Dalbello

Used Dalbello Raya 9 Womens Ski Boots

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


    Women-specific fit is designed for your foot and calf; fabrics and extra insulation are selected for their softness and warmth
    Ski easier, ski longer—the structural materials are lighter and more flexible than those used in men's boots
    Offering a precise foothold and a progressive flex as you bend your knees into the turn, the Raya 9 boots feature a 3-piece shell design that optimizes responsiveness
    Separate cuff, shell and tongue sections are joined together to create a smooth forward flex with rigid lateral and rearward support
    Lady fit liners improve foothold on women's feet with tapered heels, roomy forefeet, high insteps and low-profile cuffs
    Lightweight, custom-moldable liner also features a microfleece lining, a performance insole and a wrap design that optimizes control of rearfoot volume
    Liners are engineered to fit correctly right out of the box, but they can be custom molded as well, a procedure best performed in an REI specialty ski shop
    Plush faux fur collars add style and comfort, and cuffs can be expanded to personalize the fit in your calves
    3 microadjustable aluminum buckles on each boot create an accurate fit
    Cable instep buckle on each boot minimizes foot sliding, heel lift and shell distortion while flexing
    Power straps enhance wrap and support of the upper ankles and increase the boots' forward rigidity
    Top of the boots a little tight? The adjustable cuffs of the Raya 9 boots means you can expand the circumference to fit lower calves
    Single canting adjustment fits the cuffs to the angles of your lower legs and levels the soles of the boots above the skis
    Ski/Walk mechanism softens the flex of the boot while you're headed toward the lift and increases the flex when you're carving turns down the hill
    Built-in heel lift in boots improves overall stance and increases heel hold; heel lift can shore up internal space up to 1cm
    With a flex index of 75, Dalbello Raya 9 ski boots offer medium resistance against forward flex, appropriate for most intermediate female skiers

  • 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.
