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 Contour 4 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.

Low Contour Women's Profile CuffDalbello's women's inner boot cuffs are 0.5 cm - 1.5 cm (depending on model) lower that men’s cuffs. Low contour profile geometry cuffs are engineered to close comfortably and easily around a wide variety of women’s lower leg shapes and sizes.

Flex

Flex: 85A slightly softer flex for intermediate to advanced all-mountain skiers.

Adjustable FlexThanks to a modular insert applied between the shell and the cuff, you can decide between 3 different degrees of flexion.

Liner

TruFit Sport Lady LinerThese 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.

Shell Materials

Cabrio Design ArchitectureCabrio 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.

Polyurethane Bi-Injected CuffTwo different density materials fused into one structure to combine power (hard) with comfort and a convenient entry (soft).

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

Stance

Center Balanced "Rocker" StanceFoot 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 Twin Cuff AlignmentPermits 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

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 3mm Hex Head Screw. Two different FL inserts: 4 mm insert = 11° (stock) 8 mm insert = 13° (in box)

Buckles

3 F16 Aluminum Micro-Adjustable Buckles (1 Inverted)Forefoot closure buckle above the instep is inverted and designed to close on the top of the boot shell, not on the side. The top closure positioning prevents buckle breakage and bending during rail slides, grinds, falls, and transitions.

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.
