No shin bang ever again
I like the Krypton pro. I skied it for two seasons. It is the best powder/jumping boot I have worn. The progressive flex protects your shin from a stopped impact like a traditional four buckle boot.
I feel a four buckle boot transfers more energy to the ski when edging and is quicker. The Krypton pro can not drive a very large ski like the XXL efficiently when compared to a stiff four buckle boot. If I just skied the park, powder or cliffs I would still be in the Krypton Pro.
The one negative is the sole of the boot is very soft. My friend wore out his boot in one season just walking on the tram dock in Jackson Hole.

Solid through and through
After riding these boots for a good 15 days so far this year from nasty Washington nights where the snow was cold cement to epic face shot powder days in Utah I have to say these boots excel everywhere. The lateral rigidity provides an amazing level of control from edge to edge. I will warn anyone looking at these boots as well as any 3 piece boot, the forward flex will take a little bit to get use to but once you do you'll realize how well it puts you in a true skiers stance and helps with the shock of landings, to bumps, to the nasty yippies left on those run outs.
The boot definitely runs on the small size so most likely you will be going down from what you may have been before. If you have a bit of a wider foot you may have to get some work done to get this boot to fit right. As for the comfort, after that 1st good day or 2 that you would expect with any new boot they are great and warm. The other part of the boot that i really like is the customization you can make through out the boot, from the flex to how stiff the bootboards are.
In addition to these boots I would definitely suggest a proper foot bed as the ones they provide are laughable.
Best Boot Ever
Awesome boot. So many ways to customize it and make it perfect. The comfort is unparalleled, I was able to go down a full size from my Agents.
Only God could make a better boot
The only reason I gave these boots four stars is A) I like being the dick professor who doesn't believe in a perfect score and B) The Gold Intuition liners need to be dialed in by a foot tech who knows their business. These liners will define the fit of the boot. Get your insoles, don't be cheap, buy them. The issue is that the overlap near the seam of the top-foot (lowest buckle) area needs to be perfectly overlapping, the liners need to wrap and fit in the boot perfect, and don't be afraid of pain when baking them. Buckle your boots tighter than L. Vonn on the Hahnenkamm. The performance is a neutral stance. Pretty stiff (140 setting) but super smooth articulation due to the three-piece construction. And remember Kermit was a ganster and miss piggy was a high maintenance hog who lost her frog to phat powder and huckin' stuff. God, I love huckin' stuff.
How does the last width and overall weight...
How does the last width and overall weight of these compare to similar flexing Full Tilts?
It's a pretty small last size. I think its 98. I've hiked with these in the backcountry and I didn't notice them to be very heavy. If your last size fits i really recommend these. I'll never ski another boot
I'm not sure how a 98mm last will fit, I'm running a 102mm overlap boot at the moment. But both the Full Tilts and these are listed at 98mm... trying to choose between the two. For what it's worth I'm an ex-racer and tend to ski more lines that park. Seems like these might be more geared toward that style of skiing?
Also, can the Dalbello's boot board be swapped out between active and rigid like the Full Tilts?
they are a tad heaver, however that is because they are using thicker plastic. the last is a 98mm and the FT last is 100mm. they are both great boots but i have found that the Dalbellos allow for more modifications and i like the ID liner better. but i always say with boots. go to a bootfitter and get someone to look at your feet.
I am going to be in need of new boots next...
I am going to be in need of new boots next season, and really want a 3 piece. However, I unfortunately have pretty wide feet (105mm). I was wondering if the liner would mold well, or if I should look at something different. It seems that most 3 piece boots are fairly narrow...
it will mold, but i would go to a shop and get fitted. i work as a masterfit boot fitter and i have put some wide paws in these boots. but you never know until you put your feet in them. check out the Nordica 3 pice boot (kinda a bastardized Krypton) i think it is wider. also the Full tilts are 100mm but they have a super low instep. you could check out the Axion 12 from Dalbello, it is a 4 buckle that has 3 buckle tendencies.
Thanks. I was also looking at the Full Tilt Konflicts, and I will definitely take your advice to go to a fitter. The boots I have now I took to get molded and punched out and there is such a huge difference.

Hi guys, I where a size 11 and was thinking of getting a 28.5 size boot. What do u guys recommend? Thanks!!
That equates to a 10.5 shoe size, and that would most probably work for your foot. I recommend getting a shell fit on this boot just to be sure though before you purchase, its going to be the most accurate way to size you. But if thats what recommended go for it. Awesome boot!!
I am a 10.5 street shoe. I went with a 26.5, I would say size down as much as you feel comfortable doing. The performance is going to be better and comfort will not be compromised. After sizing down, they are still the most comfortable boot I have skied.
Best boot out there! This boot is so customizable and in the hands of a good boot fitter, it would work for almost anyone. You will not get a more comfortable and high performance fit than the Gold Intuition liners. Most of the top freeskiers in the world are in a 3-piece shell type boot. The Dalbello is the most customizable and durable of them out there.
Dalbello Krypton Pro I.D.
Just picked these up, and out of the box I was worried they'd be to small. That's coming from and ex racer, who's used to jamming his foot into boots that are 3 full US sizes to small. I wear around a size 9.5-10 street shoe, and went with the 26.0. Well, I took them into the shop, and got the Intuition liners heat molded. Holy shit. I put the boots back on after molding, and they "fit like a glove". They went from being jammed in and painful to the nicest fit ever, while still being good and tight for the performance you want. The moral is size down, and no matter what, have them heat molded. Also, the level of customization on these boots is insane. they're pretty amazing.
Best for Me
Love It, hands down the best boot for my foot
