La Sportiva Spectre 2.0 Backcountry Ski Boot

The La Sportiva Spectre was the best selling boot at the shop. And for good reason, it fits almost any foot size and is stiff and light. The updated version, the Spectre 2.0, is sure to beat it out. Already an impressively light, yet stiff, 4 buckle boot, the 2.0's have an additional five percent more stiffness thanks to additional strength added at the cuff pivot and back-calf area of the boot. This translates to a true 120 flex as compared to the originals. For the weight conscious tourers among us, these boots weigh in at 1445 grams/boot and have a 60 degree range of motion, making them some of the lightest and stiffest touring boots on the market. The cuff and tongue are made out of light and burly Grilamid, with a Pebax shell, and Vibram sole. Whatever uphill binding you have, these boots will fit it, including your older siblings ancient and heavy step-ins. 

Boot Fitters Tip: The Spectre is the widest fitting boot on the market. If it does not feel wide when you first try it on it maybe because of the progressive shape of the boot and a footbed or footboard could pull you up into the widest part of the boot. The biggest issue with the Spectre in its first edition was that the cuff sections came together right where the liner seam produced a hard ridge. La Sportiva has fixed this issue with a whole new redesigned

Is renting right for you?

Rentals are a great way to lower the cost for your first time trying the sport and narrowing down what you are looking for. We rent both super light fitness setups for resort uphilling as well as all mountain skis better for backcountry and soft snow.

There are a few limitations of renting. Most importantly the demands on your feet for walking uphill in a hard plastic require a level of boot fitting and customization that is impossible to get in rental boot. This could set you up for some discomfort. There are too many models of skis out there to try them all, so demoing to buy has become impossible. In the end, once you are hooked for the sport, working with our backcountry experts will be the most efficient and least expensive way to get dialed in the perfect setup for you.
