Lowa Ice Rocket


I have used a pre-production sample of the Ice Rocket at the Ouray Ice Park. The shoes fit typically Lowa-wide so are very comfortable for wider feet. They are quite low so don’t have a lot of ankle support, however they make up for that in mobility.

The BD Raptor crampon comes included and pre-installed however it is not my favourite comp crampon due to it’s mutli-part construction that requires frequent re-tightening.

I also found the Boa closure system tends to slip a bit when weighed both during walking and climbing and I would find myself having to tighten the boot while climbing on-route. (Though keep in mind this was a pre-production sample and I haven’t had a chance to climb in the retail model yet.)
