© Scarpa, Oct 2006

The Freney XT GTX is a modern alpine boot made in lightweight and abrasion resistant K-TECH. It is intended for use on classic alpine routes and its absolute lightness will appeal to climbers tackling long and difficult alpine itineraries.

The Freney XT was designed for use by mountain guides and other climbers who wear their boots day in, day out, on the most varied terrain, while carrying heavy loads, using crampons and tackling rock climbs, and who want total comfort.

Freney XT has a rigid sole based on the Cumbre sole design, which features maximum adhesion and stability, and provides the foot with a maximum surface area for grip and braking. Internally, it is Gore-Tex Dura Therm Lined for outstanding warmth.

The boot also now features the GSB (Grivel Scarpa Binding) system for crampon attachment.

    The Freney XT GTX are a Light weight boot but a bit pricey for what they are, also watch out for the blisters caused on long routes down in the alps. Two of us had identicle boots and suffered the same, thought I had broken these in after loads of training but long downhill boulder fields in the Alps don't seem to suit these boots with my feet or the other guys. These will be going on Ebay

    At least in France the boots are actually cheap compared to other similar models. I've done 2500m descents with these boots quite many times in the Alps and no blisters at all.
