Description

A trad climber's delight.

Scarpa designed its Techno X Climbing Shoe to excel on practically any route you throw it on, from vertical, technical sport climbs to trad routes with cracks and slabs. While the technical flat-lasted construction makes this shoe comfortable for all-day climbing on the big walls, its Bi-Tension active randing system provides maximum power on your toe without cramming them down. And its flat toe profile ensures you can jam your foot in the smallest cracks with the utmost comfort. Perforated suede leather provides comfort and breathability, and microsuede overlays add durability. Its Flexan 1.4 midsole keeps the shoe stiff for quality edging and increased support, and the Vibram XS Edge rubber offers incredible grip and durability so you can smear slabby sections with confidence for many seasons. Scarpa left this shoe unlined for an increased sensitivity, which is something you appreciate when you're climbing on slippery, dime-sized edges.

My go-to shoe.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wear a street shoe of 9.5 and bought these in a 9.0. They stretch just enough to make them fit like a dream. I bought these while at Smith Rock (redpoint cafe) and they are perfect for that type of climbing. Stiff shoe. They've been called a Mythos killer and I think that's accurate. Not only are they stiff and comfortable, but I can edge on them like no other. Think of them like a Mythos + the Pinks and you'll get a sense of why I love these bad boys.

Complaints:

1. When you first wear them the band really digs into your achilles. The back of the shoe is abnormally high and will leave an abrasion mark. After about 15 wears that went away, so still 5 stars.

2. For my foot the toe box was perfect and I felt like I could edge on anything with my big toe. However, it doesn't achieve the same pointedness as, say, the muiras. As a bouldering shoe, it's sub-par, but that's not what the shoe is about. So still 5 stars.

For reference: I also wear a 9.0 in Moccasyms and my foot doesn't work with an Anasazi VCS.

Has anyone else had problems with the technos being slippery? I bought a pair, they fit great, but had so little friction that when I used them at the climbing gym I was unable to do many smeary climbs that I am used to doing with my old scarpa helixes

Hey Lucas,

If you are not digging the rubber on the Techno X but still want a flat lasted laceup that performs well, you might check out the Five Ten Stonelands Laceup, Item# FVT1996. They use Stealth C4, which you can't beat for friction and edging.

Hey guy,

Not sure if these perform the same as the old Technos but I mine definitely took a few sessions and more to break in/ get used to the rubber. I remember thinking the exact same thing my first few trips to the gym with them, but then it was a non issue after.

I wear Scarpa Vapor V size 44.5. Should I get the same size in these?

I would go with the same size you wear in the Vapor V. I just sent you an email as well in regards to sizing and order options we have to help accommodate you in getting the perfect size.

Versatility on the rocks.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm a huge fan of switching shoes every time my previous pair blows out, but I think I might stick with the Scarpa Techno X climbing shoe for the rest of my life. I got these versatile shoes two weeks ago and I've already put them through the wringer. The first place I took them to was the West Sawtooths, and they performed better than I expected.

So far, these are the best shoes I've climbed with whether I'm climbing crack, slab, or techy faces. They edge, smear, and jam so comfortably that I can wear them for days, so multipitches aren't a problem.

Expect a half-size stretch.

Performance, comfort, versatility!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Scarpa has clearly taken their time with this one and Heinz Mariacher, the shoe designer, has designed one hell of a shoe.

The easiest way to describe this shoe would be to say it's where the La Sportiva TC Pro meets the Scarpa Vapor VS Lace. This shoe has the comfort and all day multi-pitching ability of the TC pro but with a precise and conformed fit like that of the Vapor. The "active randing" technology used in this shoe provides hard precision in the toe, a well fitting heel, without the hard aggressive downturn in the toebox. Imagine a non-to-slightly aggressive Solution but with the same form fitting.

The toe box is narrow in profile and cams wonderfully in cracks. It has a small protective layer of rubber which keeps the shoe lasting longer. The flat last allows for precise and friction filled slab climbing, but with significant edging ability.

Although the shoe material is leather - their is so much rubber that forms the rand and on the toe box that it doesn't seem to stretch out much so fit true to size - maybe half size down for more aggressive fit.

Dude. Solid review. For those considering this shoe, I agree with this review. It's like a TC Pro with way more precision and edging ability. I also agree your the comment about it being able to perform like more downturned shoes "without the aggressive downturn."
