It's a beauty to look at, this yellow/black bee, but that's only in the shop. Two hours of walking or climbing with it in mud and snow will change that dramatically....It walks excellent on difficult terrain and rock, gives comfort, and you can climb with it, thanks of the rubber toe. The grip on rock is superior but not on wet snow or ice. You can easily put on any crampon on it to help you out.
I had some rust and corrosion on the inside of this boot at the metal parts and the Kevlar outside parts will flush a little.
It's comfortable, lots of grip on rock, ready to climb rock or ice with crampons, not stiff enough to hold long, a little overpriced. It will support you but gives your moves some freedom too. The lacing system is ok, they call it speedlacing?
It's a lite boot, and that count for me.
