DOLOMITE Crodarossa Lite GTX 2.0 Gear News

The Crodarossa Lite GTX 2.0 is a lightweight mountain approach shoe, meant for those who looks for the maximum freedom of movement while accessing climbing.

RANGE OF USE: Best for Approach and Scrambling

Crafted with a breathable Superfabric® upper, 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. It features a foot-wrapping fit which guarantees a high precision and control to the wearer, especially on uneven and rocky terrains.

The new Vibram® Crossover bottom in Megagrip rubber compound ensures unparalleled grip on wet and dry surfaces, providing at the same time an optimal balance of stability and flexibility when adapting to the ground. Fully waterproof, it lastly features a slipknot lacing system, which makes this shoe easy and fast to wear.

Slightly entertained that the weight is not included in a press release about a product where the light weight is considered to be a major feature 😂

Nonetheless, I looked it up and it's 880g for a mid-size i.e. UK8/42.

Actually similar to the TX4 GTX so considering it looks fairly robust it seems like a reasonable weight. Seems slightly out of place in the Fast/Light category considering the major players are in the 500-600g range - this looks to me to be more like a competitor for the workhorses such as TX4/Mescalito etc.

Will there be a UKC test? I want to see Toby thrash them around the Cuillins 😎

Ha ha! I actually bought myself some quite similar looking ones from the Rock and Run sample sale this winter on the basis of being impressed with the Dolomite boots I've UKC reviewed over the last few years. So can't say anything about these but the last year's model that looks similar seem quite good so far. It's remarkably tough material they are using.

Nice. It actually looks very similar to the woven material Hanwag are using on their newer stuff.
