So I’m thinking of upgrading my boots, I currently have Dalbello Proton’s at a 90 Flex and they are about 5 years old now and I’m looking for a much more advanced boot. I’m searching for a boot in the 120 Flex range without giving up the comfort ( I ski from open till close when I ski so I need comfort) . I ski mainly steeps, trees and bumps so I need a responsive boot.
I looked around and saw boots with this new 2 buckle system and 3 buckle system, my main question is do we loose any performance with these buckle systems ?
I’m leaning towards the Dalbello Virus , Dalbello Krypton, or the Atomic Live Fit 120. I’ll obviously demo these and try them all on, but I wanted to ask the “pros” to see if I’m thinking in the right direction.. the review section has mix to no comments on these models so I wanted to start a post to clearify.
