The Dalbello Lupo AX 105 W has a new 100mm last that makes the legendary fit and performance of the Krypton’s Cabrio design available to more female skiers by offering a wider last. This crossover Freeride/Touring boot can be used equally well inside the resort or out. Tech inserts and a removable external tongue help you go up, and the legendary freeride performance of the cabrio design allows you to rip it up for the way down. Unlike overlap boots adapted for touring, where the lower shell is modified (weakened) to allow the boot to go into walk mode, with Dalbello’s cabrio design the lower shell has the same design in both touring and non touring applications.
Winner of a 2020-21 Editor’s Choice Award from America’s Best Boot Fitters.
Packed full of all-terrain and hiking features, the Dalbello Lupo AX 105 W continues to impress our test team with its dialed fit, stronger than expected flex feel, light weight, and touring skills. It is also one of only a few tech-binding compatible boots on the market that come in a size 21.5. Testers dig the ease on and off here after learning how to navigate the weatherproof gusset and cabrio-centric wraps. The fit is evenly medium-width, with a little extra room for higher insteps, and testers love the extended touring range of motion gained when the external tongue is removed.
