The new Gea RS is our stiffest, most powerful women's specific AT boot and is the perfect blend of performance and backcountry functionality. The Gea RS utilizes a bi-injection carbon-infused Grilamid® shell to add power and rigidity without adding weight. The Evo V Frame cuff, which now utilizes Grilamid Bio - a planet friendly, renewable resource - also increases torsional rigidity while also providing a 60-degree range of motion for long efficient strides. The HRS strap keeps your heel planted where it should be to increase performance and comfort on the way up and down while the lower Wave Closure system provides the same security as a 2-buckle system at a fraction of the weight. The glove-friendly Finger Strap features RECCO® Technology for increased avalanche searchability. The Gea RS is for experienced backcountry skiers looking for uncompromising performance.

Developed by our long-time partner Ems-Grivory, Grilamid Bio comes from their GREENLINE of bio-based polyamides. Using plant derived Castor oil rather than petroleum based oil, Grilamid Bio significantly reduces CO2 emissions during production, while maintaining the outstanding properties of rigidity and elasticity required. Castor plants grow well in semi-arid regions and do not compete with food crops, making it an excellent alternative to fossil based sources. Grilamid Bio is non-biodegradable, but is completely recyclable.
