We can all agree that Sean Pettit ain't no slouch when it comes to big mountain skiing. He requires a boot that's up to the task of supporting 60-foot cliffs, powering through pillow fields, and initiating exact turns on high consequence 50° slopes. That's why he rides the Dalbello Lupo SP ID Ski Boots. With one of the burliest hike mode cuff mechanisms ever, the Lupo is able to offer an extended range of motion for slackcountry bootpacks or tour-in approaches without compromising their flex. Stiff, custom fitted, and constructed with Dalbello s cult-inspiring 3-piece Cabrio shell design, the Lupo SP ID Ski Boots cater to the next generation of freeride freaks of nature.
Last: 98 mm This performance fitting Cabrio Design Architecture last shape features precise tapering in rearfoot and achilles' zones with narrow forefoot volume. Dalbello’s most accurate and close fitting anatomic last shape features innovative My Fit technology.
Contour 4 Contour 4 Technology is a revolutionary technological advance in performance ski boot fitting. The anatomical contours of the inside sidewalls of the boot-shell, as well as the innerboot lasts, are precisely “mapped” to the shape of the typical high performance skier’s foot. A little extra “space” is molded into the inside of the boot shell at 4 critical fit points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, and navicular. Contour 4 represents the first level of Dalbello's My Fit System.
My Fit System The Dalbello legendary fit got an upgrade in more than 60% of the boot range thanks to the My Fit System. Liner and shell can now be thermo customized in addition to the pre-molded Contour 4 shell which is included in every My Fit boot.
Flex: 130 As stiff as a freeride boot gets; meant for expert skiers who know where they're going and intend on doing it quickly.
Kinetic Response Tongue Highly resilient polyamide flex ribbed tongue stays in permanent contact with the leg for improved responsiveness and control. Interchangeable flex stiffness.
ID Max Hike 100% customizable liners in 10 minutes. Medium and high density Intuition EVA foam; no tongue overlapping design; balanced and firm foot hold; maximum shock absorption and compression resistance; warmest/lightest foam

Shell / Cuff / Tongue PE (Polyether) / PU (Polyurethane) / PA (Polyamide)
Dynamically Balanced Stance Foot angle, cant angle, and cuff inclination engineered into the shell and cuff positions skiers in a balanced and centered stance for optimum dynamic performance.
Low Cuff Hinge Point High leverage cuff assembly with hinge points mounted approximately 10 cm lower than standard construction boot designs. The low hinging cuff permits the boot cuff to more easily follow the natural movement of the skier’s legs because it has a longer range of forward and rearward hinging motion.
Adjustable Twin Cuff Alignment Permits skiers to align the lateral inclination of the upper cuff to the skier’s leg. Outside and inside hinge cuff alignment using 5mm hex tool, rotate the mechanism clockwise, or counterclockwise, to align boot cuff to desired position.
Ski/Hike Mechanism Solid and sturdy cuff lock/unlock mechanism releases the upper cuff from the lower shell permitting free hinging rotation for an extended range of motion for hiking or climbing. Engineered for maximum performance and power transfer when engaged in “lock” position.
Micro-Adjustable Aluminum Buckles A simple turn of a buckle! Micrometer buckles are easy to use for easy fit customization.
Inverted Forefoot Buckle Forefoot closure buckle above the instep is inverted and designed to close on the top of a boot shell, not the side. The top closure positioning prevents buckle breakage and bending during rail slides, grinds, falls, and transitions.
Dynalink Rearfoot Retention Dynalink is an independently functioning heel/instep closure band assembly that secures the skiers foot in the middle and rearfoot sections of the ski boot.
Screwed Rivets Dalbello uses high quality screwed rivets (as opposed to permanent “crimped” rivets) to allow for easier bootfitter access and repair.
Grip Walk The new boot sole-binding system for increased walking comfort and improved natural gait thanks to a rockered rubber sole. Deep lugs are slip-resistant to provide better traction. Compatible with all "Grip Walk Ready" alpine bindings as well as tech bindings.
Rubber Clad Hike Sole Interchangeable, replaceable, Hi Grip Rubber compound toes & heels improve grip and traction on snow, ice, and rock. High density rubber center arch clad provides additional stability and security while walking and climbing.
Hy-Grip™ Replaceable high traction rubber compound toes & heels. Maximum traction, cushioning and anti-slip protection when walking or climbing.
