Product Details

Fit

Last: 98 mmThis performance fitting Cabrio Design Architecture last shape features precise tapering in rearfoot and achilles' zones with narrow forefoot volume. Dalbello’s most accurate and close fitting anatomic last shape features innovative My Fit technology.

Contour 4 Shell FitContour 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.

My Fit SystemThe Dalbello legendary fit got an upgrade in more than 60% of the boot range thanks to the My Fit System. Liner and shell can now be thermo customized in addition to the pre-molded Contour 4 shell which is included in every My Fit boot.

Low Contour Women's Profile CuffFemale boot models with a removable cuff insert allow to expand the boot top opening circumference approximately 5 cm and lowers the overall boot height by 1.5 cm.

Tapered Rearfoot FitDalbello builds its women’s boots on carefully crafted shoe forms (lasts) that are engineered to provide a unique fit and size profile optimized for a women’s unique foot characteristics. Dalbello’s “Lady Lasts” are developed to comfortably fit the contours the foot and to provide support and cushioning for all day comfort. Compared with men’s last, they are narrower in the heel, proportionally wider in the forefoot, and have a higher instep.

Adjustable Rear Cuff SpoilerModular rear boot cuff spoiler adapts the boot cuff to a variety of lower leg shapes. Spoiler permits skiers to increase rear cuff height add rear support and change forward lean.

Flex

Flex: 85A medium-stiff flex for intermediate to advanced all-mountain skiers.

Kinetic Response TongueHighly resilient polyamide flex ribbed tongue stays in permanent contact with the leg for improved responsiveness and control. Interchangeable flex stiffness.

Flex ControlBoot forward flex characteristics may be adjusted to suit skier’s weight, skill level, and snow conditions.

Liner

IF Sport LinerThe IF Sport comes with medium density heat moldable Ultralon foam in the main fitting zones of the boot (40%) and provides the best fit - either out of the box or in 4 minutes of heating only.

Shell Materials & Design

Shell / Cuff / TonguePU (Polyurethane) / PU / PA (Polyamide)

Cabrio Design ArchitectureDalbello's 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 flex. 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.

Co-Molded, Bi-InjectionBi-Injection technology molecularly bonds 2 different density polymers into one structure; Softer plastic panels over the instep for easy flex and on/off functionality are surrounded by a hard plastic frame for steering and control.

Stance

Low Cuff Hinge PointHigh leverage cuff assembly with hinge points mounted approximately 10 cm lower than standard construction boot designs. The low hinging cuff permits the boot cuff to more easily follow the natural movement of the skier’s legs because it has a longer range of forward and rearward hinging motion.

Adjustable Forward LeanTo change the forward lean angle, Forward Lean control wedges may be inserted between the lower shell and cuff. Wedges are secured to the rear shell with a 3 mm Hex Head Screw. No Insert = 11° / 4 mm Insert = 13° (stock) / 8 mm Insert = 15° (in box).

Twin Axis CantingPermits skiers to align the lateral inclination of the upper cuff to the skier’s leg. Outside and inside hinge cuff alignment using 5mm hex tool, rotate the mechanism clockwise, or counterclockwise, to align boot cuff to desired position.

Buckles

Dynalink Rearfoot RetentionDynalink 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.

Micro-Adjustable Aluminum BucklesA simple turn of a buckle! Micrometer buckles are easy to use for easy fit customization.

Inverted Forefoot BuckleForefoot closure buckle above the instep is inverted and designed to close on the top of a boot shell, not the side. The top closure positioning prevents buckle breakage and bending during rail slides, grinds, falls, and transitions.

Macro Rack Extension FeaturePermits skiers to adapt the boot’s closure circumference to all leg shapes and sizes.

Sole

Dura-Grip™Replaceable, durable high-durometer polyurethane toes & heels for extended boot sole wear.
