The Gea RS is Scarpa's stiffest and most powerful women's AT boot. It's designed to devour long ascents with the speed and grace of a gazelle while maintaining the ability to charge steep lines like a freeride champ. Scarpa buffed up the Gea RS this year with a lightweight design that's equally at home in pinner couloirs as it is on the skintrack. The Gea RS features the same aggressive 120 flex and 101mm last as its predecessor and now houses a revamped carbon-infused Grilamid shell that increases stiffness and power without adding weight. Scarpa ditched the front buckle, jumping to a lower-profile three-buckle system that eliminates bulk and increases the cuff rotation from 37 to an impressive 60 degrees in walk mode--a welcome change that drastically increases uphill efficiency. Scarpa was also able to shed about five ounces per boot, a change you'll definitely notice when you leave your buddies in the dust on the skinner. Scarpa finished off the Gea RS with a grippy Vibram rubber sole, so you'll be steady and confident while traversing icy ridges and slick scree fields.
A women's specific boot with a 120 flex, 60 degree range of motion, and weighing 260g. The Scarpa Gea RS tours like a rando boot, skis like a freeride boot, and is ready for anything. A Carbon Grilamid Web Frame is the secret to the Gea's stiffness to weight ratio. The Speedlock Plus walk mode is easy to use, rock solid, and provides a friction free tour mode when disengaged. Scarpa's updated tongue shape hinges more freely at the ankle but is still stiff enough to give the Gea RS a freeride feel on the descent. Click into your favorite powder skis for a big winter day, or grab a pair of crampons and take off for a spring mission. The Gea RS will deliver no matter the objective.
The Scarpa Gea RS are the women's specific alpine touring boots you have always been looking for! The Gea RS has an awesome combination of AT and downhill ski technologies.
