Dalbello Rampage or Il Moro
First off..I'm shopping last years boots to replace my beat 5 year old lange comps. I've tried the dalbellos a few times and they feel great in the shop with a few modifications. The fit is good, the second factor is cost. It seems I can get the rampage for around $249 and the il moro for around $399. What's are the major differences?
ANyone skied these boots, have suggestions?
I ride all over the mountain, probably around 50 days this season with some park, bumps, groomers, powder, etc, etc and I ski fast and charge pretty hard most of the time. I'm around 5'-9" 185lbs and a sagittarius. Thanks.

I got the same question, want to know if the il moro will hold up or if they are too soft to do any hard charging...

The thing that puts me off the il moro is that shitty ratchet thing instead of a booster strap.

Are you looking at the Il Moro I.D.? Im assuming yes
The Il Moro also comes two different tongues.... Personally I would look hard at that buckle design if you don't think its for you then get the Rampage and Buy intuitions for them. So really your looking at spending about the same either way.a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

I have the il moro's. I believe the intuition liner comes stock with the il moro (at least that was the case last year when I purchased them)? I have to admit, the ratchet strap works surprisingly well, allowing for a smooth forward flex. In my opinion, its better than a third buckle and a booster strap. I tried both the krypton pro and il moro before settling on the il moro.
I had the soft tongues in there last year, and they were a little soft for my liking, so i just got the stiffer tongues and flexing them in a warm room, they feel like they have the same stiffness as the comp 120's i had.
I would say the il moro is worth the few extra bucks. You would probably want an intuition liner in the rampages anyways.

The ID liner is worth the upgrade. I am skiing the IL Moro T and the Pros. The IL Moro is a smoother flexing boot.Click. Point. Chute.

I also ski the il moro - previously had the krypton cross. Agree that it's smoother flexing, and I also put the stiffer tongue on. Ratchet works pretty well - and after a full season, they're proving to be more durable than I thought. I highly recommend them.
The ID liners are amazing - easily 2x as comfortable and warmer than the shitty stock liners, so get those regardless.

I got the rampages in spring 07. Same thing for me, they felt good in the shop and I could get them pretty cheap on a sale. I ended up buying them. Skied about 40 days and they packed out kinda funny so i bought intuitions near the beginning of last season. Couldn't be happier. But that was before the IL Moro... you'll def. spend 120 bucks on liners (more if you get the shop to do it and buy footbeds) for the rampages.Your jambox is now his...by way of our actions

I just noticed this thread got bumped from my original post last year.
If i didnt mention it already, I DID pick up the Il Moro, swapped out thesoft gold tongue for the stiffer black.
I've put in about 65 days on the boot since then and kept everything pretty much stock. I love this boot. I just had my first real day on the hill again this season and skied around on the WROD with the buckles all loose and the boot still wraps you foot well enough to ski realitively aggressively. Really comfortable and really warm. I think I tend to abuse equipment and so far I haven't broken a single thing on this boot.
The ratchet system is so nice. I havent had any problems whatsoever. I like the ratchet because I can make micro adjustments, even through my ski pants on the lift. Anyone that says this is a park only boot is lying. I dont really ski park anymore, but dont like a super stiff race boot.
I like to think I ski pretty hard in this boot and it performs very well.

Ive had my il moro's since 2007.had to change the ratchet booster on one boot..19 bucks bfd....but I keep 2 xtras with me cause when they go your done....the strap notches wear down and when they give out it hopeless, also lovem, very comfortable and stiff enough (black tongue with stiff forward tilt setting)to drive my ants 191.....hammer the moguls

just .02 on the ratchet, i love that thing! It is really sweet. I also went through a ratchet but my shop replaced it N/C. I have just about 60 days since last december 08 and I just replaced the OEM gold Id's with Intuition supplied Power Wraps. A huge difference in the dalbello spec'd liner and the Intuition's. Huge!

What tongue (s) come on the Rampage. I may be a big pussy, but I was flexing the Rampage in the store today, and wouldn't want it much stiffer....I really like to feel my boot flexing almost to the point of feeling the fold... it may have been the "C" Tongue?
What are the letter values on the two tongues that come with the il Moros....
I'm interested in both, but see that the rampage is geared toward park...is there anything other than the soft tongue that makes it a park boot?
59 PU (rampage) vs 62 material (il moro)----anyone comment?
And if the softer tongue on the il Moro is the C tongue, than the only difference is intuition liners correct?Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?
fuck that noise.

The Il Moros come with a B and C tongue.

The IL Moro T comes with 2 tongues.
If you have "chicken legs", it is tough to the the IL Moro ratchet tight enough, the traditional cuff might be better there. As far as the flex of the tongue, this has a lot to do with dorsal range, if you have limited range, then you need a stiffer set up.Click. Point. Chute.
