Terrorize the trail.
The Scott Men's MTB Prowl-R RS Shoe is built for the demanding trail rider pedaling across technical singletrack strewn with root lattices and chunky rock gardens. The Boa IP1 closure works in tandem with Scott's Wrap-fit upper, which provides a micro-adjustable fit that conforms to your foot like a glove. The Boa dial tightens with a quick turn for hassle-free adjustments, releasing with a single push when it's time to kick off your shoes after riding.
Differentiating it from others on the market, the ErgoLogic removable footbed provides customizable support and premium shock absorption. Adjustable arch support conforms to your individual arch geometry for a truly customized fit, regardless if you have a low, medium, or high-volume foot. Poron foam dissipates vibration and jarring impacts from fatiguing your feet across technical trails. The footbed also features a metatarsal button, which reduces forefoot numbness, especially when you're cranking the shoe's Boa dial as tight as possible.
Transferring pedaling motion into forward acceleration, the fiberglass-reinforced, nylon co-injected sole provides an efficient platform when you're cranking up steep alpine trails and maintaining speed across undulating terrain. Scott rates it as a 7 of 10 on for stiffness, meaning it's highly efficient, yet not overly stiff like race-specific carbon soles.

- Q & A
Great shoe while they lasted.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Love the boa, coming from a ratchet system. Scott's fit me well. I wear a snug 9 in Nike, and the 42 prowl fits me perfectly. These are not stiff shoes! I bought them for a Moab trip, and they seem like they would have more grip and flex. Seem suitable for bike/hike. I'd rate them at a 6 in stiffness. All around I love them here on east coast trails.
update... They were great while they lasted. Less than 4 months old and the tread/cleats are separating from the sole. Too bad as I really liked this shoe.
Props to Backcountry and there awesome team for processing a warranty claim in house for me. I sent them pictures of the issue and they immediately sent me a shipping label to return them. Thanks for sticking by your products, and taking care of your customers!
