Dalbello Viper 12 (2012)
Tax refund not exactly what you were hoping for? The Viper 12, cousin of the Scorpion (see Narrow), packs huge bang for the buck. Testers said that with the standard Trufit liner, the feel is upright and solid—an all mountain cruiser/bruiser for big tall dudes. For an extra $50, the Pro-Fit I.D. liner (made by Intuition) makes the boot softer, lighter and more forward leaning. Notes: 3D Power Frame tri-injection construction combines edge power with ease on and off, contour 4 fit concept shell shape offers anatomic shaping at side of first and fifth metatarsal heads, at navicular and back of heel, height adjustable rear spoiler allows for fine-tuning calf fit.
