It's hard to believe but the best-selling Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring ski boots are completely changed...and for the better. The new Maestrale RS departs from its predecessor in many ways; most noticably, instead of four buckles the new model has just three buckles and a power strap. It adds an equalized cable system over the forefoot that helps the single buckle there support a large area where the lowest buckle is removed. The lock mechanism used to switch from climbing to skiing, is now a simple external bar that locks into a pin for downhill skiing, or flips up for low-friction touring. It’s simple, foolproof, and allows for quick transitions.
