Mandala: instinct and naturalness for pure performance on the wall

Advertorial: Extreme sensitivity and adaptability on footholds for smoother and more natural climbing: the mix of sensations embodied in Mandala, the latest addition to La Sportiva's No Edge® line, developed to offer an alternative to the traditional climbing style. Made in the Ziano di Fiemme headquarters, Mandala aims to support climbers on their adventures in search of top performance, offering a unique combination of heel control and toe grip to facilitate toe hooks and to ensure a free, dynamic, and fun vertical experience.

Mandala features P3® System technology, which preserves its shape and performance unchanged, as well as allowing prolonged use over time. The Vibram XS Grip 2 3mm rubber compound provides maximum grip levels, offering all climbers excellent performance and maximum safety.
Mandala: ALL FUN, NO EDGE.
