Show Description

Hook, scum, and edge with unparalleled sensitivity, power, and confidence. A precise fit and edgeless sole lets you find every crystal on friction-dependent projects and sticky Vibram® XS Grip2 rubber adds smearing potential. Solution-proven P3® technology ensures powerful pulling and edging on steep lines, while the asymmetrical lace-up system provides a precision fit for every foot shape.

  • Unlined uppers and perforated tongues are breathable for muggy rainforest sessions.
  • No-Edge™ technology eliminates traditional edges of the sole, allowing optimal contact and sensitivity between foot and rock.
  • P3® (Permanent Power Platform) ensures a downturned yet flexible shape for steep lines or featureless vert.
  • Pointed toe allows precision on pocketed limestone.
  • Sticky toe rand rubber coverage helps lock-in toe hooks.
  • Thin, 3mm Vibram® XS Grip2 gives precise performance and maximum friction.

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.

Stiffness

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