La Sportiva Skorpius CR II Boot
In Stock & Ships Today
The Skorpius made a splash when it debuted, owing to its balance of stiffness and hikeability. Picking up where the original left off, La Sportiva's Skorpius the Second uses carbon-infused Pebax material throughout the shell and cuff. The tongue has been reinforced, averting the occasional breakage issues seen with previous versions of the boot. To suit a wider audience, the instep is higher, with an offset boa maintaining the precise heel hold Skorpius users have come to expect. With three forward lean settings, a moldable liner, and a Grip Guard sole, this boot has technical ski mountaineering credentials while also being comfortable enough for more quotidian outings. Make your feet proud and your friends jealous with the La Sportiva Skorpius CR II!

Questions & Reviews
The Hoji Pro Tours and Skorpius CR II exist in different categories of boots, the Hoji's being a more freeride-oriented boot while the Skorpius focuses on general light touring. That being said, the Skorpius certainly punch above their weight class. So, you would lose some general downhill performance by switching to the Skorpius however you'd retain a stiff flex and importantly a similar fit.
The forward lean on the La Sportiva Skorpius CR is adjusted via a spoiler. If you are missing that part, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will see what we can do.
I think the MTN Summit skis well for its weight and maintains a decent flex. I'm not on board with the category-breaking rumors I've been hearing.
