The innovative last shape and the unique design are immediately recognisable as a member of the RIBELLE family: This is the Ribelle Lite OD.

The combination of Sock-Fit XT construction system, the Tech Fabric materials, and the OutDry® technology make the Ribelle Lite OD boot ideal for technical trekking, alpinism and for mountain guides and mountain professionals. The Pentax Precision III sole has a light PU midsole and Vibram® Mont compound on the outsole. The TPU crampon insert on the heel makes it compatible with the use of semi-automatic (C2) crampons while the front part of the sole makes easy for the foot to roll fast off the heel.

Scarpa's Ribelle Lite OD is the little brother of the Ribelle Mountain Tech OD boots. A lightweight solution for those seeking innovation, lightness and a fast and comfortable boot. The style and design of the Ribelle is definitely like Marmite, given that you either love them or hate them, but these are very innovative in a lot of different ways.

One of the main features of the boot is the integration of the OutDry waterproof, breathable technology, together with the Sock-Fit construction which is exclusive to Scarpa. The OutDry membrane is laminated to the inside of the upper, so there's no gap in between the upper and the membrane where the water could seep in.

They're a very light boot and would suitable for classic alpinism. We recommend reading Trek & Mountains review below to find out how it stood up in their group test.

Super Light

I've just had the one winter jaunt up and down Swirral Edge in them. Really comfy, only a small amount of crampon time but they were more than stiff enough to cope with the terrain although I do have very small feet. The fact I was able to run most of the way down the hill says a lot for the lightness of these boots. Highly recommended.

Great first impressions

When you open the box, the Scarpa Ribelle Lite OD boots are certainly striking. Personally, I love in your face looks and bright colours but they probably aren’t for everyone. On picking them up, they definitely live up to the Lite moniker. They are lighter than most other B2 rated boots on the market. This lightness carries over into the way they feel when you lace them up the first time. The memory foam on the ankle is extremely comfortable and moulds as you wear them. They feel more like a stiff trainer than a mountain boot. I find that most B rated boots are too narrow for me without going up from my normal size but the rounded toe and asymmetric last make these boots a perfect fit. The spacious toe looks almost like a pair of plimsolls with the rubber over the front. There is a snug fit in the heel which suits me well so there has been no heel lift or unwanted movement at the back of the boot. They have been extremely comfortable after 6 hours straight with no hot spots or pressure points. The sole seems to have a natural rocker that makes them easy to walk in on the flat. Once things point upwards, I have found them extremely capable scrambling up wet Lake District limestone crags and ridges. They are confidence inspiring and stiff enough to get toes on to small holds on the way up. I’m not sure if they are more of a B1+ in terms of stiffness as they are so easy to walk in or whether this is down to the rocker in the sole and their light weight which just makes them more comfortable to walk in compared to other B2 boots. I bought them with Winter in mind but sadly there has been no snow and ice yet to test them with crampons or snow shoes. On mild days with the temperature hovering around 8-12C I’ve found them to be pretty warm, a bit too warm perhaps, so they should be ideal for typical UK Winter conditions. Time will tell and I’ll be updating the review once I’ve had more time in them.
