F1 GT Men 2023 - Scarpa

Please note: These boots will be in stock from 15th August 2022

For next winter Scarpa have developed two new models for the Alpine Touring Tour Lite series boots.
Scarpa revolutionised what was possible with a lightweight alpine touring boot when they released the F1 boots, which rapidly became the best selling model in this category. 
The F1 LT, introduced in 2020, was even lighter and stiffer and has also been a great sucess. These boots offer efficient climbing, siimple and rapid conversion between walk and ski modes, and adequate downhill control. 
The two models share the same closure mechansim, with a Boa cable to close the shell and a single buckle with 35 mm Velcro strap for the cuff, plus a 25 mm Velcro Strap.
Some skiers found this design, while supplying adequate downhill control, has a rather "on-off" character, lacking the progressivity of conventional ski boot design. Scarpa have developed the F1 GT & XT for these skiers.

The F1 GT shares the same shell design as that of the F1 LT, with a medium 100 mm last but instead of having the Boa system, the F1 GT has a single buckle with Scarpa's Wave Lite closure system. 

A single cable passes across the top of the shell at the front, crosses the top of the forefoot where connects to the buckle teeth before connecting to a rivet on the instep. 
This design enables just one buckle with micrometric adjustment to provide effective closure around the foot with considerably more force than the Boa system could provide.
Closing the buckle tightly, the shell is more compressed and drawn closer to the foot than using the Boa system of the earlier models.

The main cuff is also the same as that of the F1 LT, but with strengthened front cuff panels where the single cuff buckle is positioned. A tradional lightweight buckle, this allows more powerful closure of the cuff
than the buckle/Velcro design of the F1 & F1 LT.
With the same 72° of cuff rotation and the same ski/walk mechanism as the F1 LT, the F1 GT offers supremely efficient friction-free skinning however long your stride.

The F1 GT also shares the same main cuff design as the F1 LT, but with strengthened front cuff panels where the single cuff buckle is positioned.
A tradional lightweight buckle, this allows more powerful closure of the cuff, further assisted by the beefy 45 mm Velcro strap, 10 mm wider than those of the previous models.
The F1 GT has a Flex of 90, slightly softer than the 95 of the standard F1, but offers more progressive power transfer through the turn, providing technical skiers with improved skier-ski interaction, feedback and superior control.

With 4 models in the Tour Lite series for this winter, where does the F1 GT fit in? For skiers with wider feet the regular F1 remains the most comfortable choice, with a 102 mm last.
The F1 also has a traditional tongue design which some skiers find reassuring (the other models all use a gaiter to prevent snow entry).
The F1 GT is lighter than the F1 (1145 g compared to 1260 g per boot 27 MP), has 72° cuff rotation compared to the 62° of the F1, and offers superior downhill performance.
With a recommended price in France of 649 €, 50 € more than the regular F1, the F1 GT an interesting model that we're sure will please many tourers.
