WINNER - Win a Pair of Scarpa Mont Blanc or Phantom Tech Competition

© Scarpa

Scarpa have released two major updates to their 2019 winter range. Phantom Tech, which is their flagship technical climbing/mountaineering boot has got lighter and warmer. The Mt Blanc Pro is more of a workhorse, geared towards general purpose mountaineering, but with enough tech to get your up those crux ice/mixed pitches. In order for you to get the pair that work for you Scarpa are giving you a chance to win a pair of your choosing.

Phantom Tech - RRP £500

The Phantom Tech is a super light, technically precise, gaitered boot for cold weather mountaineering and ice climbing.

The new waterproof gaiter design uses PU Tek technology to create a lightweight but extremely durable outer with a high degree of dexterity and feel, while also helping to reduce the overall weight by 110g, making the Phantom Tech the lightest boot in its class.

Phantom Tech Suitability

The inner shell features a Primaloft 100 insulation layer and incorporates Primaloft Silver yarns, increasing the warmth and breathability. The revised fast lock system allows an easy to adjust, secure hold over the foot.

The new sole unit on the Phantom uses AC Tech roll (derived from the Ribelle family) to give increased cushioning and a more precise feel underfoot, with a new TPU crampon insert and carbon tech 3 SL midsole for a perfect synergy with the latest C3 automatic crampons.

Mt Blanc Pro - RRP £450

The Mt Blanc Pro is a warm and durable boot designed for technical mountaineering and winter climbing.

The new Mt Blanc Pro is built around the latest Essential AC sole platform which is lightweight, and cushioned but also extremely burly and durable. The TPU insert at the toe gives a symbiotic connection to the latest automatic crampons.

The upper is a hardy 3mm perwanger leather backed up with a GORE-TEX® (Insulated Comfort Footwear) for cold weather use. The new ankle cuff design has an Exo-Ys TPU structure injected directly into the material, creating a really lightweight but supportive cradle around the ankle. The revised softshell gaiter is even easier to get into helping protect against snow and spindrift. The combination of PU Tek and rubber rand give the optimum blend of weight saving and reinforced protection, making the Mt Blanc Pro one of the lightest boots in its class.

This competition has now closed.
