Reviews from the UKC editorial team

Tenaya Mastia

The Mastia is a good all-round performance rock shoe with a varied focus, says Rob Greenwood, ranging from overhanging sport to bouldering on rock types which require that little bit of extra sensitivity.

Micro Cams

Micro cams are among the most useful pieces of gear on a trad climber's rack. Having a tiny cam you can rely on to protect otherwise unprotectable sections of rock can make the difference between arriving at the top of your route... or at the bottom. However their tiny size...

Large Bouldering Mats

Biggest isn't always best, but in bouldering it certainly has its place. Larger pads are ideal for higher problems, awkward landings, or anyone with lower limb niggles - but on the other hand they're less ideal when it comes to storing or carrying them. Here we...

Tenaya Mundaka

Tenaya Mastia

When we conceived the new Mastia we wanted not only to create an aggressively curved shoe that delivered maximum power for standing on tiny holds, but also one which provided unrivalled responsiveness in all situations. More powerful, more responsive, this is the essence...
