Krypton Cross ID Ski Boots 2012: Featuring highly versatile adjustability with smooth and progressive forward flex dynamics, the Dalbello
Krypton Cross ID Ski Boots are slightly more forgiving in fit and function than the Krypton Pro. A softer flexing tongue and "Landing Gear" anti-shock footboard are standard equipment. All Krypton models feature new shell and innerboot last shapes featuring Contour 4 (C4) Fit Concept for improved fit, function, performance, and control.
Dalbello’s critically acclaimed, 3 Piece Cabrio Design combines a 3 piece construction assembly - shell/cuff/tongue – that comfortably secures the foot and lower leg while optimizing smooth and progressive flexibility. Smooth and progressive forward flex is precisely controlled using an external shell tongue. Only Cabrio Design ski boots feature rigid and precise lateral support while at the same time providing a smooth and progressive flex. Cabrio Design is able to adapt to a wider variety of feet shapes and instep heights than conventional ski boots due the “open throat” lower shell/shell tongue construction.
Kinetic Response Tongue
Contour 4 Technology: the anatomical contours of the inside boot-shell and the innerboot lasts are perfectly mated to precisely map 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. Out of the box, Contour 4 Fit Technology delivers all the comfort, precision, and control of a close fitting, low volume, high performance ski boot that has been “punched” and “stretched” by a custom bootfitter.

Dynalink + DC Cable Closure is an independently functioning heel/instep closure band assembly that secures the skiers foot in the middle and rearfoot sections of the ski boot. The closure system prevents the lower shell from bulging and distorting when the boot is flexed forward. Because the skier’s foot is held more securely, high speed stability and control over the skis on irregular and difficult terrain are improved.
