Why We Like It

We all get a little upset when our pants seem to shrink two sizes after a big meal. Well, our feet feel the same way out on the trail. XTENEX has created innovative compression laces designed to mold and hold the footwear fit that you create. Never too tight - never too loose - always just right. XH-Series features a self-forming tapered Round Knot design, created for the less extreme but still demanding applications.


Less aggressive tapered (Hybrid) Knot design makes lacing-up and compression tuning easier and requires only a single directional pull to reduce the blocking knots.

To lace and adjust XH-Series:

Tapered Round Knots will pass through an eyelet when sufficiently stretched to reduce the blocking knot diameter, select the desired compression index* then release to set, repeat the fitting process at each eyelet to set a radial compression footwear fit.
