Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot

Fresh from our friends on Alpha Centauri (sick mountains there, check 'em out if you haven't), the Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot splits the difference between full-blown rando racing boot and hardcore tourer, with a nylon/carbon shell and cuff that are plenty light enough to crush the skin track while still handling their business on steep faces and in shotgun couloirs. The Alien's most distinguishing feature is the fit. Not many boots can boast a micro-adjustable Boa closure system, but the Alien uses it to secure the foot smoothly and evenly, completely eliminating pressure points and dead spots. Your feet will also dig the HRP Intuition Liner, which is instantly comfortable and offers superb touring performance in any conditions, as well as the UFO Vibram Sole (also recently received from our space friends) which cushions shocks and provides top-notch traction in all kinds of terrain. Of course, what's most important about a lightweight, race-bred touring boot is its uphill performance. The Alien has a 2-piece construction that locks into ski mode and opens with a single A-Light buckle, providing 60 degrees of uphill-touring power and variable degrees of forward lean between 9 and 13 degrees for the way down. When you're locked in ski mode, the Alien's Propulsion Tech System ensures that the cuff remains stiff, giving you all the power and edge grip you need to handle the steep and icy sections that are part of every serious ski descent. Scarpa also gave the Alien a Quick Step-In system, which uses indicators and self-guiding notches to make it easy to step into your tech bindings, even in snowy spots.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
