Hi everyone, I know that Dalbello has been making the Krypton series for some time though, I was wondering if ther have been any changes made this year that make this years boot differ from last years, thanks

First of all the Krypton is not a single boot, there are several boots in that series, all 3-buckle 3-piece shell boots; Pro, Cross, Rampage, and Il Moro and those are just the men's boots.  Each of those come in two flavors, depending on whether you want a wrap style Intuition liner or a standard tongue style liner.  All of these look a bit different than they did last year, but there is no real difference.

For the last 11 years I have been wearing Dalbellos.  It's my opinion that they are hands down the best boot you can buy.  When I need a new boot I don't even think about it.  I go get fully custom fit dalbellos and adjust the forward lean all the way forward and adjust the stiffness to the max and that's it.  They're awesome.

What happens if dalbello suddenly made the stiffest setting, sittfer? would you run it stiffer or would you stay right where your at? What if they gave the furtherest forward lean more forward adjustment range would you run more forward lean or just keep it where your at?

With any new boot, I'd start with the stiffest and most forward settings, and then if it felt weird because it was too much I might dial it back a bit.  To date, so far I haven't ever wanted anything less stiff or less forward. 

 

If I could stiffen the boots I have now even more I probably would but I don't think it could be a big difference (I don't think they could be much stiffer).  If I could increase the forward lean on the boot I have now, I'm less sure about it.  I would try it though and see how it felt.  I like a lot of forward lean for mogul skiing.

 

Dalbello already is adjustable through a nice wide range of settings for stiffness and lean.  I have never yet thought that there needs to be more options.  So to answer your question, I am really happy with my current settings (which are the stiffest and most forward settings), but if there were even more options I would at least try it.  It might be good, but I would have to try it first before I could really say.

I have the pro and the cross with wrap liners, I also have to fit flat B width feet and I love these boots. All day comfort and support without the pain.


three of my skiing buds moved to these boots for this season-all 3 moved from Lange's. Really hope they like them as much as I do.
