Ribelle Lite HD – Men’s Mountain Boot The Ribelle Lite is a ground breaking mountain boot, designed for fast moving mountain walking and Via Ferrata. Compatible with C2 crampons with a flex bar. The Ribelle family are a new generation of boots designed to allow people to move faster than conventional mountain boots. Core to this is the new ARG last shape, which has low volume technical precision, but with a noticeable toe spring, giving a much more natural and fluid gait. This is married to the new Pentax Precision Roll sole which has a technical Vibram outsole with bi-density PU cushioning, giving a much more natural feel and walking motion. The upper of the Ribelle Lite is a lightweight microtech fabric with a direct lamination H-dry membrane: fully waterproof and highly breathable, without absorbing water. The sock fit tongue works with the lightweight lacing system to give a snug, instant fit. The upper (and the midsole) are wrapped in a new PU Tech layer that offers excellent abrasion resistance without adding anywhere near the weight of a conventional rubber rand. Features: Lining – H-Dry® Lamination + 37.5 by Cocona Mid Sole – Activ Plus (polypropylene + fibre glass 4 mm) Sole – Pentax Precision III Upper – Tech Fabric + Microtech Weight (per pair 42) – 1300g / 46oz Suitability: Alpine Summer: 5/5 Mountain Walk: 5/5 Winter Mountain Walk: 5/5 Hill Walk: 4/5 Winter Mountaineering: 4/5 Via Ferrata: 4/5 Technical Features: HDry® Membrane – Thanks to the HDry® quality standard, the shoes built with this system possess the highest level of waterproofness, breathability and insulation. The waterproof and breathable membrane is firmly laminated to the upper inner side and there are no seams and no gaps where water can penetrate: rain and cold are blocked on the shoe’s outer surface and a large volume of dry air keeps your feet warm and comfortable. The ultra-thin waterproof membrane and the unique lamination method provides a precise fit and keep your shoes dry and light all day. Vibram® Outsole – Vibram® shoe soles are widely used in the shoe industry because of their reputation for quality, durability, comfort and traction. Today, Vibram soles are offered on rugged footwear all over the world, and many of those footwear designs not having actual Vibram-brand lug soles are still wearing a Vibram design. Vibram® soles were invented in 1935 by Vitale Bramani after six of his friends tragically passed away on a hiking expedition in the Italian Alps. The combination of better insulation and better traction led to safer hiking expeditions and fewer cases of frostbite, hypothermia and exposure. Vitale Bramani founded the Vibram® sole company, the name a combination of his first and last names (Vi-Bram). Despite being more than 80 years old, the original Carrarmato lugged tread pattern is still one of the best tread patterns for hiking and use in slippery conditions.

Scarpa® Resoling Possible – Scarpa shoes and boots are built to the highest standard and should serve you for many years of use.

Resoling not only extends the lifespan of your Scarpa footwear, it also returns it to it’s very best level of performance.
