Who should buy the Tecnica Magma
Also known as the Magma S, this multi-use Tecnica hiking shoe can turn the odds in your favor where variable terrain is involved. The following individuals are part of its target audience:
- Outdoorsy men and women who are transitioning from trail running to hiking. Its rockered sole unit and flat-yet-angled lugs make sprinting (in short bursts) on level terrain comfy and safe.
- Adventurers who hike in dry conditions. The Magma has high breathability in place of moisture protection, and its outsole favors dusty tracks.
- Trail-goers who need personalized underfoot support. The Magma’s footbed is thermo-transformable.
The Tecnica Magma can be heat-molded to make its confines conform to the shape of your feet. This process results in the shoe giving a personalized hug, eliminating break-in time and preventing heel-lift.
Versatile surface traction
While not a pair of approach shoes, the Magma’s Vibram outsole has lugs that make scrambling feel natural. Their low-profile design also provides sufficient slip resistance on man-made surfaces.
Designed with a dove-tail heel zone, the Tecnica Magma doubles down on rearfoot stability. The same heel also makes transitions more fluid, particularly on level ground.
A conqueror on mild ascents
On top of the Magma’s sticky Vibram outsole, the shoe has enhanced flexibility and sensitivity underfoot. This combination delivers surefootedness on low-level climbs, particularly on scree.
