La Sportiva Spectre AT Boot Review

posted in: Gear Reviews | 19

The La Sportiva Spectre® is the lightest 4-buckle AT boot out there. At around 3lbs 3oz per boot, it’s light on the uphill, and stiff enough for challenging descents; a perfect combination for the Jackson Hole backcountry.

A precise fit can be dialed in with their EZ Thermo Liner, unique and easily adjustable Pegasus Buckles®, canting adjustment, and EZ Fit Toe adjustment for the tongue position. The Pegasus Buckles are light, low-profile, and have a great “fine” adjustment; a knurled screw that has micron-fine adjustment without the need to unbuckle. Overall, it’s a highly adjustable boot that can fit a variety of feet.

La Sportiva Spectre
A 60° range of motion in walk mode and EZ Flex Tounge make long approaches and tours a pleasure. The boot’s tall cuff and Grilamid®/Pebax® construction is stiff enough to drive skis in a variety of snow conditions. There are 3 different forward lean positions for ski mode as well, 10°, 14°, and 18°. The La Sportiva website suggests a stiffness rating of 110. Some have suggested an even higher rating, but suffice to say, it’s plenty stiff for most of us.

I’ve had my Spectres out for Snow King laps, tours on the Pass and in Grand Teton, and bootpacks up Glory. I’ve found it’s touring comfort and weight to be a major benefit for getting one more lap in, or just keeping my feet happy on the long skin out. If you’re into long days in mountains spent seeking out solitude and remote lines, this boot deserves a look. Or, maybe you just like great, light gear to increase the enjoyment of a quick tour. You too, should check them out.

Stop into Skinny Skis and try a pair on!

    Hɑve you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable аnd all. Nevertheless
    just imagine if you added some great pictures ߋr video
    clips to give youг posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but wіth piϲs and video
    clips, thіs website could certaіnly be one of tһe very best in its niche.
    Good blog!

  8. Ꭲoday, I went to the beach front with mү kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 уear
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell tⲟ her ear and screamed. Theгe was a hermit cгab inside and іt pinched
    һer еar. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is complеtely off topic Ƅut I had to tell someone!

    Throughout the awesome scheme of things you get an A for hard work. Exactly where you confused us was on your details. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more correct right here. Having said that, permit me say to you exactly what did work. Your authoring is certainly incredibly powerful and that is possibly why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can certainly see the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not really convinced of how you seem to unite the points that make the final result. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your point but trust in the near future you connect your facts better.
