La Sportiva Spitfire
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
At half the weight of a standard AT boot, the La Sportiva Spitfire Alpine Touring Boot is the go-to choice for seasoned ski-mountaineers and touring freeriders who know that speed and efficiency are critical to safety in the mountains. The Spitfire's carbon-fiber-reinforced 'exoskeleton' offers precision and performance during the descent without the need for a stiff, heavy tongue. When the ascent gets rocky and technical, you'll appreciate the EX Flex tongue and the extra-hard edging platforms for secure footholds and the soft rubber under the forefoot and heel for shock absorption.
As a crossover performer, the Dynafit Spitfire Alpine touring boots can rando-race in the morning and freeride in the afternoon. Designed for ski moutaineers who want reduced weight, but not reduced skiing performance, the Spitfire is a very solid choice. -- Compatible with all tech bindings.
