SCARPA <BR /> Alien 1.0 <BR /> Winter 2018.19

There is a new star in the world of racing: SCARPA® Alien 1.0.

Every detail of the 2018 version has been improved with the aim of optimising performance, increasing heat insulation and being more accessible to all ski-mountaineering competition enthusiasts. The new shape of the cuff is derived from the 3.0 and the shell is made of rigid Carbon Grilamid, providing stiffness thus stability and control for your feet on descents. The innovative integrated gaiters offer complete protection from the snow. The neon yellow and black colour combination continues to be an unmistakable combination for ski mountaineering competitions. The UFO Vibram® sole, a SCARPA® exclusive, has been developed based on international ISFM (International Ski Mountaineering Federation) standards.

BOA CLOSURE SYSTEM:  The BOA® system offers a customised closure and fit for the utmost comfort without pressure points. The hidden guides have been
installed inside the shell to ease directly onto the inner boot, increasing sensitivity and feeling around your feet. The cable with its special coating reduces abrasion and improves flow. The rotor is installed on a flexible outer tongue that leads down to the toe, allowing the boot to gradually wrap around the foot
without any pressure points.

CARBON CUFF: The Carbon Cuff is an ergonomic cuff that acts like a backbone supporting the leg. This technology enhances the drive and edge control
of the skis.

GAITER 0.1: The gaiter is made with interweaving nylon and spandex fibres that come together to offer outstanding elasticity. The heat-sealed PU film in the lower part improves protection and insulation in the most critical and sensitive areas. The upper elastic strap keeps the gaiter in place for dynamic comfort without any pressure points.
