  Scarpa Manta (Women's) - Bargain of the Day - Friday, April 03, 2009

One for the girls this time...

The 2008 version of the Ladies Scarpa Manta M4 Tech is currently available for half price (£82.50) at S & R. Ok, so the 2008 version isn't compatible with GSB crampons but to be honest who cares? The chances are your current crampons will be something like G10s or G12s (i.e. not GSB compatible) so it just means you don't have a buy another pair! Also the 2009 version retails for anything between £160 and £200 (is it just us or does each 'new' version of the Manta seem to cost an extra 20 - 30 quid?). Given the popularity of this boot, Scarpa are taking quite a gamble assuming everyone will continue to buy what is already quite an expensive boot as well as a pair of GSB compatible crampons. We see on their website that Scarpa are trying to soften the blow by getting retailers to offer £20 off the Grivel Airtech Newmatic GSB when bought with the Manta.

The Womens Scarpa Manta is often seen as the definitive 4 season boot for the UK and over the years has won a host of "Best in Test" awards (or similar) from the likes of Trail, TGO etc.

Grab yourself a bargain in time for Easter...
