Excellent grip on tricky backcountry surfaces

Granting wearers the right amount of grip on tricky backcountry surfaces is the TR1 Trek’s non-marking G.15 outsole. Its aggressive lugs, with a depth of 5 mm, get to claw into soft-soiled terrain, delivering ample slip and skid resistance in virtually every angle.
