Light. Fast. Dependable. Those are the three words Ueli Steck wants to hear when he thinks about designing boots with SCARPA. Their latest collaboration is just that: The Rebel GTX Carbon is the designing duo’s most recent masterpiece in alpine performance and versatility. Comfortable on snow, rock and ice, the Rebel is home anywhere in the alpine landscape. Absolute commitment is paramount in climbing at this level, so why shouldn’t absolute commitment be made to creating the best boot possible? SCARPA and Ueli Steck are on the same page, and the Rebel is testament to that commitment.

Ueli has made a point of balancing marathon style endurance with technical craftsmanship in his pursuits of climbing long alpine routes. SCARPA wants to help him develop the best possible tools with which to continue on his path. The Rebel is meant to be as comfortable as a running shoe, nimble as a rock shoe, and yet crampon compatible, and tough enough to perform in the high peaks, allowing him to climb at his limit with confidence.

SCARPA and Ueli Steck collaborate to create Rebel GTX Carbon

Aug. 3rd 2011

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.
