It's no secret that quality ski gear doesn’t come free. Therefore, it’s a welcome occurrence when manufacturers create a, “quiver killer,” or something that can fill multiple roles. When the ski boot whisperers at SCARPA decided to throw their hat into the ring, they knew they needed the guidance of an elite athlete who understood the intricacies of a piste performance boot. Thus started their relationship with Bode Miller, who is one of the most decorated ski racers in the world. The first child of their collaboration is the 4-Quattro. With its ability to be used in a GripWalk binding, stout 130 flex, and 4 buckle construction, the 4-Quattro fills this "quiver killer" role with poise. However, don’t be lulled into thinking the 4-Quattro is a downhill-oriented one-trick pony. It boasts an exceptional 61-degree range of motion and low weight for its class, meaning that even the longest of skin tracks won’t feel too laborious. From carving groomers, side-country laps, or big days in the backcountry, the 4-Quattro is ready for them all.

  • Grilamid Bio and Pebax round out a hardy and more environmentally friendly construction.
  • Presa sole works with GripWalk bindings further expanding the reach of this boot.
  • 4PRO Flex XT liner is made by Intuition and heat moldable for a customized fit.
  • Power straps are made by Booster strap, helping get maximum power transfer from the boot.
  • Shell and cuff are plant-based, lessening the environmental impact of the boot.

Questions & Reviews

Question from TJ Jambrovic
I'm quite interested in this boots and the main reason is (unlike what many others commented) - grip walk soles. Due to the 4Quatro xt soles ISO I am able to pair the boots with Cast Pivot 15 GW bindings without compromising the release values (as it would be the case with the boots I actually almost bought - Fischer Transalp Pro).

My question is - what do you think about pairing this boots with Cast Pivot and Elan Ripstick Tour 94?

I ski/tour mostly in the north east and European Alps and tend to do 50/50 resort/touring. After reading reviews and comments it seems that low volume of the boots will fit me well.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi TJ, the Quattro XT sounds like the boot for what you want to do. Not too many touring boots that hit this weight and range of motion have a GripWalk compatible sole. Low volume and skinny, indeed. They'll be a good 50/50 boot, offering alpine-like skiing performance but still touring quite well.

Question from Grant Lipman
It sounds as if this boot runs narrow, if does not fit at home what is your return policy?
Answer from Jeff
Hello Grant, Yes, it runs narrow and Low volume. If that doesn't sound like a good fit for you, please try our Boot fitter to help you find one that does work for you.
If a boot does not work for you, yes you can return unused.

Jordan D (downright abused product)
When I got my first backcountry boot 15 years ago I was floored how well it walked and how incredibly light it was. It didn't ski that well though

This is the same weight. It walks BETTER. It skis like a resort boot. It's not upright!

As a guide, my favorite ever boot

Chris (downright abused product)
I absolutely loved these boots until this happened. I have put these boots through almost 15 resort days, bumps, trees, steeps. Was skiing on a blue and felt a pop when driving a turn. Hopefully this is just a defect in my boot’s manufacturing process and not a systemic problem. I am 6’ -“ and 190 lbs. I’m sure Scarpa will take care of me but bummed that this will be on my mind with my replacement. The stiffness and fit was amazing while it lasted.

Benjamin K (used product a few times)
Tried these boots and the fit is very different for my feet than the Freedom RS, which would likely be considered it's precursor. The length felt about the same but the Quattro is much narrower around the front of the arch and somewhere in the instep. I think fit around the toes and ball of the foot were similar for me (but I might have just been distracted by the pain elsewhere). The Freedoms fit me pretty well, these boots are probably not even an option.

Question from Spencer
I've got an 'ancient' Scarpa Tornado Pro (white 3 buckle boot from ~ 2008). Its been solid for me for over a decade, touring and Alpine skiing. I'd like to replace with the Quattro but have questions on fit. Ive got a 28.5 w/ 324mm sole length. The listed sole length on a 28.5 is 316mm. Are these boots true to size? 28.5 in 2023 is 28.5 in 2008? Seems silly but I'm not interested in shipping boots all over the place to get sized appropriately. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Spencer, BSL's vary a lot depending on the boot and how much stuff they put in the mold to make it. Beefier boots have much longer BSL's than lighter touring boots, even in the same mondo size. Mondo sizes are the same as they've ever been, though. Please reach out to and we can help you find a boot that'll work for you!

