New lacing and tongue, same
great performance. The Boreal LYNX has a
moderately down turned profile, is medium
stiff and features the super sticky Zenith
Rubber - ideal for all types of climbing
- from bouldering to crack climbs. Built
with a medium thickness midsole with anatomical
cutaway (in the center forefoot) the LYNX
is stiffer than it's cousin KINTARO - for
greater versatility and support. This cutaway
enables you to maximize use of holds in
an entirely new way - edge, smear or
latch the inner edge of the cutaway
and pull on a crystal, knob or
square-cut. This technique will give you
more security on smaller holds and longer
staying power for harder cruxes. Nice!
New also is Boreal's V2 heel rand which
comfortably tensions and cradles your foot
securely. The LYNX also sports a firm and
textured heel for hooking an edge, pulling
in, then rocking onto the hold. Down under,
the rear half of the Zenith sole is ribbed
for traction while belaying or descending
scary slabs - ala Tuolumne.
Manufactured from high quality split leather
with offset speed lace system and breathable
& padded mesh tongue. Great for gym,
sport and trad climbers of all grades and
abilities who want to step it up a notch.
Made in Spain, shipped worldwide.
TOOL TIP: For
close barefoot fit - convert your US running
shoe size to UK (ie US 11 = UK 10) for super
snug fit. Go up 1/2 size for balance of
comfort & performance.
