Dalbello

Used Dalbello Lotus Womens Ski Boots

  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Age Group: Adult
    Type: Downhill


    The Dalbello Krypton Lotus is a progressive flex ladies boot made for mildly aggressive skiers of all types. The customer intended here are female freeriders who enjoy anything from the cruising groomers, the terrain park or even venturing into the sidecountry. When Dalbello went to make the lady Lotuses, they did not skimp on the features...at all, this is a full fledged Krypton 2 Rampage with a more feminine purple graphic and color scheme. Highly recommended for progressing intermediate freerider all the way up to expert skiers.

    98mm last: Forefoot width of 98mm for racing performance, not as concerned about comfort, although modern boots do a great job of keeping their performance boots quite comfortable.

    85 Flex Rating: A flex of 85 is moderately stiff for an adult, and very stiff/advanced for a youth. Boots of this flex are responsive enough for aggressive skiing but should still fit pretty comfy. Boots of this nature usually make good park/powder boots because they are more forgiving when landing jumps than a race boot, but they are responsive enough not to melt when you're skiing hard.

    Cabrio Design: Dalbello's critically acclaimed 3-piece design is the cornerstone to their freestyle performance lineup. Cabrio boots secure the foot and lower leg in a comfortable way, with a smooth and progressive forward flex. Cabrio boots are great for helping fight against shin bang, and are easier to put on and take off than comparable (high performance, non-cabrio) boots.

    30mm Power Strap: A velcro strap, 30mm in height, acts as an extra buckle to keep the top of the boot together. The 30mm straps are good for recreational skiers or junior racers.

    Tongue Pull: A loop of fabric at the top of the tongue helps in putting on and removing the boots. Pull it forward and to the side and your foot should slide right in.

    Micro-adjustable aluminum buckles: These aluminum buckles can be moved to adjust for size, so if the default position of the buckle and the teeth is too wide or too narrow, you can move it until it fits.

    Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads: This is a must-have for skiers that don't live in ski in/ski out condos. When your ski tech tells you that you have to buy new boots because the soles are worn down too much, just laugh at him and tell him to order you a new set of sole plates.

    Single Canting: One adjustment bolt on the outside of the ankle helps compensate for bow-legs or knock-knees. This tilts the cuff of the boot left or right while keeping the base of the skis flat on the snow.

    Contour 4 Fit Technology: The shell of the boot is designed to be more anatomically correct than any other. Four parts of the foot are crucial in ensuring a close fitting but comfortable boot. The toes, ankles, heel and width of the boot are shaped in a more natural, ergonomic way.

    Forward Lean Adjust: The forward pitch or angle can be adjusted on this boot to obtain a more aggressive stance for attacking the hill.

    Adjustable flex: The flex setting of this boot can be toggled between two settings: the higher is stiffer and better performance, while the lower setting is softer and more comfortable.

    TRUFIT Sport Custom-fit Liner: Dalbello's high end boots all have a variation of the TRUFIT custom moldable liner. The TRUFIT Sport is the most generous fitting of this family of liners, with a wide instep and some fuzzy faux fur inner lining.

    Dynalink by Dalbello: The middle buckle Dynalink boots is an extra big instep closure band that pulls the heel back into the heel pocket. Where some buckles pull your foot towards the footboard of the boot, boots with Dynalink pull your foot towards the heel of the boot. This is nice because it often means you can get an tight fit without constantly banging your toes against the end of the shell.

  • What size of ski boots should I buy?

    Boots that fit well are a key part of good ski setup. Selecting a proper size is essential for both comfort and performance. Listed below are some helpful tips and a conversion chart to get you started with selecting your size.

     

    How do I measure my foot?

    The easiest method of measuring is to lay a piece of paper or cardboard down on the ground in a flat, level, area. While standing, place your foot on top of the paper and trace the outside of your foot. You can then measure the tracing from the back of the heel to the longest part of the toe. We recommend measuring in centimeters for the most accurate measurement however, if you need to measure in inches you can convert to centimeters by multiplying your measurement by 2.54.

     

    How do I choose the right size?

    If your centimeter measurement falls between two sizes round up to the closest mondopoint size. For example a 26.73cm would round up to a 27.0 mondopoint or a 26.32 would round up to a 26.5 mondopoint. We do NOT recommend using the conversion chart based on street shoe size. Due to the inconsistent sizing of shoe manufacturers this is not an accurate method of sizing and should only be used if absolutely necessary.

    Recreational Fit: For skiers that are more conservative on the slopes or don't ski many days per year and are looking for a spacious fit to maximize comfort. It is generally best to choose a size slightly above your mondopoint measurement. We do not recommend choosing a size that is more than one size above your mondopoint measurement.
    Performance Fit: For skiers that ski fast and aggressive on a variety of steep, technical, terrain. If you are looking for the most power transfer and want the best performance with a tight, precise fit. It is generally best to select right at your mondopoint measurement or slightly below.

    Unfortunately ski boots will never be as comfortable or fit the same as a street shoe no matter how well they fit simply due to the materials they are made of and how they are manufactured. Remember that the conversion chart is approximate and this information is only meant to be a starting point. With slight variances from one boot model to another and every persons foot being unique we cannot guarantee that choosing a size solely based on this guide will result in a perfectly fit boot.
