THE TRANSITION BETWEEN TREKKING AND MOUNTAIN BOOTS

Scarpa’s Rebel line has been evolving with the design input of Ueli Steck. The Rebel Lite offers the DNA of Scarpa’s top climbing boots in a lighter form and is perfect for the consumer looking for a hybrid boot that will not only walk well but also climb, scramble, via Ferrata and take the occasional use of crampons for a summit dash or glacier crossing.

 

There are 3 distinct features to the Rebel family -

- The new NAG last provides all day comfort, but focuses the foot in a toe central position making the boots climb really well.

- The sock fit tongue gusset made of Schoeller fabric reduces bulk and weight and literally sucks the volume out of the boot like the elastic gusset of a rock slipper.

- Its triple injection PU layers in the sole wedge provide the state of the art in weight reduction and underfoot comfort.

 

The Rebel Lite is GTX lined and the outsole is a new Vibram Mulaz which offers an improved cleating depth in all zones of the sole.

Its TPU crampon ledge allows the use of a new matic style binding (this boots does stretch the traditional  thinking behind a conventional B2 boot classification given  the boots apparent softness, however it has been extensively tested by guides in the Dolomites and by Brian hall in a New Zealand winter). The add a flex bar to a pair of Grivel Air Tech new matic for example makes a great combination or use a classic C1 rated crampon like the Grivel G10 NC

Charmoz Pro GTX

The Charmoz has quickly become the "go to" boot for summer alpine and UK winter walking enthusiasts, who demand minimal weight, and those same people can expect the Charmoz Pro to perform the same.  The only difference is that we've tweaked the uppers to be a bit more cosmetically appealing.  It still has the great Vibram Mulaz outsole, the snug yet supportive FT last and the same high performance Gore-Tex to keep your feet dry and comfortable in the summer and winter.   This boot is a Vegan friendly product.
