La Sportiva Trango Cube GTX – Kryptek Highlander Coming In July

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

We first saw the Trango Cube GTX from La Sportiva in Kryptek Highlander at last Summer’s Outdoor Retailer. You might ask, “Why Kryptek Highlander?” and I’ll tell you what don’t know, but it is certainly better than their bright Yellow commercial colorscheme.  We just found out that it will be available here in the US starting 15 July, for $390 retail.

The Trango Cube GTX features a new seamless, waterproof upper with protective rand and direct-inject lacing system. Additionally, this Gore-Tex lined boot offers an integrated removable tongue made from a soft stretch fabric to increase comfort. They’ve also reduced the weight from previous versions, yet increased abrasion resistance. One of the ways they’ve reduced weight is with the La Sportiva “One” sole made by Vibram which offers a lower profile meaning lower weight.

Specs:
Weight: 26.2 oz / 743 g
Sizes: 37 – 48 (half sizes)
Upper: QB3 Waterproof fabric/ Kryptek Highlander Print Cordura/ FlexTec2 fabric/ Thermo-Tech Injection
TPU lacing system/ PU Eyelets/ Vibram Rubber Rands
Lining: Gore-Tex Performance Comfort
Insole: 4mm graded Nylon
Midsole: PU in toe and heel/ EVA in the central zone and in the heel / TPU insert for rear crampon attachment
Sole: La Sportiva “ONE” by Vibram (exclusive) with Impact Brake System
Construction: Board Lasted
Last: Trango

La Sportiva – Trango Cube GTX Highlander

Monday, August 17th, 2015

During the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market earlier this month, I had an opportunity to check out a new tactical version of the popular Trango Cube GTX from La Sportiva. The brand has long been embraced by the military who have issued at the unit level, several models of their civilian mountain boots. What’s interesting was their choice of color scheme for this militarized version of the Trango Cube. While the civilian Trango Cube GTX may be the most advanced boot in the line, the existing colors are hardly friendly to tactical climbing. As you can see, this version incorporates the Highlander transitional camouflage pattern from Kryptek.

In addition to the Gore-Tex Surround liner, the Core High GTX features STB technology which stabilizes the foot by wrapping the midsole and attaching it to the upper.
