Boreal puts everything on friction, offering a shoe with extreme seal.10 July 2017
Borders, sole, heel and tip; each of these parts of the shoe may be necessary to ensure success. Mutant by Boreal is designed to not stand compromise.
The Mutant features a highly asymmetric and downturned last to optimally position the foot on steep rock. The highly advanced sole unit comprises a super-sticky molded Zenith rubber forefoot half-sole and one-piece Zenith heel cup. These molded sections have an accurate 3D shape to hold the foot with no dead space, and maintain their shape over time.
Thinner rubber is used in the middle of the sole to enhance flexibility, and ensure a close fit under the arch. The Lateral Torsion System, a band running around the heel and under the foot, securely holds the foot in place aiding power transmission across the shoe.
The premium quality unlined leather upper features our new Friction Skin coating for ultimate toe-hooking ability without the pain of a rubber toe covering and the simple elastic and single Velcro strap closure system ensures a comfortable, low profile fit.
The Mutant is the ideal choice for boulderers, competition climbers and sport climbers operating at higher grades or on steeper rock.
1. Zenith is a unique high performance climbing rubber compound developed by Boreal. This compound provides outstanding friction and excellent hold on small edges.
2. The Lateral Torsion System is the latest development in rand tensioning technology. A tensioning band is used in conjunction with varying rubber thickness to produce a highly supportive yet supple hold on the foot.
3. Friction Skin is the name given to our special coating designed to enhance friction on the top of the shoe. Granules of our ultra sticky Zenith rubber are combined with a durable glue to create a thin and supple rubber layer over the toes.
