Finally, a hard-charging touring boot that sacrifices nothing on the ascent. The Maestrale RS boasts an impressive 130 flex with a weight of 1410g and 60 degree range of motion. Scarpa's Carbon Grilamid Web, noticeable near the heel of the shell, uses long fibers of carbon infused into the plastic to increase strength and stiffness while keeping weight to a minimum. For the 17-18 season, scarpa went to a 3 buckle design. The new design saves time and self equalizes the entire lower portion of the boot when making adjustments. Scarpa outfitted the Maestrale RS with the Speedlock Plus ski/walk mode. The simple lever on the back of the boot gets completely out of the way for friction free touring but securely locks the boot in place in ski mode. Completely heat moldable and exceptionally warm Intuition Cross Fit Pro Flex G liners come standard in the Maestrale RS. Light but stiff with a huge range of motion, the Maestrale is ready for your biggest mission and most demanding descent.

The lightest 120 flex ski boots in the world, this boots offers a walk mode with nearly 40 degrees of cuff travel, which makes them tour exceptionally well.

Asymetric tongue provides precise power transmission. Dynafit Quick step in System and Fitting Indicator System combines to make getting in/out of TLT bindings easier than ever before. Intuition Pro Flex RS. Predator RS instep strap allows for increased stiffness in the tongue, and is easy to engage with gloves. The RS stands for the German term Renn Sport, or racing sport. This translates to downhill performace in the Maestrale RS. Unique Axial Alpine closure combines the best of both overlap and cabrio boot constructions: super easy to get in/out, excellent volume adjustment, and strong support on the downhill. Vibram Cayman sole interfaces with bindings for maximum support and performance. Zeus buckles increase power and improve cuff closure.

Remember when backcountry touring meant wool sweaters and knickers, skinny skis, leather boots, and low-angle turns while whistling carefree tunes' Neither does the hard-charging Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot. Wool is great, as are mellow turns, but the Maestrale's more interested in shredding the crap out of steep chutes, ripping big faces, and slaying deep pow. It's 20% stiffer and only 1. 5oz heavier than the old Maestrale, with a burly 120 flex, stiff polyamide shell, and stout power strap that provide plenty of juice when the lines get big but still checks in at under 3. 5 lbs for most sizes, so you'll be able to make it up the skin track faster than your partner. The cuff also rotates a full 37, which isn't too far behind many more uphill-oriented AT boots. Scarpa's new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode makes it super easy to switch between uphill and downhill settings, and locks the cuff to the shell with two stiff metal pins for serious power and control without the risk of coming unlocked when you don't want it to. In conjunction with the Evo V-Frame cuff, this gives the Maestrale plenty of fore and aft stiffness, so you'll be able to crush it without feeling like you're wobbling backwards and forwards. Perhaps the Maestrale's most distinctive feature is the stiff Axial Alpine Pebax tongue, which hinges at the toe and pivots out away from the boot for super easy entry and exit, as well as a smooth and progressive flex that eliminates stiff and dead spots. It cinches down better than traditional overlap-style shells for uniform volume control through the forefoot, eliminating pinching and slop, and the oversize Zeus buckles and Predator HRS instep strap increase heel hold and power without making the Maestrale heavy and clunky. It comes complete with a heat-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS liner and Vibram Cayman rubber sole for a customizable fit and serious traction, respectively, and features Dynafit Quick Step-In tech inserts with the Fitting Ind...
