Here we list the most important technical developments we have put in place during more than 70 years of experience in manufacturing top quality mountain boots.
Vibram® backpacking sole from Zamberlan®, featuring high technology concepts and innovative ideas. Three different sole densities work together to provide superb functions: 1. the Vibram® special rubber outersole compound, 2. the low density PU midsole 3.
FWS - Foot Wrapping System
An exclusive method from Zamberlan® to shape the upper with special patented moulds. The foot is perfectly wrapped, sensitivity, control and comfort are enhanced. The one-piece leather upper ensures a greater protection from water and a greater durability.
Micro porous membrane with specific characteristics of water resistance and breathability. Its structure and construction make it an ideal lining for outdoor footwear at all levels of performance.
This is the trade mark registered by Zamberlan® to identify only the best quality leathers, tanned following a special treatment that enhances water-repellence, resistance and durability.
The efficient proposal from Zamberlan® to wear step in crampons. It features a PU insert in the heel, an anatomical PU midsole and a light microporous wedge. It ensures limited overall weight, greater stability and precision when climbing.
A special rubber reinforcement is applied to the upper, using an exclusive technical method developed by Zamberlan®. It ensures maximum abrasion resistance, enhances water repellence and helps the boot to keep its shape during extended use.
SEMI-Pro Crampon System is the method for footwear to be used with semi articulated crampons. It features a TPU insert in the heel to ease the fixing of the semi automated crampons, combined with a suitable midsole for the right degree of rigidity.
SuperFabric® is an abrasion resistant technical fabric, created with a base fabric overlaid with tiny, hard guard plates in a specific pattern. Spacings between the guard plates allow flexibility, low weight, breathability and are small enough to keep sharp objects from penetrating. It is very durable, stain resistant and quick drying.
It is the internationally recognized trademark for quality, durability and grip of the high performance rubber soles.
Zamberlan® special construction and design method and choice of components to optimize the comfort and the boot breathability. Boots crafted accordingly are extremely light weight and extremely more breathable!
It is the special stabilizer engineered by Zamberlan® to achieve the best combination of torsional stability and flexion at the natural foot flex point.
To reduce the impact of the foot on the terrain at every step, the Z.C.S. utilizes different types of shock absorbing materials all with high cushioning and stabilizing effects.
Zamberlan® Flex-STM (patent) describes the unique multidirectional joint that offers great lateral support, comfort and freedom of movement of the ankle and overall stability. The boot upper flexes exactly trailing the natural foot and lower leg movement giving lots of lateral support when traversing and on steep and rough terrain.
