The stitch pattern and 8 panel upper maps the toes allowing for the best custom moulding of the material around the critical areas of the foot. The twin lace arms pull from a panel stitched deep under the foot, reducing layers and increasing heel tension.
A cleverly designed TPS midsole balances sensitivity with support. The floating big toe pad brings sensitivity and the four toe grouping gives enough support for small edges. The heel has a Relion plastic strip to allow greater pressure to be placed on a smaller area when hooking.
PCB Tension system maintains the shape of the shoe without interfering with the dynamics of natural foot movement. This tensioned rubber strip combines with the SRT system, reducing the layers of material around the foot and adding to sensitivity when climbing. The SRT system surrounds the foot with rubber giving excellent hooking abilities in all directions.
The 1/3 sole in Vibram XS grip 2 rubber below the toes gives excellent friction and maintains excellent freedom of movement in the rest of the shoe.