Question from Brent
How is the ROM compared to Atomic Hawx and Scarpa F1? (Two other boots that I own)
Answer from Emmett I

The Quattro will be comparable or slightly better on the climbs than the Hawx, while the F1 will have much less friction and higher ROM.
Answer from Hayden
I can confirm that the range of motion in these boots is MUCH better than the Atomic Hawx. It’s not far behind the F1 with a bit more friction and slightly more limited forward range.
Answer this question:

Question from Eric Taylor
Hi there trying to grasp the fit of the Quattro XT or SL relative to my current Hoji Pro Tour in a size 28.5. My alpine boots have a 17 degree forward lean but the Hojis with the spoiler (purchased from Skimo) still make the boot feel upright compared to alpine boot and feel strange. Considering the Q XT to serve as one boot (patrolling and touring). Would the Quattro XT in a 28.5 or 28 shell have a similar sizing to the Hoji pro tour and the 17 degree forward lean be accurate? Thoughts?
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Eric, the Quattro XT is a significantly lower volume boot than the Hoji Pro Tour. It's got a snug fit throughout the foot and not a lot of instep height. If your foot is comfortable in a Hoji Pro Tour, I wouldn't expect the Quattro XT to fit very well. Please feel free to reach out to and we'd be happy to talk through some boot options with you!
Answer this question:

Anthony O (used product a few times)
Let me preface this review with a disclaimer: this is the highest performance downhill boot I've used, that also happens to be light and has a ridiculously friction free ROM. Absolutely 5 star and top of class in those regards.

It is 4 stars because of the gripwalk sole and elongated toe welt which does make it feel clunky when moving on hard surfaces when not skinning. It is also a coldish boot. And it also is one of the most painful boots that I've ever removed as far as the cuff usually separates and then ends up clamping directly on top of your Achilles tendon. These are all things I'm willing to live with.

Now where it is class leading five stars is downhill performance, weight and very friction-free ROM. This is the first four buckle boot that made me forget that I was skinning in a 4 buckle and made me feel like I was skinning in a one kilo boot of yesteryear. Except for the fact that I could drive skis aggressively through chop in these.

There are a couple of things that separate this boot from every other boot I've tried. A) It probably has the most aggressive forward lean settings that I'm aware of. B) It is extremely low volume, It honestly feels like a climbing shoe. And it is very low to the ground. These are not bad things but they definitely feel very different than any other boot than I've used. Surprisingly, despite being very low volume, they accommodate my fat foot quite well and with the exception of where the carbon reinforcement runs It punches extremely easily. The built-in booster strap is excellent and the buckles are less faffy than the zero g's version of wire buckles. I think too often that people pick boots based off of stats that don't actually fit them well obviously im guilty of this to some extent as well, however, after trying essentially every beef boot in the category, I will say that if this fits you, it is the best option even with its shortcomings. And by fit I also mean your forward stance. Some people are suited by a more upright stance boot and even if this boot accommodated your foot, it would not work for you if you fit that category. However, if you have a medium to widish foot that is low volume vertically, and want a very aggressive forward lean and a slipper like fit that is quite stiff then there's nothing better than I'm aware of.

If I was to create my perfect boot, it would essentially be this boot except with a full rubber vibram sole, a tad more rocker in the forefoot and a less protruding toe welt. Everything else is extremely refined.

On paper I wanted nothing to do with this boot and I thought it would not work for me and probably be too narrow and that it wouldn't walk well but I was wrong on all accounts. It certainly isn't necessarily a narrow boot, but it absolutely is low volume. I'm very glad that I tried this boot because it is considerably higher performance for me than others. Again with the caveat that it fits me well. I thought that I had a good fit in other boots until I tried this one.

I do feel like the heel cup could better, however, when it's all buckled up, the hold is perfect. It's only noticeable in uphill if you're running buckles on a slightly looser setting however, it doesn't feel quite as loose in the heel as the zero g, at least for my particular heel.

Question from Matt K
How does this compare to the Tecnica Zero G Pro Tour?

Trying to decide between these 2.
Nice stiff downhill oriented boot light enough for those bigger missions.

Currently on the Salomon shift pro 130 which is great but too heavy and limited rom.

Answer from Jeff
Hi Matt, it is a matter of fit. The Shift Pro is a generous 100mm last. Medium volume. The Zero G Pro Tour, more a true 99mm last.
These Quattro have a stated 100mm last, but we would classify as quite low volume.
Stiffness, very stiff, more then the Zero G. And the best cuff rotation in the category.
Answer from Matt K
Thanks Jeff!

Both fit me pretty well.
Seems like every review on the zero g is outstanding and many guides own a pair.

Scarpa is 200g heavier but more rom.
I am mostly doing 3000ft tours and occasionally more. Love to really push it on the downhill.

Maybe the 4 Quattro is the better choice?

Question from Erlend Aunevik

How will these be to punch out? Need to get them about 10 mm wider. Have been difficult to do with the Scarpa how have carbon integrated in the Grillamid, as the Alian RS.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Erlend,

The Scarpa 4 Quattro XT has a low volume fit out of the box. The shell can certainly be punched, but as with most touring boots, thinner materials mean that shell work is more limited than alpine boots.

If you have a wide foot, I would start with a wider boot before punching. This will give you a much higher chance of achieving a comfortable fit. The Dynafit Radical Pro has a high volume fit out of the box. It has plenty of power on the way down, and a lot of ROM for a boot in this category. If you have further fit questions, I would recommend reaching out to!

