Scarpa has a winner in the Scarpa F1 Alpine Touring Ski Boots. Consistently mentioned as one of the best skiing super light touring boots on the market, the F1 gives you extra beef in the midfoot (often an under-engineered spot in touring shells) by adding a carbon insert when the shell is molded. That and the relatively stiff forward flex mean more precision on scary steeps and the ability to drive bigger skis with power. This still isn't the boot to buy if you're looking for something that skis like your alpine boots, but for the motivated fast 'n light ski tourist, these things rock.
Fit F1 Last – Innovative last, specifically designed for modern alpine-touring and an evolution of the Scarpa race last. The geometry is created according to the closure system, ensuring comfort and precision while skiing.
Bootfitter's Notes – Mid-wide forefoot and relaxed instep - great for average to wide feet.
Flex Flex: 95 – A balance of forgiveness and performance with the support you need for challenging descents.
Evo Tongue – The Pebax® tongue has a medial flex area-specific design. The flexible top edge allows an easy fit and natural walking.
