Looking to push the alpine touring envelope even further, Scarpa revealed their lightest AT boots yet for 2011. The new Rush and the women's Blink are lighter versions of the 2010 Maestrale and Gea, while the new Alien 1.0 carbon fiber racing boot takes the F1 CARBON to the next level.
The new lightweight 3 buckle Scarpa AT boots are made for effortless uphill travel with a surprising amount of power on the downhill. The men's Rush weighs 3 lbs 2 oz and the women's Blink just 2 lbs 13 oz.
Offering the best of overlap and cabrio boot construction, Scarpa's Alpine Axial closure system increases comfort and enhances control and power transmission to the edge of your ski. The double hinged T-Wing forefoot portion of the system makes it super easy to get in and out of your boots.
The incredible 39 degree range of cuff motion on the Scarpa AT boots enables great mobility for ski touring. Boot details include magnesium buckles and quick-step fittings for easy in/out of your TLT bindings.
The Rush and the Blink Alpine Touring boots will retail for $559.
All you rando or ski mountaineering racers will be excited by the new Scarpa Alien 1.0 unveiled at ISPO. An ultra racing boot, the Alien 1.0 weighs just 680 grams.
Scarpa's Carbon Core Technology gives the racing boot a lightweight shell with carbon fiber extending into the foot for extra rigidity that you can't get with plastic alone. The overlap system in the Intuition liner provides maximum comfort for your foot and ankle.
With no tongue or buckles, the Alien 1.0 uses the Boa closure system to secure your foot and give you micro fit adjustability. A flap protects your instep from the snow while a gaiter accessory will be available for maximum water resistance. The Alien 1.0 uses the same aluminum rear lever closed with Kevlar cord as seen in the F1 CARBON.
The Scarpa Alien 1.0 will retail for around $1600 and be available starting October 2011.
