The Scarpa Ribelle Lite HD is a lightweight and comfortable mountaineering boot ideal for technical trekking and alpinism.
Favoured by mountain guides and mountain professionals due to the increased stability, comfort and protection, the Scarpa Ribelle Lite HD boots are the perfect solution for those seeking innovation and lightness in fast and comfortable boots. Built on the innovative last shape used in the Scarpa RIBELLE family of boots, the combination of Sock-Fit XT construction system, the Tech Fabric materials, and the HD® technology are what make the Ribelle Lite HD boot ideal for technical trekking and alpinism.
The Ribelle Lite utilises the Pentax Precision III sole which has a light PU midsole and Vibram® Mont compound on the outsole which provides great traction on all surfaces. The TPU crampon insert on the heel makes it compatible with the use of semi-automatic (C2) crampons while the front part of the sole makes easy for the foot to roll fast off the heel.
What is HD? Thanks to the HDry® quality standard, the shoes built with this system possess the highest level of waterproofness, breathability and insulation. The waterproof and breathable membrane is firmly laminated to the upper inner side and there are no seams and no gaps where water can penetrate: rain and cold are blocked on the shoe’s outer surface and a large volume of dry air keeps your feet warm and comfortable. The ultra-thin waterproof membrane and the unique lamination method provides a precise fit and keep your shoes dry and light all day.
Main Advantages of HDry® (OutDry Rebranded)
The external layer and the membrane are a unique body; no space in between for water to collect.
Water penetration and absorbency are minimised so so weight does not increase in the wet.
The membrane has a very high capacity of water vapour permeability.
There is no seam sealing tape (as with Gore-Tex), enabling HD to exploit 100% of the membrane breathable surface.
Keeps a large volume of dry air between the skin and the membrane, reducing the risk of dew condensation.
