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.

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.
