“The Race ski mountaineering shoe par excellence, dedicated to competition and unmatched in terms of lightness.
Weight: 500g with liner in size 26.
The locking system for the downhill mode of the Race 400 is based on the use of a lever. Thus, a simple movement is all it takes to switch between downhill and uphill modes. Once the tightening adjustment is made, you won’t have to modify it anymore, and it will always be ready for your competitions.
Range of motion
Translation to French: “Outre sa légèreté, la véritable force de la Race 400 réside dans la liberté de mouvement qu’elle offre à la cheville, vous permettant de propulser votre pied plus loin sans résistance.
The Race sole is as light as possible, compliant with the ISMF regulations. The optimal spacing of the crampons ensures good grip on all surfaces. It is directly molded onto the carbon shell for maximum traction.
Made in France, this removable liner is thermoformable. It provides comfort and warmth. The toe box is spacious for enhanced insulation. Split into two parts, it allows for maximum ankle movement.
The ILS lacing system, specially developed by us for carbon shoes, has already proven itself on our ski mountaineering boots. Its design provides a firm and precise foothold. The adaptability of the lacing system to the foot’s morphology offers great comfort. ILS (Internal Lacing System)
Nothing compares to low-tech bindings when it comes to ski touring. Therefore, all our shoes are low-tech compatible. The front insert of Gignoux shoes has a bevel that aids in stepping in, while the rear insert is designed to accommodate the majority of semi-automatic crampons.
Each piece is made from ultra-high-performance carbon in our workshop in France. Special care is taken in the placement of different fiber layers to optimize weight, strength, and rigidity ratios.
Discover the asymmetrical cuff
Our cuffs are now asymmetrical. Ergonomic and perfectly contoured to the skier’s leg, they assist in ski control. Particularly useful during long traverses, this new shape supports the calf without compression.
To ensure that weight is never a limitation again, we have created a 100% carbon shoe, the lightest in the world.

Several years are required for the design of a shoe. From the initial idea to the finished product, including numerous field tests, no detail is left to chance.
