Dalbello Krypton Pro I.D. Ski Boot Reviews

Positive Reviews


Tails from the Krypt


Cons: ID Gold, too narrow

 If you know my history, you know my thought on this boot. Simply, it is a Flexon on steroids. "They" say that you cannot carve in this boot, I disagree, in fact I can carve better in this boot than a traditional overlap. This boot is the Mac of ski boots, it does 90% of what a traditional boot dies, but it is the other 10% that separates the Krypton from the pack. 

Dalbello Krypton ski boots better than most

I ski around 100 days per season - have been on these boots for 1.5 seasons.  Once I got the fit right, they skied great.  Read some of the critiques with interest.  Perhaps it's because I only weigh 160 lb. that I disagree with some of the negative comments.  Coming off 8 years on the Head World Cup Comp boot, I was used to stiff - so a soft flex boot took some getting used to.  Once I got away from over-skiing the boot by driving hard into the tongue, it performed as well as any boot I have had - I have over 140 days on the boot and it hasn't packed out yet.  I also have skinny feet, and it's a good fit - in fact I had to punch the toe box quite a bit to get the right fit.  For a good...

Raichle Flexon Comp vs Krypton Pro


Pros: Fast, Responsive, Absorbing, All mountain, warm, easy in and out

Cons: TBD

First, I am 60. I ski at Snowbird an average of 60 days/year-I am retired. I try to ski almost everything except for hiking out on Baldy. I skied Raichle Flexon Comps 9.5 for about 15 years.  The last few years I skied them with zipfit liners which greatly improved the fit and control. 6 years ago I switched to the Lange Freeride 120s.  Within a few days of skiing them, I realized the benefits of the overlap design.  I still really enjoy them but they weren't as good as the Raichles in the bumps. Yesterday, I bought the Krypton Pro IDs.  I must say the baked liner made the fit truly perfect for my long narrow flat foot.  I am hoping the excellent fit means great skiing all over the...

Negative Reviews


Too Soft


Pros: Comfortable, Warm, AT use

Cons: Flex index, Last, Durability, Buckles

Great Boots!.....for about 60 days maybe.  I put an intuition liner in and footbeds and the fit was nice for my super skinny feet, but they packed out quickly.  I also put all the stiffest flex pieces in the boot and it was still very soft.  The flex index cannot be correct (ie. 100-150).  Top flex is maybe 100, new and cold.  I think they are an ok boot for an intermediate skier, or lighter expert, but if you are over 160 # and agressive you will CRUSH this boot.  I use them for AT now.  They are super warm and comfortable.  These are NOT a narrow last boot however people may say it is.  The last is 98 mm which is okay, but no 95.  Also, I found the boot to not be as atomically correct...

Krypton Pro I.D


Pros: Fits Well, Comfortable

Cons: Will not last....Not for Advanced/Expert skiers

I did 47 days in a row in this Boot, by day 30 I had packed out the intuition liner. So I started to grab the boot with my toes!!!!! My last boot was a Tecnica Diablo Magnesium they lasted 41/2 years and that was skiing in Canada and Australia so over 250 days!!!! Do I do believe these Dalbello Krypton boots are for intermediate skiers only if that! The problem with this boot is when it worked it was just brilliant, the feel and control and the forward flex..all the things you want from a boot. Just not 30 days of it! I emailed Dalbello and just said..not alot actually. "40 days is 4 years skiing for some people" Not advanced skiers I know..  Lift your game Dalbello.   Would I...

Not For Chicken Feet


Pros: Warm, upright, green

Cons: Unanatomic, flimsy stock liner, green

I have to completely agree with Edgeski's observations. I bought these boots about two years ago. Good shell fit so I bought them. But the stock liner proved quite flimsy and ineffective in holding down my ankle and heel. So I spent more money to get an Intuition liner. My experience with this boot leads me to wonder what foot they designed it for. Even with the Intuition (and three cooks and other mods), the boot would not hold my heel or ankle. But the toe box is narrow, causing major toe crunch. Granted, I do have bony, low volume feet. And so, if you do to, walk away from this boot.  I just bought a pair of Nordica Doberman Pro 130's. It is a wonderful fit for feet like mine. Firm and...

2009 Dalbello Krypton Pro ID


Pros: Adjustability,versatility,entry and exit

Cons: None so far

E-Bay purchase,based on skiing the last half of the season on the Krypton Cross ID. I wanted a 2nd pair of these boots (boot hoarding maybe?) well anyway.  These boots are a pleasure to get on and off,none of that instep crushing lower shell entry stuff.  The boots are well made and do feel a little different that the standard 4 buckle boot. They claim a 98mm last and in a 28.5 the BSL runs 326mm, this a narrow last but it's not that narrow for my A-B width size 12 foot.  I did change out the Intuition Liners,they are well preforming and very foot friendly however I wanted more heel hold without going down another shell size. So I put in a Zip fit liner. I've reviewed...
