The Cruzer is an incredibly light shoe (218g) which treads the line between a lightweight approach shoe and an outright rock shoe. Soled with high friction rubber, the Cruzer will climb classic routes in style or is equally at home clipped to your harness during pitches until ready for the descent. The flip down heel allows you to belay in comfort or just kick back at the camp fire at the end of a long day. The Cruzer was named Editors Choice by UC Magazine's 2012 Gear guide shining at “scrambling, descents, short approaches and in between burns”.
