Even more important however, the upper cuff can be unlocked to make that "hike" though the parking lot much, much easier. Even when standing in line for lunch, this feature just makes the boot more comfortable to stand in. Designed with a single buckle upper cuff, and super wide power strap, it has been designed from its inception as a "walk friendly" ski boot. And, there is even extra traction built into the bottom of the boot.
So, you are less likely to slip and slide as you walk anywhere in this killer new boot. This is top model for men in this group of boots , with the best liner construction and stiffest shell material, and a very nice, very functional buckle system. Here is a full list of the features found on the Panterra MX 100. TruFit Performer liner is the firmest liner available in any Panterra MX model. It is a bit snugger than the lesser models, and just right for a lot of more aggressive skiers.Dalbello's TruFit liners are a very sophisticated design, and constructed with premium materials. It offers a "stitchless" design where the tongue is fastened into the top of the liner for max comfort over the toes. The toe box is very roomy and more comfortable because the tongue is actually a part of the entire liner, and not simply sewed to the top of it. And, this design makes it very difficult for melted snow to run down into the liner, so the boot stays drier inside. Two piece classic shell design.
With a separate piece on top of the overlap section of the lower shell, this new boot actually functions very much like Dalbello's well known three piece boot models. The lower shell section's opening over the foot does not overlap in the middle like just about every other boot on the market This second lower shell component allows the shell to be roomier over the problem areas on top of the foot, while still allowing the boot to close securely around the foot as the bottom buckles are tightened. Pressure on top of the foot is distributed more evenly across the entire foot for more comfort with no loss of "foot hold".
This concept of a 3 piece, overlap design boot is very innovative. Contour 4 Shell Fit designed lower shell is more anatomically shaped. Strategic areas of the foot have been given more room so the foot can be over all closer to the entire shell without sacrificing all day comfort.
These 4 areas are (1) ankle, back of the heel, outside the little toe, and navicular (just under the inside ankle). Boot fitters have been stretching and punching out ski boots in these four areas since plastic ski boots were first invented.
Better fit, better performance with Contour 4 Shell Fit. Rocker Balanced Stance - Discussed above, RBS offers the most modern stance geometry of any ski boot offered on the market. Enjoy your day on the snow with less fatigue, better control, and better performance in a wide range of snow conditions.
Ski-Hike mechanism allows the upper cuff to be unlocked from the lower shell for easier walking, skinning and hiking. A flip of the lever on the back of the boot allows the boot to hinge through a nice range of motion. Loosening the top buckle and power strap allows for even easier walking over longer distances.
Turn the flex adjuster on the back of the cuff to select stiff or soft. This is the stiffest boot available in the Panterra MX series. At its stiff setting, Dalbello rates this boot at a 100 Flex, which is perfect for any intermediate to advanced athletic skier.
F16 aluminum micro adjustable buckles. Are super tough, very precise, and can be adjusted to provide exactly the necessary amount of tension in the fit zones of this boot. Super wide power strap around the top of the boot. A wider strap offers more support up high, keeping the leg and foot much closer as they move together.
How does the Panterra MX 100 fit? The overall shape of the boot fits medium to slightly wider than an average volume foot. Width is average, the toe box is roomy and the heel pocket is nice and snug.The instep is slightly HIGHER than many overlap boots, and the upper cuff is a bit SHORTER (shorter yet if the spoiler is removed) and snug. If you have slighter wider feet, a higher instep, or larger calves, this will be a great choice for you. Here is a great price on a really good boot! Grab this deal up while supplies last.
