Aequilibrium Series: light and fast mountaineering by La Sportiva


Tuesday, 8 June

Balance is the state that makes it possible to control the position and movement of the body in space, a harmonic synthesis between opposite and opposite forces. In the world of technical mountain footwear, the search for the balance between apparently contrasting needs such as comfort and technicality, but also lightweight and durability, is the basis of the daily challenges of a research and development department such as that of La Sportiva, a leading company in the sector of technical mountaineering footwear and clothing since 1928, when the first products that came out of the then small workshop of the shoemaker Narciso Delladio were precisely mountain footwear and boots. The Trentino company has come a long way since then, anticipating and developing the trends of mountains enthusiasts with innovative, game changing products. For summer 2021 La Sportiva launches a totally new line of mountaineering footwear: Aequilibrium Series.

The name of the series itself is a declaration of intent: to perfectly combine the comfort, technicality, lightweight and durability required by modern mountaineering that makes “light & fast” imperative. Aequilibrium was created for use on alpine terrain, for quick and light day trips, for technical passages on stony ground and mixed terrain, and is designed to accompany the mountaineer on the entire route from home to the top thanks to an unprecedented, comfortable fit.
