+Spectre, 94 kb Combining the power of a downhill ski boot with the mobility and climb-ability of a modern alpine mountaineering boot.

La Sportiva kept working, kept innovating, and kept asking how they could make a 4 buckle ski boot work for ski mountaineers the world over that are pushing the limits of downhill performance.  Born from Stratos technology, the Spectre is the no compromise result combining four-buckle downhill performance with two-buckle touring comfort and ease on the up. The shell is made of lightweight Grilamid® while the Carbon reinforced Vertebra Technology™ drives the powerful 120 flex downhill performance. A large 60° range of motion and EZ Flex tongue make for an incredible walking experience and make the boot great for technical climbing while the exclusive, low-profile Pegasus buckle system allows macro and micro adjustability for a precise fit.

The Spectre is the best of La Sportiva innovation applied to a four buckle touring boot.

 

Sparkle - The Lightest Womens 4 Buckle Ski boot On The Market

+Sparkle, 115 kb Four-buckle power for women driving modern fat skis and looking to take control.

The same features which make the Spectre a great boot but with a slightly different liner tailored for a female fit. Grilamid® shell, carbon reinforced Vertebra Technology™, Pegasus buckle system and a wide range of motion in walk mode.

Sparkle is the best of La Sportiva innovation applied to a womens four buckle touring boot.

 

Spitfire - Light & Stiff 2 Buckle Boot

+La Sportiva Spitfire, 229 kb The Spitfire represents the perfect crossover between the high-speed world of rando-racing and the lightweight requirements of freeride touring where speed is safety. Designed for dedicated and demanding ski mountaineers, this model uses the finest technology currently available to create a lightweight and fast adjusting high-performance boot.

The Grilamid® shell and Carbon Reinforced Polymer CRP Cuff™ keep weight to a minimum. La Sportiva's patent pending Fast Lock System™ consists of unique Vertebra Technology™, a hardwearing ergonomic power structure that works like a backbone alongside the innovative Cam Closure System™, which allows for the transition from ski to walk mode in just one super-fast motion. Freedom of movement reaches exceptional levels of 68 degrees thanks to the EZ Flex™ system incorporated into the Pebax® tongue while the shell's ergonomic profile facilitates the walk mode and enhances the general level of comfort allowing power to be conveyed directly to the skis.  The removable WarmSole™ insole creates an insulating barrier against cold and make this one of the warmest boots in the two-buckle category.
