Terrex Solo: approach in STEALTH mode

adidas has finetuned its lightweight Terrex Solo approach shoe using legendary STEALTH rubber. As a result, this Outdoor Award winner, which was developed in conjunction with Beat Kammerlander, Bernd Zangerl and the Huber Brothers, provides unbeatable grip and evolves into an absolutely reliable partner on the way to boulders or rocks.

The adidas footwear specialists worked for many months with Five Ten founder and rubber engineer, Charles Cole, on the sole of the Terrex Solo. Now, for the first time, climbers and boulderers can enjoy the lightweight adidas approach shoe with STEALTH rubber – the unique compound that offers unbeatable grip and ultimate performance on any angle terrain. Thanks to the finely tuned balance between viscosity and elasticity, the rubber flows into microscopic cavities on any surface to provide the high friction necessary for risk sports. This is clearly ideal for approaches, especially for short climbs. It is also perfect for athletes who spend hours on vertical rock faces, drilling, belaying or taking photos, and who need comfort as well as performance on the rock.

In addition to the unique properties of the proprietary STEALTH sole, the Terrex Solo also offers light weight and stability. The midsole, which features EVA foam, has been reinforced using a TPU film. In the heel section, special ADIPRENE® foam absorbs impacts to enable comfortable, but dynamic movement, even during longer approaches. Asymmetrical loops are fitted to the heels so that these lightweight shoes can easily be attached with a biner to your backpack or climbing harness, allowing them to hang parallel to each other. Comfort, lightness and unbeatable grip – that's what makes the new adidas Terrex Solo the first-choice approach shoe for climbers and boulderers.
