Boots Dalbello Lupo AX 120 2021
About Dalbello Lupo AX 120 ski boots 2020
The Lupo AX 120 is the crossover ski boot for freeriding and touring. With a 100 mm last it offers slightly more foot space and therefore particularly impressive comfort. Its vast area of use ranges from the piste in ski resorts to deep powder in the backcountry, only accessible after a climb. The large, easy-to-use ski/hike buckle and removable tongue allow a 67° range of movement. The legendary freeride performance of the cabrio design comes through on descents and enables beautifully carved turns even on hard pistes. The lightweight IF AIR liner becomes thermoformable after just a few minutes to enable optimal adaptation to the foot. High-quality GripWalk soles with a Vibram® profile can be optionally fitted to make walking easier and reduce the risk of slipping.
This unique construction combines a 3 piece construction assembly. The Cabrio design is a 3 piece construction - shell/cuff/tongue – that comfortably secures the foot and lower leg while optimizing smooth and progressive flexibility. Dalbello’s Cabrio models provide the ultimate in responsive performance to ski your best.
The new sole-binding system for walking comfort and skiing performance, available in 90% of the Dalbello ski boots collection. GripWalk contains a new co-polymer sole with rocker profile. The convex shape and ribbed tread of the rubber add a lot of walking comfort and provide a much better grip. GripWalk soles are the perfect tuning parts designed for 90% of the Dalbello boot collection and don't require any height adjustment at GripWalk bindings.
QUICK REMOVABLE TONGUE
Taken away easily with only one hand, the removed tongue offers endless forward lean movement while hiking and great skiing performance for downhilling due to it’s flex. RANGE OF MOTION OF THE CUFFForward and backward lean for the boots while walking. Lupo Factory, Lupo Pro HD, Lupo 130 C, Lupo AX 120, Lupo AX HD Lupo AX 90: 67° (40° forward lean, 27° backward lean) Lupo AX 105 W: 48° (35° forward lean, 13° backward lean) Since it is a touring boot, the forward lean is the most important part while hiking
LOW CUFF HINGE POINT
High leverage cuff assembly with hinge points mounted approximately 10 cm lower than standard construction boot designs. The LOW HINGING CUFF permits the boot cuff to more easily follow the natural anatomic movement of the skier’s legs because it has a longer range of forward and rearward hinging motion. For more efficient walking and gliding. Increased power and control with less energy. TOURING NORM WITH TECH INSERTAll Lupo models may be used with ISO 9523 Alpine Touring Norm bindings due to their tech inserts. By changing the rockered soles to the interchangeable alpine soles the boots fit in all alpine bindings as well but are not certified ISO 5355.
Exclusive Dalbello construction technology that maps the anatomical contours of the foot. Contour 4 creates subtle “comfort zones” at 4 critical fit points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, navicular. Relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at these 4 points provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.
HYPERBAND WIDE PROFILE CUFF CLOSURE
UNIQUE DALBELLO DESIGN. Low friction, wide proﬁle shin pad closure securely wraps the upper part of the boot cuf with a wide profile, high leverage cuff closure buckle assembly. Smooth flexing design is highly shock absorbing for maximum boot-top comfort with NO “SHIN-BANG” or, NO “SHIN-BITE”
KINETIC RESPONSE TONGUE
The highly resilient polyamide flex ribbed tongue is available in three different kind of flex-stiffness (stiff, medium and soft). All of them stay in permanent contact with the leg and improve the responsiveness and control of the boots behavior.
DYNALINK HEEL RETENTION SYSTEM
The Dynalink heel retention is an independently functioning heel / instep closure assembly which minimizes foot sliding, heel lift and boot shell distortion during the flex effectively.
> Independently functioning heel /instep closure assembly
> Minimizes foot sliding, heel lift and boot shell distortion during flex effectively
SKI & HIKE MECHANISM
As the burly cuff lock mechanism frees the upper cuff from the lower shell a long range of motion for functional hiking and climbing is guaranteed. Due to the unique Cabrio design it doesn't contain any compromises on the skiing performance.
All collection has strong and lightweight alu buckles, ergonimically designed for easy use.
INVERTED FOREFOOT BUCKLE
Forefoot closure buckle (above instep) are inverted to close on top of the bootshell, not on the side. The top closure positioning prevents buckle breakage and bending during rail slides, grinds, falls, and transitions.
Permits skiers to precisely “fine tunes” buckle closure tension for a more exact fit.
IF AIR/IF AIR PLUS
Beeing breathable and warm at the same time are the outstanding benefits of the IF AIR liner. Its medium density EVA foam wrapps the foot instantly and can be fitted 80% to the feet's specific needs. Thanks to its flexible zones in the back part and the quick adjustable laces, the IF AIR is used especially in the Lupo line to support the skier during the hike up and the joyful run down.
