TCX has announced the addition of a new boot to its roster: the Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex.
The goal of the Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex, according to TCX, is to bring the security of a riding boot to the comfort of a walking boot.
To do this, TCX designed the Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex “ventilation grid and innovative side openings”, to mean that “the boots promise cyclists dry and comfortable feet, whatever the weather”, according to a press release. from TCX.
The Climatrek is not just a boot for riding. According to TCX, it is also suitable for “light trekking”, beneficial if you’ve gone on an adventure and have arrived at a place that you want to explore in more detail, away from the bike.
TCX’s new boot also includes CE-approved protection for the lower leg (specifically the shin and malleolus), “as well as toe and heel reinforcements.”
About the comfort of the Climatrek, TCX says, “Comfort is a priority for the Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex boots with the cushioned EVA midsole, along with the Ortholite sockliner that provides long-lasting cushioning.”
They continue: “Built with high tenacity and synthetic materials, the new TCX boots offer maximum breathability and waterproofing thanks to their Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane.”
There is also a new rubber outsole on the boot, called “Groundtrax”, designed for hiking, light off-roading and walking on rough terrain.
The TCX Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex boot comes in a ‘black/grey’ color option, with sizes 5-13 (UK, EU sizes 38-48) and priced at £199.99.
Additionally, there’s a women’s option, the Climatrek Surround Lady GTX, which has all the same safety features as the Climatrek Surround Gore-Tex but “designed specifically for the shape of a woman’s foot,” according to TCX. The women’s option is available in ‘black/gold’, with sizes 3-8 (UK, EU sizes 35-42) at £199.99.
