Arc’teryx has just released its new Acrux LT GTX Boot, an ideal choice for spring and summer climbing expeditions. The design of this stiff boot is focused on providing exceptional alpine climbing precision. The lightweight Acrux LT GTX boot weighs in at just under 1.5 pounds. With its carefully tuned carbon midsole plate, the Acrux LT GTX mountaineering boot offers a difference in climbing performance by providing a confident grip over changing conditions. Reviewers of the boot have touted it to be “lightweight, waterproof, and grippy.” This is about the best description of a climbing boot one could ask for.
The boot’s flexible SuperFabric® upper micro-plate technology delivers outstanding abrasion resistance. A gusseted tongue helps minimize debris collection while the compressed EVA midsole provides lasting cushion and support. The rubber toe cap has been 3D molded. Lace lock and extended lacing are both incorporated to help hold the wearer’s feet in place while the chassis has a 3mm full-length carbon plate with PU foam core to provide stiffness. The boots incorporate GORE-TEX material which provides enhanced waterproof and breathable performance. Additionally, the Arc’teryx Acrux LT GTX boots are semi-automatic crampon compatible.
