Improving on the massively popular original version, Scarpa’s all-new RS has carbon infused into its Grilamid lower and cuff, which simultaneously adds stiffness while shedding a full five ounces per boot. With 60 degrees of cuff motion, the Maestrale RS also has more stridability in walk mode, and its Intuition liner keeps your digits warm on long cold slogs. Testers were totally amped with the new boot, calling it “a backcountry touring weapon.” Stiffer, lighter, better touring, great warmer liner—what’s not to like?
