        Overall

        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.

        Performance

        It performs extremely well for my lifestyle on the slopes.  I have spent 70, 6-8 hour days in them for 2 years

        Design

        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!

        Value

        This boot for what it is with all the accessories is steal comparitively IMO of course!

        Fit

        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.

        Characteristics

        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

        Durability

        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

        Overall i am very satisfied with the boot.
        Pros:
        Great looking
        Ankle buckle
        super comfy
        durable
        Cons:
        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

        Performance

        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.

        Design

        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.

        Value

        Deff. worth the money found mine in september 07 for $229 way cheeper than retail

        Fit

        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.

        Durability

        Hold up great not major scratches or dents, they've got about a months use on them.

        Overall

        Wicked park boot and pow pow boot.
        Not meant for charging
        id liner is definately a plus

        Performance

        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)

        Design

        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.

        Value

        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.

        Characteristics

        Pretty soft.
        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.


        Durability

        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.

        Overall

        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.

        Performance

        So far this boot has performed well, giving me support so that I have control of my equipment, while flexing to remain comfortable.

        Design

        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.

        Value

        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.

        Characteristics

        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.

        Durability

        I'm still abusing it, so if these reviews are editable I'll let you know.

        Overall

        overall they are the best pair of boots i have ever ridden in

        Performance

        amazing flex pattern,,,,, easy to get into and out of, even when cold,,, soft enough for a cushy ride, but stiff enough for big landings,,,, amazing boot

        Design

        it feels pretty pimp,,, nice fuzzy type fabric in the calf area and some styley but not overdone graphics

        Value

        they are fairly expensive,, but u get what u pay for

        Characteristics

        even tho it seems like it would flex really weird because of the 3 buckles the flex pattern of this boot is amazing,,, it flexes just enough while still keeping ur heel firmly in place

        Durability

        have only had them for 1 month so i can't really tell,,, altho the reverse toe buckle is a good idea as i have broken several of those on older pairs of boots
