Scarpa Freedom RS Ski Boots - Men's
Rip down slopes in boots that give you ultimate control. The design of the Freedom RS boots is based on Scarpa's popular Freedom SL boots, but the RS have stiffer cuffs for less lateral flex and more control. Power transmission comes courtesy of a carbon core plate in the bottom of the boots, lightweight shell, and overlap construction for a great foot wrap. Adjustable spoilers allow you to customize your fit, and rubber weather seals at the toes keep you protected from snow even when your buckles are loosened for long boot packs and up-tracks.

- Pebax Rnew and carbon lower shell.
- Carbon core plate increases power transmission from edge to edge, while keeping it light and low-profile.
- Ride Power Block XT ski/hike mechanism provides downhill power and a frictionless uphill walk mode.
- Canting adjustment of +/- 2mm.
- Adjustable spoilers let you to dial in the fit, power-transmission and volume of the cuffs.
- Thermomouldable liners in the lower boot. Race-inspired reinforced uppers.
- 4 buckles with hook clasps let you fully open buckles when skinning.

Forward lean affects a skiers balance. Some boots have a set forward lean angle; some are adjustable. Less lean places your knees in a more upright (almost standing) position, whereas more lean positions your knees forward over the ball of your feet.
