Women's Backcountry Ski Boots 2019
TECNICA ZEROG TOUR SCOUT W
Flex: 105 Last: 99mm
The power of lightness. To date, ski touring has involved compromising downhill performance to save on weight. Those days are now over. The Zero G Tour Scout W weighs just 1,360 grams and boasts a 55° range of motion in hike mode. A 4-buckle design with a true flex of 115 makes the Zero G Tour Scout W second to none in downhill performance. So, feel free to go farther, higher, bigger, and faster. The Tour Scout W will take you there.
Bootfitter’s comments: Brand new for this season, the ZeroG Tour Scout is a lightweight, high-tech backcountry boot that still packs plenty of punch to shred the downhills. The Grilamid shell is lighweight, stiff and can be fully customised for a personal fit, while Tecnica’s new walk mode gives great range of motion, eliminates slop and allows for adjustment of the forward lean angle.
Available in our Niseko Hirafu and Hakuba stores.
Scarpa Gea RS
Flex: 110 Last: 99mm
No compromise. The new GEA RS, now lighter, stiffer and more comfortable, represents the new benchmark in the ski touring world. Lightness and comfort for uphill, stiffness and excellent control for the hardest downhill.

Bootfitter's comments: A lightweight but powerful touring boot, the Gea RS represents a no-compromise option for serious backcountry skiers. The Intuition liner and innovative buckle configuration give a dialled fit.

Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour W
Flex: 110 Last: 103mm
Either-or is so yesterday. The HOJI PRO TOUR knows no compromise. On the descent, it holds its own against alpine competitors thanks to its high rigidity and optimum power transfer on the ski. At the same time, the boot enables efficient climbing technique with superb comfort, flexibility, and maximum freedom of movement with a cuff rotation of 55 degrees. This enables a natural, energy-saving walking motion even on very steep terrain. The Speed Nose ensures additional efficiency, agility and maneuverability. With a last width of 103.5mm, the Ultra Lock Strap, and three micro-adjustable buckles, the foot sits ideally positioned to deliver best performance and function precisely on the downhill, even on demanding terrain. The quick and simple switch between uphill and downhill modes is accomplished with just one kick thanks to the patent-pending Hoji Lock System. The ski/walk system’s mechanism is integrated into a cable system along with the buckles and the Ultra Lock Strap. For the switch into downhill mode only the rear lever must be moved. After that, the boot is locked into an 11-degree angle and ready for fun descents. Another advantage is its compatibility with the innovative Cramp-In crampon.
Bootfitter's comments: The all-new Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour Womens' is not your typical backcountry boot. Built exclusively for use with tech-style bindings, it offers excellent hiking performance at a light weight. However, the ingenious new walk mode design gives uncompromised control and power for the downhills. With a wider fit than most boots in this category, the Hoji Pro Tour W offers versatile backcountry performance for a wide range of skiers.
Available in our Niseko store.
