The Scarpa Rebels have a toe welt.

Maybe Scarpa's answer to LaSportiva Trango Cube GTXs?

Well these are 130 grams lighter (per boot). Also there is multiple boots in the Rebel line; ice, lite (doesn't have a toe welt), regular, and ultra.

I thought the Ultra wasn't offered in the US any longer.

Salomon's X-Alp Carbon is about 80 grams less

X alp isn't a B2, far to soft lengthwise. It's only appropriate for softer snow or very moderate angle under 45 degrees if firm. Then again this may actually be Scarapas answer to it....

This +
no rear crampon attachment
no insulation

The new Scarpa Atom Tech is the more direct competitor to the X-alp
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
