100 Flex Rating: This boot is pretty stiff, but not insanely stiff. A boot of this level is pretty good for upper-intermediate to expert level weekend warrior that is looking for something stiff enough to provide high-end response, while being wearable for an entire day of skiing.
98mm last: Forefoot width of 98mm offers an expertly performing low-volume fit. Boots of this last width can run the gamut from very tight fitting to reasonably comfortable, but they will all fit much much tighter than a rental or intermediate boot.
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.
ID Thermo Intution Liners: ID Thermo liners are the lightest, warmest, and easiest Total Custom Fit inner boots in the world. They are made from 100% Custom Heat Mold-able Ultralon EVA Foam (the good stuff). This liner will improve the response of the boot, transfer energy to the ski more effectively and provide for much better control. Bottom line is these liners are basically THE best you can find.
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.
40mm strap: Super wide strap found on high performance boots. The extra width spreads out the force while skiing and reduces the pressure point on the upper shin.
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.
Contour 4 Fit Technology: The shell of the boot is designed to be more anatomically correct than any other. Four parts of the foot are crucial in ensuring a close fitting but comfortable boot. The toes, ankles, heel and width of the boot are shaped in a more natural, ergonomic way.
Intuition Liner Included: This boot comes with a custom liner that can be heat molded to the exact shape of your foot. Even if it isn't heat molded, with a couple days of skiing, it will start to quickly take shape to the contours of the skier's feet. Out of the box these will be the best fitting most comfortable boots you have used but to get the most out of the liner you can get them heat molded at a local boot fitting shop. The other great benefit of the Intuition liners is the weight savings over the heavy plastic liners found in comparable boots. Less weight=less fatigue=more skiing!
In a few years when you may outgrow the boot you can take this liner to your new high end boot. It is the best liner in the business and people pay boot fitters gobs of money to get them in their boots.

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!
