In spring / summer 2019 Hanwag is exploring new terrain with the FERRATA II. It combines long-lasting durability with the technical functionality to cover a wide range of alpine activities, such as difficult via ferratas or alpine tours on rock and ice. The innovative foundation of the new FERRATA II is the Hanwag TubeTec Rock sole technology, which uses an extremely cushioning polyurethane (PU) midsole material and protects it for rugged mountain use with a “tube” made of robust thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). TPU reinforcements create a climbing zone at the sole for maximum edging stability. Proven Vibram Mont compound and Hanwag Integral Light tread design ensure reliable grip and traction. The modern and functional upper is based on the Hanwag LFX (Lateral Flex) technology and enables lateral flex in sync with the lower leg axis. The new Hanwag FERRATA II is – mainly thanks to the TubeTec Rock sole – approximately 10% lighter than its predecessor.
