The Scarpa Manta Pro GTX is a revitalised and modernised version of the stalwart Scarpa classic, and is lighter, more durable and still an all-round B2 boot.
Built to perform and last in the British hills but still maintaining its alpine credentials, the Manta Pro GTX has been designed to cover the same bases as its well-loved sibling. Scarpa have applied a more modern slant to the overall design and aesthetics of this latest mountaineering boot to carry the Manta name and like the other similarly modern styled mountain boots in this series, the Manta Pro GTX features the more precise fitting FT last, rather than the more traditional, higher volume DL last seen in the original Manta.
The upper portion of the Manta Pro now sits on a Pentax Precision XT Vibram unit, which features both 'Activ Impact Technology', a climbing zone in the toe area and a more aggressive tread pattern. Impact protection and heel strike comfort have been massively improved by the use of a TPU crampon plate, which sits on top of a durable PU shock absorbing insert, plus another insert under the fore foot. The flex characteristics are more progressive, than in its fore bearer, with the addition of the Pro-Fibre XT 20 mid-sole, proving more comfort over longer distances. Other points of difference come by way of a pulley utilising speed-lacing system, a part L-tech (synthetic) part leather upper, for increased durability and weight saving, and an overall lighter construction.
