PROFESSIONAL

It has finally released after over 3 years long research & developmentby the professional of rubber products.

SANOA was produced by MARUNI INDUSTRY, the only tire repair manufacturer in Japan, through trial and error.

Climbing shoe soles have never been easier to develop because they require high levels of friction, hardness, and durability.
In product development, with the cooperation of climbers, we pursued high quality, safety and foot comfort and also tested the functionality and durability. And finally we completed this special sole for climbing shoes.

It is absolutely Maruni’s ultimate masterpiece which has been extracted from 70 years’ experience of rubber knowledge and technology.

The birth of a sole specially focused on friction.

PRESIDENT MARUNI INDUSTRY CO., LTD. SUGURU ASANO

I myself do climbing, and I thought it would be great if I could fix my favorite climbing shoes by my company’s products.
When I started research & development, I found that the rubber of climbing shoes require unique characters to have friction and durability, and then we repeated trial and error many times.
With the experience of dealing with rubber for many years and the cooperation of climbers’ monitoring, we are very pleased to announce our newest and greatest sole that is totally focused on friction.
I would like many climbers to try it, from beginners to advanced climbers.

CLIMBER'S IMPRESSION

When you challenge the limits,powerful friction performance leads to the next move.

SANOA’s sole has a good feeling of soles, and stickiness is directly transmitted at climbing. Since you don’t feel slippery when climbing, you feel secured and you even want to challenge a smaller hold which you have never tried before.
