rubber focuses on providing excellent performance
on rock. When formulating our climbing shoe rubber,
the following factors are emphasized: Traction
(Friction and Grip) and Hardness and Durability
Traction (Friction and Grip)
- TRAX rubber not only has excellent friction,
it provides "grip" as well. Grip is
the result of deformation of the rubber allowing
it to surround the irregularities of the rock
surface. This effect provides more surface contact
with the rock and adds the ability to effectively
push against the irregularities of the surface.
Hardness and Durability - Having good
friction alone is not sufficient for a climbing
shoe rubber. The rubber sole must also have the
optimum level of hardness for precision edging
and the ability to hold the weight of the climber
while still having friction and grip. TRAX is
very durable and can endure the continuous abuse
that the rubber sole undergoes during climbing.
Have your own rubber? - If you have
your own rubber from a resole kit that you want
us to use, send it to us and take $7 off the resole.
We're happy to work with you!
