SCARPA Gea RS 2.0 Boot


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.

  • Wave Closure System buckle wraps the lower shell around your forefoot for a secure fit.
  • Speedlock+ ski/walk mechanism brings the speed and reliability of an Alien or F1 to the Gea.
  • Carbon Grilamid Web Frame built into the lower shell increases stiffness and power.
  • Outdry venting in the cuff lowers weight and increases breathability.
  • Axial Alpine Evo Tongue brings heavy-hitting performance to a lightweight boot.
  • Grilamid Evo V-Frame Cuff is light, powerful, and breathable.

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.

Update 2021/22: The Gea RS has evolved into the Gea RS 3.0.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Fleur
Could you clarify the half sizes...
Are you saying a 24.5 is the same boot as the 25.0? I have tried the 25 but it was too big. I wanted a 24.5 but it sounds like I need a 24. 0?
Answer from Cole P
Hello Fleur, thanks for reaching out. You are correct, Scarpa boots will have the same bsl/sizing for 24.5 and 25. If the 25 was too big then you will want the 24.

Question from Chris C
Is the gea actually different from the mastreale or just different colors? thanks
Answer from Zak M
Hey Christian, there a few differences between the boots. The primary differences would be the color, sizes, liner shape, cuff height, and Scarpa does call the Maestrale RS a 125 flex compared to the Gea RS's 120.

Question from Carly Mahony
Will you be receiving more sizes of this boot this season? i am interested in a 24.5
Answer from jbo
Hi Carly, yes we are expecting more later this month. Note the size 25.0 is the same shell as the 24.5 and is scarcely any different. In fact they are identical if you have it heat molded (or after enough skiing).
