Whether it’s to train your endurance, your muscles or simply enjoy life in the open air, hiking is becoming increasingly popular. To respond to the enthusiasts of this discipline, Columbia Sportswear offers the new KONOS collection, consisting of 6 different models, built on a new adaptive cushioning platform called Omni-Max, which guarantees greater stability and traction. In terms of cushioning, the reactive foam offers enhanced impact absorption, energy return and comfort. Stability, on the other hand, is provided by the deflection domes and flex grooves, which reduce the impact of the load and improve the flexibility and natural movement of the foot. Finally, as far as traction is concerned, special compounds and tread patterns ensure transversal grip on dry or wet surfaces, thanks to the combination of some of Columbia’s best proprietary technologies, such as TECHLITE+ and ADAPT TRAX for the TRS version. Finally, the upper design and construction offer the right level of comfort, durability and foot protection, combined with OUTDRY™ breathable and waterproof technologies.
