>The combination of STEALTH Rubber's state-of-the-art research and development department and Five Ten's extensive professional athlete test team has led to more than a quarter decade of cutting edge rubber compounds
5.10 appear to have cutting edge rubber since 2011. All previous rubbers were shoddy.
I had to re-read the sentence twice.
is stealth rubber, like 5.10, also owned by adidas, or independant of that?
Stealth is IP of Five.ten, so I would imagine it would be included in the sale of five.ten
Really? So all that period when the 5.10 Pink was the first-choice of many of the top climbers and used for many cutting-edge ascents was all done on shoddy rubber?
Agreed - 5:10 rubber has been at the top of their game for much longer than 2 years IMO!
Since at least 1998, as I remember buying some Five Tens then and being utterly amazed at how sticky they were compared to Boreal shoes.
Convinced me to get a pair of 5.10 rock boots when my Jokers give up.
