Product Info

Skis like an all-mountain alpine boot, hikes like a touring boot. Finally there's a medium-width Cabrio design that blends high performance on the down with a great walk mode and high traction soles. The Dalbello Panterra 100 Ski Boots are incredibly versatile and will take good care of you, from the scary steep Dolomite couloirs to the tiny Italian cobblestone lanes you'll stop at for lunch.

Product Details

Fit

Last: 102-100 mmExclusive Dalbello Technology: Developed to permit skiers to regulate overall boot width - from a range of 101mm to 103mm - when closure tension on toe buckle is increased or decreased. “Set it, and forget it”. Once VVF has been set, Panterra models may be skied/put on/taken using remaining 3 buckles.

Contour 4 Shell-FitExclusive 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.

Flex

100 Flex RatingA versatile medium flex for the advanced skier who rides hard but still wants some give in their boot

Liner

Trufit 2.0 Custom Fit SystemTRUFIT liners are designed to fit feet precisely and comfortably right out of the box. The liners may also be custom heat formed using a quick and easy heat molding procedure performed in the ski shop. The liners have a reduced volume fit and are made with PE foams and a performance insole.

Shell Materials

dbHylite Performance PolymerDalbello's collaboration with the University of Bologna has yielded a new lightweight super-stiff performance polymer with extra shock absorbing properties.

Cabrio DesignCabrio 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.

Stance

Center Balanced StanceToday's modern rockered skis and lateral skiing technique require a much more upright and neutral (flatter) stance. Once only offered to racers, Dalbelllo is the first company to deliver this performance enhancing technology to the hungry masses. Center Balance "Rocker" Stance allows skiers of all stripes to take full advantage of their equipment by centering their body mass over the sweet spot of their skis for more power and control with less effort.

Ski/Walk Mode

New Ski-Hike MechanismThin, lightweight, and compact. New, advanced function "Hike/Ski" control combines extended range of hiking/walking motion with solid, sensitive and powerful ski control.

Buckles

DynalinkDalbello Exclusive Dynalink closing system: instep buckles linked to shell for highly effective rearfoot closure system minimizing foot sliding, heel lift and boot shell distortion for improved control and enhanced performance leaving the cuff free to flex.

Variable Volume Fit (VVF)Provides a high degree of shell width adjustment. The amount of closure is superior to any classic overall shell design. This micro buckle gives the boot variable width between 102-100 mm and the buckle can remain closed for entry / exit.

4 Micro Adjustable F16 Aluminum Buckles

Power Strap

Dalbello Panterra 100 ID Ski Boots have power straps

Sole

New Walking SolesBi-injection PU / rubber toes/heels + Rubber Arch Clad (select models) provides durability, stability and traction while walking and climbing.

    this was the second pair i tried and they felt awsome on my feet. I did the heating process to mold the liners to my feet. I have not got to use them yet but feel i am going to be happy with them,

    Comments about Dalbello Panterra 100 Ski Boots 2014:

    Bought these boots last week and got them out a couple days ago, so this is a first time use review.

    Tried on about 12 pairs of boots and had these on for at least an hour buckled up before I pulled the trigger on them. Let me say first of all, that these walk really well. They are comfortable and grip the snow and ice better than any boot I've had.

    Flex is around the medium range and I skied a variety of conditions from hard pack chunky crud and they really felt controllable. They pitched forward much more than my old boots so the first few runs felt funny, but once I was dialed in they provided much more control and precision than my last pair of Rossi buckets

    Overall, considering I am an intermediate skier, I will grow into these quickly and I highly reccommend them. They feel very light also.

      Great upgrade from Flexons, 3 piece design with proper flex. Buckle at ankle holds heel in place perfectly. Good resort boot, would not tour with this boot.

        Comments about Dalbello Panterra 100 Ski Boots 2014:

        I've been a Dalbello boot fan for as long as I can remember, but every time I buy new boots I like to try on a variety of brands and models. I should stop...no matter the case, I always end up back with Dalbello, and these boots just might be the most comfortable and versatile boot I have every owned. I knew these were the boots the moment I stepped into them. The 3-piece construction makes entry and exit very easy and the boot essentially turns into a 3-buckle system once you set the forefoot buckle. The forefoot buckle allows you to dial in the last from 100-102mm, and once you've found the sweet spot you never have to unbuckle it again...hence a 3-buckle system. There is also a setting above the hike/walk mechamism that allows you to adjust the flex of the boot depending on whether you're on powder or hard-pack. I've yet to use these boots, so I can't comment on whether it makes a noticeable difference, but I'm anxious to give it a shot and report back. The hike/walk mechanism is an improvement over past versions...you can actually feel a difference which will be a huge help for getting to those hard to reach spots. And again, as I can't comment on their performance just yet, apparently these boots were designed specifically with rockered skis and variable camber shapes in mind, so I'll have to see how that plays out. All in all, I can't wait to get shredding in these boots!
