The Dalbello Panterra 100 Ski Boots are the ultimate all mountain performer with an adjustable flex and hike/ski mechanism in the cuff. For the individual who likes a mid-flex boot with plenty of options for customization and adjustment, this boot will keep your feet happy and your skis uncrossed (hopefully). The Panterra 100 has an adjustable forefoot last with Dalbello s VVF technology and offers Dalbello s TruFit Performer liner with Ulteva foam. Part of Dalbello s "All Mountain Adventure" series, this boot is truly designed to bring you performance and comfort from the resort, to the backcountry, and back.
100-102mm Last Dalbello's VVF technology gives this boot an adjustable forefoot last that can vary from 100 mm to 102 mm simply by closing the front buckle in a different notch.
Variable Volume Fit (VVF) System This exclusive Dalbello technology was developed to permit skiers to regulate overall forefoot width from 100 mm to 102 mm using the toe buckle. Dalbello advises you to "set it and forget it" - once your width has been set, Panterra models may be skied, put on, and taken off with the remaining 3 buckles.
Contour 4 Shell Fit 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.
Split Fit Tongue Dalbello’s Split-Fit Tongue has a unique fore-aft sliding design that allows the tongue to accommodate a taller instep comfortably. The sliding function also allows for extremely easy entry and exit.
Flex: 100 A moderately stiff flex for all-mountain skiers who prefer a bit of give in their boots.
Adjustable Flex With the turn of an allen key, a function on the back of the cuff allows you to adjust the boot's flex by approximately ten flex points from 100 ("hard") to 90 ("soft").
TruFit Performer Liner These liners are 100% pre-formed and ready for try-on and skiing right out of the box! Ulteva foam is a pressure sensitive material that will automatically form to the foot over time. It is similar to memory foam, only more supportive and resilient. TruFit liners can be heat molded to personalize the heel and ankle pocket if desired.
Cabrio Design Architecture Cabrio Design Architecture - Dalbello’s critically acclaimed, 3 Piece Cabrio Design architecture has been the cornerstone of their performance, all mountain, and freestyle models for more than a decade. This unique construction combines a 3 piece construction assembly - shell/cuff/tongue – that comfortably secures the foot and lower leg while optimizing smooth and progressive flexibility. Dalbello’s Cabrio models provide the ultimate in responsive performance to ski your best. Cabrio Design permits the use of stiffer and more rigid plastics in the lower shell. This strengthens the support around the foot and lower leg providing quick response and precise transfer of power to the ski edges. This design also prevents the lower shell from distorting and bulging as the boot flexes, making the boot more smooth and stable at high speeds and on irregular terrain.
Shell / Cuff / Tongue PE (Polyether) / PU (Polyurethane) / PU
Center Balanced "Rocker" 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.
Adjustable Cuff Alignment Permits skiers to align the lateral inclination of the upper cuff to the skier’s leg. Outside hinge cuff alignment using 5mm hex tool, rotate the mechanism clockwise, or counterclockwise, to align boot cuff to desired position.
Adjustable Heel Inclinator Raising or lowering the heel inside the boot can improve rearfoot and ankle comfort for some skiers. Changing foot angle also changes fore/aft balance which can improve ski response and turn initiation for some skiers.
Ski/Hike Mechanism Thin, lightweight, and compact, this advanced "hike/ski" control combines extended range of hiking/walking motion with solid, sensitive and powerful ski control. Dalbello's Cabrio Design Architecture allows for a highly functional hike mode with no compromise in skiing performance.
4 F16 Aluminum Micro-Adjustable Buckles
Dynalink Rearfoot Retention Dynalink is an independently functioning heel/instep closure band assembly that secures the skier's foot in the middle and rearfoot sections of the ski boot. During boot flex, the Dynalink band does not permit the foot to slide forward or the heel to lift lifting inside the boot shell.
Rubber Clad Hike Sole Bi-injection polyurethane toes and heels and rubber arch clad provide durability, stability and traction while walking and climbing.
Replaceable DuraGrip™ Toes and Heels

Comments about Dalbello Panterra 100 Ski Boots 2016:
Pretty comfy. A bit of pain on my ankle bone, but better than any other boot i have tried. The stiffness is just right, and the ski walk mode is super great for walking around.
