Who should buy the La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX
The La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX manages to impress, thanks to its versatility and lightweight performance. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a low profile mountaineering boot that can be used for technical terrain and low-grade climbing routes
- Prefer a durable and lightweight low-profile mountaineering boot.
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that delivers multidirectional grip on most types of surfaces.
Excellent traction on all types of terrain
The Trango Tech GTX is equipped with a low-volume Cube outsole. This component is the result of a collaboration between La Sportiva and Vibram. It has a pattern of multi-shaped lugs across its profile to give traction over virtually all types of terrain.
Optimize braking power during a descent
The sole’s front tip features a Climbing Zone for added control in uphill conditions. It is also equipped with an Impact Brake System to optimize braking power during a descent.
Comfortable and shock reduction cushioning
Mountaineers are supplied with cushioning and shock reduction by the La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX’s low-density PU midsole. It is covered in protective PU skin for durability. A thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) insert is positioned in the rear. This component allows crampons to be attached to this mountaineering boot.
Excellent arch suport
The Trango Tech GTX’s 4mm polyphenylene ether (PPE) insole has increased thickness in its middle zone. This design supplies the wearer with arch support and extra comfort underfoot.
This La Sportiva boot-type product features a synthetic QB3 waterproof fabric upper with Thermo Tech Injection. The latter refers to a thermoplastic material over-injected to the upper to reduce its overall weight and minimize seams. Moreover, the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane lines the upper to provide both water protection and breathability.
Excellent ankle support
The La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX (men’s and women’s) uses the brand’s patented 3D Flex System. It allows the user’s ankle to move more freely without compromising support on uneven terrain. The boot’s front end is reinforced with a rand for added protection from bumps. Its ergonomic tongue gives comfort while preventing debris from entering the footgear.
Easy to wear
The boot’s lace closure employs a series of metal hooks, loop hooks, and fabric eyelets. These components allow the wearer to manage the fit. A pull-tab is located at the back of the collar to facilitate easy on and off.
