Climbing Lacing provides precise lacing in the toe area of the shoe, for more support and performance in difficult terrain.
In technical apparel, GORE-TEX® fabrics are at the forefront of waterproofing, breathability and durability. The GORE-TEX® membrane is completely waterproof and windproof while allowing evaporated sweat to pass through to the outside. The membrane is made up of pores (1.4 billion pores per square centimeter) that are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water but 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, so water can't penetrate but the skin can breathe. Durability was tested in the lab by simulating the most extreme atmospheric conditions.
The CLEANSPORT NXT uses pro-biotic technology to prevent odors from developing in athletic products and footwear.
Thanks to a curved back, the FLEX COLLAR provides the ankle with increased freedom of movement to the rear for greater comfort during rapid descents with large steps.
