Scarpa Alien 1.0
Here's what other sites are saying:
Move like a being from another world in the backcountry when you tour with the Scarpa Alien 1. 0 Alpine Touring Boot. Advancing light years ahead of its competition, this TLT-compatible boot uses space-age lightweight carbon in the cuff, providing the rigidity you need to make the Kessler run in twelve parsecs. With only one flick of the A-Light single-throw buckle, you can loosen the cuff to achieve incredible rotation for easing long up-tracks and concurring mountain summits.
Scarpa's Alien Boots are the perfect crossover boot between the rando racing world and the world of advanced and speed-efficient ski touring. There is now a soft internal cuff to keep snow out of the boot and the gaiter will no longer be needed.
If you're entering a randonee race or are interested in dramatically lightening up your backcountry touring setup, then the Scarpa Alien randonee boots are for you.
