Who should buy the Asolo 6B+ GV
The 6B+ GV’s excellence on almost all fronts gives it an edge against competitors. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that gives mountaineers the capability to ascend elevations in biting conditions.
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that offers a waterproof and insulated upper.
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that has a quick lacing system.
Excellent traction on extremely rugged surfaces
First in line to receive the assault of the mountainous terrain is the 6B+ GV’s rubber outsole, called Vibram Vertical. This component—a resulting product of Asolo’s partnership with Vibram—promises traction on extremely rugged surfaces, all thanks to its sticky construction and aggressively designed lugs.
Provides additional descent security
It has a hook-like feature (a.k.a heel brake) that grants mountaineers additional descent security.
This boot uses a stiff yet cushy midsole for underfoot comfort and ground stability. It is equipped with PU inserts, one at the heel and another at the forefoot, for extra shock absorption. For added cushioning and support, on the other hand, this stabilizing layer is paired with the Lite 3 anatomic footbed.
The Asolo 6B+ GV’s over-the-ankle upper is a combination of microfiber and water-resistant Schoeller textile.
Provides adequate warmth and breathability
Its liner is crafted with Gore-Tex’s Insulated Comfort technology, granting wearers protection from the elements with adequate warmth and breathability.
The lower region of the boot is covered with an abrasion-resistant rubber rand which is integrated with the sturdy and supportive Heel Locking element.
Most of the boot’s eyelets are riveted hooks and loops made of metal, except for the fabric ones located at the ankle zone. The laces making their way through these combination eyelets are synthetic.
- This mountaineering gear can be equipped with automatic (step-in) crampons.
