This recall involves the men's and women's SCARPA F1 EVO ski boots with the Tronic system component. The Tronic system locks the boot into the ski binding. The boots were sold in royal blue for men and aqua blue for women with "SCARPA" written in white letters on the lower outer side of the boot. The model name "F1 EVO" is printed on the upper right outside ankle cuff of the boots.
Consumers should immediately stop using the boots and contact SCARPA North America for a full refund.
The firm has received two reports of torn knee ligament injuries following falls, when the boots failed to release from the binding.
Authorized SCARPA dealers and retailers in the United States and Canada, including Oregon Mountain Community, REI and Skimo Co., and online at www.scarpa.com from October 2014 through January 2015 for about $700.
