Pros: no overlap, adjustable flex, Intuition liner
I skied Tecnica Diablo Pros for 5 seasons and there were several things I disliked about them. The first is that they had too much forward lean and were also too stiff for me. I could flex them if they were really warm but couldn't flex them while skiing, something noted by three different PSIA examiners. Also on very cold days I would often have blood on my instep after removing them. After 4 years I had to replace the liners to get through the season and discovered Intuition liners and was able to stop using my Hotronic heaters. I decided that my next boots would be either Dalbello Krypton series or Full Tilts, but only with an Intuition liner. While I am still figuring out exactly how to buckle these I am really pleased. The forward lean is just right and at the lowest setting, 90, I can flex these boots indoors or out. The fit of the Intuition liner needs to be tweaked a bit but I have several days of skiing on these so far and they have been great. I have all the control I need, they are comfortable and my feet do not get cold. The added bonus is that, even on the coldest days, I will not rip the skin off my instep when removing them because the lower shell doesn't overlap. I am now sold on the 3-piece boot design and cannot imagine ever going back to 2-piece boot.
