Tenaya Mundaka Climbing Shoe
The Tenaya Mundaka draws heavily from the Oasi - the shoe worn by Alex Megos on the world's first 9a onsight - taking away none of its style and performance but making some changes. The middle part of the sole is now very soft, making the Mundaka more precise than the Oasi and with better sensitivity for overhanging problems. Don't worry though, as it's not all about the steep stuff; they've kept the toe-box nice and hard so as to not sacrifice edging power performance on the vertical. To make this shoe more durable, Tenaya have placed the Mundaka's rand over the heel rubber to prevent it from peeling off. A useful addition if you're going to be doing a lot of heel-hooking manoeuvres. As for features, the Mundaka has the easy-to-use Draxtor® lacing system with two adjustable length webbings attached to a velcro strap for fast on-and-offs and a precise fit, and the SXRDynamics® rand that prevents toe bulging and keeps the climber's weight loaded precisely on a foot hold.
An offspring of the high-performance Oasi, the Mundaka is very much the brother of the shoe that sent Alex Megos up his record breaking climb, but a slightly different design built to perform on and endure through more technical routes and problems.

Vibram XS Grip
Vibram XS Grip
Rubber compound for pure friction, recommended for use where maximum grip is the primary need: bouldering and lead climbing, indoor and outdoor climbing, or extremely smooth, polished routes. Exceptional grip in every condition.
Draxtor® Lacing System
A highly precise, fast, and efficient lacing system. The first time you try the shoe, adjust the length of the webbing to find the perfect tightness for your foot. From then on you will have a secure fit every time you velcro up.
Tenaya's proprietary movement adjustment system that focuses power towards the big toe and front edge based on your position for maximum, smart precision on the smallest features. By utilising a special joining technique, the rand stays vertical to the sole when you put pressure anywhere on the toes instead of bulging out, which can knock you off balance. This means you have more sensitivity and precision, whatever your position on the rock.
