Easy on the up. Hard on the down.

Dalbello's Lupo AX 120 Ski Boot has that tough-to-achieve combination of feeling light on the uphill and charging hard on the downhill; it's the combination that hard-charging freeriders look for when they're hunting powdery stashes and big lines in the backcountry. Unlike most backcountry boots with a two-piece shell, the Lupo's unique three-piece construction retains a long-lasting stiffness of 120 that doesn't break down over a single season; in fact, the flex is so reliable that you shouldn't have a problem riding it in the resort.

The three-piece construction—code-named Cabrio—uses a shell, cuff, and tongue to give the boot a smoother power transmission, a dynamic rebound, and excellent shock absorption. Since Dalbello already uses Cabrio for all its dedicated alpine boots, it only makes sense that it would apply the same design to an AT boot by utilizing a removable tongue instead of a flimsy overlap shell that will eventually hit a wall when the boot is flexed forward. The shell also features Dalbello's wide Hyperband power strap for more comfort and control while skiing.

Inside the boot, Dalbello inserted a thermo-moldable IF Air liner that conforms to your foot after a heating process for a customized feel. This Air version is more breathable and warmer than Dalbello's usual liners. Combine that with a comfier 100mm last, and you're ready for touring to the farthest reaches of mountain ranges in search for the best snow in the backcountry. Underfoot, the boot's Xtra Grip rubber toe stays solid when you encounter icy ridges, and you can interchange them with alpine DIN or touring soles for versatility in or out of the resort.

Love em

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these as a gift and he loves them, so far he's only used them in bounds but is moving over from a telemark setup to an AT setup and this will be a great boot that can be used in both.

67 degrees?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

With a full 67 degrees of lean (40 degrees forward and 27 degrees back) these boots feel more like shoes than boots when out on the skin track. One major piece I was concerned with was removing the tongue and what that would do to the warmth of the boot. Haven't had a chance to tour in super deep snow yet, but so far so warm. Really loving them!

Overall flex is good for this old guy. Everyone talks about needing a 130 flex boot to get it to perform, but unless you are charging the steepest of steeps a 120 flex with good lateral stiffness will perform just as great as a 130. You can order a different stiffness in the tongue as it comes in three different stiffnesses. Recommend you reach out to Dalbello if this is something you need, but for me...at 5' 8", 185 lbs. and someone that has been skiing for 39 years they are perfect!

You can also order Alpine Grip Walk soles to make these boots compatible with all Alpine bindings.

Light Weight - Might be Too Flexy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This has been a great boot overall. I was a little nervous about the fit around my foot and the 3 buckle system as I've never had a Dalbello boot before. The boot is nice and light weight, so up hill is great however, the flex is a little "less" than expected. I bought a 120 flex and it feels a little more like a 100. Good thing is, I can change the front plate of the boot out and get it to be more stiff!
