Brigantes Presents – Adventurous Training Front Runners

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

Each week we bring you products that should be considered on an AT kit list. This week it’s the Scarpa UK Manta Pro.

The Manta Pro is a tough mountain climbing boot for Scottish conditions and alpine summers.

Designed with UK mountain conditions in mind, the Manta is a perfect blend of durable boot building heritage and modern lightweight technology. The upper is a tough 2.8mm reversed suede giving great protection from the elements and long term durability, backed up with a Gore-Tex performance waterproof membrane. The microtech cuff is lightweight with great mobility giving a secure, neat fit around the ankle.

The Manta is built on the classic FT last, which has a little more volume, ideal for comfort on long Scottish walk-ins. The Vibram Pentax Precision sole unit is ideal for mountaineering, with a durable mont rubber compound and lugs spaced for mechanical grip, with a climbing zone for scrambling and via ferrata. The broad rubber rand runs from heel to toe and gives great durability against rocks, as well as reducing pressure from crampon bindings. The Manta is fully C2 crampon

compatible.
