It seems like ski boots are always sacrificing comfort with performance, or vice versa--queue up Dalbello’s Blender I. D. Ski Boot, an all-mountain schralper that’s powerful enough for park skiing yet comfortable enough for all-day cruising. Like all of Dalbello’s top performers, the Blender features a Cabrio design that uses three separate pieces (shell, cuff, tongue) to secure the fit, provide a fluid flex, and absorb vibration. Unlike most Dalbello boots, the Blender has an adjustable flex that allows you to decide how hard you want to charge that day.The Blender also features a unique TLG elastic upper cuff that absorbs more shock when you’re coming in for a landing off large jumps. The My Fit liner is thermo-moldable for a customized feel, and the liner has a soft and smooth faux fur inside it for even more comfort. The Dynalink Heel Retention system secures your heel in place, while the Twinstep closure system gives you two option to lock the lowest buckle down wherever reduces pressure on your forefoot the most. Dalbello’s Dura Grip rubber sole comes at a rockered stance to enhance your performance on or off piste.

Dalbello Sports Panterra 120 I.D. Ski Boot Acid Green/Anthracite, 27.5

Dalbello likes following industry trends about as much as your cat likes riding in the car, so it should come as no surprise that the Panterra 120 I. D. Men’s Ski Boot is a little different than most all-mountain boots. The goal is the same--domination of steeps, shredding of groomers, and slaying of cold smoke--but the Panterra goes about getting there in a slightly different way, starting with Dalbello’s famous three-piece Cabrio architecture, which combines a polyurethane shell and cuff with a progressively flexing polyamide tongue for lateral stiffness and a smooth, consistent flex. This lets the Panterra transfer energy into the ski powerfully and efficiently without having the leg-killing qualities of a race boot or the squishy slipper feel of a park boot.The Panterra also features Dalbello’s Variable Volume Fit system, which lets you adjust the last from 100 to 102mm just by tightening the toe buckle, eliminating pinching and foot-crushing tightness. Once the buckle’s been set, there’s no need to undo it, either, since the Panterra’s designed to be taken on and off using only the three top buckles. In addition to the adjustable last width, the Contour 4 shell fit is pre-mapped to the anatomical contours of the foot for a more comfortable out-of-the-box feel with minimal punching and grinding required. The boot also has canting and flex adjustments and comes with a heat-moldable I. D. Now liner that allows you to dial in the perfect fit.As skis have gotten bigger and wider, they’ve started to require a more neutral, center-balanced approach, which Dalbello builds into the Panterra in the form of its Rocker stance, which helps you ride fat, rockered skis as they’re meant to be ridden. The Dynafit rearfoot retention strap pulls your heel straight into the pocket, for hold without shell distortion or pain, and the ski/walk switch and rubber-clad arch and replaceable polyurethane toe and heel lugs let you make short work of exposed ridges, slick rocks, and icy ...

Dalbello Sports Krypton Fusion Ski Boot

Sitting just behind the Krypton Pro in Dalbello’s big mountain freeride line, the Krypton Fusion Men’s Ski Boot throws down with the same tech and high-performance features as its slightly burlier brother, but with a more manageable 120 flex that’s money for shredders looking to step their game up a notch. The 98mm last provides the same snug-fitting performance as the Krypton 2, and the Fusion has the same pre-punched Contour 4 shell fit that’s designed to fit the awkward knobs on your foot comfortably, with only minimal shell fiddling. Your heel will feel more solidly locked down than it ever has, courtesy of Dalbello’s legendary Dynalink Rearfoot Retention system, and the inverted forefoot buckle will wrap your foot into the bootboard rather than squeeze the shell around your toes, giving you a super-stable platform for responsiveness without pinching. Of course, the Fusion would hardly be a Dalbello if it didn’t have the classic three-piece Cabrio design architecture, which uses a stiff shell and cuff for serious lateral power transmission--think bomber edging--but a progressively flexing tongue that skis equally well and comfortably whether you’re putting the hammer down or cruising groomers with your little grom cousin. Bonus: the tongue helps to reduce shin bang and makes the Fusion easier to get on and off, too. Like all Dalbello freeride boots, the Fusion features a center-balanced Rocker stance, which makes it easier to ski today’s big, progressively shaped skis, and lets you adjust the lean, flex, and canting so you can always have your boot dialed to perfection.

