Freedom SL Alpine Touring Ski Boots.
Last: 101 mm - A medium wide forefoot combined with comfortable instep height provide a comfortable, all day fit for a majority of skiers.
Freeride Last - The anatomical last for the best custom fit for freeriding. Designed for the freeriders’ needs, the specific last of the FREEDOM ensures a precise fit and high-performance, for smooth and precise skiing on the steep slopes.
Overlap Closure Technology - Designed to ensure a perfect wrap of the cuff and the shell. "Overlap Closure Technology" allows the correct movement of the ankle and creates direct power transmission to the skis.The front of the cuff is separated into two area, between the cuff buckle, for a uniform and precise closure of the tibial area. A different thickness and oblique profile on the bottom guarantees the correct wrapping of the forefoot without any point of pressure.
Asymetric Spoiler - Spoiler with asymmetric design and differentiated thicknesses. Adjustable in height.
Flex: 120 - Stiff and powerful flex for those who charge hard when they tour.
Steel Insert - Steel insert riveted on two points, which connects the Power Strap to the cuff, allows for a smooth, progressive flex when skiing.
Intuition FR Speed Liner - A full Ultralon foam, quick-drying liner with a reinforced cuff and tongue closure for incredible custom fit. Double pull tabs // I.C.S. (Intuition Control Support) Tongue // Cuff reinforcement // Black flex point // Flex point // Elastic on instep // Flat external stitching // Comfy toe box // Non-slip sole
Shell / Cuff - Pebax® Rnew is a bio-based plastic made from Castor seeds - powerful, light and "green" as well.
Carbon Core Technology - Power Transmission and anti-torsion control. Advanced technology for maximum performance. "Carbon Core Technology" is a carbon insert that is over-injected on the shell sole to stiffen the boot and improve the transmission of power to the ski throughout the length of the boot shell. Increased power for a high-level performance.
Advanced Injection Technology
Protective Rays - Molded onto the shell, these rays are designed to protect the first bottom buckle from accidental impacts.
Axial Power Control - A new dimension of performance for total control. "Axial Power Control" helps to improve the inclination of the joints of the ankle-knee for more precise edge grip. The inclination of 2 degrees medial axis allows for more sensitive and responsive skiing, especially on the steep slopes.
Choice of 10˚ and 18˚ Forward Lean
Scarpa® Ride Power Block® - Easy mechanism to unlock and lock due to the absence of the connecting rod between the shell and cuff. Friction is reduced to zero to maximize the freedom of movement during the walking. Total cuff range of 27 degrees.
Zeus Buckles - Light, easy to use with gloves on, with even pressure distribution and power
Top Buckles: Extended Buckle Racks - The last element of the rack plays an important role during the uphill: it efficiently locks the buckle, preventing any movement and guaranteeing optimum comfort during the walk.
Lower Buckle: Special Zipped Rack - Special hinged rack that simplifies getting in and out of the boot when the liner is on.
Scarpa® Finger Strap - A PU tab sewn to the power strap makes adjustments easy while wearing gloves.
Vibram® Mountain Plus Sole - Compatible with all ISO 9523 Alpine Touring and Tech bindings (Vibram® Mountain Piste ISO 5355 alpine sole available separately)
Core Connect Technology - Innovative system of attaching the sole to the shell – the sole is secured by a plate that is over-injected into the tip and metal nuts embedded in the shell. "Core Connect Technology " increases power transmission to the ski due to the reduced distance in between the foot and the ski.
