90-120 Progressive Flex Rating: These are stiff boots that feel even stiffer as you flex them forward. When skied aggressively (leaning forward, going fast, etc), these will respond like a 120 flex boot, but when you're skiing casually they will feel a bit softer--but still pretty stiff though.
Target Skier: Advanced to Expert: These boots are stiff enough and performance oriented enough, that we would recommend them to advanced skiers who will be aggressively skiing the whole mountain. Beginners should look elsewhere!
Cabrio Design: Dalbello's critically acclaimed 3-piece design is the cornerstone to their freestyle performance lineup. Cabrio boots secure the foot and lower leg in a comfortable way, with a smooth and progressive forward flex. Cabrio boots are great for helping fight against shin bang, and are easier to put on and take off than comparable (high performance, non-cabrio) boots.
Micro-adjustable aluminum buckles: These aluminum buckles can be moved to adjust for size, so if the default position of the buckle and the teeth is too wide or too narrow, you can move it until it fits.
35mm strap: Wider than average strap at the top of the boot to help keep the boot together and to give good performance while skiing.
TRUFIT Sport Custom-fit Liner: Dalbello's high end boots all have a variation of the TRUFIT custom moldable liner. The TRUFIT Sport is the most generous fitting of this family of liners, with a wide instep and some fuzzy faux fur inner lining.
Double Canting: Two adjustment bolts, one each side of the ankle, allow for maximum adjustment for leg/knee alignment problems. The canting helps the skis stay flat on the ground while you are still bow-legged or knock-kneed.
Shock Absorber Cuff: The cuff of this boot has a shock absorbing insert. It is common for boots to have a heel shock absorber, but cuff absorbers are pretty rare. Cuff shock absorbers indicate one thing above others: You are currently looking at a freeride/park boot.
Dynalink by Dalbello: The middle buckle Dynalink boots is an extra big instep closure band that pulls the heel back into the heel pocket. Where some buckles pull your foot towards the footboard of the boot, boots with Dynalink pull your foot towards the heel of the boot. This is nice because it often means you can get an tight fit without constantly banging your toes against the end of the shell.
Dalbello Owner's Manual: This may seem trivial, but Dalbello boots come with the most thorough owner's manual that we've ever seen. They walk you through any and all of the adjustments that each particular boot can make. Thumbs up for the great info, Dalbello!
