The Talon is designed for a specific purpose, to climb steep and overhanging terrain - and it is very good at its job! The downturned toe creates maximum power and precision at the front of the shoe and allows you to hook your toe into holds when things get way past vertical. The rubber covering of the top of the toe allows you to hook your toe behind holds to give you a good, solid toe hook and the heel is well designed with just enough rubber to allow you to get a sensitive yet well protected heel hook.
Also available, a range of technical Mammut shoes in smaller sizes for only £40!
