Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot

The Scarpa Women's Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot is Queen of the Mountain in the Scarpa freeride line. It's the burliest, with a 120 flex index, but almost a pound lighter than the standard Freedom. The SL also uses a lighter Intuition liner and more aggressive sole. Compared to Scarpa's touring boots, the Freedom SL is more versatile (added alpine capability) and is stiffer and more powerful, but it does weigh more than the Maestrale or F1. It has a Ride Power Block that delivers frictionless motion for efficient climbing and locks in back support for power transmission on the downhill. For the woman who needs a boot that can charge off the lift in alpine bindings or slip efficiently into the backcountry with tech (TLT) bindings, the Freedom SL has few equals.

Rather than rebadge the men's version with a little pink and a soft flex, Scarpa's engineers made the last a little smaller and the cuff a little lower to match the shape and size of a woman's foot and calf. The Pebax Rnew shell overlaps for a gap-less fit. Its Carbon Core technology wraps it around a bomber carbon frame for lightweight and allover stiffness for precision control. The Intuition FR Speed liner boot is molded with the shell for a seamless fit and powerful performance, key in making the distinction between a competent alpine/AT boot and one that kills it. The 101mm anatomic last features Axial Power Control for lateral stiffness and sensitivity.

The interchangeable Vibram sole gives you lugged tenacity when hiking over scree or down-climbing into a rocky chute—the boot comes with the Rockered Mountain Plus sole for AT and tech bindings, but the Mountain Piste sole is available separately for those who rip on alpine bindings, too. You'll feel the advantage in an instant and respond with a peaceful mind. After all, you don't want to charge down a finger chute with already-frayed nerves.

  • A Goldilocks-style balance between weight and performance
  • Stiff 120 flex provides power for gals who charge hard
  • 101mm last accommodates medium to medium-wide feet
  • Generous walk mode with a 27-degree cuff rotation
  • Thermo-moldable Intuition liner for ultimate comfort
  • Four lightweight alloy buckles with a power strap
  • Compatible with tech and alpine touring bindings

Good all around boot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this boot to use on-piste and -off as I’ve recently gotten into touring. Upon first trying it on it was tight and slightly narrow but after getting the liners fitted and boots punched I find these to be very comfortable! So far I’ve gone on a few tours and have used them two days inbounds and am loving them! I wouldn’t suggest these boots to anyone with larger than average calves.

Ouch.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These hurt to put on, hurt to wear, and hurt just... in general. I'm not a baby when it comes to ski boot pain -- in fact, my boots are a 94 last because I like nothing more than a tight, tight fit, but these were just something else all together. It's weird, too, because I have friends who love these boots. So obviously they're just not for me. I would've had to size up an entire size, maybe 1.5, for even moderate comfort out of the box. Serious molding would've still been necessary, I'm sure.

Hi Julia, touring boots never feel good out of the box, like resort boots sometimes do. Heat molding touring boots by a professional is a must. Once they are molded, they are literally a different boot. It's nothing short of amazing!

Initial Fit Impressions

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I tried these on along with the Scarpa F1, Scarpa Gea RS, and the Technica Zero G Guide Pro.

I am trying to fit a med-wide foot, low arch, and HUGE calves, and looking for a boot that can handle my weight, and skier type, plus the weight of my camera gear/heavy pack driving the boot.

These were definitely high volume in the foot, maybe a bit too high volume for me, especially when the liners had not been molded yet. This would certainly be great if you're looking for extra high volume boot option.

After getting them buckled, there was a serious lack of comfort. I am sure molding the liners would be 200% crucial for this boot. I find most liners will give you a decent baseline for comfort, especially if you leave them buckle for a few minutes, but not these. There seemed to be something extra weird about the tongue and I just couldn't get past it. In comparison, the Scarpa F1 and the Technica Zero G Guide Pro fit wonderfully for me straight out of the box.

Great Touring Boot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My girlfriend was very impressed with the comfort and lightness of this boot right off the bat! They are a great mix of stiffness and lightweight. They actually do very well walking also. I see this being a boot she will use for many seasons to come. They look pretty good also!!
