For good reason, the Gea RS was one of the best-selling women’s alpine touring boots of all time. SCARPA gave the 2.0 version a substantial overhaul and it’s better than ever. Substantially increasing the cuff articulation and dropping enough weight to satisfy our cravings, SCARPA made the Gea RS 2.0 impossible to resist. Thanks to the strategically placed Grilamid/carbon frame that minimizes unwanted flexing, you can ski at even more terrifying speeds. The gargantuan Velcro strap at the top helps increase the effective cuff height for more power and precision. Borrowing light ‘n fast treatment from the F1, the walk/ski switch has been simplified and a buckle has been removed to speed up transitions. Improved climbing and skiing prowess? It’s true. With the best aspects of both a lightweight touring boot and a freeride boot, the Gea RS 2.0 is ready to rip.
Update 2019/20: SCARPA installed a Recco receiver in the power strap, so you don't have to worry if you lose your boot (what happened?!?). The color scheme was also tweaked.
