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.

Ice and mixed climbing Precision for frozen worlds.

Insu­lation Boots designed for ice and mixed climbing are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

Crampon welts Anyone who traverses icy or mixed terrain needs crampon-compatible boots. LOWA ice-climbing boots have permanently affixed crampons or are designed to accept fully automatic crampons.

Sole rigidity Boots with a torsionally stable sole play a very important role in a wearer’s ability to maintain stable footing while using crampons. This takes the load off foot muscles and combats fatigue.
