SCOTT Freeguide Carbon Alpine Touring Boot

1 item left

What do you want in an aggressive hard-charging alpine touring ski boot? The new Scott Freeguide Carbon is the stiff, progressive flexing boot that we want.  We want it to be relatively lightweight and for it to walk uphill without compromise.  We want it to work with any type of binding.  We want it to fit like a well worn glove. If you want these same things, then like us you want the Scott Freeguide Carbon alpine touring ski boot. 

Many moons ago Scott Sports took over Garmont boots andvoilà they had a complete and reputable alpine touring boot line to add to their celebrated winter sports products.  Many more moons later, we were still waiting for the innovators of Scott Sports to create their own alpine touring boot from the ground up and not just offer improved upon Garmont boots. 

Well that time has finally come with the radically all new Freeguide Carbon boot that is truly designed ground up by the Swiss engineers at Scott Sports. Made from carbon-reinforced Grilamid (the good stuff), the Freeguide has a true 130 flex stiffness that is achieved with a partial overlap cuff, creating a more progressive forward boot flex.  The CabrioHybrid design uses a dual-action tongue that provides 60 degrees of resistance-free motion that is unheard of in an overlap constructed boot. 60 degrees of upper cuff pivot, is driving your car with your boots on kind of movement.

The Freeguide innovation continues with their carbon fiber injection process, in which the Grilamid base and the carbon fiber inserts are molded into one single component, resulting in a lighter, stiffer boot that is stable at all temperatures.   Round this out with a newly designed warm, thermo-moldable inner liner that locks your feet precisely in the boot for the up and the down thanks to the micro adjustable Boa locking system. 

This boot has a performance minded fit with a 101 last that is a big departure from the historic Scott/Garmont wider lasted toe box. With the 130 progressive flexing sized 26.5 Freeride Carbon boot weighing in at a head-scratching 1455 grams, we say this boot was well worth the wait!

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.
