The Tenaya Tarifa is Alex Megos’ preferred choice on any climb that features lots of technical micro-edging.
The midsole has been made to be stiffer. The laces allow for a more precise fit and create a stiffer edging platform. Tenaya’s signature RB RangeX and SXRDynamics technologies that work with the foot’s biomechanics increase the shoe’s responsiveness. This allows you to climb more intuitively and be more stable and controlled on footholds. Moderate camber, a slightly downturned toe. And thin 3.5 mm Vibram XS Grip rubber provides performance and sensitivity on overhanging terrain for varied sport climbs and boulder problems.
The fast-lace system is quicker and easier to use than regular lacing systems for faster on-and-offs in between climbs. The synthetic upper means you can wear this shoe straight out of the box with no breaking-in required. You can be sure this no-stretch material will maintain the shoe’s powerful shape. The Tarifa is a great shoe for narrower feet.
For any climber seeking a high-performance sport climbing and bouldering shoe who often climbs vertical faces or limestone edges. The shoe is supportive and stiff, yet sensitive and aggressive. Perfect for all types of climbs.
