Why we chose the Dalbello Lupo 130 C: Zero compromise on downhill performance.
Known for creating some of the finest three-piece boots in the market – namely the Krypton. The narrow last of the Krypton, combined with a beauty of a flex soon meant that these boots became the go-to boot for many.
Look on the feet of some of the hardest charging free riders out there and you’ll most likely find a pair of Dalbellos on their feet – Johnny Collinson, Markus Eder and Sam Smoothy – they’re all having a piece of these Italian beauties.

After the success in the downhill market, Italian ski boot manufacturer Dalbello soon looked to create touring boots for those looking to access backcountry terrain, whilst still preserving the downhill performance of the Krypton. Their start into the touring boot market began with the now-classic Sherpa, then into the Lupo range and now this, the Lupo 130 C.
So what’s so great about a three-piece design? It’s really up to personal preference, so again, get down to your local ski shop and flex a three-piece design to compare it to more traditional overlap styles of boot.
