The Veloce is a novel addition to SCARPA's climbing collection that introduces a fresh category. Specifically designed for indoor climbing, this shoe boasts a more spacious toe box that enhances the comfort level of beginners and intermediate climbers, especially during long bouldering sessions. The Veloce incorporates the latest S-72 rubber technology that delivers exceptional grip on even the smallest footholds, coupled with exceptional durability. The women's version of the Veloce is designed to suit lower volume feet. Other notable features include the Medium tension DTS™ active rand that optimizes energy use for efficient climbing all day, the Relaxed Performance Fit that creates additional space in the toe area for less pressure and more comfort, the PAF heel system that enhances heel hooking performance, and the Single z-strap closure that facilitates quick and easy adjustability. The Veloce is an ideal shoe for all types of indoor climbing.
The PAF heel has made it possible for SCARPA to create the Differentiated Tension System (DTS), which allows for different levels of tension to be applied to the inside and outside of the shoe. This technology helps to optimize the intended characteristics of a particular model by transferring power to the big toe and keeping the foot in an ideal position for precise movement. In addition to enhancing power transfer and precision, the DTS also ensures that the shoe maintains its intended shape and climbing abilities throughout its lifespan.
One of the features of SCARPA's climbing shoes is the Relaxed Performance Fit (RPF) Last, which is a new concept in climbing fit and performance. The new FKJ and FKJW lasts have a more rounded toe shape and additional space around the fourth and fifth toes on the lateral side, creating a more relaxed and open toe shape. This increased comfort is particularly beneficial for beginner to intermediate climbers, as well as advanced climbers seeking a more comfortable shoe for extended training sessions. The women's last is specifically designed to accommodate the unique shape of female feet, with a slightly narrower heel and lower volume instep.
