Product Description

Revolutionary fusion of ultralight technology and mountain boot protection designed for moving fast and light over technical terrain in the mountains. Backpacker Magazine’s Editors’ Choice in 2004, the addition of Gore-Tex® represents the EVOlution of this proven design. This is a new generation of mountaineering footwear that changes the old paradigm and redefines what it means to be a mountaineering boot.

Features

•Innovative 3D Flex™ ankle provides lock-out power for front pointing in crampons, kicking steps in snow or standing on small edges when rock climbing all the while remaining flexible from side-to-side for efficient flat-footing (French) technique on hard frozen snow and soft alpine ice
•Gore-Tex® lining for waterproof breathable performance coupled with an all synthetic upper keeps you dry when the snow gets soft and sloppy
•7mm Trailflex insole with a Dual-density Micropore midsole for the perfect combination of step-kicking rigidity, pack full-o gear stability and twenty-mile 3,000 vert cushioning
•Vibram® Mulaz sole with Climbing Zone platform for technical rock climbing performance
•Water-repellent Cordura® nylon uppers with Flex Tec 2 rubber-coated, Aramide-reinforced polyester panels are super durable and lightweight
•Reinforced with water-repellent Lorica® synthetic leather for maximum durability and strength
•Waterproof, seam-sealed Gore-Tex® inserts keep feet dry while allowing excess moisture vapor to escape to prevent overheating
•Wicking Dri-lex® nylon linings absorb excess moisture and disperse it for fast drying and enhanced comfort
•Fully-gusseted and padded tongues keep out debris and water while relieving lacing pressure
•Full rubber randing protects feet and uppers from abrasion and bumps while enhancing edging ability on thin edges
•Trailflex nylon midsole supports with half-length steel shanks provide optimal torsional rigidity while remaining comfortable for long approaches
•Dual-density micropore rubber provides fine-tuned performance with differing levels of cushioning and support for long-haul trips
•Lasted specifically for a woman's foot with a broader toe box and narrower heel for a great fit
•Durable Vibram® Dru rubber outsoles deliver amazing traction on wet and dry surfaces; undercut heels for braking and edging platforms at toes
•Outsoles are compatible with both strap-on and hybrid(New-matic) style crampons

exenerTHE Best Boots EVER!

Voted 5/5

I've put many many miles of hiking, rock and ice climbing, mountaineering in these boots and am consistently impressed with their functionality and comfort. They take crampons well, are stiff enough for rock climbing, sticky on granite slabs, and provide plenty of stability for morraine fields.

I can't say enough good things about these boots..... just awesome!

asmrzVery versatile boot

Voted 5/5

I bought these for my girlfriend Penelope in 2005. We were planning to climb Gannet Peak and she didn't want to lug her Makalus all the way to Titcomb Basin (17 miles one way). She hiked in these Trangos. We climbed the North Face, had crampons on most of the day and the boots worked great. Pen used them since in the Sierra in early season, on summer ice couloirs and hiking in winter here at home in San Jacinto Mountains. The boots are great for her. She has G-12 Newmatic Crampons with them, which match the boots well. After 3+ seasons, she has absolutely no complains, she loves the boots. This is a good product and the print fits the woman's foot really well.

sourstrawBest boots I've ever owned

I've worn these boots on Rainier and many other mountains ... I wear them backpacking and hiking/climbing during the winter. They are AWESOME. Comfortable and warm ... I put a pair of Super Feet insoles in them to fit my awkward arch a bit better ... my feet never hurt, beyond the normal tiredness ... I LOVE them.
