Dalbello 07/08 Website just activated - sweet!!!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
As per the subject - more detailed than last years. Il Moro is same grade plastic as Krypton but they have somehow made it transluscent. Last for boots listed (98mm for Krypton - so not narrow but not wide either).

So excited - new intuitions (Alpine Power Wraps) for my Krypton Crosses, Il Moros on order (and Intuition Alpine Power Wraps as I like the firmer liner). Cannot wait for the 07/08 North Amercian season.

CEM Touchy aren't we - in case you haven't read any other threads there is quite a bit of interest in boots, especially Krypton or anything that is a bit different from a 4 buckle model. This is the section about boots. If it is in the wrong place then one of the mods can move it.

In looking at the KryzmaID, I thought they would have changed the toe buckle as they did on the Il'moro. Not a deciding factor on a purchase, but something I had thought they'd implement.

It is in the wrong place . I moved it over to Ski Gear Discussions. If you had a specific question on the fit of a Krypton and you wanted help, Ask the Boot Guy would be the place.

...and keep in mind that in Ask the Boot Guy, no one can respond to a thread other than the thread starter and the registered EpicSki Boot Specialists.

What about that other boot that is based on the old Raichle flex model that just came out?

And I just read something about a new Salomon that has a flex in the forefoot, too (like webbing).

Those are "Full Tilt", not based on on Flexons...are old Flexons with new and improved colors and a thermo liner. IMHO, if you want a Flexon, still a good boot, you can still find them on Ebay for less than $100.00. If someone needs 301's PM me, I have a "few" pair, but the Krypton is a much better boot than the FT is, especially getting into a wider ski.

Some more Krypton questions

Why is the Krypton better than the improved Full Tilt flexon?

I am interested in both but do not really want to spend $600 on an experiment. I have the Krypton Cross ID and my only observation is why bother with the medium density (silver) foam liner, but I guess that the answer from Dalbello would be if you want a firmer boot buy the Pro (wasn't avail when I was shopping for a closer fitting boot).

Is the Gold liner thinner than the Silver liner? I am wondering if I will be the same size in the Pro as I am in the Cross (needed some grinding but only 1mm here and there).

Is the Pro ID (Gold) liner as firm as Intuition's Alpine Custom Power Wrap liner?

Finally if I am getting a new Intuition liner (model listed above) for my Cross boots should I get the Pro or try the Il Moro as my new boot for this season.

for those who care / didn't know......dalbello widened the toebox on the krypton models.....they were very cramped up at the front, i shell fit barefoot side to side a 2006 and a 2008 model and felt the difference...... boot feels the same, just no need to have the toe box stretched like old days for cramped toes...

Really? That's great news (if true). Can anyone else confirm?

Not true. The same. Just played with my Il Moro's, sweet.

^Gotcha. I suppose they run a tad wider than Full Tilts though....I have an approx 100mm wide forefoot (give or take a mm), so should be able to get them to work. I had an old pair of Flexon Comp Slaloms (not real flexons) that fit and skied great (a little low on the instep, but worked). I think those were a tad wider than regular flexons, so I'm hoping the Krypton will work for me. I'm tired of the heel/ankle slop in my x-waves...

I have a question about the Il'moro:

Is it possible that there will be a womans version of it in the future?
Is there a reason to have a women's version?

Just as a point of reference, I know there are women who can use a high performance boot to its potential, but I'm not sure how much of a market there is for that.

I am of the understanding that the Kryzma is stiffer than the Storm, and yet there are more varieties of stiffness/options for the men's line.
Am I wrong?

The Il Moro goes down to a 24.0 I think with the higher design of the cuff, it won't be a boot for the "typical" woman's foot/leg. Will there be one in the future? Maybe

Krypton has 98mm last so a bit of punching or grinding should see you snug and skiing well
