For years, Gamar Italia has been successfully offering, producing and selling technical solutions for hiking shoes. From simple bodkins to systems with high technical/mechanical content such as the patented “Quick Lock”, a device that allows tightening the laces and adjusting the fit with a quick and intuitive gesture, without having to make the classic knot. This eliminates the annoying problem of tying laces that often come undone during the day. It also eliminates the annoyance of having laces that are too long, touch the ground, get dirty, and that can fray and get caught.
Not only, the Quick Lock system mounted on a hiking boot allows taking advantage of split and differentiated lacing that can satisfy the need – very important for mountain climbers – to adjust the lacing points by modulating the pull to obtain maximum comfort both downhill and uphill. It also ensures maximum adherence of the upper to the foot and perfect freedom of movement. The right adherence of the upper part of the joint no longer has to cross the neck of the foot, which in turn facilitates the walking stride for considerable physical benefit.
Quick Lock is a simple gesture that provides comfort and technicality to the mountain shoe, while also giving an aesthetic and innovative look to the shoe.
The system can be customised and there are many colours to choose from in order to find the perfect combination with the upper.
It is made up of two elements: a part in technical polymer with characteristics that can withstand temperatures as low as -50°C without changing elasticity, allowing it to work together with the second part in light metal.
Quick Lock works with any type of lace and does not fear water, mud, shocks or weathering as has already been tested in the toughest and most challenging environmental hiking and trekking conditions.
It is the perfect solution to complete the functionality of laces, eliminating problems associated with them which have always been considered unsolvable.
Gamar Italia would like to thank the “Maxima Design” firm of Montebelluna for its valuable collaboration in the development of the Quick Lock project.
