Out with a purpose.
The S1 fleet is a new offering from Scott's Freeride Ski Touring line, designed for ripping big lines in the alpine. Constructed with a Grilamid and carbon shell, the S1 Carbon Boot offers strength and power in a relatively lightweight package. The 130 flex suits aggressive skiers looking to charge hard, with a 101mm last that fits medium to wide feet.
The ski/walk mechanism on these kicks is pretty unique, situated in the front rather than a lever on the cuff. This original, unique design aims to increase the stiffness in downhill mode while maintaining a solid 60-degree range of motion on the uphill. The fully replaceable soles increase longevity after a full season of tricky ascents through scree fields and rocky ridges, and the front entry system makes for easy on and off, even when you accidentally leave them in the frozen car all night.

- Q & A
It’s a good idea...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Boots are an excellent concept but it doesn’t seem like they were finished... lots of fiddling. Buckles don’t stay clipped in your mode then they flop around. Needs a top buckle instead of the power strap design, it simply won’t get tight which equates to a super soft boot. Nowhere near it’s supposed 130 flex. It does have a nice even flex- but just soft. Quite funky to step into pin toe piece as well- tight fit, hard to get out of as well. However the liner is well made and quite comfortable... and the tour mode has a good range of motion..
