Dalbello Lupo SP Boot – 2014
From the Editors of Freeskier:
Sean Pettit’s pro model is tailored to the big-mountain freerider in you (and him). The three-piece shell is rated 130 on the flex index, with grippy rubber under the toe, arch and heel, as well as a hike mode for navigating over rocky terrain. Three sturdy aluminum buckles hold your foot in place, and the thermoformable liner wraps it up like a down blanket.
The Cons: Hike mode could have more articulation.
