BOOTS - 2013 Dalbello Scorpion SR 150 WC Mens Race Ski Boots
2013 Dalbello Scorpion SR 150 WC Mens Race Ski Boots
The Dalbello Scorpion Series delivers pure, unadulterated precision ski boot performance. State of the art design architecture with a modern, natural, balanced, stance enhances the dynamic interaction between skier and ski. The result: Maximum power transmission with a level of stability, comfort, and high speed control unavailable in common production ski boots. Two Scorpion performance series: "SR" models for race. "SF" Models for big mountain/freeride.
Classic 2 Piece Overlap design ski boots are the industry’s most common design construction. 2 Piece overlap skiboots (sometimes referred to as “shellfit” boots) incorporate two structural elements - (1) a lower shell with overlapping and underlapping flanges that “wrap” to adapt to different volume feet and feet shapes securing the lower foot inside the ski boot, and (2) an upper cuff with over and underlapping flanges which, when closed, secure the lower leg and ankle inside the ski boot.
The “overlapping” function of the 2 piece design allows the over and underlapping flanges of the shell and cuff to slide across one another when the buckles are tightened, thereby adapting the volume of the shell and cuff to the individual skier’s foot and lower leg.Dynamic function in these designs is regulated by changing structural design elements (cuff and shell angle, cuff height, height of lower shell sidewalls, plastic stiffness, innerboot designs and constructions.
Contour 4 Technology is a revolutionary advance in performance ski boot fitting and engineering. The anatomical contours of the inside boot-shell and the innerboot lasts are perfectly mated to precisely map the shape of the typical high performance skier’s foot. A little extra “space” is molded into the inside of the boot shell at 4 critical fit points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, & navicular.
Out of the box, Contour 4 Fit Technology delivers all the comfort, precision, and control of a close fitting, low volume, high performance ski boot that has been “punched” and “stretched” by a custom bootfitter........with minimal need for “punching” or “stretching”. High performance has never felt so comfortable
Developed under the guidance of Austrian skiing legend and two-time Olympic Giant Slalom Medalist Christian Mayer, the new SCORPION series delivers pure, unadulterated, precision ski boot performance.
1) Nearly vertical medial shell walls position the foot closer to the inside edge
2) Increased thickness in medial shell & cuff walls for rigidity and power transfer with minimum distortion3) Thinner lateral shell walls deliver subtle lateral shell flex for smoother uphill ski transition and contact.
4) Quicker edge transitions
All Scorpion model innerboots feature Velcro mounted rear cuff spoilers/ Spoiler may be repositioned up/down to fine tune the lower leg support and fit, or may be removed to increase cuff circumference volume. Removing spoiler will reduce forward cuff inclination angle for a more upright stance.
Innovative shell lasting technology that maps the anatomical contours of the foot to create 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 with minimal need for shell punching or stretching. High performance has never felt so comfortable, out of the box!
