Scarpa Maestrale Rs

This is my second winter on these boots and I couldn’t be more psyched on them.  Scarpa designed this boot for people who like to drive big skis and charge but still want the lightweight functionality of a touring boot.  The 4 buckle design keeps my feet locked in ski mode allowing me to ski steep, aggressive lines.  They are the lightest boots on the market with a 120 flex.   They come with Scarpa’s patented Intuition liners, a fully thermo-moldable liner, giving the boots unmatched fit and comfort.

Tour mode in the Maestrale Rs is just as impressive.  They feature an incredible 40 degrees of cuff travel while weighing in at a mere 3lbs 7oz per boot!  Scarpa has hit the mark with this ski boot.  These boots come with Dynafit fittings compatible with a tech binding or any other touring binding.

The Maestrale Rs is a harmonious blend of comfort, flex for touring, and stiffness for the down.  I’ve even climbed some easy ice pitches in them!

If you like charging in the backcountry yet still want to save some pounds on your 6,000ft touring day, the Scarpa Maestrale Rs is for you.
