Description

To keep things simple: high-tech equals hard-charging.

The Scarpa Freedom Alpine Touring Boot is packed full of high-tech materials and constructs. It's got patented Carbon Core, Advanced Injection, patented Ride Power Block, and Axial Power Control technologies; it was toiled over by gram-counting geeks. All you have to know is that it all means a lighter, thinner, stronger, stiffer, torsionally rigid, and super-powerful downhill machine. The Overlap closure system delivers a gap-free fit for optimal energy transfer, which also translates to power. No doubt about it, this freeride boot is light as a feather and friction-free on the hike and a beast on the descent. Do you really need to know that it was over-molded a carbon fiber frame to achieve this? Well, now you do.

An anatomic 101-millimeter last gives your foot some wiggle room, nice for the climb, and features Axial Power for lateral stiffness and control. The instant-fit FR liner boot is molded to the shell and shaped to the last for seamless fit and performance. This precise fit adds to the warmth this liner provides, which you'll notice on those scenery-loving breaks on the summit. The Ride Power Block allows a 27-degree range of motion on the hike and locks down securely for a fearless downhill. Vibram's Mountain Piste sole fits all alpine bindings and is interchangeable with an AT-compatible sole (optional). The Freedom and Freedom SL make up Scarpa's hard-charging freeride line.

Good boot - great service

I had some issues finding the right fit at first but Backcountry was a dream working with me to get the right boot. Changing from my Salomon 27.5 size ultimately needed a 28.0 in these. Very happy with the boot, compatible with my Marker Baron bindings, planning to use for many days of both resort and backcountry skiing. Thanks!

will these boots work with my salomon guardian 16 bindings?

Pretty good touring boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this as my first AT boot after having only skied race heritage boots for the last 20 years. I didn't want some super lite 1 buckle ski-mo boot that couldn't descend. Went with the regular freedom (vs the SL) due to the smoother PU flex and some easy opportunities to drop some weight.

Overall, I'm pleased but not over the moon. The stock liner is a brick, so I swapped to an Intuition and lost over 200 grams right there [getting pretty close to the SL weight). On the uphill, they're great. Comfortable, great range of motion, don't feel heavy at all.

On the descent, they're good, but I'm experiencing some weird flex issues. First, the forward flex is quite soft, which may be due to the warm temps this winter. Need to get them out on a cold day and see if they feel different. Second, seems the tighter I buckle the boot, the softer the flex becomes, especially at the cuff. I did experiment with adding a booster strap, but it didn't have a profound effect.

Overall, a pretty solid boot for alpine touring at a good price.

-Update 4/5/15-

Had some colder temps recently and the flex of these boots is more to my liking. Still not super stiff, but not collapsing on me. The flex issues due to buckling also seem less pronounced.

Can any one tell me what the shell size...

Can any one tell me what the shell size is for a 25.5 and 26.5?

Hey Nigel Arkell,

Thanks for your question.

Unfortunately we do not have a 25.5 on hand so i was not able to look at that for you. But we do have a 26.5 and that BSL is 307 mm.

I hope this helps.

Can you put the marker duke and this boot...

Can you put the marker duke and this boot on MAdshus annum ski's? I want a more AT/locked heel setup on my new Annum ski's rather than 3 pin free heel tele?..I'd like like to be able to kick glide all day and and lock in at hills. Any suggestions for a boot binding setup on the MAdshus Annum like this?

Thanks!!!! Why is it called a "non Tech" binding. Advantages to a "tech" vs "non"? Sorry, its confusing, I'm a snowboarder of 12 years but have been getting way into xc skiing, just wanna advance it all but am unfamiliar with gear n lingo obviously! Hey thanks again!
