    Dachstein Ski Boots

    I had been eying Dachstein Ski Boots as a possible cross over boot, but don't think I'll get round to trying it. Here's a couple if anyone else is interested....

    35$ Delivered for brand new boots?? Sounds like a good value. Back in the day quite a few alpine snowboard riders used Dachstein boots. Most I think were red?? I might have a pair somewhere. If these were M29 I would buy them.

    Thanks for putting the photo up Bryan. I was thinking these might be an easy conversion to BTS

    If the slot currently housing the "Walk mode" mechanism is wide enough it looks like it would be ideal.

    I couldn't find any photos that showed more detail on the feature.

    didn't dachstein make burton's alpine boots? i guess if you wore burtons back in the day then maybe these will fit your footshape.
    my sincerest apologies if my burton ultraprime offends your alpine sensibilities. i have set up a dedicated phone line for you to lodge your complaints. if there are enough complaints i will burn all my burtons.

    for my 24 hour toll free hotline please dial:

    have a nice day

    Looks to be a 'recreational' level boot. *Probably good for starting out.
    I have one of the comp boots sitting out on the deck, if you want dimensions on the flex control pocket.

    A higher end boot.... I was originally looking at these because I read about the adjustable heels (predates the Fischer soma idea). Then I saw the spring mechanism. For me, a true cross over boot would be able to lock at a 120+ flex for skiing and then then unlock to a stiff BTS for alpine board

    After being passed along to different generations of Dachstein owners, and shifted from one parent company to the other, this fabulous ski boot company has gone the way of the Dodo.

    There seemed to be some sign of hope in the late eighties when Kneissel became a Dachstein partner, but they just fizzled. Then in 1998, Raichle Boots AG merged with the Kneissel-Dachstein family in an effort to move production away from ski boots and more towards high quality, soft shoe, hiking boots.

    This, too, failed.

    In April of 2003, though, the DeeLuxe Sport Articles Trading Ltd. picked up the trademark rights to the Kneissel Dachstein brand in the hopes of building up the boot family once again.

    That should work better, particularly if it has a dual density overlap in the front. *A spring change on the rear boot and you're good to go.
