A soft, wimpy, tank-like boot is the enemy. Here's your BFF.
All the ladies in the house say, 'Yea!' Take a gander at the Scarpa Women's Gea RS Alpine Touring Boot, a burly 120-flex, eco-friendly-constructed, Axial Alpine-designed ripping AT boot—just for you. Superlight, with generously wide walk mode and a women's Intuition liner, this boot will take you on a whirlwind tour of fast climbs and way faster descents. Huck yourself into pristine pow and bomb down skinny chutes; there's nothing to fear but an ill-fitting, noodley boot, and you don't have that.
- Polyamide shell and cuff and eco-friendly Pebax tongue with Axial Alpine construction combine overlap and cabrio designs for easy on-off, precise volume adjustment, and superior performance
- 120 flex is stiff enough for ripping that line you've been eyeing for years
- 101mm width provides enough room for comfort on the long climb and high-speed descent
- Women-specific fit features narrower heel, lower calf, and higher instep
- Weighs a mere 6lb 4oz (per pair, size 25)
- Intuition Pro Flex RS Women's liner is custom-molded for precision fit, energy-efficient for high-performance, lightweight, and cozy-warm
- Heel retention strap prevents inefficient, unfortunate slippage
- Instep strap Predator RS increases tongue stiffness and closes easily even with gloved hands
- 50mm Velcro Strap RS provides burly closure and cuff support
- Zeus and aluminum Mirage buckles are strong and lightweight and easy to adjust with gloved hands
- Walk-ski mode is a cinch to switch and provides ample room to walk and secure lockdown downhill

- Vibram Cayman sole has soft toe for snug fit into binding, lugged profile to reduce snow build-up, and rubber heel for grip on treacherous terrain
- Compatible with AT and TLT bindings

Anyone done a bit of walking in these boots...
Anyone done a bit of walking in these boots as well? I need something that skis well, but can handle boot packing and hike-out descents. Thoughts?
This is a pretty good walking/skinning boot. if you pop open all the buckles when you are in walk mode (at least the top two buckles) and loosed the power strap they should walk very well. this is an awesome boot if you need something that can rip in-bounds and then hike out comfortably.
if you need any further help with this or any other AT boot feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to help you find the right boot
Alpine Touring boot of choice 4 me
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've skied extensively in this boot on several continents in mild and harsh conditions and it's been a solid performer. It is incredibly lightweight and the range of motion for skinning is incredible. For my standard winter tours in Colorado and Canada I use a 23.5, which is true to my street shoe size. For colder climates I upsize to a 24 Intuition liner for thicker socks and the performance is not compromised. These boots turn into mean machines on the downhill with stiffness that I've only found in much beefier, heavier ski boots. Getting in and out of them is a bit of a task that becomes easier with use, but the slick tongue opening keeps the profile small and locks my feet into position snuggly, making it a snappy, reactive performer. Could not be happier with this boot and hope it doesn't leave the SCARPA line anytime soon.

Do these come with a switch out sole that has a release plate on it for Fritchi style or non-tech AT style bindings- or is this something that has to be purchased separately?
These do not have a swappable sole, but rather one fixed and permanent sole. These boots will work with most Alpine touring bindings including tech style and Fritichi bindings.
How does scarpa break their sizes for this...
How does scarpa break their sizes for this boot these days... for example- is a 24 shell the same as a 24.5 shell? Is at 24 shell the same as a 25 shell?
Scarpa Boots break on the half size so that a 23.5 boot will have the same shell size as a 24 and a 24.5 boot will be the same shell size as a 25.
Will these work with a marker griffon...
Will these work with a marker griffon binding?
Negative. If you want to use these in an Alpine binding you can take a look at the Marker Lord.
Ripping Touting Boot for the Ladies
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I gave these as a gift to my wife and she loves them. The Intuition liner is stout yet comfy. If you're a hard charging lady who likes to ski aggressively in the backcountry(and your foot fits Scarpa boots), I highly recommend these. Make sure to get the liners molded /fitted by your local boot fitter prior to use. having a custom foot-bed will help these boots perform to the best of their ability.
Scarpa Gea RS Alpine Touring Boot
Great right out of the box
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are my first touring boots and I have been very pleased with them. They are light and extremely comfortable. I have had issues with alpine boots fitting properly and have to get custom footbeds/liners, but the Intuition liners on these boots are amazing and I didn't have to spend any extra money customizing the boots. These are great for touring and are sturdy enough to ski inbounds on days when you want to hit the sidecountry. Overall, I've been very happy with the purchase.
Holy happy place!

Having evolved through the Spirit 3, Diva, original Gea, and Shaka to the Gea RS, I can honestly say that Scarpa hit the mark on this one! Light like the original Gea with the amazing walk mode, the new RS is stiffer and skis like a dream. I am currently in Japan and have a Duke/Lange alpine setup as well as a dynafit/Gea RS setup and find I have so much control/power in the Gea RS that its all I am skiing, even on inbounds storm days. I really can:t say enough about how impressed I am with these boots!
Like skiing naked
With these boots, I feel like there is nothing between my feet and my skis. I'll admit, I was skeptical of these at first. I ski Volkl Auras with a Marker tour binding and generally need a heavy, burly boot to drive my skis. These boots are actually amazing. They are crazy light weight, but fairly stiff and feature a 101mm last, so the fit is pretty snug for an AT boot. I found that all my power transferred right to my skis. These boots are ridiculously responsive and my skis want to go crazy fast without the extra weight of a heavy boot.
