This combination—plus some auxiliary features—makes it ready for most outdoor challenges and classic mountaineering, hard trekking, and snow travel.

Piolet GV provides a grippy outsole 

The rockered profile of its sole unit grants a smooth rolling motion. Its bi-density microporous midsole yields durable cushioning, and its Vibram outsole grips on virtually all types of terrain.

The Asolo Piolet GV caters to male and female mountaineers. It comes in standard width and regular sizes. It has a lace-up closure which permits customization of fit. This gear fairly runs true to size.

Offers reliable stability and traction

This high-cut mountaineering boot uses a Vibram Ascent rubber outsole to tackle various ground conditions. Testers said that the self-cleaning, aggressive boots render reliable stability and traction. 

The wider lugs at the tip of the forefoot and rearfoot optimize grip on steep slopes and challenging paths. Its heel brake, on the other hand, enhances bite on descents.

Yields a cushioned and comfortable ride

Underfoot, the Piolet GV features the Dual Integrated System. This technology includes inserts under the heel with two varying densities.

A high-density TPU at the rear receives the crampon connection and aids in stability. The low-density PU foam (Anti-Shock) below it connects to the bi-density microporous midsole to yield a cushioned and comfortable ride.

Protective and durable

To provide support and firmness, the brand designers added Asoflex spiky nylon with a glass fiber lasting board. Also, an anatomical Lite 4 footbed optimizes comfort for longer and harder mountain climbing.
