Heel Tension System
The “HEEL TENSION SYSTEM” is the innovative system applied on the heel area of the upper that offers great stability and adaptability to the severe stress derived from steep routes.
The “ANKLE PADDING SYSTEM” is made of a special “MEMORY FOAM” padding that further improves teh ability of self-moulding of the rear part of the upper. This technical solution is very light and breathable, irt keeps its dynamic memory in terms of last and thickness so it recovers its original shape after every use.
The AUTOFIT COLLAR, thanks to the ergonomic design of tha collar and to the special padding, ensures the maximum adaptability and comfort of the upper, resisting the impact stress rests on the Achilles and malleous area. Great performance and comfort on any terrain.
The “V-FLEX SYSTEM” is the ergonomic design of the upper on the ankle flex area. It allows a wider and more natural movement of the foot. The upper, in synergy with the elacing system, wraps the foot in an optimal way, offering the maximum comfort and support.
The “SPEED LACING SYSTEM”, integrated with the ergonomic design of the upper, allows the optional adjustment of the internal volumes of the shoe and the perfect wrapping of the foot, in a simple and quick way, making the fit more precise and customised, offering maximum confidence on any terrain.
B1 Boots are compatible with a C1 crampon.
They offer a good balance between stiffness and flexibility, with a midfoot TPU support shank for crampon use and load support, but enough flex in the forefoot for walking. Best suited to mountain walking and backpacking, these will handle simple glacier crossings, but are not suitable for ice or technical winter routes.
