Edge rubber.

A flat profile suits long routes and cracks. Curved shoes allow precision and good edging. Hooked shoes are down-turned and tensioned, for power to the toe on steep or overhanging routes.


Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.


Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
