For more than two decades, Obe Carrion-the first Mad Rock Athlete-has injected his urban attitude into climbing culture.
Throughout capturing multiple championships, sending high-level problems, and coaching top youth climbers, Obe still identifies himself as an inner-city kid. And that means status equates to a sick pair of kicks.
ARCH FLEX - By utilizing 1.8mm thick R2 rand rubber formula, the Arch Flex system gives our high performance shoes and unbelievable comfortable, but glove-like fit. The elastic property in our R2 formula hugs and locks your foot into place without the pain associated with other high performance shoes.
SILICON FRAME - Unique two way stretch framing technology provides a dynamic fit for all different varieties of foot shapes. Also helps to maintain the non-stretch aspects of the upper material for maximum performance.
PERFORATED TEK FLEX - Our latest upper material provides great breathability along with a little give compared to the original non-stretch fabric.
HEEL CLUTCH - Constructed with super sticky rubber, our latest heel tensioning system for the Redline gives you unparalleled sensitivity along with enough power for any heel hook. The molded heel piece is connected to the lacing system which provides control over volume and tension.
SPIRAL LAST - Down-turned, cambered, rotated and twisted to place your feet into the best position to get the most out of your rock shoes.
POWER TAPE - Reduces the bulging issue found in down-turned climbing shoes by preventing the rand rubber from overstretching.
PATENT CONCAVE SOLE - Mad Rock's innovative and patented Concave Sole allows climbers to utilize their feet as they would their hands. Concave soles are optimal for grabbing at holds while climbing on overhangs, and also help to create a sharper edge and better support for standing on tiny holds and edges.
