Tech­no­logies for Climbing Getting to know the rock.

Bouldern in Africa

Alpine climbing, athletic climbing on rocks or in the hall, boul­­dering and free soloing – climbing is performed in the widest range of ways. The primary goal is not really the athletic aspect of the activity. Rather, it’s the overall experience or the scaling of a wall or the completion of a route that counts.
No matter whether you are indoors or out on Alpine terrain: Good grip, precision and perfect fit are essential when someone selects a pair of climbing and boul­­dering shoes.

High-friction sole A good sole for a climbing shoe will produce a high degree of friction and and thereby perfectly mould the shoe to the surface of the rock or climbing wall.

Fit For the wearer to be able to stand on the narrowest of edges, the shoe must perfectly fit and optimally encase the foot.

Generalist Routes taken in climbing often vary signi­ficantly. For the shoe to perfectly meet every challenge, it should be designed with a broad range of uses in mind.
