- Familiarity: I've used it several times
THIS is the THE BOOT. It was disconcerting, and a little alarming at first, trying to flex this beast to drop the knee, but I just made alpine turns on them for a couple days to soften them up (or at least get used to them). I've never had this level of control or power from a boot before, and they are super comfortable too. The various layers of liner, plastic shell, and buckles are pretty awkward to get lined up right, but I'll take a few seconds of frustration in the parking lot for control like this. I can't recommend this boot highly enough for telemarkers looking for more power transfer, but it's not for the lightweight, novice, or timid. Put these suckers on and go charge!
Looking to switch to NTN gear this year...
Looking to switch to NTN gear this year and would like some advice on boot selection. I'm looking at the Scarpa TX Pro and Comp, any recommendations? Have been tele skiing for 11 yrs and love the bumps, glades and quick turns...mostly in the East with one trip out west every year.
What are you skiing in now? Are you pretty happy with your current boot's stiffness? If you want the stiffest available go with the Comp, but most people find the Pro stiff enough.
With the exception of two clips all of the skiing in this video was with the TX-Comp.
Best boot ever? Almost!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After years in the T-race I jumped into NTN and the TX-Comp. Haven't looked back - everything about NTN is better than 75mm.
Overall the setup is lighter than my 75mm gear, the boot is lighter, much more climb-able without the duckbill, and has all the power that the T-Race has.
Only bummer - no tech inserts. If they had tech inserts they'd be the only boot I'd ever need. Now I switch between the TX-pro for my tech needs and the TX-comp for my NTN skiing.
These boots will earn your respect.

This is the most comfortable ski boot I've ever ridden. I have put down over 115 days on these skiing five to seven full days a week during winter and spring. They provide a consistent and even flex, the appropriate amount of stiffness and a supportive liner. I like the fact that there are no tech fittings on these boots! My job requires me to walk and hike a ton in these boots, and they have stood up against that wear and tear well! The only issue I've had with these boots is losing one of the lowest buckles on a powder day. Bummer! On the other hand, I was able to test Scarpa's customer service. I shot them an email, received a response within two hours and had a replacement buckle the following week with no charge! All of the emailing took place on the chair rides up between runs within the same day! The loss of the buckle affected the performance of the boot very little and I was still able to work and free ski using these boots without it. These are my all time favorite tele boots! You will not regret this purchase.
Ski to climb ability
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I got these for my pops as a christmas gift.
Pros: He likes the placement of the ankle buckle as he has high arches. He is a mountain rescue OG and frequently has to skin to location and put on crampons for rescue. With these the transition is seamless and these boots are better for ice climbing than what he had previously.
Cons: Would have been 5 stars if they had tech fittings.
I'd buy them if only they had Tech fittings...
I'd buy them if only they had Tech fittings (Dynafit) and Booster strap.
Too bad you missed this guy then...

Hopefully they get more!
I agree... Why does the ultimate NTN boot not have tech fittings?? I was just about to buy it and am glad I didn't. I'll have to deal with the softer TX pro and F1 for now.
Will this boot work in a Marker Duke...
Will this boot work in a Marker Duke binding?
No, the TX Comp will not work in any fixed heel binding. The flex at the bellows will screw up any sort of predictable release and might possibly cause pre-release.
Do you guys sell the retrofit tour lever...
Do you guys sell the retrofit tour lever for previous season's TX Comps?
If not, does anyone know who is selling them?
I believe the only place to get them is direct from Scarpa. I believe you are looking for the Powerblock Tour mechanism which will run you around $60 plus shipping. You can go to their website and find them under Ski>Accessories, or you could check a local Scarpa dealer to see if they could help you out.
Got em from Scarpa as you suggested. Installed and waiting for decent touring conditions to set in!
Does anyone know if the Scarpa TX Comp or...
Does anyone know if the Scarpa TX Comp or Pro is the same shell as T1 (duckbill) I'm changing over to the NTN and have ridden the T1's for years...fit is great and was hoping it was the same in NTN boots. Thanks
It's not the same. The TX Comp/Pro fits a bit wider than the T1. That said I know a number of people who are able to get a good fit in both boots. It all depends on your feet.

Best NTN Boot out there
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Hands down the best NTN boot there is. Considering all factors (bellows flex, lateral/torsional rigidity, bellows stiffness, quality product) this boot is the best offering for NTN.
And this is coming after I owned and had considerable use on Crispi Shivers, Garmont "False" Prophets, and finally Tx-Comps. I actually wish the bellows were a tad stiffer since there is no black springs option for NTN anymore.
The ski/walk mode is an added bonus as the older versions sucked when you would have one of the mini downhills while skinning and the boot stayed in the forward position. You can't go wrong with the tongue style liner as well. Absolutely loved it since the beginning; it really allows for you to get a more intimate fit than the wrap style. The new style instep buckle setup is pretty nice too. The only thing I would really want to see in this boot is tech fittings. Once that happens I'll be one happy NTN skier.
The only bad thing I can say of this set up is Scarpa dropping the booster strap that came standard with it as it really complemented the rest of the boot well. Picking one up would be worth the extra $30.
Seriously get this boot over any other boot available, it is the best overall option for those that want to charge and get everything out of their boot.
