One of the MOST popular expert level free-ride boots every year since its release, is the Krypton Pro 2 with the ID Intuition liner. Notice it's called the "2", that is because the shell has been changed last season to fit more anatomically and comfortably around the foot while improving the foot hold and overall fit. This model comes with two different options for boot-boards (firm and anti-shock) and tongues (stiff and medium flex). If you are an aggressive skier who skis hard and fast, gets air and takes names, the KR 2 is going to be one of the best options for you.

This chart provides a safe comfortable size that most all skiers will be able to use. If you are looking for a true skier's performance fit you may want to size down one half to one full size smaller. For most ski boots, the full (.0) size uses the same shell and liner as the half (.5) size (like, 25.0 and 25.5) and will have almost an identical fit.

Description

Details

98mm last: Forefoot width of 98mm for racing performance, not as concerned about comfort, although modern boots do a great job of keeping their performance boots quite comfortable.

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.

130 Flex Rating: Higher than average stiffness means you should be skiing pretty fast to warrant a boot of this flex.

ID Thermo Pro Liner: The most high performance ID wrap liner available made from the high density foam. This liner will result in improved response, more accurate energy transfer to the ski and better overall control.

Interchangeable Boot Boards: This model comes with two boot boards in the box. One is the "landing gear" shock absorbing model for those who like to catch some air. The other is a firm board for less catching air and more high speed cruising.

50mm Power Strap: This power strap is huge! 50mm means a lot of power, and acts like an extra buckle to keep the top of the boot together. The strap helps transmit power to the turn and better control while skiing.

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.

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.

2 Interchangeable Tongues Included: These boots come with 2 tongues that can be swapped out to make the boot stiff (130 flex) or medium flex (110ish). Just another feature that allows for maximum custom fit and performance.

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.

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. To get the most out of the liner, we suggest getting them heat molded at a local boot fitting shop, or by viewing the instructions on the 'Videos' tab on this page. 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.

Perform well, but much stiffer than expectedReview by Hardpack
Rating
First of all, be aware these are the 2013–2014 boots. I called before I purchased them and was told they were probably that year, so I knew what I was getting as far as model year. Although I bought these boots in November of last year, due to the unusual warmth in the East, I was not able to actually try them on the snow until recently. I previously owed a pair of Dalbello Cross-something boots, which I tried on (among many other boots) and purchased at a bricks and mortar ski shop which sadly no longer exists. Therefore, I was fairly confident the Krypton Pro would fit my foot. Well, it does pretty much, but the shell and liner are MUCH stiffer than anything I've ever skied. I am not a racer, nor have I ever been, but I have been skiing for 50 years and have owned many pairs of boots over the years. I knew that the intuition pro ID liner was supposed be stiffer than the next model down, but I never expected it to be that hard. After doing a considerable amount of research and viewing the video on level 9, I elected to try the convection oven methods of heating and molding, then spot mold with the rice bag, and hot water in a bag. Although the liners soften up when heated, when they cooled off they were very firm to me. I called level 9 to ask about the stiffness. The fellow on the other end of the line asked how I had them heated and molded. When I explain how I did it, he seemed surprised. When I asked if there was something wrong with the way I did it, he paused and said in a tone which was perhaps meant to be low-key and "Dude", but came off to me as somewhat patronizing, "Uh, well, there are better ways." If there are better ways short of going to boot fitter, I don't know what they are. I find this somewhat annoying, considering that level 9 sells these boots online and has a video showing you how to do it yourself. If the liners can only be molded in a ski shop by a trained boot fitter, I feel that should be more clearly stated and strongly emphasized. I don't mind paying a trained fitter for his time and expertise, but frankly I don't have the guts to buy boots online and then take them into a shop where I didn't buy them, and there are very few actual ski shops left where I live. So anyway, after skiing in the boots for three days for about two hours at a time, they have broken in slightly, but are still very, very stiff. I have tried different socks, and found a medium sock works best for me. I have also found that buckling them very tightly when I put them on and then backing off helps. The boots tend to feel better after about an hour, but still are tight in the ankles. They perform well and give me good control on Eastern hardpack. Now that I know better, I wish I had saved money and bought the boots with softer liner. I got the boots for an excellent price, so I will chalk it up as a learning experience. (Posted on 1/19/2016)
