Dalbello tech question
i received some krypton pro id boots directly from dalbello. what function do the four curved pieces that fit into the inside back of the cuff serve? it seems as if i could clip in all 4, or maybe just one in each boot in the high or low spot. i figured asking this team would be quicker that the dalello rep.I sleep really well after working with p-tex in the evening. But, all the next day my eyelids and the skin between my thumbs and fingers twitch alot.

Let me clarify just in case. I'm speaking of the balck ones that clip or snap inside the boot behind the liner. I know the green ones are for forward lean. just making sure.I sleep really well after working with p-tex in the evening. But, all the next day my eyelids and the skin between my thumbs and fingers twitch alot.

The forward lean adjustment pieces are the ones that slip in to the bottom of the cuff from the outside of the shell. The biggest give the most forward lean, the other ones a little less, remove them all together for the least amount of forward lean. I use none. I can still lean forward and drive my skis. I don't know why you would need to be locked into a forward position, but I have never raced so I don't know.
I believe what you are talking about is the stiffeners that are installed inside the cuff. I haven't messed with these at all. I think the boots are plenty stiff for me.

Never mind I got the Brown and cream Dalbello's they all have the same adjustments though.

the black ones that go inside the boots are to stiffen up the boot. they also add a little bit more forward leanConti Crue::

^^Jim J has it right. There are two sets of plastic accessories. The ones that insert into the rear of the boot impact the forward lean. The ones that are inserted inside the boot stiffen the flex. There are also two positions for the flex stiffeners. Lots of stuff to play with to dial in your boots...

The shims that are inserted inside the boot act more like flex travel limiters than anything. The boot will flex the same as always until the heel internals compress into the shim, after which the boot stiffens significantly.
The boots come with a wide and a narrow shim, and a high and a low mounting point. That gives you four combinations of travel. Inserting the wide shim in the lowest position gives you the smallest range of travel, basically locks the forward flex of the boot.
If you want stiffer flex all-around, replace the tongue with a "B" flex model (look at the stamp inside - the ones that ship with the Rampages are a "C" flex) According to the shop guy I spoke to, they haven't made an "A" flex yet.
