DALBELLO - HOMEMADE IS THE BEST SKI BOOT
At some point in time, having only one part under control was no longer enough for Giovanna and Alessandro Dal Bello. For over a decade, the two of them had first learned the art of ski boot making at Henke in Switzerland, before returning to Italy to work with the Brand as suppliers of leather uppers for ski boots. Your own ideas? Hard to implement. "Of course we were happy to be back in Italy," recalls Alessandro Dal Bello. "As a supplier and manufacturer of individual parts, however, we were limited when it came to showing our full talent in ski boot production. We knew that our ideas, our creativity were not being used effectively and we were sure that we could do better if we made our own ski boots".
Self-confidence created certainty, and in 1974 Dalbello presented his first own ski boot in Austria. However, being there was not enough for the new brand. She sat directly at the head of a movement that revolutionized the ski boat market. Plastic replaced leather, and the industry never looked back. Neither does Dalbello. The brand developed ideas, technologies, during the 1990s for example the first ski boot especially for carvers. Dalbello articles were well received. Intense. And so the Italian brand produced its 13,000,0000th pair of ski boots in 2014. A long way...
DALBELLO PRODUCTS: MADE IN ITALY, INFLUENCED BY TOP ATHLETES
Dalbello articles all have the same origin. Founded in 1974, Brand still designs, develops, creates and manufactures its boats in Italy. Particularly decisive here: the symbiosis of design and technology. To achieve this, Dalbello works closely with his team of professional alpine racers, freeskiers and freestylers. Each of them contributes his or her experience. Each one provides ideas. An exchange between athlete and developer establishes the cycle from which unique boots are finally created, tailored to the needs and requirements of each individual ski style.
For example, the Dalbello Sale includes ski boots with the innovative convertible design of the Brand. The cuff, shell and tongue form a three-part construction that ensures flexibility and responsiveness on the one hand and protection on the other. At the same time the fire thinks the ski boot to the end. After all, power transmission and edge grip are not his only tasks. That is why Dalbello products have liners that are perfectly adapted to the shell, ensuring a comfortable fit, support, easy entry and the warmth needed for cold days.

SKI BOOTS IN THE DALBELLO SHOP AT KELLER SPORTS
The basic idea remains, the technology drives forward. Dalbello products work on this basis. For example, Brand developed Gripwalk, a sole binding system with a rocker profile and co-polymer sole, which has a clearly positive effect on both walking comfort and handling. In addition, the 3D grip texture improves power transmission, provides protection and additional support when walking, while the innovative power cage increases performance potential. Now protection and performance are one thing. Since you want to stay on your skis as long as possible, comfort should not have to wait in line.
Therefore Dalbello has improved its My-Fit system once again. It complements the anatomically contoured Contour 4 shape by allowing individual zones of the inner shoe and shell to adapt to your foot through warmth. Ski boots, almost as if they were made to measure, plus Dalbello online - you can get them at Keller Sports.

No matter if it is the Dalbello Lupo for men and women, Pantera or the ski boots of the DS series, at Dalbello dealer Keller Sports you will find the premium ski boots of the Italian brand.
CLOSE EXCHANGE WITH TOP ATHLETES FOR NEW INNOVATIONS
Whenever you strap two boards under your boats, Dalbello is there. This applies to swings on the piste, as well as to the tour and freeskiing. The Brand feels particularly attached to the latter. Although Dalbello didn't get into freeskiing until the 2000s, he teamed up directly with legend Glen Plake and created the Rider Development Project. The idea behind it: To bring athletes and engineers together to adapt Dalbello ski boots even more intensively to the challenges of free runs and to develop new ideas. The concept was well received, and today both X-Game champion Tanner Hall and Olympic medalist Nick Goepper are wearing Dalbello boots. In alpine racing, Andrea Filser and Alice Robinson among others trust the innovations of the Italian brand.
SKI BOOTS FROM WOMEN FOR WOMEN AT DALBELLO SALE
Women know first hand what a ski boot needs to meet their personal requirements. That is why they also develop the women's collections that you can find at Dalbello dealers. Together, technicians, designers and athletes are driving the development forward, for example by equipping the boots with Tyrolean fleece for even more warmth at low weight. Weight reduction is at the top of the agenda. For this purpose, Dalbello uses lighter, more flexible materials that are processed to a special women's fit with special women's lasts.
