Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Maestrale recall

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Scarpa are recalling Maestrale and Maestrale RS boots in the US. The boots affected were manufactured in 2017.

https://www.scarpa.com/product-recall

Other than the fact I bought them in France, mine meet the other two requirements for being affected Confused

Does anyone know if this might apply to boots purchased outside the US? Maybe Scarpa have more than one production centre which might explain why the recall is US only

The recall notification states US purchased models only. however this may be down to 'liability' in US. I would be worth you asking Scarpa directly

Please note that this recall applies only to the Fall 2017 Maestrale or Maestrale RS models purchased in North America. It does not apply to any other Maestrale or Maestrale RS models. Below is a guide on how to identify the Fall 2017 models.

I emailed Scarpa and received a reasonable reply, stating that the recall was limited to North America as the failure rate had been much greater here. They stated this could be due to the different conditions there, which I suppose is within the realms of possibility (Perso I wonder if it is related to average skier weight).

They also kindly offered to fix my boots if I was still worried.

@ldudley, i was speaking to a colleague based in the alps over the weekend, they have seen well into double figures, so i think it is a bigger problem than Scarpa are admitting to

@CEM, Thanks for that tip, I think with that in mind I'll send mine off for repair.
