The Italian company offers a new, distinctive feature for its tools, designed to meet the needs of everyone looking for an experience of instinctive climbing.

La Sportiva, a leading company in the sector of technical equipment for outdoor sports, refines No-Edge®, exclusive technology resulting from years of research and development, offered to all sport climbing enthusiasts who want to enjoy a vertical experience in the most fluid and natural way possible.

A cutting-edge feature proposed by the Trentino company, to satisfy the needs of the most demanding climbers, looking for even more intimate contact with the wall, thanks to increased sensitivity and precise perception of even the most complex support points.

The reduced layer of rubber and the absence of edges lessen the distance between the foot and the climbing surface, giving an unprecedented sensation of naturalness and fluidity. Greater safety, comfort and sensitivity are the essential features of this equipment, designed to satisfy the most exacting expectations, and provide an alternative to traditional shoes. In fact, tools equipped with No-Edge® technology are modelled on the shape of the foot. The rounded edges and the improved contact surface guarantee uniform and close grip on the rock, both in the static and dynamic phases, thus allowing natural and precise climbing.

These shoes are produced through a unique combination of manufacturing experience and craftsmanship, the secrets of which are guarded at the Ziano di Fiemme, headquarters, the beating heart of La Sportiva. This innovation is a testament not only to the expertise and know-how for which the brand is known, but also the care applied to the manufacture of each individual shoe, making each one a concrete and tangible symbol of  the passion of those who live amongst the mountains and care for them just as they do for their own home.

No-Edge®, which integrates and enriches the brand’s catalogue with a solution that gives climbers a feeling of optimal control, has seen a relaunch of the models Genius, Future and Mantras, in addition to the introduction of Mandala, the most supportive and performance-oriented tool of the entire range.
