The Dalbello Quantum Free Asolo Factory is a meaty boot with a vegetarian weight. This balanced diet allows you to save energy on the skin track so you stay fresh for when it matters the most - ripping down the ski line. The two-part mid-entry cuff is easy to get into and offers an impressive range of motion to keep you efficient on the uphill. When you're ready to transition, the cuff buckle cinches everything up securely and the ski/walk lever locks into place with a spring-loaded catch, ensuring solid and reliable performance in the downhill mode. A simple pull tightens the power strap and provides additional stiffness at the top of the cuff. Whether you're speed touring or driving wider skis on a deep powder day, the Quantum Free 130 is up for the task!

  • Extra Dual Link provides a 65° range of motion.
  • Dual-density Vibram sole provides grip during ridge scrambles.
  • Bonded Shell construction is light and stiff.
  • Two dedicated buckles for increased durability and performance.
  • A full-length boot board provides better fit and insulation against cold conditions.

Question from Brian
I was looking at three boots in this range for bigger vert, longer range days, the Dynafit Radical Pro,Fischer Transalp Pro and the Dalbello Quantum Free Osolo. I tried the Dynafit Radical Pro yesterday and it had too much volume over the instep and in the forefoot. How would these compare to those and the Transalp Pro? I presently am in the Technical Zero G Pro and have achieved a good fit with some fore foot punching for width.
Answer from Zak M
Hey Brian, thanks for the question. Overall the Quantum Free 130 would fit somewhat similar to Transalp Pro and they have pretty darn similar stiffness and range of motion. I would go to say that if the Tecnica Zero G fits your foot fairly well with minimal punching the Quantum Free 130 wouldn't be too far off. Both boots are a fairly low/mid-volume fit but in my mind, after trying on both of the boots the Quantum Free 130 fits just a bit more uniformly wider and still has the ability to be punched. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Kyle S
How would you guys compare this to the F1 LT on the downhill and fit? Thanks!
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Kyle,

Compared with the Scarpa F1 LT, the Dalbello Quantum Free Asolo Factory 130 has a stiffer cuff, which will translate to more power on the way down. Also, the Asolo Factory 130 has a higher volume fit than the F1 LT. It has a wider toe box and higher instep. However, it is pretty snug in the midfoot, and using a broader comparison, is still on the narrow side of the touring boot spectrum.

Question from Andre
What is the last width?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Andre, thanks for the question. Dalbello markets the Quantum Free Asolo 130 as a 100mm last width. But like with all boots that number can vary a fair amount especially once you add a beefy liner into the equation. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Question from Eric S
Talk to me about the fit. How do they compare with my tried-and-true TLT5?

TLT5 (perhaps along with the Salomon X-Alp) is the one boot that is both narrow and long enough for me at the same time.
Answer from Zak M
Hey Eric, the Quantum Free A. 130 will fit a fair amount wider than the TLT5. Overall the fit is on the slightly narrower side but the boot feels roomier than some other truly narrow boots. The Quantum Free A. 130 does have a pretty beefy liner that comes stock with the boot so that is also something to consider.

Comment from Frederick M
FYI I just weighed the 27.5s without the spoilers installed at 2720g for the pair
Reply from jbo
Thanks Frederick! I was thinking their list weight was too high. Looking forward to getting them on the official skimo scale ;)

Question from Ben
Have y'all skied this thing yet? Curious on how it stacks up to the Technica Zero G Tour Pro?

Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Ben. While this boot is very well balanced, it won't ski as well compared to the downhill-oriented Zero G Pro Tour. It does, however, have a better usable range of motion/weight that will make it a better companion for most on big vertical days. If you're after a boot that focuses on the down, I'd go with the Zero-G Tour Pro. If you want a balanced boot that combines efficiency with a good downhill feel, the Quantum Free 130 would do nicely. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
