The Stiffer and more powerful version of Scarpa's Flagship Ski Touring boot, the Maestrale RS is still one of our best sellers as they offer a superb fit for lower volume feet and great skiing and touring functionality.

With the same Grilamid shell and cuff construction as the previous version the 2021 Maestrale RS gives the same superb power transmission and control as the previous version.

The Scarpa aestrale RS has an excellent quality Intuition liner, these feel firm and tight on first acquaintance but with heat moulding and use the liner can give a superb fit which keeps it shape and resists packing down even with heavy use.

Similar in weight to its predecessor and with the same range of motion in walk mode, the Maestrale RS still skis and tours very well.

Scarpa have kept the external walk / ski mechanisms from the previous version which were largely successful. These are easy to use, reliable and rock solid when locked into ski mode allowing zero play when flexing into the cuffs. It is worth making sure that snow and ice is kept out of the bar that the walk mech locks onto as this can mean the boot is difficult to use. A bit of lubricant around the bar works well to resolve this.

They still feature the genuine Dynafit fittings and have a heel lug which is compatible with Marker Kingpin and Fritschi Tecton 12 bindings.

So how do they fit? The shell shape and volume is the same as the previous model of the Maestrale RS. The new liner certainly gives a different fit though, the initial feeling before molding is more even and a little more comfortable, the heel hold feels excellent and there is less depth over the forefoot and toes which could feel a bit too deep on earlier models. They are still fairly low volume, but feel more even over the instep area which was always the key area for the Maestrale family. There are a few common pressure points that people feel but these can be sorted wth some careful shell stretches.

If you've had an earlier model then chances are you should be able to get a good fit from the 2021 series but if you've tried these in the past and found them too tight then you may find the same issue with this latest incarnation.

In summary the new Scarpa Maestrale RS is a fit update to these now classic touring boots with notable improvements to the instant comfort but without a departure from the functionality that have made this family of boots the most popular touring boots out there. Ideal for powerful skiers who ski hard and use bigger skis.
