The Scarpa Chimera features a rubber-wrapped toe area, a multi-panel upper, an aggressively downturned profile and an asymmetrical shape with full-length off-set lace closure. The shoe’s PCB-Tension™ active rand directly transfers power to the big toe which is ideal for steep overhangs. In addition, it has a TPS insert which provides the necessary underfoot support and edging power required on vertical terrain with smaller footholds.
The Chimera’s asymmetric lacing system together with the SRT structural toe-wrap improves the climbers’ toe-hooking capabilities while the Vibram® XS Grip2 sole makes the shoe stick like glue. All in all, this climbing shoe is suitable for sport climbing on different terrains and on various angles.
