Stable over challenging terrain
This mountaineering-centric boot from Scarpa employs a Vibram Mulas S/Mont outsole to help adventurers stay stable over challenging terrain.
Excellent grip on both wet and dry surfaces
Its profile employs a mix of triangular and trapezoid-shaped lugs to deliver grip on both wet and dry surfaces. Its front end is fitted with a climbing zone to give added control during an ascent. Also, it has a heel brake, which helps users when tackling downhill conditions.
The Scarpa Ribelle Tech OD is able to give outdoor enthusiasts a cushioned ride, thanks to its light PU midsole. This material is known for absorbing shock while being resilient to wear and tear. It has an Activ Plus insole, which grants extra cushioning and comfort underfoot. The midsole’s zone also sports a welt for semi-automatic crampon attachment.
Scarpa’s Ribelle Tech OD is equipped with an upper made of KCN Tech and S-Tech fabrics. These materials, which incorporate high-tenacity Cordura and Kevlar materials, make the boot resistant to abrasive elements while keeping it lightweight.
An OutDry membrane is embedded into the upper to prevent water intrusion while allowing excess moisture to escape. It is also lined with Primaloft technology to trap heat inside the footgear.
Heel security and support
A full rand wraps around the base of this Scarpa offering for durability and trail protection. It wraps around the rearfoot area to give extra heel security and support. The Ribelle Tech OD’s lacing system employs a series of metal eyelets and a Velcro cover to help the wearer adjust its fit. The boot’s sock-like ankle gaiter has a pair of pull loops to give easy on and off.
