Dalbello LUPO 130 C Ski Boots - 2019
LUPO 130 C
The Lupo 130 is geared for skiers who want the versatility of a high performance freeride boot that also features tech inserts for touring. A burly ski/hike lever is integrated into its 3 Piece Cabrio design, providing instant access to excellent climbing capability. An added feature is the removable tongue - when removed, the boot has a full 67 degree range of motion. With the tongue installed for the way back down, the skier enjoys the legendary freeride performance that Krypton architecture provides. Unlike many traditional overlap boots in its category, the Lupo's Cabrio 3 Piece design does not require any modification of the lower shell to enable a hike mode, so the skier enjoys great in-bounds performance no matter what the conditions. The new IF AIR liner is thermo-formable for an optional instant break-in after just a few minutes of heating. Now available: GripWalk® soles with Vibram®!

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 CUFF
Forward and Backward lean for the boots.
LUPO FACTORY, LUPO 130 C, LUPO AX 125 C, LUPO AX 120: 67° (40° Forward Lean, 27° Backward Lean) LUPO AX 115, LUPO AX 110 W: 48° (35° Forward Lean, 13° Backward Lean) As it’s function of a touring boot, the forward lean while hiking is the most important to walk with.
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 INSERT
All 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.
Hand made High Tech full carbon carbon cuff to achieve lightweight –power transmission and the best lateral control edge to edge.
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. The tongue can be easily interchanged inbetween the following stiffness-variables:
>> STIFF - Flex index - 120/130 : Strong flex and very quick smooth elastic rebound for high / Pro level skier
>> MEDIUM - Flex index - 100/120: Medium flex with gentle elastic smooth rebound for medium to strong skier
>> SOFT - Flex index - 85/100: Soft flex with forgiven smooth elastic rebound made specific for woman / light skier
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.

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.
Permits skiers to precisely “fine tunes” buckle closure tension for a more exact fit.
