RED CHILI RUBBER COMPOUNDS
For the RX-1 ALLROUND sole, the name says it all. It offers particularly balanced properties between friction, sensitivity, durability and edge stability.
If you are looking for high edge stability, you cannot beat the RX-2 TECHGRIP. It is pleasantly stiff and optimally supports standing on small footholds.
When durability is needed, the RX-3 ENDURANCE comes into play. This rubber compound stands out for its excellent longevity and relatively high edge stability. Our clear recommendation espe-cially for the indoor season.
With the XS Grip rubber compound Vibram offers an outsole, which is specially tailored to the needs of ambitious climbers and athletes. It features high friction and at the same time allows a good sensitivity when stepping on small footholds.
RED CHILI MIDSOLES
Our latest technological development, the RC-FLEX was optimized using CAD software to answer the needs of our athletes. For the first time, we introduced lateral cuts in the mid - sole to provide sensitivity while smearing and climbing on volumes. The cuts were specifically designed to offer flexibility without reducing the support of the midsole while standing on small edges. The result is a midsole which can adapt to all forms of high-end climbing, from precise edging to parkour bouldering.
The RC-TENSION was specifically developed for our VOLTAGE family to offer optimal support on small foot holds and in overhanging terrain. Slightly stiffer than the RC-FLEX, this midsole is great for precision climbing and longer routes where the feet need more support.
The RC-SUPPORT is a full-length midsole that we use in our comfort and performance shoes. This is the most supportive midsole in our range. It provides beginners and intermediate climbers with a very stable feeling while standing on any type of foothold.
