Mammut Flextron Technology
Mammut launches the innovative Flextron technology in the new Duncan shoe models. A spring steel midsole is flexible in length and supports the rolling behavior of the foot. In the cross direction, the Flextron sole is rigid and prevents the arch of the foot from being pushed through uneven terrain. The result: an anatomically correct foot position, increased surefootedness and slower fatigue even on longer tours. The overall improvement in posture has been proven to result in fewer compensating movements and thus more efficient use of energy during hiking and mountaineering.
