LOWA <br /> Alpine SL GTX® <br /> Summer 2019

Every athletic alpinist knows that one gram too much in weight sooner or later is that one gram too many to carry along on demanding tours on alpine terrain. Lightness and a perfect performance on the mountain are for many athletes the highest demand. To precisely satisfy this demand, the new ALPINE SL GTX® has been reduced to the essentials. That resulted in an athletic, extremely lightweight pro outdoor boot that tips the scales at just 550 grams.

Every detail in this new concept of an alpine boot was perfected by working together with extreme mountaineer David Göttler. For example, the protective PU rand is sprayed on the durable synthetic material. To shave even more weight, a stiff insole made of carbon plus an extremely light Vibram® Alp Trac® SL outsole are also integrated. Nevertheless, this athletic alpine boot offers top stability. Soft neoprene gaiters, the two-zone lacing system, and a waterproof GORE-TEX® lining make this colourful eye-catcher a truly athletic alpinist.

True to the slogan, ‘Less is more’, this superlight alpine boot offers top performance on the mountain: Reduced to the bare essentials, the ALPINE SL GTX® not only pushes the limits of what is possible, but also the goals of its wearer.
