New and Notable: Kayland Hyper Traction – 2010 Gear Guide
- STIFF STUFF
The Kayland Vaporlite Midsole is comprised of a variable-density EVA layer and a full-length injected TPU layer, making for a rigid boot than offers powerful edging support and crampon control. The ECT (Engineered Carbon Technology) Traction composite insole ups stiffness (and toughness) even more.
- GAITOR DONE
The Hyper Traction’s insulating gaitor employs a Schoeller® waterproofing treatment and a RIRI Aquazip closure in the front, plus a Velcro top flap, to keep your feet dry and warm in the gnarliest conditions.
- LOCK DOWN
The Hyper Traction’s lacing system uses a band that circles the ankle and anchors to the laces (Kayland calls this the Ankle Lock System), allowing you to lock down your foot without compromising ankle mobility.
