If we had to compare the F1 GT to its LT sibling, we’d have to say they are “similar but different.” Being composed of Grilamid instead of the mystical Carbon/Grilamid mixture of the LT, the GT carries a few more grams, however, it also sports a more progressive flex, which many skiers will appreciate. Specific to the GT, SCARPA added an instep buckle instead of a BOA, which adds durability while also allowing the foot to be securely locked down to help you fully enjoy the descent. For the ascent, the GT has a 72° range of motion and Vibram UFO LT sole that will have you flying up the skin track at speeds most often seen in Area 51. Built for big days in the mountains, the F1 GT will happily accompany you wherever the skin track leads.

  • Tour L T2 Liner is made by Intuition and highly moldable, allowing for a truly customized fit.
  • 72° range of motion will make short work of the ascent.
  • Recco insert can help rescuers find you in unfortunate circumstances.
  • Forward lean of 9°, 11°, or 13° (+/- 2) allows you adjust the forward lean to your preference.
  • Vibram UFO LT outsole provides out-of-this-world traction.
  • More progressive flex than the F1 LT due to the full Grilamid lower.
  • Two buckles and a power strap provide excellent power transmission.
  • Shell can be punched, helping to further customize the fit if needed.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Taylor Brown
What is the flex rating of this boot?
I have the F1 LT and wish they could be a tad stiffer for the down and I really dislike the boa.
The GT looks great!
Answer from Jeff
Taylor, New boots coming out and variations of old ones (this GT) and the F1 LT is still the stiffest. Great boot. Flex ratings are not a concrete measurement but just for comparison. Scarpa does list the F1 LT at 100 and the new GT at 90. I would say/guess that the slight change in plastic won't feel that different in overall flex. I don't have details about you, which skis you are using these on or where you are skiing. But if some days you are using a bigger ski, in more challenging terrain or snow, you may need much more boot. Feel free to email us to go into detail.

Question from Erik Badger
How do these compare to the Skorpius? Fit, performance etc.
Answer from Jeff
Hello Erik,
Start with the important part, Fit. The Skorpius has a low volume fit with a med/wide toe box. Nice for some folks. The new version will have that same fit but with more instep height. The F1 LT/ GT is a low to medium fit with a tapered toe box. As mentioned below, the GT should better accept a punch, but not too much.
Performance. For the light Touring boots, they are both at the top of the list for DH performance. The Skorpius still includes a tongue, so that should give them an edge. But the new heavier GT will be very close, possibly a wash.

Question from Kyle J
My experience with the LT was such that punching would not get me the space I needed. What little width I could get, lead to less vertical volume...

Considering the difference in plastics between this and the LT... Do you anticipate the GT being a bit easier to punch?
Answer from Cole P
Hey Kyle, you are absolutely correct. The GT is made with Grilamid which is workable by a boot fitter. Still, working with thin materials it is still possible to lose vertical volumes as you punch it out for width. That can be said for any boot, but overall yes, this boot can take a punch where the F1 LT is very difficult to stretch at all.
