Who should buy the Black Diamond Momentum Vegan
The Black Diamond Momentum Vegan is a competent quiver addition, thanks to its array of climb-worthy pros. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a climbing shoe that is designed for climbers who wish to move in an airy kind of comfort.
- Prefer a climbing shoe that offers enhanced breathability.
- Prefer a climbing shoe that is designed for sports routes, boulder-type ascents, and slab projects.
Downturn. The BD Momentum Vegan is a neutral rock climbing shoe. The absence of any meaningful downward camber in this gear translates to comfortable multi-pitch climbs. Its flat and mildly stiff forefoot also allows wearers to mount on edges with relative ease.
Applications. Sport routes, boulder-type ascents, and slab projects are the types of climbs for which this all-around piece is designed. The softness of its construction makes it suitable for entry-level climbers. Owners may use it both indoors and outdoors.
A below-the-ankle rock shoe for men and women is the Black Diamond Momentum Vegan. Thanks to the Engineered Knit Technology, stretch only occurs where needed. This is a straight-lasted shoe, which means its interior will allow the foot to lie comfortably flat (not bending inward) within its confines. A secure lockdown in it is courtesy of the shoe’s Velcro strapping system.
A one-piece molded outsole is the Momentum Vegan’s source of underfoot surface grip.
Excellent heel-hooking grip
It is a fully rubberized component, having a thickness of 4.3 mm. Its rear end extends all the way up to the shoe’s heel to give climbers extra heel-hooking grip.
The BD Momentum Vegan comes equipped with a hard-wearing midsole for climbing support. BD engineers gave it a soft-flex construction to enhance its sensitivity.
They also paired it with a footbed made of hemp for added comfort underfoot.
Synthetic and vegan-friendly
The completely synthetic and vegan-friendly low-top shell of this Black Diamond piece is made of knit fabric (also known as Engineered Knit Technology). Its inner walls are lined with microfiber for added comfort.
Easy to wear
A pair of pull loops are firmly stitched to its heel to make slipping in and out of the shoe easier and quicker.
Provides protection against abrasion
Both its forefoot and heel are sufficiently randed to give senders increased sticking power around tricky projections and adequate protection from abrasive hazards.
Adjustable hook-and-loop fasteners
Completing the equation of the Momentum Vegan’s breathable upper is its fit management system. It consists of two sturdy straps made adjustable with hook-and-loop fasteners. Each strap is looped through a beveled buckle, which is made of a material akin to hard plastic.
