Designed for snow hikers doing regular snowshoe hiking in cold weather. Ideal for packed snow, go discover snowy trails. Warm and waterproof, designed with snowcontact rubber sole to guarantee improved grip, you can randomly hike in compacted snow.
Comfort temperature rating when stationary: -11°C . while moving: -20°C.
Waterproof and breathable membrane keeps your feet dry.
SNOWCONTACT technology: optimal grip on snow, 3 mm crampons.
Mid upper with hook on the top for good support.
RUNNING HIKING SNOW HIKING
LEVEL OF PRACTICE
Based on tests on perceived cold conducted in the field and in the lab involving a panel of users, we measure the thermal insulation of our boots when stationary (static) and when moving (dynamic). It is therefore possible to accurately know down to which temperature your shoes are protecting you. Comfort temperature ratings are indicated on your boots. We take into account the differences in the perception of cold between men and women.
Tested in the laboratory, the shoes give you an optimal impermeability. First immersed in water under air pressure, we check the absence of bubbles on the surface of the shoe. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm simulating walking, half immersed in water. We then check if the inside of the boot remains perfectly dry. These laboratory tests are supplemented with wear and ageing tests conducted in the field.
During the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. equivalent to an 8 km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 16 km walk).
This model of boot has been tested up to 2000 flexes, equivalent to 4 km of walking.
The SNOWCONTACT soles are designed using a specific component and a lug pattern that is designed to provide the best possible grip and traction. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. When used on ice, optimum safety can only be ensured by adding non-slip grips.
All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions involve the product manager and people who are not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
Laboratory tests are conducted to test the following elements: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.
Store your products in a well-ventilated location away from light and moisture.
