Description

For those who like to attack fear-inducing big-mountain lines.

If face-melting speeds, sphincter-clenching cliff drops, and massive straightlines are in your future, count on the Dalbello Men's Krypton KR 2 Pro I.D. Ski Boot to join you for the ride. Designed to optimize performance on ultra-wide and rockered skis, the KR 2 Pro feature a 130 flex index and anatomically precise 98mm last that provide expert-level performance and sensitivity. This stiff and powerful boot gives pros and die-hard skiers the tools to rip the mountain from top to bottom.

The KR 2 Pro uses an innovative Cabrio design architecture that combines a boot shell/boot cuff assembly with an external Kinetic Response shell tongue closure. As a result, this design provides rigid lateral support for dynamic power-to-ski energy transfer with a comfortable, smooth flex, superior shock absorption, and a super-convenient way to put on and take off the KR 2 Pro. Dalbello's Contour 4 shell fit technology features relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at the ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, and navicular points to provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.

To provide a strong foothold and rearfoot stability when you charge big lines, the KR 2 Pro features Dynalink Rearfoot Retention that uses an independently functioning heel/instep closure assembly to effectively minimize foot sliding, heel lift, and boot shell distortion when you flex the boot. With today's modern rockered skis and lateral skiing technique you need a much more upright and neutral (flatter) stance, so Dalbello incorporated its Center Balanced Stance technology into the KR 2 Pro to center your body mass over the sweet spot of your skis for more power and control with less effort.

The renowned Intuition I.D. Thermo Pro liner supplies a 100% custom fit designed to eliminate relative movement between the liner and shell for improved response, accurate and powerful energy transfer to the ski, and better control. The Pro uses a no-tongue overlapping design that's able to hold your foot and leg in a stronger and more balanced stance position.

The KR 2 Pro comes with two interchangeable tongues (stiff and medium) that allow you to adjust the flex of the boot while two interchangeable footboards (firm and anti-shock) adjust to your riding style. In addition, the KR 2 Pro has twin canting and an adjustable forward lean so you can really adjust the boot to your skiing style. For a secure, comfortable boot closure, the KR 2 Pro has three F500 aluminum micro-adjustable buckles and a power strap.

KR2 is da BomB!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I seriously love these boots! I have been on them for almost a year, and they are amazing. Make sure you take the time (and money) to have them properly fitted and punched for your foot. It is well worth it!!?

-Brian Hopper, founder HOPPERSKI Gear Reviews

The review (written Feb 2013)

The boots: showed up early February 2013 right before I was to leave for Whistler. After getting the boots fitted at Fanatyk Co in Whistler Village, I was set! Wow. Boots that fit like a glove!!

About DALBELLO: Dalbello Skiboots is the only independent ski boot producer in the world. The factory is nestled in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains in Asolo, Italy. The company has been producing skiboots in Asolo for over 30 years and is the world?s third largest ski boot manufacturer. Podium!

The fit: Boots are a bit subjective of course, but if you have the right size, width, and stiffness of boot for your style of skiing, that is half the battle! The KR2Pro packs a 130 flex and anatomically precise 98mm last to bring expert-level performance and sensitivity to the ski, and better yet, what is below your ski! Dalbello has the Intuition heat moldable Liners in these boots standard, and what a difference that makes to the fit of the boot!! In my case, the boot fitting took about 2 hours+. For more on how my boot fitting went, click here! Truly, this is the most comfortable, best fitting boot I have had.

Target audience: The skier who skis big lines, charges hard in all conditions, and who demands a high performance boot. Dalbello has quite a roster of athletes on their boots from Plake, to Tanner Hall to Sean Pettit. I know for fact the KR2Pro is the boot Sean Petit has been using for quite some time (look for his pro model in 2013/2014, it is sweet!). Plake calls this boot ?the most controversial ski boot out there.? Reason being it is a high performance boot with only three buckles!

A step above the KR1

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best 3 piece boot on the market hands down!! Heel hold is unmatched. The Contour4 toe box fits perfect. I used to punch out the toes on the original Krypton. The KR2 all I did was mold the liners and go ski no mods necessary.

what year are these boots? (2012/2013 or...

