- The Asolo Piz GV is intended for arduous mountain climbs and challenging trekking expeditions. Its sturdy yet lightweight upper made of suede leather and Schoeller soft shell is lined with a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproofing. This supportive and water-protected upper is tucked under the Asoflex Spiky lasting board which is made of fiberglass and nylon.
- Its dual-density microporous midsole provides both cushioning and stability. It is engineered with the Dual Integrated System which sees two subcomponents with different densities unified at the heel for added stability, support, and shock absorption.
Asolo’s Piz GV is a mid-cut boot for male and female mountaineers. Its adequately true-to-size fit is targeted at wearers with regular-width feet. It is offered in whole and half sizes. The women’s boot has been crafted around a gender-specific last, making its overall profile favoring the female foot. A snug and secure foot lockdown is handled by the footwear’s quick lacing system.
This Asolo mountaineering gear is armed with a grippy, Mont-based Vibram outsole, called Mulaz. Its rubberized construction has been made more rigid to withstand the ruggedness of the terrain. It has also been designed to defy the freezing cold to help climbers perform with enough effectiveness in biting conditions. The tip of its forefoot section is labeled with “Climbing Zone.” This particular sole feature allows mountaineers to gain ground with better precision.
For ample stability and underfoot protection, the Asolo Piz GV features a dual-density microporous midsole. Its ability to absorb shock is improved by its chunky heel which is part of the boot’s Dual Integrated System. Nested securely atop this shock-mitigating heel implement is a crampon attach point made of polyurethane. Granting users additional foot comfort is the boot’s anatomic Lite 4 insole.
The main materials making up the Piz GV’s upper are suede leather (with thickness running between 1.6 and 1.8 millimeters) and Schoeller soft shell—both are water resistant. Its padded interior (lining) is engineered with Gore-Tex’s Performance Comfort, leaving the boot watertight yet equally as breathable to deal with sweat and moisture. There is also a film made of a hardwearing material covering the base portion of the upper for abrasion protection.
Users have the ability to lock in their desired fit thanks to the footgear’s speed lacing system. Metallic open hooks and lace loops made of fabric comprise its combination eyelets.
