Did I see Tanner Hall is on the Krypton?

post #1 of 25

I am pretty sure I saw him in the Dalbelo Krypton in Freeskier Mag?

Can anyone confirm this?

To answer your question, a lot of people give a sh!t. Whether you do or not doesn't matter. I don't because I'm not a park skier (or punk as i guess you call them), but I'd be willing to bet that just as many people (if not more) care what boots Tanner wears than what skis Bode is on.

I don't know how old you are but you should probably try and act a little more mature and just answer the guy's question.

Woah there dude, don't assume more than you read from a post. I didn't knock a group of skiers, or social class, type of skiing or anything else. You are making WAY more assumptions than you know anything about. The kid is a punk for being a total as@h*le and having a huge ego. That's all. Perhaps maturity is in the eye of the beholder, or is that too presumptous?

Kent Kreitler signed with Dalbello/Blizzard this week.

He turned down bigger manufacturers because D/B offered him a team manager/product development role as well...

Rumors from Andover are that they're ready to sign another top freeskier.

Get ready for a big mountain twin Kreitler signature model.

Doesn't he get paid to wear those boots? I bet he sees plenty of the boot fitter who represents Dalbello.

It's a fine boot. But as you know, most fitters use the manufacturer that fits rather than the brand that Tanner wears.

Ya - I guess this thread is not really what I expected. I was more pointing out the fact that more and more pro skiers are discovering how good Dalbello boots are. Glen Plake approached Dalbello. Tanner Hall approached Dalbello also. Now Kent Krietler is on them and so is Shane McConkey and Kim Reichhelm. (I saw the new poster with the names on them)

So the point was less about Tanner himself (he is a bit of a punk) but more the fact that it appears Dalbello will finally get the recognition they deserve. I have been a long time fan of their boots - nice to see them on the big stage.

Is Dalbello typically a high volume boot? I'm in Salomons now because of the fit but my wide feet are always interested in what's available in high volume boots.

If you are asking me? I would guess they are a higher volume than the Solomon's but Phil Puglies seems to know the most.

I have always enjoyed the Former Carvex series by Dalbello and now find myself in LOVE with the Krypton. the Krypton definately fits more feet than the Flexon did so it may be worth your while to try them on.

Dalbello is located in NH - I bet you could get your hands on a pair of Kryptons pretty easy (I see you too are in NH - I am in Concord).

I think most people say that the Krypton is a medium fit boot. I think it is more like a low to medium fit.

Salomon lasts like the X-Wave series are medium to large.

This all differs based on the model, year, and your foot.

Dalbellos other boots seem to have really good heal retention even with the stock footbed in them.

Ken Jones in Machester had last years Krypton Pros in a 26.5 for cheap and the liner is brand new. They actually inspect all the liners for their boots and if they find anything wrong like bad stiching or too much material on a seem, they will have them replaced.

I have tried on as many boots as I could recently and ended up getting Atomic M 10s in a 26.5 from a shop in Mass. I liked Ken Jones but didn't feel like driving up to Manchester everytime I needed a tweak.

If you have a normal size heal and a wider forefoot you should check out the Atomic B(Bitech) series.

I have 2 yr old X-Wave 8's that I got at Ken Jones in Nashua and then took to Wilderness House for footbeds and custom work. I like both places. It's getting time to think about new boots, though, and though I'd heard somewhere that Dalbellos might be a possibility. The Salomons do have a heel retention problem and I would love to get something thats got better hold-down. My feet are real wide at the forefoot.

yeah he's taking the plane over there and then he's gonna stand on the sidelines near the "new school" press and brag about how he would wipe everyone off the Hahnenkamm if only they would wake up and see his greatness.

I just called them:

Sizes 26, 26.5, 27, 29

$375

I could have sworn they were cheaper a few weeks ago.
post #23 of 25
PM me with their phone number. Even 375 is a good price.
post #24 of 25
That's a phenomenal price for new Kryptons sold at retail.
