SCARPA is an Italian manufacturer that has been handcrafting footwear since 1938. An early bond formed between the company and the local mountaineering culture that eventually led to it's currenty position as a market leader. SCARPA makes a wide range of quality backcountry ski boots, and we are especially impressed with their Alien series.
A third Alien has landed! And this one is not cheap like the 1.0. That’s because SCARPA used 100% carbon fiber in both the upper and lower shell, shedding hundreds of grams in the process. The result is a skimo racing machine, built for serious competitor..
SCARPA says that never before has anything this lightweight provided this much performance. At Skimo Co, we tend to agree. Liberal use of carbon fiber and a cleverly designed minimalist buckle system allows these boots to cross the finish line at a scant ..

Here’s what happened: the recalled F1 Evo boots were melted down, fed to an improved boot making machine, and spit out into boxes. You can now have your boots back, which were the only ones that fit, we know! The improved F1 is virtually the same boot as ..
The Maestrale RS is one of the bestselling backcountry ski boots of all time. Generally, the rule of thumb for a time-tested classic is to not modify it much. That is unless you plan on making it lighter, increasing stiffness, and vastly improving the wal..
Racing and touring is hard on liners. Sweat builds up; articulation causes chaffing. Replace your SCARPA boot liners with a fresh pair, listed below by model.
Alien 1.0 - Intuition Light liner is as snug as a sock. In fact, you have to put it on before..
The extra-terrestrial design of the SCARPA Alien / Alien 1.0 boots has one major consequence of shaving all those grams: the liner is exposed to the elements. Remedies include wearing skin-tight suits with stirrups, using this handy gaiter, or only skiing..
