The Scarpa Ribelle Women's is a modern hybrid mountain boot, designed for fast moving mountain walking, Via Ferrata and backpacking with heavy loads or at altitude. Compatible with C2 (semi-automatic) crampons with a flex bar.
The Ribelle HD has a soft supple suede upper with thermos-embossing, giving a perfect fit and support. The new HD waterproof membrane is directly laminated to the upper, giving superior weather protection and a very precise fit. The upper is wrapped in a PU Tech layer, shielding the upper and midsole from rocks and scrapes.
The Ribelle family are a new generation of boots designed to allow people to move faster than conventional mountain boots. Core to this is the new ARG last shape, which has low volume technical precision, but with a noticeable toe spring, giving a much more natural and fluid gait. This is married to the new Pentax Precision Roll sole which has a technical Vibram Mont outsole with bi-density PU cushioning, giving a much more natural feel and walking motion.
Main Advantages of HDry®
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.
