Lange RX 130 LV vs. Dalbello Krypton (2011 model)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

After a long journey of trying on different boots, I've realized I need a narrow last (~98mm) and something stiff.  From all the different boots I've tried on these two have risen to the top of the list.  The Krypton's were last year's model with the Intuition liner.  The RX's are this year's model.

 

I'm looking to further educate myself on the pros and cons of these boots and any additional insight I can gather to futher my boot education.

 

It might help to know that I have a narrow foot and a extremely high arch with slender calves (size 28.5 in both boots).

This is a difficult question actually because this is the part of fitting and selection that must be left to you because it is all about boot feel and your preferences.  The design differences mean the boots flex differently.  Do you prefer one?  Some skiers have problems getting into boots and the Krypton is easier to get on as well the Intuition liner is warmer than the Lange liner.  I would say the Krypton is more difficult to work in the ankle area if necessary for your fit.

 

Other than that they are both good but different boots.

The fit of both felt fine.  No pressure points along the foot/ankle that would cause me any concern.  Given that the liners are different and I'm not familiar with the wrap-style nor any of the other Intuition products, are there any points of caution I should know around this liner style/company?

 

As for flex I liked how the Krypton's felt like there was a more sublte and graduated feel as I flexed the boot.  The Langes felt like it has a more "on-off" feel; you either were flexing the boot or you weren't...very black and white to what I felt.  Not sure if this is how others might describe their experiences, but that was my take.

sounds about right for a 2 prt boot vs a 3 prt boot.   both work, just work different.
