The first time you try the OASI you’ll realise that it’s something completely different.
Despite its curved form the Oasi is superbly comfortable - more so than many flat rock shoes - allowing you to climb all day without even thinking about pain.
This model is from the Aerial Plus range - a high performance range of climbing shoes built on an aggressively curved last, making them perfect for overhanging routes, without sacrificing any efficiency on tiny edges or friction holds.
Also offering levels of comfort previously unheard of in such high performance shoes.
The Oasi’s design and system of construction lets the heel sit lower while climbing and is superbly responsive to every situation, relaying detailed information back to the user in any situation.
The Oasi’s aggressively curved form responds to every subtle movement of the foot.
To further enhance this Tenaya have created RBRX technology which works seamlessly with their SXR Dynamics system, giving you greater contact with the rock over a range of movements.
A 3.5mm rubber sole and five-micro-layer insole conveys every nuance of the rock and allows maximum transmission of power to the footholds.

Tenaya Ratings :
- Rigidity 3.0/5, not too stiff for the gym. not too soft for outdoor climbing.
More rigid and structured shoes,more power can be transmitted to the rock.
- Sensitivity 4/5
The more sensitive a shoe is, the more information gets transferred to the climber about the shape and the characteristics of the foot holds, giving a sensation of closer contact with the rock.
- Foot Width Response 3.5/5
This is the capacity of the shoe to adapt to the width of your foot.
This capacity is not only determinate by the width of the sole, in some cases a shoe with a narrow sole displays a great capacity to adapt to a wider foot
A superbly versatile curved shoe.
The design and construction techniques have resulted in a shoe of amazing precision on every type of foothold and all kinds of difficult situations.
The angle of the toe-box and aggressively curved shape allow the heel to sit lower providing a greater feel and control.
Incredibly comfortable for such a high performance curved shoe.
Patented Draxtor Velcro closure system allows optimal adjustment over different parts of the shoe.
DRAXTOR , Tenaya’s patented closure system is unique.
It’s so precise, so quick and easy to use and provides independent tension control over different parts of the shoe.
Once the user has configured the system to their specific requirements they will never need to waste time on adjustment again.
SXR Dynamics - in motion fit
Technology that increases the dynamic response of the shoe improving its ability to adapt to different rock shapes and greater precision and comfort.
In motion fit, the rand rubber and your foot doesn’t bulge out beyond the sole
A tiny open space is designed into the heel to accommodate the slight change in volume that occurs in a down-turned shoe when you stand on a foothold.
Technology that improves the balance between all the performance of the shoe achieving a greater range of response and greater performance in very different situations.
