The new standard for high-performance AT boots, the Scarpa Maestrale RS is a powerful touring boot for today's hard-chargers in the backcountry.
Slightly stiffer (20%) and slightly heavier (40 g) than the Maestrale, the Scarpa Maestrale RS is a slightly more powerful brother that charges the downhill but has all the flex necessary for a comfortable tour. The asymmetric tongue design, rolled-out last year, has proven to be durable and provides excellent foot entry. Unique Axial Alpine closure and asymmetric tongue design opens like a clam-shell ending all struggles getting your boots on Thermo-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS liner are the gold standard, they mold beautifully and keep your toes warm Polyamide shell and cuff, Pebax(R) tongue Two forward lean angles in ski mode: 16deg or 20deg Features Dynafit's patented notched Quick Step-In Tech Fittings for sight-less binding entry Trust your footing with durable Vibram soles Forefoot width of 101mm
The Scarpa Maestrale combine lightweight materials with four buckles for power to create the ultimate touring boot for the backcountry.
The downhill-oriented Scarpa Maestrale RS randonee boots are designed for hard-charging backcountry skiers. They are 20% stiffer and only a touch heavier than the original Maestrale boots. Polyamide shells and Pebax(R) tongues keep the boots light yet stiff for great responsiveness on fast descents. Shell design combines the best of both the overlap and cabrio constructions to allow easy entry/exit, excellent volume control and strong support for downhill performance. Touring-style Intuition Pro Flex RS liners use 100% Ultralon(R) foam for a custom fit; liners offer good range of motion yet provide support with stiff tongues. Tongue-style liners (as opposed to a wrap-style liners) provide easy entry and comfortable flex through the shins when touring. See an REI ski shop professional to have the liners custom molded to your feet to maximize comfort and performance. Boots are compatible with all randonee bindings; tech fittings at the toes of the boots accept Dynafit-style bindings. Tech fittings have grooves that make getting into Dynafit-style bindings easy; fitting indicators can be seen from above to help you line the boot toes up with the bindings. 3 magnesium buckles and a Predator RS instep strap on each boot lock your feet in place; instep straps are easy to engage with gloves on. Wide rip-and-stick power straps wrap securely around the outside of the cuffs, distributing pressure and bringing the cuffs as close as possible your lower legs. Rear ski/walk mechanisms free the cuffs for walking comfort; flip the switches to ski mode and you can lock the cuffs at 16deg or 20deg of forward lean. Maestrale RS boots have a forefoot width of 101mm. Scarpa Maestrale RS randonee boots feature lugged Vibram soles for good grip while hiking on rock and snow.
