Hurricane vs.Hurricane Pro: Differences and Similarities

Jan. 17th 2012

When it comes to weather, we all like a good natural disaster. When a category four hurricane gets an upgrade to five, well, that’s when the party starts. So, it goes for SCARPA. In the case of the upgraded Hurricane Pro, the increases to the dynamic freeride boot have made a solid boot even better. With great attention to detail, SCARPA has focused on the highlights of the original Hurricane, and strived to make them more refined, efficient and stronger for the Pro.

SCARPA Hurricane wins Skiing Magazine ‘Tester’s Choice’ Award

Nov. 8th 2010

Here at SCARPA, the stoke level is high. Why, you might ask? Well, it’s getting close to ski season…

But, to be more specific, we’re also stoked about accolades this month for the Hurricane from Skiing Magazine’s testers.

In this year’s Skiing Magazine’s Annual Gear Guide, the boot section opens by preaching the gospel of skiing with this nugget of wisdom: “as the interface between you and your skis, boots are your most crucial piece of gear.”


So, winning a 2011 ‘Tester’s Choice’ Award in the boot category has us pretty excited, especially because we weren’t just up against other manufacturers of backcountry boots, but all the alpine boot makers as well.
