krypton love?Not wanting to draw fire here, but, Since there has been so many positives and accolades put on this boot as of late, I thought I'd throw my research into the mix so there is some balance... (we can't agree on everything, right?)
I am due for new boots, and post and read at epic a bit. with all this amazing flexon/krypton action, the FT coming out and making me think i can have a light AT/resort combo boot, I was intrigued. I tried them all, compared them to my racerpros,and was close to buying a pair. all the research is so positive,
I talked to the 2 people whose boot opinions I respect the most. One kept the gloves on and said, "Be sure to ski it first. I couldn't make the thing work and can't figure out what the internet hoopla is about". The other took the gloves off and said, " as long as your don't really want to edge, they are great". He also mentioned that the dalbello tech guy he would have to tweak his ski technique and become a "knee" skier to make it work. (by the way, i don't have an ax to grind. the dalbello rep is great guy and has hooked me up w/ skis in the past, I hope he gets lots of business)
so, I don't this to be a big deal. I just think there needs to be something to make people think twice before jumping into this based on this internet krypton love.
One of the guys I quoted is actually getting me a boot to demo, even though I've pretty much decided that it's not for me (as a highly ankle oriented skier). He is a dalbello dealer who only sells the proton, but wanted me to ski the krypton for another impression from an overly picky sensation intensive skier. So I will give a review at that time.
Once again, I just wanted to let people know what my research has turned up so they have more data...
