You go up to go down, after all.

Back in the days when phone had cords and computers made death noises when they connected to the internet, you couldn't have a backcountry ski boot that charged like a full-on alpine boot. Times change, though, and now that you're connected everywhere you go, you might as well also enjoy the all-in-one freeride and touring performance of the Scarpa Gea RS Women's Alpine Touring Boot. With an rugged 120 flex, stiff polyamide shell, burly power strap, and Evo V-Frame cuff, the RS charges steep lines, big faces, and deep pow as hard as you want to, but still crushes the skin track with a 37° range of cuff motion that'd you'd expect to find in a softer boot. It also weighs barely three pounds, so your hip flexors won't be screaming in pain if you have to skin more than a few miles to get to your line. 

Scarpa hooked the Gea up with it's brand-spanking-new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode, which locks the shell securely to the cuff with two metal pins for bombproof downhill performance and makes it easier to switch between ski and walk modes. It also gave it a stiff Pebax Axial Alpine tongue, which hinges at the toe and actually pivots sideways away from the shell, letting you get your boot on and off easily as well as providing a smooth, progressive flex that eliminates dead spots and stiff zones. It also allows the oversized Zeus buckles and instep-locking Predator HRS strap to securely wrap around your foot, eliminating sloppy fits and uncomfortable pressure points. The Gea comes with a stiff heat-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS Women's liner so you can dial in the perfect fit, a Fitting Indicator System to help you align your Dynafit Quick Step-In tech inserts with your binding, and is finished off with a grippy Vibram Cayman rubber sole for confident footing on slick terrain, ice, and rocks.

Unanswered Question

How true to size are they? I see Jenn, below, wears a 8.5 and she choose a 24.5, 'with a little toe room'... which by your size chart is a size 7.5. My wife is a 6.5 and I'm wondering if they run a little large...??

Unanswered Question

What is the main difference between this boot and the Scarpa Freedom SL? I'm an advanced downhill skier who is just breaking into the touring world and really trying to find a boot that I can charge in at the resorts and do a little backcountry skinning as well.

The goods and bads

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave these to a friend, this is what she had to say:

This is a one time use review. I wear a 8.5 size shoe and the 24.5 fit well with a little toe room.

Positives: The walk mode was super easy to use and I had great range of motion while walking. These boots are incredibly light and just walking around I felt like I had nothing on my feet. The axial tongue made it so easy to get in and out of the boot. Love this feature.

Negatives: The sides where my foot is the widest, right below on the sides of my big and pinky toes, might have to be punched out, as it was a tight fit there. My feet tend to run wide in regular shoes. Also, I can't seem to find a women's touring boot that is really stiff. This is a 120 flex, but some how it doesn't feel like it. I could still flex it pretty well, but then again, it is a touring boot. Maybe it was user error.

Overall, great boot. Really light, get's the job done.

Will these work with Solomon guardians?

This year's model Guardian, yes! Last year's Guardian, technically no! Last year's was only technically compatible with alpine or Salomon WTR soles. This year's is compatible with alpine, WTR and AT lugged soles!

A great Boot

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love the mobility of the boot when i walk up hill and the ski mode is perfect for my size!

Is it true that it is OK to use the liner as a camp boot on snow? I saw a video that stated so but that is the only place I have seen this mentioned.

You can use the liner as a camp boot, I tend not to as it sucks when the liner gets wet. If its just for a quick walk around then its fine but if you plan to keep your liner on the snow for a while it could become more of a problem and tougher to dry.

If you have any left over skin cut outs from your climbing skins I have used them on the bottom of the liner to provide some water protection and traction.

will these work with marker dukes?

Best Answer

Yeah! The Gea is compatible with all types of AT bindings.
