SCOTT S1 Carbon Ski Boot

SCOTT S1 – A Game-Changer

The S1 Carbon is a game-changer in the free-touring market. Designed for the distinct demands of the modern skier, the S1 Carbon offers touring capability and comfort without sacrificing powerful, confidence-inspiring downhill performance. A unique and innovative ski/walk-mechanism, carbon inserts and strong rivets allow for a new level of stiffness. Bringing this mechanism – we call it the Power Bridge – to the front of the boot, we reached a huge range of movement.

INNOVATION

THE NEXT LEVEL IN SKIING SAFETY

The Symbol 2 Plus D doesn’t only have a totally new design, but also comes with 3 key safety technologies, making it the safest and most ventilated helmet we have ever made. This award winning helmet is the first ski helmet to integrate D3O™, an extremely performing shock absorption material as well as a MIPS™ layer. This helmet has established a new standard for low, mid, and high velocity impacts. With a totally new shape, the second generation boasts a much lower profile than its predecessor and our 360° Pure Sound ear pads, a SCOTT developed technology allow for better noise detection.

SCOTT Sports – Back Country Camping and Line Scoping in Alaska

SCOTT Freeski athletes Sam Cohen and McKenna Peterson, had eyes on a Spring trip to Alaska for the 2017 season. However, with a strange wind event destroying the snow pack in early January along most of the coastal mountain ranges in well-known areas such as Haines, the team was forced to look deeper. Coming upon the Zone known as the Brothel Spine wall, nestled in the Fairweather Range of AK, Sam and company decided this was the place and settled in for 3 weeks of skiing and adventure.

SCOTT Celeste III – Women’s Backcountry Ski Boot – First Look

The following is a review from wildsnow.com by Lisa Dawson

c3_3395

Backcountry skiers who tour in the mountains and ski on-and-off the resorts are always looking for the boot that can do it all. A boot that is lightweight for skinning up peaks, but has enough beef when the call of the day is lift served yo-yo laps.

Last winter I spent many days in Scott’s Celeste 2 women’s ski boot. For its performance, comfort and weight, (and perhaps because the old Garmont last seems to fit my feet the best) the boot became my favorite. It would have been perfect except for a glitchy walk mode switch. Even after I sent them back for repair, the boots would occasionally lock when uphilling.

Improved walk/ski system: the hook.

Among other things, I am delighted to report that Scott improved the design on the Celeste III with an external lean lock, replete with additional extra hook in the lock mechanism. This type of lock clearly makes accidental switches from walk to ski, ski to walk mode nearly impossible.

(Tech Note from Lou: In our testing of Scott Cosmos 3 this winter, I was overall pleased with Scott’s extra little hook on the end of the external lean lock bar. While clever, given just the right cuff angle and conditions the hook can occasionally be an extra barrier to full seating of the lean lock bar. As with all external lean lock bars, solution is to visually inspect the hook and bar as you switch modes, if in doubt about engagement, tap with your ski pole grip and consider the possibility of ice in the slot that might require manual “intervention.”)

Many external lean locks have just a slot that engages a horizontal pin. Such have proven to be okay, but why not a little insurance against the lean lock getting banged and disengaged? Celeste III boasts this little hook (pictured is that of the Cosmos 3) to keep your good side up. For touring mode it disengages when you pull the string.

Another minor gripe I had with the Celeste 2 was the shell’s removable boot board (the spacer between liner and shell, at the sole) was plastic and broke in half. This was easily fixed with duct tape, but happily, Scott upgraded the boot board in the Celeste III. The revamped boot board is made with a resin impregnated mesh, co-molded with a denser plastic material at the heel. The resin impregnated mesh is fairly common as ski boot spacers and boot boards but having it co-molded with the denser plastic in the heel is a nice touch.

Boot boards are a favorite here at the WildSnow mod shop. They allow some customizations as well as slightly increasing warmth. In this case the boot board is nearly flat with no built-in arch. That’s an important feature for custom boot fitting, as adding material and custom shaping for the foot is easy when you start from neutral.

Celeste III boot bed.

The Celeste III comes with Scott’s “Power Lite Liner.” I have big calves, a wide fore-foot and a normal heel. As Julia mentioned in her overview of new women’s boots for 2017/2018, Celeste is one of the widest backcountry boots. It fits my foot well and I especially like the aggressive built in L-pads. They keep my heel nicely anchored and with no blisters.

Perhaps the most ingenious feature is the locking lace mechanism. I like my inner boots loose for the uphill and tight for the downhill. Maybe I never learned how to tie my tennies properly when I was a kid, but a normal shoelace knot doesn’t work for me. It either loosens too much or if I do a double-knot, it is time consuming to undo for ascending the second lap.

Scott’s nifty locking mechanism works so well that if they were ever sold separately, I’d buy them by the dozen for my street shoes. They lock down tight and loosen up easily. It’s a flat plastic piece so it doesn’t add a gap under the tongue. You have to see it for yourself to fully understand how functions but believe me, it is exceptional.

Conclusion: Bear in mind this is a “first look” of the actual retail version, prior to our extensive testing (soon to occur?). Near as we can tell, the bugs have been worked out of the Celeste, what remains is to enjoy this basic but clearly effective offering from Scott.

Teton Gravity Research – Rogue Elements

 

Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of their imagination. We are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge.

In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone poll-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.

Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury and glory, and witness the unimaginable.

SCOTT Scrapper 115 Ski | POWDER Skier’s Choice

 

A review of the SCOTT Scrapper 115 in the 2017 POWDER Buyer’s Guide

By Powder Magazine

Made to shred the cheese right out of the mountain, the Scott Scrapper, featuring Scott’s 3Dimensional Sidecut, works pretty much every day except for the truly icy and firm. A paulownia wood core runs the length of the ski between sheets of carbon and fiberglass. A titanal strip reinforces the binding mount. Steel edges top the construction off. “Awesome, super light ripper,” says Salt Lake City skier Spencer Harkins. “The Scott Scrapper can charge anything but still be fun and floaty.”
