Designed for aggressive approaches and long trail days, the Acrux FL GTX delivers durable performance with the weather protection and custom comfort of an Adaptive Fit GORE-TEX liner. The liner stretches to conform to the foot, providing a level of fit not achievable with traditional construction. The construction also improves breathability and helps eliminate pressure and hot spots. Made from a quick drying PU coated nylon textile, the upper is a seamless single piece utilizing thermolaminated construction to create a smooth, uninterrupted surface thats lighter in weight, exceptionally abrasion resistant, and not subject to failure at seams. The injected EVA midsole is designed and moulded to work in tandem with the outsole for superior braking on descents and agility on the move. Three dimensional toe and heel caps protect the foot and further extend the shoes durability.
THE ARCTERYX ADAPTIVE FIT ADVANTAGE
Arcteryx Technical Performance Footwear employs Adaptive Fit, an exclusive design featuring a separate internal liner that delivers best fit adaptability, improved breathability and more complete weather protection. The Acrux FL GTXs Adaptive Fit liners are made from a stretch GORE-TEX that provides waterproof/breathable protection, full foot cushioning, and conforms to any foot shape. Using this liner construction also allows the GORE-TEX membrane to extend to the very top edge of the cuff. This puts it considerably higher than traditional constructions, further increasing waterproof/breathable protection.
ARCTERYX FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGIES THE VIBRAM ARCTERYX APPROACH OUTSOLE
Approaches bring mixed terrain and rapid shifts in topography. Surefootedness is essential, but the variety of surfaces encountered used to mean sacrificing one performance aspect to provide another. Unwilling to compromise, Arcteryx partnered with Vibram to create an approach sole that meets the variety of conditions without sacrificing ease of stride on flats or durability over the long haul. At the forefoot, a climbing area with traction grooves delivers superior hold on slick rock or granite. A smearing zone under the ball of the foot adds another level of frictive grip, and anti slip lugs hold fast on hard surfaces. The spherical heel is designed for a smooth, stable stride on flats and has an integrated Y groove for superior braking on steep descents.
