When time is your enemy, speed is your friend. Speed out in the mountains is not just a concern for top athletes. In particular, when climbing in technically demanding terrain, “speed = safety” is the golden rule. With the Nordwand Light Mid GTX® Men, we have developed the lightest fully crampon-compatible boot in the Mammut range. A large elastic zone in the tongue and entry area come together with the elastic lining and outer fabric to provide increased comfort. Our tried-and-tested Mammut Base Fit 2.0® technology with doubled heel straps prevents pressure points. At the heart of the innovative masterpiece is a patented insole with a carbon midsole. As well as making the Nordwand Light Mid GTX® Men extremely light, it also allows extreme precision and a sure-footed step. What’s more, for the first time and exclusively for Mammut, MICHELIN® Technical Soles has developed a mountaineering sole. The MICHELIN® Alpine Lite 3970 sole transfers the rubber specialists’ tire expertise to high alpine terrain. It is up to 40% lighter than conventional soles, features a larger climbing zone for better grip on side approaches and a clearly defined lug tread, making it ideal for use in high alpine terrain, in winter and on mixed tours.
