The famous Scarpa Manta walking boots have been radically updated with modern construction and materials but is still aimed at the same UK mountaineers that it always was.
The upper now uses the Scarpa FT fit which is a closer feel, more precise, ideal for climbing and scrambling but with a medium volume so it's not an aggressive vertical sports only shape.
Comfort is built in and the Manta features Scarpa's Autofit Collar, a combination of design and padding to maximise comfort and support, which in a fairly stiff boot like the Manta is important area. The Flex Point design allows for ankle mobility.
The sole is a new Pentax Precision XT unit with Activ Impact Technology featuring a climbing zone in the toe area, for scrambles and toe placement, but with a new more aggressive tread pattern for grip. Perfect for winter climbing and mountaineering.
Impact protection and heel strike cushioning have been massively improved because of a new TPU crampon plate which sits on top of durable PU shock absorbing insert, plus another insert under the fore foot.
In summary the new Scarpa Manta Pro is a tough UK Hill and mountain boot for all year round use, B2 rated for winter mountaineering and walking, suitable for use with B2 rated crampons.
