The Vanguard Carbon Yellow is a new ski touring boot developed by La Sportiva, offering both great travel and consistency on the descent.
The Vanguard Carbon Yellow is the answer to the demand of those who are looking for both performance during descents and a natural stride on ascents. Offering a good compromise between weight and performance without being ultra-light, the shell is a mix of carbon and biosourced pebax. In addition, the high density Vibram sole ensures good durability, and a good grip if you make a small approach with your skis on your back.
What is the program of the La Sportiva Vanguard Carbon Yellow ski touring boot?
With its 63° of travel and its relatively light weight of 2.9 kg per pair in the mondo size 26.5/27, the Vanguard Carbon allows you to envisage great ascents. It won't be the fastest, but it is still very efficient thanks to the range of travel. On the other hand, it is great for descents thanks to the rigidity of its carbon/pebax shell which ensures a flex equivalent to a 130-flex alpine shoe. It is therefore a model of choice for committed freeride skiing.
