Scarpa Manta Tech GTX Product News

© Ed Smith

The Scarpa Manta has been an icon for over three decades. As a multi award winning model in various generations it has represented the "benchmark" in 4 season Mountain boots. Evolving over many generations, the new Manta Tech represents the 7th incarnation in a long line of market leading equity!

Built on the proven and very well appreciated FT last, it offers a unique and complimentary fit to other models in the mountain collection.

The outsole package maintains its stability with a proven, durable and reliable package that suits the workhouse nature of the boot and underfoot assurance is maintained with the outstanding Vibram Mulaz S sole unit.

The key changes however focus on the upper, where lines have been cleaned reducing stitching and materials facilitating the updated cosmetics, whilst maintaining a perfect flexation/support balance in the cuff area. The use of a larger heel pull tab facilitates easier access in and out of the boot, especially with a gloved hand. The use of the partial TPU rand, has helped with the optics, but also reduced some weight, alongside the new lace hardware. A key update has been to use the higher insulation of the GORE-TEX® Insulated Comfort, which will allow the boot to perform at a higher altitude and in colder conditions than previous generations.

Who wrote this, "incarnation in a long line of market leading equity!" let's hope this was a cut-n-paste from a business bullshit generator and not the work of an actual "writer"...

They look nice boots and are still grey like back in 1991 when I first saw people wearing them, but yeah - WTF? Is there anyway in which that sentence makes any sense? Isn't equity in that sense just the value of a company as expressed by shares sold? Leaving the boots aside - can you have "market leading equity" in any sense? One of the business-y types here might be able to explain if some business people use that term in a way that I at least don't understand at all. :)
