The updated Vapor is a technical shoe that provides serious stability and performance, whether you’re jamming thin cracks or out on the face. The Vapor’s stiff platform features minimal stitching to increase comfort and eliminate hotspots.
Bi-Tension System - This tension system uses a reverse slingshot rand anchored under the critical toe area to connect directly to the heel rand. The patent-pending system actively pulls power from the toes to provide higher performance without cramming your toes forward.
D2 Rubber - A fusion of two rubber compounds. M50 and M70, avoiding overlapping. It combines the adaptability of M50 with the containment and precision of M70. The combination is perfect for use on toe rands and above the toes.
PAF - An innovative heel system that helps both spread the force of the heel tension and increase the fit of the heel. The aggressive tension-rubber is interrupted behind the heel to reduce pressure on the Achilles tendon and connected with softer rubber, that works like a bridge and allows full adaption to the shape of the heel. The holes on the side indicate the tension applied, which varies between 1 hole for light tension, 2 holes for mid tension and 3 holes for strong tension.
Vegan - This shoe does not contain any materials sourced from animals or that utilize any kind of animal testing. All of the materials sourced for these Vegan products utilize fully synthetic materials with no components coming from animals, including the glues used in soling.
