Raceborg Alpine Touring Boot

The Raceborg Boot is La Sportiva's ultimate ski racing boot built ultralight and surprisingly stiff. It gains a low weight-to-high stiffness ratio with a complete carbon cuff attached to La Sportiva's burly CavoBike Lever Pro walk mode. In walk mode, the Raceborg boasts an incredible 75° range of motion for a speed-oriented performance. Locked in, the Raceborg is surprisingly stiff to keep you moving on the downhill.

La Sportiva shaped the Grilamid's shell with a wider 100mm last for an extremely comfortable fit so your toes can splay, or you need to layer on a cold day. Designed specifically for the Raceborg, the "bikini" liner has a unique two-piece construction to stay as slim as possible for race day. The Race Grip sole is outfitted with tech inserts for ultralight bindings.

A Real Race Boot

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 26.5

This is a terrific boot, light as a feather. What the designers went through to lower the weight on this boot was a lot of genius, very innovative and creative solutions. Fit is very good and comfortable, all in all, a terrific boot. However, this is not mis-named, it is a race boot. It is designed to race in, not for everyday training use. I don't race anymore, so I wanted an everyday boot that was light, but some of the compromises made on this boot have been done with light weight in mind, not durability. Also, I wanted a boot to use for long treks, days from the trailhead. This boot is not that boot. There are things that could, with a lot of use, fail, and, on a long trip, that would be a real headache. None of this is meant as a criticism, the title says "race boot" and that's what they are. Truth in advertising. I don't have any complaints about the boots themselves, they are purpose built and I believe they will get the job done!

La Sportiva Raceborg selling points

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

La Sportiva Raceborg is the ultimate weapon for the high demanding skimountaineers thanks to the race-ready technologies.

Broken out of the box

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I opened to the box to find to find that the heel inserts in both boots were rattling around inside the boot. It appears they werent glued well. I contacted customer service and they told to go buy some glue and fix them. So , i went and spent $15, and repaired my brand new never used $1800 boots. There was never an offer by La Sportiva to fix the boot or send me glue. Im not sure why I had to spend more money and than fix my own boot???
After 3 days use one of the zippers on the boot gaiter blew out. The fabric connecting the gaiter to the plastic of the boot is already delamming on both boots.
I have contacted customer service for the second time on these boots and sent them back to La Sportiva. My hopes arent very high as I have had bad luck the previous 4 issues that I have had with their boots.
I love my Nepal Evos but doubt I will ever buy another boot from them because of the poor service
