Just a quick glance at the Alien 3.0 and you know it's fast. This minimalist carbon marvel gets below 600 grams yet yields a 110 flex! The 3.0 is the ultimate race boot from Scarpa with an all in effort to provide the fastest and lightest uphilling machine in the world.
Full carbon fiber cuff and shell give you the light and stiff performance from this boot. The two units are linked via the Speed Lock Lite closure system. The one lever transition is light, simple and bomber. The shell overlap is a Pebax flap with a BOA closure system. The Pebax flap is cleverly extended over the toe to make a more durable contact point for rocky booters as opposed to having forward facing carbon fiber. Your foot and ankle are protected from the elements by the zip up gaiter which covers the Race 3.0 SL liner. This ankle height liner eliminates friction in the upper cuff where a full height liner would rub. Stay sure footed on high speed rocky scrambles with the weight conscious Vibram UFO 2.0 rubber outsole. Scapra also moved the toe piece pivot point back 5mm to give you a more efficient stride. This has been anecdotally proven with Scarpa and other manufacturers to give more grip and feel from skier to skin track, especially handy with 60mm 3/4 length mohair race skins!
You've trained all summer, ramped up in the early season and are ready to push for the podium. The Alien 3.0 is as uncompromising as your training regimen and ready to fly.
