The new Scott Cosmos II is an upgrade of the original Cosmos from Garmont. The Cosmos II features redesigned tech inserts and forward lean adjusters. It still has the best combination of a touring boot with incredible skiability. The Cosmos II can do it all. The back country guru demands a lightweight boot that allows for easy and nimble adventures without any extra weight dragging around. The Grilamid material shell construction provides the perfect blend of light-weight and stiffness. An adjustable spoiler and solid forward lean adjuster mechanism give the skier between 11.5 and 13 degrees of forward lean. Considering its 125 flex, the Cosmos II is suited for a variety of downhill exploits. On the bottom of the Cosmos II is a Vibram dual density rubber ski mountaineering sole that provides grip on rocks when seriously climbing. The liners are 100% thermoformable, providing precise fit and warmth. If you are serious about your AT adventures, don't settle for anything less.
