Torque LV

  • Designed and built on a hand-shaped, downturned last by Fred Nicole, TORQUE LV features a durable and comfortable, unlined vegan microsuede upper with an elastic integrated tongue and pulltab. The shape of the toe is ideal for precise footwork. The rubber is thick enough to feel stable but thin enought to maintain sensitivity. The fishhook midsole is composed of a proprietary pressed fiberboard. The unique single strap velcro closure gives you the freedom to change the direction of tension from ankle to mid-foot area to the base of the forefoot. The outsole is split and features Vibram XS GRIP rubber for durability while including generous toe/heel rubber coverage. The heel rubber extends to the top of the shoe. The unique width of the heel rubber enables this are to have the perfect balance of rigidity for maintaining solid heel hooks while allowing sensitivity and just enough flex. TORQUE LV is ideal for outdoor/indoor bouldering needs - specifically large volume climbing as well as sport climbing and steeper terrain like it's counterpart TORQUE RV.

Create/Design

We’ve spent the last two years (and maybe a little longer) concepting, designing, and sampling with Fred Nicole – a true climbing hero and expert in the field.

Refining

Non-stop meetings with Fred, including joining him in Switzerland, as well as factory visits during line production and frequent, in-depth communication with our manufacturers were imperative to ensure all the details were there.

Testing

It was important to get the technical aspects spot on whether you’re climbing indoors, competing, or out in the elements. Our new shoes models have endured rigorous testing from indoor and outdoor climbers.
