All in the Family: The Maestrale Line

Oct. 28th 2014

The Maestrales are a celebrated family. Designed and built to be a complete backcountry performer regardless of conditions, they’ve distinguished themselves as the alpine touring boot archetype—a can-do workhorse that’s spry, strong, and easy to work with. They’re also easy to look at. Positioning themselves between the uber-light ethos of the new F1 Evo and the hard-charging Freedom SL, the Maestrale and Gea lines occupy a larger world of backcountry universality so, naturally, we’re giving them an upgrade.

SCARPA’S Pebax Rnew AT and Tele boots, lower impact and higher performance

Feb. 10th 2011

Skiers are persnickety. We claim to be for the environment, but sometimes our quest for glory comes with a price. We want high performance tools of the trade, which are oftentimes at odds with environmental responsibility. Not to worry… in the case with some SCARPA ski boots, choosing high performance gear may also be the right call for the environment.

In 2009, SCARPA introduced its Planet Friendly program, which marked our most comprehensive effort at building footwear while minimizing our environmental impact.

From reducing carbon footprint, energy consumption,  or after-life impact, we are working with our suppliers to use materials and technologies to help us make footwear that really is lower-impact product.
