Description

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.

Profile

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.

Curved
Asymmetry

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

Medium/High
Stiffness

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

Medium
Uppers Leather + synthetic
Closure Hook-and-loop
Tension

A highly tensioned shoe tends to push your foot forward to create a powerful curve in your toes.
