Needle Sports said: "A great Scottish winter and alpine climbing boot that also should be OK for winter alpine climbing as along as it's not too baltic and would be OK for greater ranges use up to ca 6000m.
The new and innovative construction method has been developed after two years of collaborative field and laboratory testing in partnership with Gore-Tex. The first layer applies a Gore-Tex membrane to both the gaiter and the Cordura shell while the second layer uses a Gore-Tex insulated comfort layer for the inner bootie. Sportiva say that this solution guarantees the best possible combination of waterproof, breathability and thermal insulation properties. A new carbon underfoot with a honeycomb construction gives form and lightens the midsole package.
"The Batura 2.0 Gore-Tex is the greatest step forward in extreme mountaineering footwear," says Simone Moro, official product tester, during the first winter ascent of Gasherbrum II (not that we'd recommend them for use on Gasherbrum II).
Gaiter: protective outer shell in abrasion resistant and stretch Cordura® + additional stretch layer to protect the Gore-Tex® membrane + Gore-Tex® Insulated Comfort + mesh laminated to the membrane. Internal shell: Four layer insulation structure + single layer stretch fabric tongue with microfibre reinforcements. Lining: Gore-Tex® Insulated Comfort. Underfoot: Honeycomb Tech 3mm insulating carbon Midsole: Crampon compatible, 2mm polyurethane midsole. Sole: Vibram® with Impact Brake System.
Weight: 1800g per pair approximately.
NB In our view the Batura is suitable for winter climbing anywhere in Europe or North America and expedition use up to around 6000m."
just a quick one, are these with a standard lacing system or the BOA ( wire )
Lacing. There's a nifty lock system half way up the lacing so you can have the top and bottom halves laced to different tensions.
