SuperGuide Carbon Alpine Touring Boot
Lightweight on the skintrack and stable on the descent, the Scott SuperGuide Carbon Alpine Touring Boot is a choice morsel for aggressive skiers that don't want to compromise downhill precision in favor of weight. The secret to its success lies within the Powerlite Carbon construction, which uses carbon inlays that blend stiff response with a low weight, and also ensures less shell deformation and lateral flex. While the SuperGuide might not reign as the lightest touring boot in Scott's arsenal, it does make up for that in terms of aggression. At 125 it boasts the stiffest flex in the collection, making it responsive for more advanced skiers. And the additional buckles that aren't weighing down, say, the Scott Orbit, are adding power and strength to the SuperGuide.
The SuperGuide Carbon Alpine Touring Boot is a beast on the descent, but Scott put plenty of thought into the uphill trek as well. The Rear Hook Walk System is dependable and simple to use, providing 60 degrees of friction-free motion when you're on the skin track or boot pack, and full Vibram soles offer up a steady grip if you're maneuvering tricky terrain with your skies on your pack. The thermo-moldable liner can be heat molded by a boot fitter for a perfect fit, and the ventilated mesh construction is both breathable and warm. The PWR lite liners are tour-specific, featuring a lightweight design that has four-axis flex for increased mobility.

- Q & A
I want to love these boots. Possibly the best fit out of the box of any boot I have ever owned. Enjoyed hiking in these, enjoyed wearing these. Power strap buckle is a little goofy to put on and take off and foot bed seems super cheap/replaced it with superfeet. Overall a good boot. This is not a stiff boot despite the claims and I didn't enjoy this boot paired with my stout Blizzard Zero G 108's. I am pretty light and it may be that I need a really stiff boot to help me flex stiff skis. Most backcountry specific skis are soft and would match up with this boot but if you are crossing over with stiffer resort skis and are looking at getting a crossover boot or really stiff backcountry boot these may not be the best match. I also skied these on som BD Amperages and they seemed to be a better combo. For reference I am 6' 150 lbs and also own the scarpa freedom rs boot which skis like a boss, is much stiffer, but is not nearly as comfortable on my foot as the Scott Superguide.

My friend has these and they are a lot more spacious in the inside. If you have a wide foot it is hard to find a better fitting light boot. Very comfortable.
Scott SuperGuide Carbon Alpine Touring Boot
Light and super comfortable boot. Easy to use walk mode. The carbon inlays stiffen the boot up nicely. Very responsive boot.
