XM LITE GTX | No compromises for an aggressive way of trek
Kayland is dedicated to developing boots with excellent performance in all conditions, taking into consideration the possibility of using them for several seasons, in many activities and territories.
With this pursue of excellence, linked to transversality and innovation, was launched the XM Lite GTX, a boot designed especially for trekking and hiking, even with heavy loads, which thanks to its compact and no-frills construction is perfect for meeting the climatic conditions of three seasons, without in any way being affected.
The high cut gives more technicality to the boot, which properly wraps the ankle and the foot thanks to the anatomical padding, studied starting from the specific shape designed for performance on mixed routes. The upper is made of anti-abrasion suede leather, sturdy and durable, with technical anti-tear fabric inserts on the side and tongue. The ankle allocation is ensured by Kayland's Ankle Lock technology, a system that allows, together with the tread of the lacing, to always keep the foot in the correct position throughout the whole activity. Naturally, in order to deal with various climatic conditions, a foot protection against water and external agents is required: the Gore-Tex® Performance Comfort lining effectively performs this function, with the advantage of making the boot waterproof and breathable. The ultimate in protection and interior comfort.
The development of the sole block reaffirms again, even if not necessary, the technical and performing soul of the Kayland collection. The fiberglass and polypropylene insole is versatile and rigid in the correct degree for the use of footwear; the midsole, made of microporous, is shock-absorbing, stable and adapts perfectly to mixed and uneven paths. Finally, the Vibram® Mulaz Evo outsole is the benchmark for every type of trekking boot in this category: the 5 mm deep lugs, designed to be self-cleaning and provide maximum traction in every situation, are molded with a sticky compound, developed specifically for the mountain, which provides maximum grip on every terrain, even wet, steep and uneven.
