Panterra 85 GW for ladies' features a SHELL design called Power Cage. The famous Panterra fit remains the same, but the overall shape of the outside is slimmer, and the weight is lighter yet again. By concentrating more material in some places, the power transmission to the ski's edge has been increased. But, less material in other places removes unnecessary weight. And, the walk mode as also been improved to, now offering a 50 degree range of motion.
Panterra models come with new Grip Walk soles. Grip Walk is a whole new world for any skier who walks any distance in their ski boots. Maybe a hike up to that special spot that is not lift served. Or, maybe just walking in the parking lot. Ski boots have never been this easy to walk in. Alpine soles are also included, so this boot can be used with a non GW compatible binding.
This 85 flex version of Panterra is a great intermediate to advanced ladies ski boot, with almost all the same features as the more expensive, stiffer models. Panterra 85W offers the perfect balance between performance and forgiveness, and is a good choice for any buyer who is moving up from a beginner level, softer flexing boot.
The heart of the Panterra's design is Dalbello's well proven Cabriolet design with THREE important features. (1) The forward flex and lateral stiffness are separated from each other, (2) the location of the innovative Dynalink buckle holds the foot down and back in the shell better than any other buckle system on the market, and (3) the lower cuff hinge points allow a very natural movement of the leg fore and aft. Panterra offers a 3 piece shell design in a roomier, more mainstream fit than found in the lower volume KR series, with the same Power Cuff design with super low hinge points, and the same Dynalink instep buckle to lock the foot down and back.
Here is a full list of the features found on the Panterra 85W:
• All new Power Cage shell design
• Three piece Cabriolet engineering
• Contour 4 Shell Fit
• New, lighter weight INFRAN shell material -
• Dynalink center buckle
• Rocker Balanced Stance
• Ski-Hike mechanism
• Adjustable forward flex adjustment
• Billet aluminum micro adjustable buckles
• Canting adjustment
• InstaFit Performer Liner
How does the Panterra 85W fit? The overall shape of the boot fits medium to slightly wider than an average volume foot. Width is average, the toe box is roomy and the heel pocket is nice and snug. The instep is slightly HIGHER than many overlap boots, and the upper cuff is a bit SHORTER (shorter yet if the spoiler is removed) and snug. If you have average to wider feet, an average to higher instep, or larger calves, this will be a great choice for you.
