    • Polyamide shells and Pebax® tongues keep the boots light yet stiff for great responsiveness on fast descents
    • Shell design combines the best of both the overlap and cabrio constructions to allow easy entry/exit, excellent volume control and strong support for downhill performance
    • Touring-style Intuition Pro Flex RS liners use 100% Ultralon® foam for a custom fit; liners offer good range of motion yet provide support with stiff tongues
    • Tongue-style liners (as opposed to a wrap-style liners) provide easy entry and comfortable flex through the shins when touring
    • See an REI ski shop professional to have the liners custom molded to your feet to maximize comfort and performance
    • Boots are compatible with all randonee bindings; tech fittings at the toes accept Dynafit-style bindings
    • Tech fittings have grooves that make getting into Dynafit-style bindings easy; fitting indicators can be seen from above to help you line the boot toes up with the bindings
    • 3 magnesium buckles and a Predator RS instep strap on each boot lock your feet in place; instep straps are easy to engage with gloves on
    • Wide rip-and-stick power straps wrap securely around the outside of the cuffs, distributing pressure and bringing the cuffs as close as possible your lower legs
    • Rear ski/walk mechanisms free the cuffs for walking comfort; flip the switches to ski mode and you can lock the cuffs at 16° or 20° of forward lean
    • Gea RS boots have a forefoot width of 101mm; women-specific fit includes narrower heels, lower cuffs at the calves and higher insteps than comparable men's boots
    • Scarpa Gea RS randonee boots feature lugged Vibram soles for good grip while hiking on rock and snow

    by fromAwesome! This is my first AT boot purchase and I am very pleased. Phenomenal!!! I have been wearing them for 5 days. At first the liner seemed stiff around the tongue and difficult to get the adjustment/fit just right. Each day they seem more and more comfortable and less time needed for adjustment. My previous boots weigh 11 pounds per pair (ugh), these weigh just under 7. I utilize them primarily for skiing and hiking short distances to the ridge. I do not partake in any touring however, I really wanted the vibram sole, light weight and the walk/ski mode. To get the ski mode (tilt forward) you must push your shin forward while putting boot in ski mode. At first, I was unaware of this so I was skiing too upright which caused me to lean back and get out of control. It was dreadful..Hiking and walking in these boots is effortless. I am a fairly aggressive skier so they seem to have great support. Just love them...The flap is a bit of a nuisance however, I figured out a way to leave it in place when entering and exiting the boot. To remove, place in walk mode, while pulling foot out, push on the back/top of shell behind the calf, not the liner. Strange but true. On, put in walk mode and simply put it on!! Great discovery. So far, they are great!!!

    by fromHoly happy place! Most use is long backcountry tours in Alaska, but I am so impressed by this boot that I will use it for more sidecountry and even resort than I have previous AT boots. 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!
