Lowa Expedition 8000 Evo RD Mountaineering Boots
The Lowa Expedition 8000 Evo Rd Mountaineering Boots are the Winner of the ISPO Innovation award and the ultimate expedition boot. The Expedition 8000 are highly technical double boots made specifically for peaks in the 8,000 m range or arctic temperatures. If you need a mountaineering boot for expedition in the 6,000 meter zone or tough terrain typical of western peaks, try the Lowa Expedition 6000 Evo RD Mountaineering Boots
The Lowa Expedition Alpine Boots, developed in close cooperation with alpinist Ralf Dujmovits who is one of the most successful mountaineers worldwide, were completely redesigned for summer 2014. The removable GORE-TEX® Duratherm inner boot of the Expedition 8000 Evo RD ensures comfortable temperature management and is quick-drying. The additional 400 grams of Primaloft insulation keeps feet warm even in icy temperatures. The Expedition 8000 Evo RD comes with a removable inner boot as well as 400 grams of Primaloft insulation.
Totally new in both styles is the gaitor construction with GORE-TEX® that has also in part been given a ceramic coating. This guarantees high abrasion resistance and the ability to shed dirt. The zipper is also waterproof. In addition to being lightweight, the proven Vibram® rubber outsole "Dolent" has absolutely secure traction and edging ability. In the sole construction, LOWA uses an EVA midsole and a carbon insert. This provides both optimal cushioning as well as secure control and high rigidity while keeping weight down. Both styles are compatible with today's step-in and hybrid crampon systems.
