The Spitfire is La Sportiva's premium all-around ski mountaineering boot, and is chock full of trademarked innovations that leverage years of experience in footwear design. Two buckles on a G-Shell™ shell and Carbon Reinforced Polymer (CRP) Cuff™ make this a light and fast touring boot with serious skiability. After experiencing the amazing 68 degree range of motion in walk mode, expect quick transitions with a patent pending Cam Closure System™ that locks you into ski mode with one flip of the QuickBuckle™. Then rely on the Vertebra Technology™ to provide a stiff backbone for precision turns on the down. La Sportiva didn't leave out the comforts with a generous last, flex-zoned Paulau™ liners, and added cold protection from the WarmSole™ insoles.
The boot comes with the 14º lean plate installed. To change the lean settings, use a screwdriver to replace the plate with either the higher or lower notched plates included in the box.
