Scarpa Maestrale RS
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
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
Remember when backcountry touring meant wool sweaters and knickers, skinny skis, leather boots, and low-angle turns while whistling carefree tunes' Neither does the Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot. Wool is great, so too are mellow turns--after you shred the crap out of steep chutes and chomp up all the pow. The Maestrale RS is a boot that marries stiffness with swiftness. It takes on the ascent so you can take the descent with style and power. The RS Maestrale is only 40 grams heavier than the standard Maestrale, yet is twenty percent stiffer. With a burly 120 flex, super-light construction, combined cabrio and overlap design, and a liner that hugs a ripping performance right out of you, the Maestrale knows how to orchestrate on-hill brilliance. And its comfort and feathery weight keep you going all season long. Zeus buckles improve the cuff closure in ways you hadn't previously imagined, the unique instep strap encourages maximum heel hold and increased stiffness at the base of the tongue, and it's easy to engage with gloves on. Skin tracks get steep sometimes, and every once and a while they turn into mandatory boot packs. With the grip of the Vibram Cayman soles you'll gain purchase with every swing of the leg and inch ever closer to those butt-clenching steeps that really float your boat. Scarpa slapped the RS moniker on this boot to signify it as a performer of the highest degree. Although there are lighter boots (the Rush) or more burly boots (the Freedom SL) among Scarpa's AT offerings, none of them offer the comfort, warmth, and driving power that the Maestrale RS delivers on an everyday basis.
