The new Dalbello Cabrio LV 95 W was awarded a gold medal this year by our women's test team who liked the revisions made to this alpine-centric three-piece go-everywhere boot. They liked the spiral wrapping liner for its use of recycled material and its welcoming maw, which offered a smooth and well-padded slide into and out of the boot. They liked how well the 3DensityWrap Sport W liner was pre-molded for immediate comfort without heat molding--though a few of our testers did anyway (more on that below).

The Cabrio LV 95 W got our testers' attention with its accommodating initial fit but they also liked how it got from turn to turn in reliable fashion, without surprises or drama, easily cruising the entire mountain regardless of terrain type or surface. Some of our testers, especially shorter women, mentioned that the liner extended pretty high up onto the leg, in a firm and slightly abrupt grip around the calf--those who heat molded the liner found that this remedied much of that. The fit is a generous medium width, they said, with extra room through the instep and that slightly more snug area at boot top. Tall, slender-legged skiers with a higher, thicker instep would find a dream match in the Cabrio LV 95 W, testers said.

Testers thought the 95 flex was a little spongy for hard charging, and thought that while less aggressive skiers would be dialed in the boot we tested, they suggested that more demanding descenders should step up to the 115 flex in this same model for an additional C-note.
