The F1 W is a minimalist boot that maintains Scarpa’s standard for high downhill performance while weighing a mere 1,077 grams/boot. At such a low weight, it’s no surprise the F1 stood out from the crowd when it came to long slogs in the backcountry. A single buckle (on the cuff) and Boa lacing system (on the forefoot) let the F1 wrap snuggly around my foot, helping to retain energy when power is transferred and ensuring stability when I need it. Word to the wise: Pair this light boot with an equally light ski for best results. —Crystal Sagan
