Dalbello Lupo Factory same fit as Krypton Pro?
I currently ride the Dalbello Krypton Pro and love it. I have been looking for a touring boot so naturally I looked at the Lupo Factory and Lupo 130. Normally I would just go into a shop and try em on to see if the fit was right but I now live far enough away from a shop that it's not an option.
So my question is do they fit mostly the same? It says that the Lupo factory and 130 share the Krypton shell shape but are there other changes to fit? Thanks for any answers.
The shells are the same fit. I've been riding the lupo sp for years and I switched over to the factory last year. The touring liner in the factory feels a little bit looser since it lacks the rigid spine from the old intuition liners. I throw my old liners back in if I'm riding the lift all day. I feel like the carbon cuff on the factory is a much harsher ride hardpack compared to the old lupo. I haven't ridden the 130 so I can't say if it would feel the same. If you like the fit of the pro then you can't go wrong with either. If you're going to do longer tours then you might look at the AX120. They have the same fit but in a 100mm last. I didn't like the room for an everyday boot but it would be nice after several mile of skinning.
You may find a difference in the liners. I think the Factory uses a lighter touring liner that lacks some of the higher density foam that used to come in the KR Pro and Lupo. The shell should fit the same.
This sounds worth the drive! For resort/slack country days throw my other liners in and on actual touring days use the stock liner. Thanks for the answers boys!
Let me save you a little time and money... I broke three Lupos last season, one was plastic and the other two issues were breaking the walk to ride mechanism. They did NOT redesigned the boot and still has the current issues. DM me for more info.
