2-Piece Shell Boots with Progressive Dalebello Flex?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I love the adjust-ability and progressive flex of my Krypton Pros, but foot issues make fitting a 3-piece shell tough for me.  Are their any "traditional" boots that have the sweet flex of the Dalebellos with flex adjustment options?  My limited experience with regular boots over the last 10 years has left me with the impression that they fit and ski great, but give almost no feel of what is going on.  They tend to have an on/off feel that gives instant response and skis well, but I would rather sacrifice some of that for a more controlled and adjustable progressive flex.  Are there any good top of the line boot options out there?

that 3prt feel is hard to get in a 2 prt shell.  Odds are you will have to go to a softer flex and see how that feels.   I dont think that 3 prt boots are anything magic, and the softer feel at the start of the flex is nice to some and bad for others...   Odds are you will get use to either...

 

I would put fit, over flex. so get what fits you best, and make the flex work after...

My problem is that I really, really prefer the flex of a 3-piece shell, but they present a fit issue for me that is much more difficult to resovle than with a 2-piece shell.  I was hoping that the some of the newer boots might have come to a point of having a more adjustable progressive flex.

try some 2 prt boots to find one that flexes right for you, or find a boot fitter for work on the 3 prt shells.

 

some other newer 3 prt shells now too    Nordica has a bunch

Thanks, I was not aware of the Nordica Firearrow 3-piece boots.  Can you tell me if they are significantly different than the Dalebellos?

best to go try them on and see how they fit and feel for you.

 

like ANY boot,  they work for some people and not for others...
