Black Diamond launch new Momentum Shoe Featured

Written by 

Black Diamond’s maxim for the new product category of climbing shoes is incomparablecomfort, breathability and incredible performance! Unique is the light knitted technology in the upper material combined with the molded NeoFriction rubber. Climbing is not only for professionals anymore. The hip climber of the 21st century appreciates also the urban environment, literally hangs with colleagues in the climbing hall, dresses young, modern and enjoys the comfort of breathable climbing shoes.

Designed to provide unparalleled comfort for all day cragging and gym sessions, the Momentum is a two-strap Velcro shoe that combines innovative technology with a classic, flat- last design to create an entry-level show that excels in performance. With an upper fabric that consists entirely of Engineered Knit Technology, the Momentum provides stretch where you need it, supportive where it matters and all around exceptional breathability. Micro-fiber liner has also been added to the front of the shoe to minimize stretch and maximize comfort. The Momentum’s durable rubber is unique in that it’s molded-inspired by the way we forge our carabiners-versus cut from one sheet of rubber. This is the engineered solution to optimize the shoe’s rubber and rands for weight, consistency and comfort. Built for all-day comfort on moderate routes, boulders or gym sessions, the Momentum features a soft-flex midsole for sensitivity and is the perfect entry-level climbing shoe.

Davy Wright

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District
