Excelellent. Everyone who has a naqrrow fooot and spends a huge amount of time on the slope and doesn't necessarily need a racer performance boot should try them.
It performs extremely well for my lifestyle on the slopes. I have spent 70, 6-8 hour days in them for 2 years
The 3 buckle cross system is cool looking, not sure if it does anything for the performance. I guess the feux fur cuff is rad too! ha!
This boot for what it is with all the accessories is steal comparitively IMO of course!
My foot is narrow and fits very well around my ankle and foot. The toe box is huge, so this can be a positive in comfort and a negative in performance. Being able to wiggle your toes to get blood flowing is a plus for me.
This is a soft boot in my opinion. The three peice design lends itself to a myriad of easy micro adjustments with camber and lean
The liner has packed out slightly, but for the amount of time I spend in them, I expected this and had them fit accordingly. It has surpassed my expectations comparitively to other boots I have had.
Overall i am very satisfied with the boot.
Toe box got a little cold on very cold days out of the park
A little heavier than expected but got used to them very quick
First of all this is the most comfortable boot i have ever skied in, the ankle buckle helps keep my foot in place perfectly and I haven't gotten toe bang or anything like that once, i did get minor shin bang, but nothing like black and blue shins, just the sore end of the day shin band you really can't ever avoid. On the coldest day out of this season around 8 degrees F, the toe box did get a little chilly, but some warmer socks should fix that.
The Brown and tan looks awesome the graphic on the side is sick and the faux fur liner is super comfy and look dope. Not much else to say, but it's a sick looking boot.
Deff. worth the money found mine in september 07 for $229 way cheeper than retail
Fits my foot amazingly, super comfortable. I wouldn't recommend it to any one with a wide foot, but if you have a average to narrow foot like myself this boot will fit perfectly. Just always remember to try the boot and get fitted for it before you buy it.
Hold up great not major scratches or dents, they've got about a months use on them.
Wicked park boot and pow pow boot.
Not meant for charging
id liner is definately a plus
It performed quite well in the BC, groomers and park. I have very narrow feet and this boot did the best job out of many many boots in keeping my heel in place. It is on the softer side and thus is not really meant for charging lines.
An issue tho was the plastic the boot is made from. It tends to conduct cold much better than some other boots (lange Freeride 120 at the other end of the spectrum) and thus my toes did freeze up quite often. If you have good socks tho and don't tighten the front of the boot too much, your feet should warm up by mid-day.
The lowest buckle is reversed to prevent it from banging/breaking when your boots bang against each other which is always nice.
I would also change the liner to an id liner (heat molded liner).
They're not the lightest boots, but ive rode heavier.
They have a tightening contraption on the top of your foot which if can take some getting used to because initially it presses down on your foot and can be quite annoying (although not painful)
Its quite a pretty boot. The gold dragon type design makes it steezy as does the faux-fur. Although the fur get padded quite quickly. Its not very flashy, but classy.
I bought these boots off the net for 300US. They retail $500US. Boots these days are excessively expensive (closer to a $1000) so I think i got my bang for my buck.
I have kinny ankles and small calfs and needed to drill a hole in the frame to bring the top buckle closer to tighten the top. A sweet park boot, but not recommened for BC. They have a buckle between your ankle and foot which gives you a really nice flex when you land jumps or clifs. You would want to hit up the higher performance Kryptons for charging BC lines tho.
So far the casing and liner are still in great shape after a month of skiing in south america. The buckle however could be better quality. My previous boots were Salomon Proforma's 9.0 whose buckles could withstand anything. These seem to be made from cheaper/thinner metal and are already showing heavy signs of wear and tear.
I almost feel bad giving these boots a 10 becuase 10's should be reserved for only the best. The Kryton Rampage is that. Dalbello has returned to an old design but at the same time is inovative in the design of the Rampage.
So far this boot has performed well, giving me support so that I have control of my equipment, while flexing to remain comfortable.
The three buckle design is great in my opinion. As I stated above the middle buckle pulls your heal into the boot giving a very solid feel. The reversed toe buckle is another good idea, seeing that I have ripped buckle off my other boots.
Boots seem like they are expensive a cross the board. This one is no exception. If you are going to buy a new boot the Rampage would be a good investment into your skiing.
This boot comes with a fairly soft flex. The flex rating is 8 15. When the boot does flex it holds your heal in place with the middle buckle.
I'm still abusing it, so if these reviews are editable I'll let you know.
