Dalbello’s first Women’s Lupo, the AX 105 W is a crossover freeride/touring model that combines incredible touring performance combined with on-mountain versatiity, with a huge size range that extends all the way down to a 21.0 Mondo Point! Tech inserts and a removable external tongue help you go up, and the legendary freeride performance of the cabrio design allows you to rip it up for the way down. Unlike overlap boots adapted for touring, where the lower shell is modified (weakened) to allow the boot to go into walk mode, with Dalbello’s cabrio design the lower shell has the same design in both touring and non touring applications. The IF AIR liner is thermo-formable for an optional instant break-in in just a few minutes. Now available: GripWalk® soles with Vibram®!

This unique construction combines a 3 piece construction assembly.
The Cabrio design is a 3 piece construction – shell/cuff/tongue – that comfortably secures the foot and lower leg while optimizing smooth and progressive flexibility. Dalbello’s Cabrio models provide the ultimate in responsive performance to ski your best.
The new sole-binding system for walking comfort and skiing performance, available in 90% of the Dalbello ski boots collection.
GripWalk contains a new co-polymer sole with rocker profile. The convex shape and ribbed tread of the rubber add a lot of walking comfort and provide a much better grip. GripWalk soles are the perfect tuning parts designed for 90% of the Dalbello boot collection and don’t require any height adjustment at GripWalk bindings.
Quick removable tongue:
Taken away easily with only one hand, the removed tongue offers endless forward lean movement while hiking and great skiing performance for downhilling due to it’s flex.
Range of motion of the cuff:
Forward and backward lean for the boots while walking.
48° (35° forward lean, 13° backward lean) As it’s a touring boot, the forward lean while hiking is the most important to walk with.
Low cuff hinge point:
High leverage cuff assembly with hinge points mounted approximately 10 cm lower than standard construction boot designs.
The low hinging cuff permits the boot cuff to more easily follow the natural anatomic movement of the skier’s legs because it has a longer range of forward and rearward hinging motion. For more efficient walking and gliding. Increased power and control with less energy.
Touring norm with tech insert:
All Lupo models may be used with ISO 9523 Alpine Touring Norm bindings due to their tech inserts.
By changing the rockered soles to the interchangeable alpine soles the boots fit in all alpine bindings as well but are not certified ISO 5355.
Fit for women:
Dalbello’s Women’s Collection leadership.
Dalbello’s Women’s ski-boot line is developed by women. Woman technicians, designers and members of the Dalbello Freeski team are involved with product engineering and design. The finest Italian design technology assures the best dedicated women’s product in the world.
Exclusive Dalbello construction technology that maps the anatomical contours of the foot.
Contour 4 creates subtle “comfort zones” at 4 critical fit points: ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, & navicular. Relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at these 4 points provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.
“We have had great experiences with the comfort and practicality of Dalbello’s Cabrio 3 piece boots. The Lupo gives great control and stability on the descents with a big range of motion and good comfort for the climbs and hike sections, making it an excellent free touring boot”
