Back in the days when phone had cords and computers made death noises when they connected to the internet, you couldn't have a backcountry ski boot that charged like a full-on alpine boot. Times change, though, and now that you're connected everywhere you go, you might as well also enjoy the all-in-one freeride and touring performance of the Scarpa Gea RS Women's Alpine Touring Boot. With an rugged 120 flex, stiff polyamide shell, burly power strap, and Evo V-Frame cuff, the RS charges steep lines, big faces, and deep pow as hard as you want to, but still crushes the skin track with a 37 range of cuff motion that'd you'd expect to find in a softer boot. It also weighs barely three pounds, so your hip flexors won't be screaming in pain if you have to skin more than a few miles to get to your line. Scarpa hooked the Gea up with it's brand-spanking-new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode, which locks the shell securely to the cuff with two metal pins for bombproof downhill performance and makes it easier to switch between ski and walk modes. It also gave it a stiff Pebax Axial Alpine tongue, which hinges at the toe and actually pivots sideways away from the shell, letting you get your boot on and off easily as well as providing a smooth, progressive flex that eliminates dead spots and stiff zones. It also allows the oversized Zeus buckles and instep-locking Predator HRS strap to securely wrap around your foot, eliminating sloppy fits and uncomfortable pressure points. The Gea comes with a stiff heat-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS Women's liner so you can dial in the perfect fit, a Fitting Indicator System to help you align your Dynafit Quick Step-In tech inserts with your binding, and is finished off with a grippy Vibram Cayman rubber sole for confident footing on slick terrain, ice, and rocks.
