Going high? Climbing hard?
Heading to extremely cold regions? The new
G1 LITE gives you warmth and climbing performance
plus plenty of versatility and the choice
of the type and weight of gaiter you use.
Keep it simple for day outings and technical
routes and boost warmth - for the coldest
of the cold - with an INSULATED SUPERGAITER.
Lighter weight is achieved by utilization
of water proof Dynatec upper with Lorica
and carbon-glass reinforcements. Total weather
protection is afforded by Sympatex - a textile
fully waterproof yet breathable across it's
entire surface. Result - drier socks and
Inner boot is a sandwich of 6mm of micro-porous
EVA foam insulation with Sympatex in the
middle and durable inner cordura face. Underfoot,
1.4 mm of Neoprene (perforated for breathability
and shock absorption) plus 10 mm of EVA
foam insulation back the extra-rigid technical
performance midsole. Connecting you to the
earth or any crampon is Boreal's MOUNT FDS-3
outsole with triple density co-molded rubber
for the right combination of traction, shock
absorption and durability.
The G1L's inner boot is slip lasted (just
like rock shoes) with waterproof split leather
on collar and tongue, a padded Achilles
with adjustable velcro-elastic strap (for
heel retention) plus a unique raised heel
that keys into a corresponding cavity in
the floor of the outer boot. Materials include
a durable Cordura outer, W/B Sympatex, Thinsulate
for warmth and an efficient wicking Dry
Line inner surface.
Sizing: If a US 10.5 fits well in a hiking
boot, then order a UK 10 for a similar fit.
