WHAT DOES IT DO ?

Modern shaped skis are more responsive and easier to turn than old style long, “straight skis”. Modern skis respond to very subtle and precise changes in angulations, edge pressure, and steering forces. Modern shaped skis are more dynamic than old style skis, requiring a ski boot that has strong side-to-side stability along with smooth and progressive flexibility in the forward direction. Modern skis, for most skiers, do not respond favorably to high quantities of force and pressure that are typically characteristic of more traditional design ski boots. Cabrio Design technology ski boots give skiers the optimal combination of support, stability, balanced stance, powerful edging control, and dynamic response.

HOW DOES IT FUNCTION ?

Cabrio Design permits the use of stiffer and more rigid plastics in the lower shell. This strengthens the support around the foot and lower leg providing quick response and precise transfer of power to the ski edges. This design also prevents the lower shell from distorting and bulging as the boot flexes, making the boot more smooth and stable at high speeds and on irregular terrain. Smooth and progressive forward flex is precisely controlled using an external shell tongue.
Changing dynamic flex and performance is controlled by simply changing tongue material and geometry, or by limiting the forward movement of the boot cuff with the flex adjustment mechanism. Only Cabrio Design ski boots feature such rigid and precise lateral support while at the same time providing a smooth and progressive flex. Cabrio Design technology also has a greater degree of fitting versatility than traditional ski boots . Cabrio Design is able to adapt to a wider variety of feet shapes and instep heights than conventional ski boots due the “open throat” lower shell/shell tongue construction.
