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 that liner and can't say enough good things about it,it offers the heel hold security that the Intuition didn't. Dalbello would cringe I'm sure because the Intuition liner is a key selling point for these boots. As for as the boots go they offer adjustment for flex with a quick change (shim?) and forward lean as well as different boot boards and tongues. I find the real key feature of the boot is the second buckle,you can cinch it down for absolute power and not crush your instep or you can run it looser for a more forgiving feeling,they claim you can also change the flex by changing out the tongue,I've run the #10 tongue (I think) and I found it to do everything I want. If you don't like bright lime green go with the Krypton Cross it's a more subdued color they say it's a bit more forgiving (flex and fit wise) ,the boots IMO are pretty much the same boot with a different color option. Oh and one more thing about the Intuition liner,if you're genetically handicapped and have skinny calf muscles you might try the other liner.
