What do you get when you combine the efforts of world-renowned climber Ueli Steck and SCARPA, the most innovative manufacturer of mountain footwear in the world? The perfect boot for rock, snow, ice, or approach: the Rebel GTX Carbon. Debuting at Outdoor Retailer this week, the Rebel weighs in at a mere 1lb, 7oz per boot.
Don’t conclude that any performance was sacrificed for weight savings, though. It’s made with the strongest, lightest materials available, including a carbon-fiber insole (hence, the name). The Rebel has a climbing shoe-like fit due to a low-profile Gore-Tex stretch tongue and a low-volume alpine last.
Ueli Steck, a SCARPA sponsored athlete, will be at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City this week. If you’re there, come meet him in person at SCARPA Booth 5000 from 2-3 pm Friday and Saturday. Ueli will be signing posters, promoting his film, The Swiss Machine, and talking about the Rebel GTX Carbon.
