KR 2 Pro ID Ski Boots are engineered for aggressive and accomplished big mountain free-riders. The KR 2 Pro provides lightweight comfort, exceptional warmth, happy amounts of shock absorption and a firm foothold. There are reasons why this boot dominated the ski awards in 2013.
Contour 4 Shell-Fit - Exclusive Dalbello construction technology that maps the anatomical contours of the foot to create subtle "comfort zones" at 4 critical foot points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal & navicular. Relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at these 4 points provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.
Last: 98 mm - Performance fitting cabrio design last shape in all KR 2 models features extreme tapering in rearfoot and achille’s zones with comfort fit forefoot volume. Dalbello’s most accurate and close fitting anatomic last shape features innovative Contour 4 fit technology.
130 Flex rating - A very stiff flex rating is designed for expert skiers who charge hard, fast and confidently, and require a very supportive boot.
Adjustable Flex Tongues - 2 Interchangeable Tongues - Stiff and Medium Flex
Kinetic Response Tongue - Rigid lateral support for dynamic power-to-ski
energy transfer with comfortable, smooth flex
ID Thermo Pro Liner - Made with a no-tongue overlap design these liners are pre-formed for try on comfort, and can be 100% custom heat molded.
Cabrio Design - Cabrio Design ski boots are uniquely engineered to incorporate 3 components: the lower shell, upper cuff and, and external shell tongue. This permits the use of stiffer plastics in the lower shell without affecting the smooth and progressive forward flex that's controlled with the shell tongue. This design strengthens the support around the foot for precise lateral transfer of power. Overall the advantage is smoother power transmission, progressive flex and dynamic rebound. Plus the boot is super convenient to put on and take off.
