SCARPA comes to this category from the touring side, so it’s not surprising that no boot beats it for uphill comfort and efficiency. The range of motion of its hike mode is free-hinging and long, and Pebax plastic keeps it feather-light. Testers warn that its liner should be heat-mold- ed before use; that greatly improves its fit. And buyers can choose between interchangeable alpine or AT soles. “This boot rips,” said Adams. “No problem driving a wide ski in GS arcs on the groomed or in bumps.”