Dalbello Sports Il Moro Team I.D. Ski Boot

What happens when you take a gaggle of the best skiers in the world, stick them in a lab with R&D engineers, and tell them to come up with a boot? That Dalbello Il Moro Team I. D. Men’s Ski Boot, that’s what. Designed to help Dalbello’s team riders (guys like Tanner Hall, Russ Henshaw, and Nick Goepper) jib the bejesus out of the mountain and scare the crap out of themselves in the park, the Il Moro is a seriously sick combination of freeride charger and progressive park crusher. This masterpiece starts with Dalbello’s three-piece Cabrio architecture. The shell and cuff are made of rigid polyethylene and polyurethane, respectively, to provide super-precise feedback and direct plenty of power laterally to your edges, while the Kinetic Response tongue is made of polyamide for a smooth, progressive flex that can ramp up to slay lines or be dialed down for serious park performance, so you can kiss shin-bang goodbye without sacrificing hard-charging power. The Il Moro’s also designed to throw down an unbeatable snug and comfortable fit, with a HyperbandFree flex cuff that wraps your lower leg firmly but flexes when you lean on it, and a Dynalink rearfoot retention system that’s linked to the inside of the shell to provide a snug fit and killer heel hold without messing up the carefully-dialed flex of the upper cuff. There’s even an inverted toe buckle, which presses the foot down into the bootboard and is positioned on top of the foot to prevent breaking and bending when you’re getting jib-tastic. All this tech would come to nothing if the Il Moro’s fit wasn’t dialed. Of course, it is, with a Contour 4 shell that’s been mapped to fit the tricky, boney contours of your foot with minimal punching and grinding. It also comes with a heat-moldable wrap-style I. D. Max liner and fully adjustable cant, flex, and lean adjustments so you can dial everything in to your exact specs. Throw in a shock-reducing bootboard and big-ski-friendly center-balanced Rocker stance, ...

Dalbello Sports CX-1 Ski Boot - Kids'

The pint-sized Dalbello CX-1 Kids’ Ski Boot makes your little skier’s first days on the hill fun and painless thanks to a soft-flexing shell and comfy, cozy Super Comfort Jr. liner shaped just for a short stack’s foot. A super-easy ratchet-buckle closure makes dialing in a secure fit a cinch, and low-contour cuff fits small legs comfortably and snugly for shred adventures that bring nothing but smiles. Dalbello also included replaceable and grippy Dura-Grip sole lugs, so the half-pint will have an easier time navigating stairs and you’ll be able to replace the sole instead of buying new boots.

Dalbello Sports Lupo SP I.D. Ski Boot

The Dalbello Lupo SP I. D. Men’s Ski Boot is--let’s be real--a beast, with a 130 flex and a ski/hike mode that make it easier to get to the top of backcountry lines and shred them to smithereens. It’s not designed for long tours where the approach is a priority, but for short skins outside the resort boundary and in-bounds approaches where you’re focused on making the way down look good and the way up a little easier. It also has a rubber-clad arch for some grip, and replaceable toe and heel lugs that let you keep your ridgeline traction maxed out from year to year.Ignore the ski/hike mode, though, and the Lupo is pretty damn similar to Dalbello’s world-crushing Krypton. It has the same three-piece Cabrio architecture, which employs a stiff polyurethane cuff and polyether shell for powerful lateral stiffness and power transmission, and a progressively flexing Kinetic Response tongue for stiffness when you’re descending and flexibility on the uphill (the Lupo comes stock with the 130-flex C’ tongue, but a 115-flex B’ offering is included in the box) . The Contour 4 shell is also mapped to accommodate your ankle and foot bones, reducing the amount of punching and grinding you’ll have to do, and it has a heat-moldable I. D. Max Hike liner for comfort and serious performance on the hike and the descent.The Lupo also has the same Dynalink rearfoot retention system as Dalbello’s more freestyle-oriented boots. Attaching to the shell, rather than the cuff, it pulls your heel snugly into the heel pocket without interfering with the boot’s flex or deforming the fit. The toe buckle is located on top of the boot, which pulls your foot down into bootboard rather than squeezing the shell around it, and it also helps prevent breaking and bending in a crash (not that you’d ever do that) . The Lupo also has a center-balanced Rocker stance that’s designed to drive fat, rockered skis comfortably, too, so you won’t have to mess around with lean angles and stances (although with cant...

