Alpina Racing Roller Ski Boots

Postby Magnus Johansson » Thu May 24, 2018 2:13 pm

Alpina has recently released in its Racing series a new roller ski boot line-up consisting of a classic, combi and skating model. It is not included at www.alpinasports.com yet but the boots are available at e.g. www.skistart.com.

From what I can tell - Alpina's new R-series (RCL, RSK, RCO) is their new entry level line. I think they replace the older S-line (grey/silver). The prices look good.

Alpina's racing series (ESC, ECL) has been available for a few seasons - I don't see any changes for 2018. However, Fischer has a new skate rollerski boot for 2018/19 RCS Skate - looks awesome!

OK, I thought the Racing series is Alpina's new intermediate line. I have not heard that they are giving up the Allround series of roller ski boots that are very popular here in Sweden. One can still find, by the way, the old Sport models at some retailers. An interesting detail with the new Alpina Racing Classic Summer is that it is a little higher cut than the Allround and Elite models, and therefore resembles Bota's classic roller ski boots.

Thanks for the tip, Dave! Yes, Fischer's new skate model seems very well thought out: https://www.fischersports.com/en_en/rcs ... kate-40274
