2020 Dalbello Panterra 100 GW ski boots
Panterra is all new for 2020. The new Panterra 100 GW features a NEW SHELL design called Power Cage. The fit remains the same, but the overall shape of the outside is slimmer, and the weight is lighter yet again. By concentrating more material in some places, the power transmission to the ski's edge has been increased. But, less material in other places removes unnecessary weight. And, the walk mode as also been improved, now offering a 50 degree range of motion.
Also new for 2020, all Panterra models come with new Grip Walk soles. Grip Walk is a whole new world for any skier who walks any distance in their ski boots. Maybe a hike up to that special spot that is not lift served. Or, maybe just walking in the parking lot. Ski boots have never been this easy to walk in.
This 100 flex version of Panterra is a great intermediate boot, with almost all the same features as the more expenisve, stiffer models. Panterra 100 offers the perfect balance between performance and forgiveness, and is a good choice for any buyer who is moving up from a beginner level, softer flexing boot.
Panterra offers a combination of 3 piece shell design and AT capability no other boot on the market offers! Dalbello has well established itself as a top boot brand in the world by designing ski boots with 3 piece shell architecture that work really, really well with today's ski designs. Dalbello has one of the most modern ski boot manufacturing facilities in the world, enabling them to deliver the best values in the market, and their passion is devoted ONLY to designing and building the world's best ski boots. Panterra is the latest example of what this company, focused 100% on ski boots, can bring to the market for skiers everywhere.
Panterra is designed from the ground up with Rocker Balanced Stance geometry to work perfectly with wider, rockered ski shapes. Skiing on today's new skis is much more intuitive. Skiers can simply work the ski from edge to edge without the need to be so focused on steering the front of the ski. Just tip a rockered, big sidecut ski on edge, and you will find that it can make turns with little effort. But, couple these skis with yesterday's boot, and lots of potential is left unused. Today's skis are also shorter, much wider, and lighter weight. So, the skier's feet and legs must be able to absorb what is going on under the ski, and power must be transmitted further out to its edge. Dalbello has created ski boots with stance geometry that works in harmony with all the newest ski designs. Dalbello's RBS designed boots have a little less forward lean (to allow a more natural, upright stance), have a lower heel height (to allow the legs to travel further forward as the boot flexes), and are stiffer from side to side (to transmit maximim power to the ski's edge). Dalbello calls this Rocker Balanced Stance, but you will call it magic on the snow. With this new stance geometry, skiing is just easier. Fatigue is reduced by an amazing amount, and feel for the snow is remarkable. It is finally possible to be relaxed when standing on a pair of skis. Never before have ski boots been optimized so well to work with today's radically different (by historical standards) ski designs.
The heart of the Panterra's design is Dalbello's well proven Cabriolet design with THREE important features. (1) The forward flex and lateral stiffness are separated from each other, (2) the location of the innovative Dynalink buckle holds the foot down and back in the shell better than any other buckle system on the market, and (3) the lower cuff hinge points allow a very natural movement of the leg fore and aft, and superior side to side (cant) angle adjustment to ensure the ski is riding flat on the snow. Panterra offers a 3 piece shell design in a roomier, more mainstream fit than found in the lower volume KR series, with the same Power Cuff design with super low hinge points, and the same Dynalink instep buckle to lock the foot down and back.
InstaFit liners are molded to perfectly match the contour of the foot on the inside, while also perfectly matching the inner contour of the shell on the outside. This Panterra 120 IF features the firmest, highest performance InstaFit liner found in the Panterra family. It offers a really nice fit right out of the box, and will mold well to your foot during the first few days of skiing. Like all InstaFit liners, it can also be heated to conform to the shape of your foot more quickly.
