Panterra 120 ID Ski Boots make me dream of all mountain performance and hiking to out-of-the-way lines. A good ski/walk mode is like the chocolate section of Neapolitan ice cream, and once you try it you won't want to go the the mountain without it. The Panterra 120 incorporates many of the popular structural and performance features of the KR 2 series that many of the world's best freeriders have learned to love, and now a hinging cuff and sticky sole make it just that much more versatile.
Last: 102-100 mm - Exclusive 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-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.
120 Flex rating - A very stiff flex rating is designed for expert skiers who high levels of all-mountain performance.
Kinetic Response Polyamide Tongue - Rigid lateral support for dynamic power-to-ski
energy transfer with comfortable, smooth flex
ID Thermo Liner - Made with a no-tongue overlap design these liners are pre-formed for try on comfort, and can be 100% custom heat molded. New Instant-Fit Construction, lightweight, warm, and all-day comfortable,uniquely patterned constructions for men & women and laminated HD + Instant-Fit Memory Foam
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.
