Description

The Armadillo has the characteristics of our new All Around High Performance Shoe, the Agama, with some additional rental shoe features, like the toe cap, push buttons and size stamps. The 3D molded Toe Cap eliminates the seam where de-lamination can occur, while providing an extra layer or protection for durability. The sticky grey rubber also helps to prevent marks on climbing surfaces. The Armadillo is constructed with premium leather for the upper and the footbed which reduces the odor found in synthetic rental shoes.

Your "fit" should be determined by the type of climbing that you intend doing, combined with your experience level. Remember that leather upper shoes are likely to stretch over time (mostly in lateral width), while lined and synthetic upper shoes are not likely to stretch much at all...

3D Toe Cap Technology

3D Toe Cap

The 3D molded Toe Cap eliminates the seam where de-lamination can occur while providing an extra layer of protection for durability. The sticky grey rubber is a good indicator of when resoling will be needed as the black rand rubber below begins to show and helps to prevent marks on climbing surfaces.
Science Friction 3.0 Technology

Science Friction 3.0

Years after the launch of the first Mad Rock rubber formula, our new Science Friction 3.0 compound marks a special milestone for the Mad Rock brand. After exhaustive research and a new production process originating in the USA, our new formula has a distinctively different characteristic than our previous batches. More durable than any of our previous formulas, our new Science Friction 3.0 also boasts higher friction. This optimal balance is incorporated into our new mix by increasing the tear strength and the memory of the compound. Due to its unique characteristics and unparalleled performance, our new Science Friction 3.0 formula is used on all of our shoes components like the 3D Power Upper, 3D Hooking Heel, 3D Concave Sole as well as the soles in all of our rock shoes.
Science Friction R2 Technology

Science Friction R2

In addition to the new formula for the sole and components of our new 2011 line, the new Science Friction formula was also incorporated into our new rand rubber mix. Higher friction and durability for the rand rubber is a testament to our commitment to performance and improvement in our rock shoe line. Enhancing the elasticity of the rand rubber was also a priority when developing the new rand rubber. As our new Science Friction R2 has greater give without the loss of performance, our new models feel extremely comfortable and sensitive, giving you that glove-like fit.
