Well suited for long routes of any difficulty, the Helix will soon feel like it’s part of your DNA. These are a good choice emerging climbers and those who want comfort and versatile performance. The shoes features a precise, all-day fit. The soles are sensitive yet stiff and supportive enough for balance on slabs and or cam into cracks.
- Slight asymmetric shape and flat toe profile.
- Medium stiffness ensures sensitive feel for steep or gym climbing with support for slabs or edging.
- Low heel tension for comfortable fit with enough lock for pulling heel hooks.
- Sticky and durable 3.5mm rubber for secure grip.
- Members typically downsize 1-1.5 sizes (performance fit) or 0.5-1 sizes (comfort fit) from their street shoe size.
A neutral shoe suits long routes and cracks. Moderate shoes allow precision and good edging. Aggressive shoes are downturned 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.