Question from Michael
How's the cuff volume on these? The only 'freeride' touring boots that can snug up well on my chicken legs are the Hawx Ultra XTDs. Only problem is that those boots are not too kind to my forefoot, and I wish that the Instep height was a little lower.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Michael,

The 4 Quattro has pretty average calf volume considering the low volume fit in the forefoot. I think it would be worth filling out a boot fitter to figure out a liner and boot combo that makes more sense for your foot!
Answer this question:

Question from Espen
How is this compared to the Maestrale XT in height on the leg, stiffness/downhill performance and fit?
Answer from Emmett I
Hi Espen,
Fit-wise, the Quattro is narrower and has a much lower instep than the Maestrale XT. The downhill performance is similar enough that the deciding factor will certainly be which one fits your foot better. If you'd like, you can fill out our boot fitter and we'll let you know what would be the best fit for you!
Answer this question:

Question from Ross K
Looking at this for a patrol boot for the east coast. How warm are these boots for extended periods of time?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Ross,

The 4 Quattro has a pretty robust intuition liner for a backcountry ski boot. However, Compared with a traditional resort boot, the liner is definitely thinner. These boots will run cooler, especially when not moving around a lot, or just riding lifts.

Keep in mind, everyone's number of cold injuries and circulation is different!
Answer this question:

Question from jonathan
Hi, I'm looking for a (1 does most) set up to travel with. This will involve colder conditions, and a blend of lift served, sidecountry, heli/cat, combo lift served touring. I normally use Movement Alptracks 89 + Marker Alpinist and Fischer Traverse carbon for dedicated touring. I use scarpa + Volkl Kendo + 22 designs Tele for lift served.
Please can you suggest a ski and binding to go with the Scarpa Quattro boot ? I'm thinking a 95mm-100m waist ski in the 1500-1700g range and a binding that I can tour or use in the resort. I like the way the Marker Alpinist skis but am unsure about the suitability for mechanised access. Thanks
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Jonathon! Here would be a few options worth considering:

Skis: Dynafit Free 97 or Salomon MTN Explore 95

Bindings: Dynafit ST Rotation or ATK Raider 12.

Eric S (hasn't used product)
Folks considering these boots may find it useful to know that the fit is definitely much better for narrow/low volume feet than the tradiational Scarpa fit (e.g., Maestrale). I am extremely happy with the fit, which I have not been able to say about Scarpa AT boots.

It may also be of interest to know that contrary to reports on at least two "review" sites I've seen, the fit of the SL version of this boot is not any different. I checked with calipers: it's identical, as one would expect given that Scarpa would obviously be using the same mold.

Full disclosure: I have not yet got these on the snow. I will update this review once the season is underway!

Question from Adam
Thanks for the answer below Jeff. More stated ROM is great, but I've found that often stated ROM isn't really the limiter in how good a boot feels to walk. Instead it's how much friction there is in the walk mode (I.e. the Maestrale feels like you have to put in more effort to move the boot within it's ROM than the ZGTP and similarly the ZGTP has more friction within it's ROM than the Radical). How does the 4 Quattro compare in this regard?
Answer from Jeff
Hi Adam, you are right. Mostly it comes down to the liners and opening the cuff buckles. Scarpa of course does a great job with their custom Intuition liners to make a free pivoting cuff. They did quite well in the Quattro. The liners are noticeably less thick then the liners in the Maestrale. I test with and without unbuckling the cuff. The Quattro does need to be fully unbuckled to get the the ROM.
Answer from jbo
Hi Adam, you are correct, the range of motion tells less than half the story. The Quattro is actually a decent walking beef boot: noticeably better than the Maestrale, similar to the ZGTP, and not quite approaching the Radical Pro.
Answer this question:

Question from Justin G
Hey Guys,

Any idea how these will fit compared to the Zero G Tour Pro of F1LT (I know thats in a totally different class of boots)

I have a size 26 F1LT that fits well and a 26.5 ZGTP that feels a little bigger than I would like.

Answer from Jeff
Justin, They are lower volume then both of those. Width is comparable, but feels smaller out of the box. I ski the Alien RS (F1 LT lower shell) and the Quattro feels a good bit lower over the instep. But doable.
Answer this question:

Question from Adam
How does the walk mode on these compare to the Maestrale RS and/or the Dynafit Radical Pro?
Answer from Jeff
Adam, All great boots, all very different fits.
The new Quattro wins for cuff rotation. The numbers are just one degree more, but it feel like more. Awesome for a Very stiff 4 buckle boot. The fit is very low volume, so someone whos skis a Maestrale or Radical Pro is very unlikely to fit in the Quattro.
Answer this question:

Question from Ryan
This boot confuses me - it's listed as a hybrid but apparently walks better than many "pure" options in the category while remaining competitively light.

For those of us with dialled alpine boots looking for a pure touring boot - could this be a good option (Assuming that it fits).

How would you describe the fit profile? What shape foot works best? In my case I'm dealing with a narrower heel, slimmer calf and tall instep. My forefoot is about average width.
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Ryan. Very simply, if you prioritize downhill performance, this could be used as a dedicated touring boot. If you want something that is a bit more balanced up and down, a touring boot would be great to check out. From my experience, this is the lowest volume boot (when downsized) in the freeride category. For example, going with the 25.5-26.0 Quattro vs a 26.0-26.5 size from another brand. The Quattro has a tight heel/ankle, average forefoot, with a fairly low instep. For more of an in-depth boot recommendation, please check out our online bootfitter here.
