Scarpa Maestrale RS White/Black/Azure
The new Maestrale RS is the perfect blend of performance and backcountry functionality. The RS utilizes a bi-injection carbon-infused Grilamid® Lambda Frame shell to add power and rigidity without adding weight. The Thor cuff, which now utilizes Grilamid Bio – a planet friendly, renewable resource – also increases torsional rigidity while also providing a 60-degree range of motion for long efficient strides. The HRS strap keeps your heel planted where it should be to increase performance and comfort on the way up and down while the lower Wave Closure system provides the same security as a 2-buckle system at a fraction of the weight. The glove-friendly Finger Strap features RECCO® Technology for increased avalanche searchability. The Maestrale RS is for experienced backcountry skiers looking for uncompromising performance.

GRILAMID® BIO THOR CUFF: Developed by our long-time partner Ems-Grivory, Grilamid Bio comes from their GREENLINE of bio-based polyamides. Using plant derived Castor oil rather than petroleum based oil, Grilamid Bio significantly reduces CO2 emissions during production, while maintaining the outstanding properties of rigidity and elasticity required. Castor plants grow well in semi-arid regions and do not compete with food crops, making it an excellent alternative to fossil based sources. Grilamid Bio is non-biodegradable, but is completely recyclable.
WAVE CLOSURE SYSTEM: The Wave closure system, made exclusively for SCARPA®, delivers two buckle closure strength security without adding extra weight.
Grilamid®: This special polyamide offers a good compromise between stiffness and rebound; allowing a gradual transmission of the impulses from the boot to the ski during the ski phase.
Pebax by Arkema: Pebax offers a unique combination of high performance properties: sustained flexibility at low temperature, high cold impact resistance, and outstanding energy return.
Eco: Our products tread the most wonderful and unspoiled landscapes on earth. We feel we must do our best to preserve these landscapes. “Planet Friendly”, products made of environment-friendly materials refers to products in which materials and processes are specifically chosen for their environmentally friendly characteristics.
RECCO®: RECCO® technology makes you searchable in the event of an avalanche accident. RECCO® reflectors enable professional rescuers to rapidly pinpoint a buried person’s location using the RECCO® detector. Reflectors are not a substitute for transceiver use. Complementary in function, the RECCO® technology increases the chance of being found in time.
Vegan: This SCARPA Vegan symbol and designation is given to products that do not contain any materials sourced from animals or that utilize any kind of animal testing. All of the materials sourced for these Vegan products utilize fully synthetic materials with no components coming from animals, including the glues used in soling.
VIBRAM®: Vibram® is the world leader in high performance rubber soles and compounds, targeted to the outdoor, work, recreation, fashion, repair and orthopedic markets.
SCARPA Ski Sizing Chart
- All SCARPA ski boots use Mondo sizing.
- SCARPA ski boots break on the half size, this means that a half size shares the same shell length as the whole size above it but the liners are lasted for each 1/2 size. For example, a 25.5 and 26.0 are the same shell size but the respective liners come pre-molded to the half size.
- Some skiers may want to downsize up to 1 full Mondo size, depending upon personal preference.
