Hello,

has anyone of you tried the Scarpa Avant and can
give me a short review how they feel on a splitboard?

I just had a short look on them today and they
felt pretty fine.

Thank u for your help.

Stefan

Did not know you could still find these. I have used this boot for the last 5 years? or so.

Price point ski boot, that works well as a snowboard boot. Soft upper, 2 lean positions, and most important, the middle buckle is in the right place to keep your heal down and let you use the upper buckle to leave loose to tight depending on where you want it.

If you have read various ideas on boots here, you will see that many people have modified boots for better performance, given this is a softer ski boot I have not done anything to the boot, save getting a better liner.

On the down side, the newer boots out there have better ankle articulation for touring, and are probably lighter.

I use these in duck stance, -5ish rear to 25-30 in the front.

I would guess you could get these for a good deal, can not use w. dynafit, but I imagine you saw that on the boot.

Let me know if you have other questions.
