Good to know
- Lowa’s Weisshorn GTX is a single-boot, technical mountaineering gear with a split-grain leather upper. It has a waterproof liner supplied by Gore-Tex.
- The high-cut collar of the boot is built with the Flexfit-Synchro technology. It gives the stiff ankle shaft a decent amount of flex to improve the user’s mobility.
- Cushioning and surefootedness over especially rocky terrain are granted by the DuraPU midsole, while traction on various surfaces is given by the resolable Vibram Dolent. Resolable means that the outsole can be replaced with a new one.
The Lowa Weisshorn GTX is an over-the-ankle climbing footgear offered for both male and female mountaineers. Both versions come in standard width in a range of whole and half sizes. The women’s version is crafted using a female-specific last. The boot’s closure system, which features the I-Lock mechanism, and together with the FlexFit-Synchro technology, provides a personalized fit from top to bottom.
With its Vibram Dolent outsole, the Weisshorn GTX is serious to provide traction where it counts. Its profile features aggressive lugs with self-cleaning properties. It is also designed to give climbers the ability to make precise foot placements for edging stability.
The Lowa Weisshorn GTX’s DuraPU midsole is responsible for the user’s underfoot cushioning and shock protection. It comes with a flexible yet stabilizing shank called Hard Winter (with I-Core). In addition, it is engineered with heel and forefoot notches, making the boot compatible with automatic (step-in) crampons.
Supplementary to the footwear’s overall comfort is the Insulate Pro Footbed. As its name suggests, it also has thermal insulation, thanks to the Gore-Tex Duratherm technology.
Split-grain leather makes up the majority of the Weisshorn GTX’s upper. It is infused with a Gore-Tex liner for waterproofing. Its ankle zone, which features the Flexfit-Synchro, is made of an elastic, synthetic material. Its base has a high-wall rubber rand for bump and abrasion protection. This alpine trekking gear also has a pair of tongues—the inner tongue may be adjusted or removed, while the outer tongue is gusseted for debris protection.
The boot’s closure system consists of synthetic laces and (mostly) metallic lace hooks and loops. It includes the I-Lock—a pair of lace loops that, when pushed in, enable users to have a separate lacing configuration for the boot’s upper shaft.
