OASI

Ultimately versatile

When we started on ‘project OASI’ we wanted to create a curved shoe that works as well on friction slabs and vertical walls as it does on overhanging routes and boulder problems, and to achieve this we had to re-think our whole design process and invent new technologies. The final result is a shoe of stunning precision as well as exceptional comfort. Its design and system of construction lets the heel sit lower while climbing and is superbly responsive to every situation, relaying detailed information back to the user in any situation.

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.

velcro closure system
DRAXTOR
Tenaya’s patented closure system is unique. It’s so precise, so quick and easy to use and provides independent tension control over different parts of the shoe. Once the user has configured the system to their specific requirements they will never need to waste time on adjustment again.

PERFORMANCE AERIAL PLUS LINE

The OASI’s aggressively curved form responds to every subtle movement of the foot. To further enhance this we have created RBRX — a new technology which works seamlessly with our SXR Dynamics system, giving you greater contact with the rock over a range of movements.

SO COMFORTABLE THAT ALL YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT IS CLIMBING

The first time you try the OASI you’ll realize that it’s something completely different. Despite its curved form the OASI is superbly comfortable — more so than many flat rock shoes — allowing you to climb all day without even thinking about pain.
