Dalbello Scorpion 105 W (2012)
Would you name a boot for wimps the Scorpion? No, you would not. A woman's boot named after a scary arachnid is intended to sting its turns, and that is what this boot does. Its forward lean is aggressive, its shell is solid, and its fit is on the snug side for the category—so it didn't let our testers down at any speed. The Scorpion means business and so should you, though testers agree it is a pretty blue. Notes: lower height, overlap polyether shell with replaceable soles maximizes energy transmission and calf comfort, contour 4 fit concept shell shape offers anatomic shaping at side of first and fifth metatarsal heads, at navicular and back of heel, full length elastomer bootboard dampens vibration , 43 mm FIS height approved, removable/adjustable rear spoiler allows fore-aft stance tweaks.