Can a boot get any better?

This is the highest-performing, best-fitting, most capable boot I have ever skied.
For me, the KR2 excels for the following reasons:
Heel hold! - As soon as your heel disconnects from your boot-board you have lost precise control of your skis. The KR2 locks your heel down like it's being molded in concrete. No other boot I have worn comes close. I have heard more than one boot-fitter remark that a bit of heel-lift is inevitable. Simply not the case with this boot. Expect more.
Progressive flex - I'm a convert to the 3-piece school. I haven't found an overlap boot that flexes as smoothly and without shell distortion.
Adaptability - Swap tongues for flex adjustment. Replace stiff boot-board with rubber option for hard landings. Full cuff-alignment. Plug in different width plastic shims for shifting forward lean.
Lateral power - This boot makes my feet stronger. I have moderately collapsed arches and the ankle shape of the KR2 corrects for it. I know it sounds unlikely but these boots force your feet into their most powerful stance, with the heel and outer edges of the forefoot forming a stable tripod primed for destroying cruddy snow and managing g-forces on edge.
Edge feel - Something about the design of the KR2 makes you feel centered and balanced on your edges, and that stability provides great feedback, letting you actively drive your skis through a turn - as opposed to your legs and body just being along for the ride.
Power transmission - This is basically a general reiteration of what has already been said. The KR2 makes your feet and ankles stronger.
Warmth -Intution liners are a globally superior piece of hardware. The fact that they are included stock with this version of the boot is just awesome.
Build Quality - Have you ever slammed the door on a BMW and felt the superior build quality on a visceral level? Well, buckling up the KR2 provides the same sensation.

Hello I am looking for new 3 pieces boots...

Hello I am looking for new 3 pieces boots and trying to figure out if a Dalbello or a FullTilt boot would be the best choice for me.
I know that the Dalbello has more room at the instep and that FullTilt are lighter boots how much lighter ?
I am skiing moguls and weight matters.
Can you tell me the weight of the Dalbello Krypton Pro 2 ID 2014 size 28.0 MP ?
Thanks for your response.
Regards,
Christian.

Hey Christian,
The two will be almost identical as far as the fit is concerned, as you said, just a bit higher instep on the Dalbello. As far as weight most Full Tilts are just a bit heavier due to their liners, mostly. You may like the Flex of a Full Tilt a bit more in the Moguls, they tend to have a bit smoother of a flex as a result of having a bit less plastic around the shin. If you are looking for something that is playful and flexy, go with Full Tilt. If you'd like something that is a bit stiffer and more aggressive than go with these. They will weigh about 2684 Grams per boot.

Just tried on these and the FT Konflict. The fit is very similar, the only difference I noticed was that there was a lot more room in the heel of the FT. For me, that was not good, so I went with the Dalbello. But try them on yourself before making a decision.

Like Buttah

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the 2012 Krypton Pro ID, and it is the best thing that has ever happened to my feet. The snug fit combined with the ID liner, and race-like feel make it a great boot for chargers. The three piece cabrio design is super adjustable and feels like you have flex for days. If you're on the fence about getting a new pair of boots, jump to the other side!

I'll never buy a different boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you want a stiff, narrower lasted boot, this is the one for you.
It's by far the best boot I've ever skied in. The three piece system in the boot gives it a natural feeling flex. Even with a stiff 130 flex rating, it doesn't feel like your ramming your shin against a wall. It certainly excels in big mountain shredding, but even in the park, I love this boot.

The liner makes it. The Intuition I.D. Thermo Pro is the best liner out there. The entire liner is heat moldable to fit your foot exactly. It will make it fit like a whole new boot. (I thought the boot was pretty uncomfortable before I molded the liner)
If you are going to buy this boots, you should definitely mold the liner. I would also highly recommend going to a ski shop to get this done. It can be easy to screw up if you try to do it yourself.
I have a street shoe size 10.5, went with the 27.5 in this boot and it's perfect.