Dalbello Sports Menace 2 Ski Boot - Kids'

Set loose your budding ripper in the Dalbello Kids’ Menace 2 Ski Boot and see what magic happens. The three-piece Cabrio shell has a tongue that pivots at the base, making the Menace easy to get on and off, and the top ratchet buckle lets him learn how to fine-tune his own fit. Flex indexed for lightweight skiers, the Menace can take the abuse of a steep learning curve, and the replaceable Dura-Grip heel and toe lugs mean he won’t permanently ruin his boots tramping back and forth to the snack counter. Add in a soft and comfy kid-specific Super Comfort Jr. liner, and your grom will be begging to stay after the sun sets.

Dalbello Sports Boss Ski Boot

The Dalbello Boss Ski Boot breaks the mold in terms of boot design with a progressive three-piece shell and shock-absorbing system. A wide 103mm last accommodates wide feet and delivers a comfortable and relaxed fit. Boosting the boss’s versatility is an adjustable flex index that can be dialed down from 110 to 100 when you need a little more give from your boots. The unique three-piece shell design allows the boot to flex progressively when skiing in the park, but it will maintain a smooth and comfortable feel when you’re linking turns down the frontside. Dalbello’s I. F. Performer liner puts a premium on comfort with a medium density foam insulation and adaptive fit system that will mold to the shape of your foot over time. The DuraGrip soles offer solid traction when you’re hiking park laps and can be replaced when a long season has left them looking a little worn.

Dalbello Sports Krypton Pro I.D. Ski Boot Acid Green/Black, 28.5

When you’re sailing through alfredo-rich couloirs or flying faster than the speed of light down your dream line of choice, you can count on the Dalbello Men’s Krypton Pro I. D. Ski Boot to take you the distance. Designed with a center-balanced Rocker stance, the Krypton utilizes a low footboard ramp and upright cuff to provide optimal performance on rockered skis and efficient power transfer with the least amount of quad fatigue. The boot features a stiff 130 flex and narrow 98mm last, enabling expert-level performance, power, and sensitivity required for exploding through technical ravines, launching cliffs, and leaning clean into the mountainside.Built for enduring a bar fight with a yeti, the shell and cuff are crafted with rigid polyurethane for stone-solid lateral stability and power transmission at max speeds, while the Kinetic Response tongue--available with interchangeable stiff and medium offerings--is made with a flex ribbed polyamide design that sits flush with the leg, making it perfect for sending on steep faces or traversing through tricky terrain. The three-piece design Cabrio architecture is specific to Dalbello and combines the geometrical anatomy of the boot, shell, and cuff technologies for a dynamic, progressive flex and and lateral support on irregular terrain.Designed to fit like a glove, this boot is equipped with a heat-moldable My Fit liner and multiple canting, flex, and lean adjustment options. The midfoot Dynalink retention system attaches to the shell and hugs your heel securely within the heel pocket without interfering with the boot’s flex, while the F16 aluminum buckles are easily adjustable for a fine-tuned fit. The bootboard comes with two options: shock-absorbing or firm, so you can break free from sloppy seconds.

