Dalbello Krypton Pro (2010)
This three-piece boot maintains near-constant flex pressure at any flex angle. Its lateral stiffness attunes it to the ski’s middle third—so it pairs nicely with rockered skis—and enhances edge-to-edge quickness on skinnier skis. PLUS: Really easy to achieve a good fit quickly—especially if you opt for the heat-moldable liner. MINUS: That constant flex pressure can be misunderstood as softness by skiers accustomed to overlap designs.
