Cabrio Design: The Cabrio design is a 3 piece construction - 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.
Low Cuff Hinge Point: The LOW HINGING CUFF permits the boot cuff to more easily follow the natural anatomic movement of the skier's legs because it has a longer range of forward and rearward hinging motion. For more efficient walking and gliding. Increased power and control with less energy.
Kinetic Response Tongue: The highly resilient polyamide flex ribbed tongue is available in three different kind of flex-stiffness (stiff, medium and soft). All of them stay in permanent contact with the leg and improve the responsiveness and control of the boots behavior. The tongue can be easily interchanged in between the following stiffness-variables:
Dynalink Heel Retention System: The Dynalink heel retention is an independently functioning heel / instep closure assembly which minimizes foot sliding, heel lift and boot shell distortion during the flex effectively.
Twin Axis Canting: To align lateral inclination of cuff to skier's lower leg.
Micro-Adjustable Aluminum Buckles:A simple turn of a buckle! Micrometer buckles are easy to use for easy fit customization
Macro Rack Extension Feature: Permits skiers to adapt the boot's closure circumference to all leg shapes and sizes.
Fit For Women: Dalbello's Women's ski-boot line is developed by women. Woman technicians, designers and members of the Dalbello Freeski team are involved with product engineering and design. The finest Italian design technology assures the best dedicated women's product in the world.
Quick Removable Tongue
Range of motion of the cuff 48 Degrees
GripWalk:GripWalk contains of a new co-polymer sole with rocker profile. The convex shape and ribbed tread of the rubber add a lot of walking comfort and provide a much better grip. GripWalk soles are the perfect tuning parts designed for 90% of the Dalbello boot collection and don't require any height adjustment at GripWalk bindings.
Contour 4: Contour 4 creates subtle "comfort zones" at 4 critical fit points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, & navicular. Relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at these 4 points provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.
Touring norm with tech insert: By changing the rockered soles to the interchangeable alpine soles the boots fit in all alpine bindings as well but are not certified ISO 5355.
Ski & hike mechanism: As the burly cuff lock mechanism frees the upper cuff from the lower shell a long range of motion for functional hiking and climbing is guaranteed. Due to the unique Cabrio design it doesn't contain any compromises on the skiing performance.
IF Air/IF Air Plus: Being breathable and warm at the same time are the outstanding benefits of the IF AIR liner. Its medium density EVA foam wraps the foot instantly and can be fitted 80% to the feet's specific needs. Thanks to its flexible zones in the back part and the quick adjustable laces, the IF AIR is used especially in the Lupo line to support the skier during the hike up and the joyful run down.
Reduced Volume Fitting Lasts: The unique, comfortable fit and size profile is optimized for a women's foot characteristics. Due to a narrow heel- and wider forefoot part, the women boots support a female skier in the best way by transmitting the power directly and cushioning the foot all day long.
Replacement Toe / Heel Protector: Patented Toe-Heel inserts for lighter, more durable ski-boots. High density special compound insert provide outstanding durability in any heavy usage.
100 Flex Index
This is my third touring boot and I have to say, they are insanely comfortable. I've tried ultra-light boots and they are great for the climb but don't have very good performance for skiing down. The Lupo AX 105 is the perfect in-between, they are lightweight but still have the stiffness and performance you want for ripping down. I am a big fan of the removable tongue which gives you ample mobility for climbing and also really like the easy pull tightener on the liner that provides a secure fit. The liner is also super warm and cushy in all the right places. A great touring boot that great on both the climb and descent!
