A stout boot for hard charging ladies Burly flex, high overlap cuff construction, asymmetrical bellows, oh yea! The Scott Minerva has everything you need and nothing you don't. The flex is slightly softer than the Men's Scott Voodoo but still plenty stiff to drive fat skis and provides plenty of confidence in high speed situations. Asymmetrical bellows give a natural feeling flex and prevent hot-spots. All this power comes in at an impressively low weight too. To achieve all this performance Scott uses four different injections to create a lower shell with just the right properties. Even though the Minerva crushes on the downhill, it rips on the way up too. A huge 46 degrees of cuff rotation allows for restriction free touring. Lock catches on the cuff buckles allow you to open up the buckles without losing your setting on the ladders. Plus, Scott's PWR Tour Liners offer plenty of warmth and comfort for any tour. With a heat moldable liner, adjustable canting, removable cuff spoilers, and micro adjust buckles, the Minerva can be customized for virtually any user. But it can't be customized for NTN bindings, so if that's what you have check out the Scott Minerva NTN. Features & Benefits a 100mm last. a Thermo-moldable PWR Tour liner. a 46 degrees of cuff rotation. a 13 degree forward lean.
Ladies rip just as hard as dudes (frequently harder, really), and they need a boot that can keep up, like the Scott Minerva 75mm Women's Telemark Boot. Only the hard-charginigest of the hard-chargers will need a boot with a burlier flex than the Minerva's progressive 120, and the asymmetrical bellows are designed to offer plenty of resistance without tossing smaller riders onto their heels. Throw in a rugged Pebax shell and four separate injection panels to keep the lower boot laterally stiff, and you'll be hard-pressed to show the Minerva a line it can't handle. Don't be under the impression that the Minerva is a foot and soul-crushing torture device, though. Scott built it with a snug but comfortable 100mm last, and it hooked it up with a fully-moldable, women-specific PWR Tour liner that'll hold you solidly in place without squeezing out any tears or curse words. It's also a fully-capable backcountry boot, with an easy ski/walk switch that gives you a generous 46 degrees of cuff rotation, making it as easy to access your lines as it is to crush 'em. Even the buckles are thoughtfully designed, having the ability to stay wide open when released, so you don't struggle getting into and out of your boots. If you can think of something Scott missed, send a letter and it'll probably get added to the next version.
