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.

Questions & Reviews
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.
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.
