Ladies looking for a smooth-flexing boot with a relatively snug and high-performance last would do well to check out the Dalbello Krypton Chakra Women's Ski Boot. It has the same 95 flex as the Kyra, but a last that's three millimeters narrower for a slightly more aggressive feel, along with tech taken from Dalbello's more aggressive freeride boots, making the Chakra perfect for intermediates who like to ski hard without scaring themselves silly. Since the Kyra's a Dalbello, it's not surprising that it uses the company's classic three-piece Cabrio Design Architecture, which features a stiff lower shell and cuff along with an easy-flexing tongue for plenty of lateral power transmission without overwhelming front-to-back stiffness or the shin bang that comes with it. The Chakra's also been hooked up with a pre-punched Contour 4 shell fit designed to accommodate your navicular, metatarsal, and ankle bones, and a Trufit Performer Lady liner that works with the shell to give you a snug, slop-free fit without pinching or squeezing your toes to death. Dalbello also built in a Low Contour Profile cuff, which has a lower cut and higher volume for women's calves, and gave the Chakra the same Dynafit rearfoot retention system and inverted forefoot buckle as its freeride boots for a performance fit without the pain. Throw in adjustable flex, canting, and lean options, replaceable toe and heel lugs, and a centered stance designed to drive today's bigger skis, and the Chakra's more than ready to venture all over the mountain with you.
