The Crodarossa Lite GTX is designed for approach and scrambling and features an overlap fastening which allows very precise and close-fitting lacing. The upper utilises Superfabric®, a technical material obtained by moulding onto a high-toughness fabric base tiny ultra-resistant plates which give it outstanding resistance to shearing and abrasion.
The elasticised insock wraps the foot completely, ensuring precision and full control for each movement.
RANGE OF USE: Mountain approach on short distance / Scrambling
SIZE: UK 4-12
FIT: Close Fit
FLEX INDEX: FLEX (sits between our soft and medium rated flex insoles)
