X-Tension System Technology

X-Tension System

Innovative concept of active midsole adapting to the footshape while loading and unloading bodyweight to the forefoot area, for the best power transmission. The pre-tensioned rubber rand enhances toe power, providing a direct connection among the front edge of the sole, the upper closure (lacing, Velcro®, elastic band) and heel area. In combination with half soles, the X-TENSION system supports the arch and forefoot without reducing sensitivity the way stiff midsoles do.

Splitter Choss Gear Review no rating given just a review

The last Scarpa shoe I used was the Furia S, which couldn’t be more different than the Mago. And I would say that the Mago is a much more versatile shoe which should appeal to a broader audience. I’m finding I throw these in my pack more and more these days, and if you’re in the market for a precision edging shoe, these are worth trying on.

Squamish Climbing Magazine Gear Review no rating given just a review

Overall, the Scarpa Mago Climbing Shoe is a great downturned and asymmetrical technical climbing shoe. It holds a ton of power and precision in the toe box which is combined with a very well fitted and sensitive heel cup. For those jumping right into these shoes, they are difficult to break ibn so you do need to give them some time in the gym warming up before you pack them for the crag and your project.

With the Mago, the juxtaposition between stiff and soft is interesting, and as you adjust your climbing style to the attributes of the shoe, you may find yourself becoming more versatile and fluid in your footwork, as well as less discriminating in your choice of holds. Those micros that were formerly “off limits” now look huge. Toe in and go!

UK Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

In recent years Scarpa seem to have hit some sort of magic formula, creating a whole host of rock boots that have swiftly become classics of their genre - the Helix, the Vapour and the Instinct being three particularly notable examples. This formula doesn't actually occur by magic though, it is a result of gettng the right fit, the right design, the right features and then melding them into a single package that feels, well, right.
