The Scarpa F1 alpine touring ski boots will help you to maximize vertical time and minimize transition time, whether you're looking for turns in the backcountry or competing in the local race series.

- REI refers to the men's version

You've seen one lightweight touring boot, you've seen 'em all, right' Right' Err, wrong. That used to be pretty much the case--maybe a little extra carbon here or some added stiffness there--but Scarpa's F1 Alpine Touring Boot, while still recognizably a ski boot, has some tech wizardry that's not so ordinary. The cuff closes via a powerful FBC fast-buckle closure powerstrap, letting you get every ounce of power out of the 95 flex, and a Carbon Core insert and X-Cage EVO cuff structure make the F1 ski more like the burlier Maestrale while keeping the weight in Alien territory.
