INTI

Same direction

Inspired by our RA model, a shoe used by elite climbers on some of the most difficult and demanding routes in the world. Like other models in our ‘Balance Pro’ line, the INTI is designed to achieve outstanding performance and unrivalled versatility. Slightly softer than its predecessor, the INTI is nevertheless excellent on small edges, while its frictional properties are even further enhanced, making this the perfect shoe for vertical and slightly overhanging routes and boulder problems. When making the first ever 9a on-sight ascent, Alex had to climb completely naturally but with millimetre precision. In order to achieve this Alex opted to wear the INTI. It met his every requirement, providing maximum contact with the rock and superb, dynamic feedback on his foot placements, move after move after move.

Rigidity
More rigid and structured shoes,more power can be transmitted to the rock.

Sensitivity
The more sensitive a shoe is, the more information gets transferred to the climber about the shape and the characteristics of the foot holds , giving a sensation of closer contact with the rock.

Foot width response
This is the capacity of the shoe to adapt to the width of your foot. This capacity is not only determinate by the width of the sole, in some cases a shoe with a narrow sole displays a great capacity to adapt to a wider foot.

SXR Dynamics
Technology that increases the dynamic response of the shoe improving its ability to adapt to different rock shapes and greater precision and comfort.
RBRX
Technology that improves the balance between all the performance of the shoe achieving a greater range of response and greater performance in very different situations.
More advantages
  • Incredible precision on every kind of foothold, from micro-edges to tenuous slopers.
  • Superb performance yet very comfortable.
  • Wide opening tongue for ease and speed of putting on and removing.
  • Precise adjustment system. Perfectly balanced structure between softness and rigidity, meaning the foot moves only where you need it to.
  • Rubber reinforced toe-box for increased abrasion resistance and superior toe-hooking.
  • Micro-layer insole for the perfect distribution of force.
Recommended use
Vertical and moderately overhanging routes. Equally suited to bouldering.

More control and precision

The INTI’s asymmetric profile allows the toes to get right to the end of the shoe, giving fantastic precision and maximum transmission of power through to the rock. This is further enhanced by the V-shaped Velcro closure system and bellow tongue, which permits rapid fitting and removal. 4mm of rubber and a five-micro-layer insole are the only things between your feet and the rock, providing superb ‘feel’ when fractioning up blank slabs, while the U-shaped midsole gives just the right amount of stiffness when the rock gets a little steeper.

More sensitive

The precision adjustability provided by the SXR Dynamics system gives greater freedom of movement, augmenting the INTI’s capacity to adapt to many different intricacies and formations in the rock. The horseshoe-shaped mid-sole is stiff around the edges but softer in the middle, providing ample support on smaller holds but not so much that its smearing properties are adversely affected.
