The Swiss company founded in 1862 and specialising in the manufacture of mountaineering and climbing equipment (which operates in 40 countries and employs more than 720 people) has tested the new pieces dedicated to climbing with its athletes Dani Arnold (Swiss) and Tatsuya Aoki (Japan). The first demonstrated his skills by setting speed records on the Eiger and Matterhorn, while the latter was the youngest person (at only 21 years of age) to stand on the summit of the infamous K2. For the first time together, the two climbed the southern wall of the Poncione d’Alnasca (the Swiss mountain from which the Mammut collection takes its name) to test the safety and reliability of the new climbing products. The two athletes free climbed the “Impronte d’Orso in una Storia Infinita” route in just 4 hours. For the approach, they used the new Mammut Alnasca Knit Low shoe.
Mammut Alnasca Knit Low
The new Alnasca Knit Low model combines the most advanced technology in the construction of the upper with proven components. The elastic sock design is made from a modern 3D-knitted material and means that the shoe fits perfectly and precisely to the foot, minimising the formation of blisters.
The protection from sharp rocks and scree is ensured by abrasion-proof materials present on the upper and rubber toe.
The technology present on the sole is just as interesting: the Michelin® Rock Tech sole made from OCX rubber and the damping wedge in Soft Tech EVA on the heel area support walking comfort and grip on a wide range surfaces.