Dalbello Sports Lupo T.I. I.D. Ski Touring Boot Green Fluo Tr/Black, 25.5

Coming out with totally new stuff every year isn’t Dalbello’s M. O., because it’d rather work on perfecting what it has than trying to reinvent an already awesome wheel. Case in point: the Lupo T. I. I. D. Men’s Ski Boot, which is a refined version of the SP I. D. made with lighter plastics, touring-friendly sole lugs, and alloy tech inserts so you can rally around the backcountry, uphill and down, like a squirrel that’s had its tail set on fire.Dalbello knows what works, so it didn’t change much between the Lupo T. I. I. D. and the SP I. D. The three-piece Cabrio design works as well for touring as it does for in-bounds schralping, with a killer combination of precision, comfort, and energy transfer, and Dalbello’s legendary interchangeable tongue design lets you rock a stiff 130 flex. Unchanged too are the venerable Contour 4 Shell fit, which is anatomically designed to accommodate the weird bumps on your ankles, toes, and feet without tons of grinding and punching, and the center-balanced Rocker stance, which puts you in a more neutral position that’s well-suited for riding fat, rockered skis.It did change the cuff material from PU to a lighter, stiffer polymer called dbHylite, which trims a few ounces off the SP I. D.’s weight and lets you ski the T. I. I. D. harder and faster. Different, too, are the replaceable Xtra-Grip rubber sole lugs, which have the rockered shape that works with tech bindings and frame-style alpine touring bindings, but not with traditional alpine clamps. This touring-specific design is reinforced by the boot’s I. D. Max Hike wrap-style liner and burly, reliable ski/hike switch that unlocks the cuff for easy hiking and clamps down for bomber downhill performance. The T. I. I. D. also serves up Dalbello’s legendary Dynalink rearfoot retention system, which pulls your heel into the pocket for a killer slop-free fit, along with a more durable inverted forefoot buckle and canting, flex, and lean adjustments that allow you to nail a near-...

Dalbello Sports Rampage I.D. Ski Boot Black/Bronze, 27.5

With the Dalbello Rampage I. D. Ski Boot on your feet, you’ll be able to send booters, grease rails, and pop off natural features all season without fear of being sidelined by shin bang. Thanks to the pre-punched Contour 4 shell and heat-moldable liner, the Rampage delivers a comfortable and responsive fit out of the box. By using three pieces of plastic instead of the traditional two, Dalbello is able to use super-stiff plastic in the lower shell and cuff for serious control and lateral stability, but still offer up a comfortable, progressively flexing tongue that’ll give just enough on hard park landings while offering up plenty of support when you’re rallying the rest of the mountain.Dalbello also cooked up a whole mess of fit refinements over the years, a number of which are featured on the Rampage. Key among them is the Dynalink Rearfoot Retention system, which uses a flexible cable to pull the foot back into the heel pocket for bomber hold when you’re pushing the limit. By connecting the cable from shell-to-shell, instead of shell-to-cuff, Dalbello’s able to keep the Rampage’s flex smooth and consistent and virtually eliminate heel lift, letting you ski harder and more securely in any terrain. The inverted forefoot buckle also pulls your foot down into the bootboard, instead of pinching the shell around the ball of your foot, and the adjustable lean, flex, and canting mechanisms let you get the Rampage’s fit tighter than your favorite set of man-tights. As a final touch, Dalbello designed the Rampage with a center-balanced Rocker stance, which provides a more neutral platform for wide and rockered skis, and it made sure the toe and heel lugs are replaceable, keeping your soles grippy and your bindings releasing properly.

Dalbello Sports Lupo 120 Ski Boot

Let Dalbello’s Lupo 120 Ski Boot help you tromp around those big powdery mountains you call your playground. Designed and ridden by top-level freeriders, the Lupo provides the utmost power and precision for aggressively skiing at any speed down tree lines, big bowls, and virtually any snow surface. Its stiff flex and narrow last give a precise fit that advanced-to-expert skiers look for in their boots.The Lupo stays on top of the game due to Dalbello’s revolutionary three-piece Cabrio construction that separates the shell in three parts (shell, cuff, and tongue) to assure a smooth flex, a responsive ride, shock absorption, and an easier on and off. Dalbello also hooked this boot up with a ski/hike mode so you can bootpack up killer lines. The Hy-Grip rubber toe and heel assist with hiking over rocks and slick surfaces, and a rockered stance eases hiking and enhances downhill performance.
