Scarpa Phantom 6000
Where to Buy
The Phantom 6000 for 2010 is among the lightest, most progressive, best-climbing alpine boots on the market to date.
Phantom series boots -- built for technical climbing in cold climates – were designed with the feedback and involvement of two SCARPA athletes in particular, climbers Ueli Steck and Simon Anthamatten. The two have been pushing the boundaries of alpine climbing in recent years, from the Himalayas to their home Alps.
New micro-porous polyurethane midsole inserts are 30 percent more shock absorbing than EVA used in other climbing boots on the market today. That means the Phantom yields substantial energy savings through decreased muscle fatigue when carrying a heavy pack and/or traveling in rough terrain.
A new rear elastic rand allows a super efficient heel lock, much like what is found in a rock shoe. This improves performance for all facets of climbing, but especially when using crampon front points on more technical terrain.
The Phantom series is also substantially lighter than its predecessors in the SCARPA line; great attention was paid to creating a lower-profile liner for improved climbing sensitivity that wouldn’t sacrifice warmth for climbing at elevations above 6000 meters or in other extremely cold situations.
