Dalbello 2015 Prime 8 Ski Boots

SKU: 31599
The Dalbello Prime 8 boot will help beginner and intermediate skiers feel right at home on the slopes. This is the same boot as the Prime 6 just with metal buckles instead of plastic. It's comparable to the Aerro series boots, this boot is wide, 105mm in the last, a soft flex and a cozy "SuperComfort" liner. All these features combined make this boot more like a chaise lounge than a school desk chair (which most boots in this category are). Just slip it on, set it, and forget it! You can be in this boot all day long without any discomfort, which is necessary for a good day on the hill. We recommend the Prime 8 for beginner to intermediate skiers looking for a comfortable, durable and most importantly affordable boot.

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

This boot has a 105mm width in the forefoot area, and is one of the widest available for ski boots. This width gives wide-footed skiers a chance to enjoy skiing, instead of cramping up and getting pressure points the whole day. Average width skiers will find that this width is very comfortable and warm.

65 Flex Index: This boot has a flex index of 65, which is best for beginner to intermediate skiers. A boot of this flex will be more comfortable and generally lighterweight than a stiffer boot, but will be less responsive while skiing at high speeds.

Mondo Half and Whole Sizes: There is no fit difference between half and whole mondo sizes. So, a man who wears a size 9 or 9.5 US shoe size can choose a size 27.0 or 27.5. Some of our boots are only available in the half size, don't be alarmed, just remember they are the same size so you can select either one worry free.

Bi component shell: Two different densities of plastic used to keep the boot stiff and able to perform at high speeds, yet softer in specific areas to make them easier to put on and take off.

30mm Power Strap: A velcro strap, 30mm in height, acts as an extra buckle to keep the top of the boot together. The 30mm straps are good for recreational skiers or junior racers.

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.

Supercomfort Liner: Dalbello's Supercomfort liner is super comfortable. It is fairly basic, but thats fine since you will find it in more entry level boots. And also it is super comfortable, did we mention that?

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!
