's new Sherpa models are for the next generation of alpine touring enthuasists looking for a boot with balanced crossover performance, both uphill and down. The Dalbello
Sherpa 7/3 Ski Boots are engineered for comfort on the ascent and lightweight handling, and designed to be powerful enough to steer long, wide, modern big mountain skis through the most difficult snow and terrain. Developed under the guidance of legendary extreme skier and mountaineer Glenn Plake, the 7/3 nomenclature indicates a target user who spends 70% of the time going up and 30% going down.
Cabrio Design 3 Piece Technology - 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. Smooth and progressive forward flex is precisely controlled using an external shell tongue.
100 mm Last - Securely envelopes the anatomical contours of the foot and lower leg for maximum foot retention with enhanced sensitivity and responsiveness
Note - Sherpa Series boots break on the half-size, so the 26.5 and 27.0 boot shells will be the same boot sole length (307 mm).
ID Thermo Pro Liners - Developed jointly by engineers from Dalbello and Intuition® Sports of Vancouver, Canada, I.D. Thermo Liners are the lightest, warmest and easiest to fit innerboots in the world. Heat molding eliminates relative movement between the liner and shell resulting in improved response and accurate and powerful energy transmission to the ski.
