Who should buy the Mad Rock Remora

The Mad Rock Remora is a downturned rock shoe built for senders who require an all-around kind of climbing performance. It is recommended for: 

  • climbers who want a partly soft, partly sturdy construction for adequate security on their ascents.
  • outdoor adventurers who prefer a vegan-friendly rock climbing shoe.
  • individuals who want optimal surface traction.

Mad Rock designed the Remora with a moderate downturn

The Remora from Mad Rock comes with a moderately downward camber. With it, users can mount on projections, like edges and nubbins, with enough security and precision. Comfort in such a shoe can last multiple ascents in one go.

Mad Rock’s Remora sticky outsole

What stands between the foot and the surface in the Remora is a sticky outsole called Science Friction 3.0. It provides multi-directional slip resistance, whether on gym walls or rocky terrain. Mad Rock designers gave it a single-piece construction with an overall thickness of 4.2 millimeters.

The Mad Rock Remora’s comfy upper, also known as Syn Flex, is purely synthetic.

It comes with triple the pull loops to expedite on and off. Both its heel and forefoot zones are engineered with R2 rubber—another company-exclusive tech—for sufficient surface traction in and around wall or rock features.

The lower part of its instep also has a sticky rubber patch to make toe hooks as secure of a maneuver as possible.

As a slip-on, the Remora does not come with a standard lace-up closure. Instead, it uses elastic gore or stretchy panels to keep the foot snugly in place.Mad Rock Remora synthetic rubber closure
