Scarpa F1 Race Alpine Touring Boot - 2008 BCS
When lightweight and uphill efficiency are essential, the Scarpa F1 Race Alpine Touring Boot reigns supreme. The Scarpa F1 Race holds the title of lightest and most winning competition randonee boot in the world. This boot features ergonomic bellows that allow for a natural metatarsal flex when striding and climbing, reducing fatigue and increasing speed. Scarpa incorporated the ski/walk mechanism with the boot\222s upper buckle, letting you transition quickly from lockdown ski mode to free flexing, loose cuff walk mode. Four degrees of adjustable forward lean let you customize your stance according to your style and the terrain you\222re skiing. The Vibram Skeleton sole provides grippy traction for steep bootpacks and rock scrambles.

I tried every dynafit boot at mec and they were too narrow for me.I wear a 27.5 boot and was told the next size up wouldn't make any difference.I was wondering if a boot specialist could make them work or should I opt for another brand?

Fred I feel the F1 would be your best option as far as width. Course I am the rep but have tried them all on as well an I could honestly say this would be the widest of the bunch. The liners are heat moldable so you could get some width by molding these with a large sock then using a thinner sock to ski in. These are made to have a performance fit so a larger size may help but would be a bit loopy for a race boot.

Light and fast! But I am slow!
February 20, 2009
I have had these boots for a few weeks now! They are light and fast, My feet still seem to have to build up strength to accommodate the flex in the toes.My slow power style of touring can not keep the rpm's up to match the lightness of the boot!
I admit I will mostly use them for rando racing or summer ski mountaineering, because the downhill performance is compromised!

Backcountry.com rules!!! I can't believe they're selling these! I got mine last year in Italy while racing at the Euro Champs. I bought them at the gear fair, but a Scarpa tech was right there and immediately they went to work and replaced the top strap with a kevlar rope system attached to the lever in the back. It would've taken me hours to do what they did in 10 minutes. It reduces the weight even more. Additionally, I found that the fabric tongue did not give enough cushioning from the buckle strap, so this summer I made up a carbon fiber tongue. With padding it only added 10g per boot. Finally, I'll add that the fwd. lean is adjustable. It took me awhile to figure this out. the 2 screws on the back lever give you 3 positions of fwd. lean.
