The perfect combination of form and flexibility enabling ultimate precision. The Mundaka features a close, glove-like fit, providing maximum responsiveness in all types of climbing situations. Aggressive yet balanced, the Mundaka is the widest-fitting climbing shoes in the Tenaya’s toe-down range and is superbly capable on overhanging routes and boulder problems, while losing no efficiency on lower-angle smearing.
When we started on project Mundaka we had one priority: to create a shoe which feels as supple as possible yet maintains its form enough to yield excellent precision on small holds. Featuring a very soft midsole but more rigid toe-box and heel cup, the Mundaka can adapt perfectly to multiple rock forms. The SXR Dynamics rand combined with RBRX technology gives greater freedom of movement and greater interaction with the rock.
The Mundaka’s design, system of construction and related technologies provide more precision than ever before, giving the climber total control and enabling maximum transition of force from the toes to the rock.
The curved shape and angle of attack have been finely tuned to allow the heels to be kept low, resulting in less fatigue and greater contact with the rock. The shoe will perform outstandingly on everything from overhanging walls and boulders to jamming cracks.
Super sticky rubber covers the upper part of the toe-box and instep, providing both increased protection against abrasion and added friction in various climbing situations. The different materials used in the construction of the five-layer bellows tongue achieve optimal levels of breathability and elasticity and facilitate precise adjustment and perfect fit.
Just like the IATI, the change of heel design meant we had to completely start afresh and build the shoe from the back forwards. Changing one component of the shoe without re-working other parts would not have achieved the same precise results. Look at how our heel-band wraps around the mid-sole and sits high at the back, preventing de-lamination of the heel cup while completely eradicating heel lift. Two different rubber formulations are used in the heel, and the inner is shaped slightly differently to the outer layer. Unique to the Mundaka, our brilliantly effective Draxtor closure system, is augmented by an outer flap, which gives greater consistency and control in this part of the shoe. Altogether, these multiple advanced features result in a shoe that just feels better and works better than anything else on the market.
We at Tenaya understand that, no matter how many cutting edge features a shoe possesses, if it isn’t comfortable to wear then you simply won’t realize your maximum potential on the rock. To this end, as with all our models, every aspect of the Mundaka’s design and construction is aimed at providing class-leading performance combined with class-leading comfort. From its soft yet structured fit to the application of our latest technologies, every aspect of the shoe is calculated down to the last millimetre in order to deliver maximum levels of comfort in a high performance shoe.
