Secure footing on the trail

The Asolo Stynger GTX’s grippy proprietary outsole called Syncro is made with a combination of polyurethane (PU) and rubber. It uses multi-shaped lugs to give the wearer a secure footing on the trail, especially over parts where the terrain is either soft or mushy.

Mitigating slips and skids during downhill traversals

The brand designers gave it a heel brake—a feature responsible for mitigating slips and skids during downhill traversals. This hardwearing component slightly covers the footgear’s toe bumper for even more frontal protection. The ridges engineered on it may help hikers negotiate narrow ledges with extra sticking power.

Comfortable and shock-absorbing cushioning

When it comes to cushioning and stability, the Stynger GTX relies on its mono-density midsole. It is made of polyurethane or PU, a highly durable material capable of withstanding great stress and weight. The construction of its heel part is noticeably thick for improved shock absorption.

For even more comfort underfoot, designers from Asolo topped this robust yet cushy component with the Lite 2 footbed. It has a kind of contour that gives the adventurer extra rearfoot and medial support.

Excellent ankle support

The ankle-supportive upper of the Stynger GTX is a combination of high-tenacity nylon and water-resistant suede leather which has a thickness ranging between 1.6 and 1.8 mm.

Breathable and waterproof

It is lined with Gore-Tex’s Performance Comfort technology (also seen in the Asolo boots Drifter GV and Shiraz GV), making the shoe adequately breathable and watertight at the same. The reinforcement present at its forefoot, the footgear’s toe cap, is made of long-wearing rubber.
