  • The reference in ski touring boots by Scarpa

The MAESTRALE and GEA (women's version) have always been the ideal boots for ski touring skiers of all levels, capable of offering an unforgettable sporting experience, both uphill and downhill. The pleasure of skiing, on any type of route, is ensured by the immediate comfort of the thermoformable liner and accentuated by the design that makes the shape more comfortable.
Technical and durable: they meet high ecological standards thanks to the choice of Pebax Rnew® material produced from renewable sources.
Performance and lightness: the carbon insert on the shell promotes high-level control and excellent dynamism, while making the MAESTRALE one of the lightest shoes on the market in its category.


- From beginner to professional

- Instant fit and comfort

- Unbeatable weight-performance ratio

  • What's new?

A new buckle system, the WAVE CLOSURE. It guarantees precise envelopment of the foot at four points between the malleolus and the forefoot, equalizing pressure on the foot. 3 adjustment points are available for this system: the 3-tooth rack on the lever (1), the micro-regulator on the toe (2) and a second position for the lever on the strap (3) for more effective tightening.

The boot is therefore more comfortable, more precise and offers a better fit for greater skiability and precision. The new design also makes it more suitable for wider skis.

It also features a new ski/walk system: made from aluminum with Friction Free technology for maximum freedom of movement when walking. Locking onto the shell is simple and effective, and the steel harpoon and design minimize the possibility of snow or ice build-up, ensuring easy closure even in extreme conditions.

New Vibram Cayman Pro sole with traction lug technology.

New aluminum buckles: Aluminum buckles guarantee lightness and strength. The design allows efficient use even when wearing gloves. Micrometric adjustment and steel rings ensure better closure pressure distribution and reduced weight.

Made from Pebax Rnew®, the shell is unique thanks to Carbon Core technology. This over-injected carbon insert guarantees immediate transmission of impulses to the ski, ensuring precision and control even in the most difficult skiing conditions.

  • Eco-responsible materials

This boot is built to last and to accompany you for many years in the mountains. It's made from Pebax Rnew®, a PVC-free material derived from renewable sources. The Ortholite insole is made from recycled materials. The shoe has also been designed so that all its components can be maintained by the user himself, using specific tools.
What is Pebax Rnex?

Pebax® first appeared on the market in the 1980s. With its outstanding technical characteristics, this material is now widely used by SCARPA in the manufacture of ski touring boots and trail-running shoes. It is a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that provides elasticity and resistance, developed by Arkema, a major global chemical player and specialist in high-performance materials.

In its constant quest for innovation, Arkema has more recently developed Pebax® Rnew®, the world's first biosourced TPE made from renewable raw materials. Derived from castor seeds, Pebax® Rnew® elastomers take up the exceptional properties of PEBAX®, notably lightness, resistance to flexion and elastic return, while adhering to an eco-design approach.
The shoe's construction is also PVC FREE certified.


Scarpa was a pioneer in 2007 when the company chose Pebax® Rnew® advanced biobased polymers for its footwear, thus maintaining a high level of performance and taking a step towards more sustainable sourcing of materials.

Today, the company continues on its path towards more sustainable, environmentally-friendly production: a commitment the brand has always pursued, even at a time when media and public awareness was lower than it is today.

In figures:

29% less energy from non-renewable sources than traditional plastics.
32% less CO2 emissions per 100m of Pebax Rnew, (compared to TPU production).

  • Model RS


SCARPA also offers a new RS model, Maestrale RS and GEA RS, more oriented towards backcountry skiing and for more advanced skiers, for greater overall skiability. With Carbon Core shell AND collar technology (unlike the classic Maestrale) for high torsional and longitudinal stiffness, guaranteeing precision and control. For unparalleled pleasure when you want to explore the wildest slopes.


What's more, the shell is made of organic Grilamid from renewable sources (the collar is still made of Pebax Rnew), a stiffer material that further enhances skiability, and is PVC-free. The boot is different from that of the Maestrale, offering greater precision.
