    WFT (Wanted for Tinkering): Some Lupo Bits

    Planning to do some Frankenbooting with a Lupo, and I'm looking for a donor boot or parts. Hoping someone has the goods in their junk pile. Payment in beer or maybe a trade of the "my old stuff for your old stuff" variety could work too.

    Specifically interested in finding the cuffs that came on the AX 115 (yellowish cuff in the pic). Something similar, or maybe even identical, came on the ladies AX 110 too (blue cuff). Best I can tell this particular cuff design only came on those two boots. The cuff that came on the old Lupo SP (which I think is the same as the cuff on the Lupo T.I.) is similar but not the same and it isn't quite what I'm looking for.

    If boot size matters, I need the cuff to work on a 26.5 clog. I'm not sure if Dalbello uses the same cuff across different sizes or if each boot size has its own proportionately sized cuff.

    I'm also looking for a couple of the 8 degree forward lean shims from a Krypton if anyone has any extras lying around.

    I have a pair of the blue ones, 120 flex, in 26.5 that are a bit beat but still fully functional. I can't stand them and don't use them anymore. Any use to you?

    Sadly Wakefield has the AX 120 which does not have the full wrap cuff. Bumping for the hoarders buried under a pile of used up AX 115's.

    Here's a pic with the various Lupos from that time. You can see that only the AX 115 (bottom middle) and AX 110 (bottom right) have the full wrap style cuff. AX 120 (bottom left) and the rest all have the cuff style that comes on all Lupos now. Always been curious why Dalbello would bother making this cuff and only using it on two models, and then only running those models for a couple of years (or maybe even just one year?), but there you have it.

    I can verify the lupo SP cuff does work. Have had this mod for a few seasons

    It works as in it fits, but the SP had the old walk mode. I had the SP and found the walk mode almost useless. The ID wrap liner might have had something to do with that but im still trying to avoid that earlier walk mode

    That said, do you find that the full cuff makes a big difference (sorry for getting a little tech talky in the gear swap)?

    I do find that the full cuff skis better. I was coming from multiple kryptons and this definitely felt more familiar.

    What's that you say? You just cracked the shell of your AX 115's and now you need to get rid of them to make space in the gear closet? I'm here to help.
