Krypton Boots: ID Liner or Not

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What's the difference between the two different liners? Particularly between the Krypton Pro and the Pro ID.

Thanks

The "Pro" is the boot. The ID is the liner, it is the Intuition/Dalbello custom molded liner. It is THE way to go.

i had a shop tell me the "ceramics" can break down after a few times under the heater? first off, ceramics??? secondly, once these things are formed, how many times would you want to re-heat them to re-form them.

btw: they are the most comfortable boots i've ever tried on. the id liners are as light as any liner i've ever pulled out of a boot. nice boot.

I saw that liner when I was in Footloose in Mammoth . Guy next to me was having his Krypton Pros worked on. Has the gold trim right? Nice looking liner.

I have the Pro with the ID liner as well.

It fits me, and I like it!

Yeah, the gold thread + black cover scheme makes it really easy to see where you've stuffed up the overlap direction.

What's with the short lasting, though?

Is the stitching just for bootfitter ease when doing the first mould?

I have The Krypton Storm with the Intuition ID liner. I've heated mine 3 times and it's the best fit and coziest boot I've ever had on my feet

I know you aren't supposed to heat these in the oven, but the guns instead. Maybe that is what the shop was telling you about the ceramics breaking down.

Maybe I should try a baking sheet instead.

Why have you reheated them? Is this a seasonal thing; something you do at the beginning of the season?

Trek was playing with different socks and toe cap configurations.

I have been using thermo liners for 12 years now, you can go 3-4 years without a re mold.

Thanks, this has been helpful.

Just a couple more questions.

How long can these liners last (40 days skiing a year)?

How long should these liners be warmed up in a shop and how long do you mold these for?

40 days/season is not an issue.

The shop will mold them for about 20 min. These liners do NOT get molded in an oven but with a special blower.

Yea, the boots were new to me, and I had so many different opinions expressed on how "I would like my fit". I started off with a performance fit and no extra toe room. Then had them reheated with new footbeds. After skiing a week in them I decided to get them reheated to make a tad more room for my toes. PERFECTION!!!

PS, go for the neoprene toe caps when you have them fitted. HUGE difference when you have happy toes.

Is there any difference between the ID liners on the Krypton Pro and Cross??

Thanks

their website mentions the Pro with a Gold ID liner and Cross with Silver ID liner. i have no idea if there is a material or technical difference. the description appears to be the same.

The gold is a bit beefier of a liner. Both will be just as warm and fit the same.

Maybe the regular liners can be worked on with a heat gun, but the higher density race liners are supposed to be heated in a small convection oven.

Are there any problems with putting a gold liner in a cross shell?

Not at all.
