The all new VIPER series for men and MANTIS series for women are engineered for ambitious, hard charging performance skiers who take on terrain and conditions. Completely new, lightweight, tri-injection shell architecture wraps the foot precisely, is easy to put on and take off, and delivers highly energized response and power.
Featuring Dalbello’s revolutionary Contour 4 Fit Technology, Viper/Mantis’ versatile, 100 mm, performance last is slightly wider for an easier and more relaxed fit.
Tri-Injection technology molecularly bonds 3 different density polymers into one structure.
Special perforated fabrics and cushioning foams in the innerboot tongue actively vent and transport moisture away from the skin to facilitate warmth and comfort. Featured in Viper 12 (men) & Mantis 12 (women) innerboots.
Foot angle, cant angle, and cuff inclination engineered into the shell and cuff position skiers in a balanced and centered stance for optimal performance and response with new ski shapes, cambers, and rocker designs. Got rocker? Get True Balance!
Inspired by our Scorpion fit, the NEW 100 mm men’s Viper last & 99 mm women’s Mantis last are engineered for close, sensitive anatomical fit and foothold with enduring comfort.
Anatomical interior shell contouring + innovative innerboot foot mapping construction shaped to accommodate 4 critical fit points.
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.
Structurally, 2 piece overlap ski boots are simple constructions that are highly variable in volume. They are simple to open and close and are designed to hold the skier’s foot and leg in a strong and balanced stance position, permitting energy and leverage to be transferred from the skier’s feet and legs to the skis for performance and and control.
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, therby 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.
Simple construction. Bulletproof.
Very close fitting “connected-to-ski” feel.
Progressive and powerful for enhanced steering and control Top choice of technical and traditional performance skiers.
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 met atarsal, & 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
