In the summer of 2016 Dachstein will be introducing the new-fit Super Ferrata – especially designed for via ferrata adventures. The snug fit of Dachstein’s Super Ferrata is also a pioneering development.
In contrast to the loose-tongue construction of conventional shoes, it is attached to the lining along the entire length of the tongue – like a sock.Dachstein worked together exclusively with Vibram® to develop the Pinter sole especially for via ferratas.
The lightweight PU midsole reinforces the main sole, while also absorbing shocks for stable and energy-saving progress on the rock face. It has a longer life than the conventional EVA soles otherwise commonly used for these purposes. It remains sturdy, even after numerous tours in rocky terrain. The Dachstein uppers combine robust and highly durable Perwang velour leather with Cordura mesh.
The via ferrata shoe is also equipped with a DryDS membrane and is watertight and breathable. For steep sections of the rock climb there are TPU plastic reinforced toecaps to prevent damage.
