COMPETITION: WINNERS - Win 1 of 3 Pairs of the NEW Scarpa Mago

The new and improved Mago is a part of the Scarpa's 'Sharp Line', a range of climbing shoes that are designed to give both precision and power.

Mago, 50 kb

Concentrating power on the big toe, this line of shoes gives the climber focussed power on small footholds, with varying levels of sensitivity in each model. Intended for high level climbing on any angle, where the use of small footholds is paramount.

Reinforced with an intricate stitch pattern and TPS midsole, the Mago dominates small footholds like no other shoe. It features an asymmetrical and downturned last, with a high angled toe box to concentrate power on the big toe - thus making it the ultimate tool for precision climbing.

Technology

Upper: Multi-panel upper (5) for the best custom moulding fit. Combination of suede and microfiber, with laces extending to the toe for large volume adjustment. Stitching reinforcement to support the upper.

X-Tension Randing, 32 kb

Active Randing: X-Tension active randing system keeps the shape of the shoe over its life time. The power is focussed on the big toe, whilst continuing to maintain support for the arch and forefoot.

Sole: 3.5mm 1/3 length XS Grip 2 for excellent flexibility

My apologies; saw the "slot" and immediately thought you were on Wrinkled Wall but I can now see (from looking at photos) that you were round the other side on Jasmine. My mistake :-( Post edited at 07:33
