    Looking to upgrade stock liner in my Lupo AXs as they are way too soft. Fit has been great out of the box with no mods necessary. Looks like I can score a deal on the Max Lite liners out of Lupo Pro HD or a Tour Wrap. Goal is to make the boot warmer and hopefully stiffen it up a bit. I'm using the boot as a 50/50 boot for easy tours and inbound skiing. Anybody skiing either of these liners?

    I doubt the Max Lite liner will do much to stiffen up the boots given that it has flex zones/notches in both the front and back of the ankle area. Check out Blister's review of the Pro HD. They test the boots with a variety of tongue-liner combos, and reading through it looks like you'll either need a stiffer tongue or a Pro Wrap liner to stiffen up the boot. As much as the stock liners suck, a stiffer tongue is the easier, cheaper, more versatile option IMO.

    Got it. Unfortunately, finding the stiffer tongues has been really difficult.

    Oh bummer. You could probably mod a pair of Full Tilt tongues to fit. I did that a few years ago on a pair of Dalbello Sherpas to stiffen them up. Worked really well.

    I think I'm going to try this as it's almost impossible to find Dalbello tongues. Do you remember which FT tongues you used? Looks like they come in 2 different types - FTE (which fit Ascendant/Evolution boot shell) or FTS/FTO (Soul/Original Boot shell). The FTS/FTO is the one with the more pronounced ribs.

    Anyone ever have issues with the tongue bolts (for lack of a better term)? Mine seem ok to date, but it looks like the plastic that holds them could be buckling and potentially break if I got too far forward while skinning.

    Broke the cuff on my new lupo HD boots last week while skiing. Same thing happened to my lupo SP boots a few seasons ago. Still waiting to hear back from Dalbello about getting them warrantied. Anyone know a dalbello rep in the tahoe area?

    Did the plastic break or was it the metal? Warranty experience? Have you checked in with dalbello?

    Now actually using them this seems to be a pretty obvious design flaw and I donít see the fix as being easy to remedy since itís not an easily replaceable part.

    It was the plastic that broke, the metal bit didn't even bend. TBH i haven't been in contact with Dalbello or the shop I bought them from yet but I'm going to chat with the shop today

    Got this sorted through a great local shop. Anyone else breaking cuffs? Luckily I kept my lupo factories as a backup till i get a replacement cuff.

    Best way to increase forward lean just cutting up a shim from the krypton and screwing it into the ledge with one screw? Anyone got photos?

    I took the forward lean shims that velcro to the back of the stock liners, and screwed them into the cuff. Works perfectly.

    A few people I know have put a Fulltilt version of a shim in there with a little bit of trimming.

    Go check the carbon lupo thread, info in there.

    I did it, but it was a bit much, so then I just switched to a spoiler, but it works great shimming the ledge.
