Scarpa Maestrale Tactical Alpine Touring Boot
When you're going for the win, go in one of the lightest four-buckle AT boots on the planet, the Scarpa Maestrale Tactical Alpine Touring Boot. This featherweight but burly boot gives you speedy efficiency for tireless ascents and four Magnesium Mirage buckles for clamped-down performance. But the 100-flex Pebax Rnew shell not only flies like a demon on the downhill, its hybrid and exclusive Axial Alpine closure blends overlap and cabrio construction for bomber strength and ultra smooth flex and performance. The asymmetric tongue delivers precise power transmission, while a heel-retention strap gives you a secure hold. The Intuition Pro Flex G liner is thermomoldable for customizable comfort and efficient warmth. You can heat up this warm, cozy, flatlock-stitched Ultralon liner at home (following directions only) or take it to your trusty local shop for instant gratification and a fit that won't pack out.
Because Scarpa knows we need to be nice to the planet to keep that snow we love coming down, it made the Maestrale with Pebax Rnew, a plant-based plastic that's made from castor beans instead of petroleum products. It takes 30% less energy to make the plastic and creates about 30% fewer emissions in the process. But don't worry, you're not sacrificing an iota of performance for this eco-friendliness; in fact, Pebax Rnew retains its stiffness over a slightly wider temperature range than normal Pebax or polyurethane.
A wide range of motion in walk mode makes the hike more comfortable and efficient, without having to flex the ankle up the hill. When you make your quick summit, there's the nice and easy Quick-step fittings and FIS to make getting into your skis a breeze, even in deep snow. The grippy Vibram Cayman sole uses smooth, thin, and lugged rubber strategically for secure footing on treacherous terrain. Now crank down on those buckles and power strap, and taste sweet success.

Is this one the same as the orange Maestrale but in black ? I mean same construction, materials, flex etc ?

Yep, it is the exact same boot, just with a different color scheme. These were a custom run done by Scarpa for tactical use where you don't want bright orange boots or shiny buckles.
