An Award Winning Boot now with Extra Oomph

Scarpa took the crossover boot category by storm last winter with the Freedom SL. Offering an impressive balance of touring prowess and power for inbounds laps, the Freedom SL was the boot to have to do it all. For the 2015/2016 season Scarpa has taken the original all mountain driver and tuned it up. Scarpa bumps the flex rating from 120 to 130 by utilizing a stiffer polyamide material in the cuff. The Freedom RS now offers less lateral flex and more control.

Like the Freedom SL, the Freedom RS differentiates itself with a uniquely functional tour mode. The 25 degree range of virtually friction-free cuff motion is impressive for a boot of this caliber. And while they may not feel like slippers, they are far from clunky at 4lbs 6oz (1/2 pair size 27). The Freedom comes out of the box with tech binding compatible soles and sticky rubber. If you would like to run these boots on a traditional downhill binding without a sliding AFD plate, the soles can be easily swapped out for DIN compatible soles. 

Although there is no in-your-face carbon fibre weave showing on the Freedom, carbon fibre is part of what makes this boot so special. A carbon frame runs the full length of the boot; the boot plastic is actually molded around this carbon frame. The interchangeable sole blocks lock into metal hardware directly fitted to this carbon frame. This construction reduces slop from poor sole block connections as well as creating a super stiff platform to transfer power from your legs to the ski.

    Best boot I have found

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 15th 2016

    I was looking for another pair of boots for last season. I heard about this Freedom RS boot was coming out for this season. So I waited and found them here at Bentgate.com This boot has lots of adjustments for fitting. In my case I removed the Scarpa supplied insoles, and got the black Superfeet heat moldable insoles. Then I heated up the Intuition liners, removed material in the instep areas (small flaps in each boot) and got a great fit. I didn't see the need for toe caps at all in fitting these liners at all.

    Scarpa really figured out the walk function out on these boots. Simple in design, adjustable and robust in construction. I've looked at the others available. Expensive but the quality, fit and walk function make them worth it IMHO. It matters if you like and go skiing enough I guess.

    I also bought the Scarpa Mountain Piste Soles so I could use them with all of my skis.
