new(ish) flexon based touring boots

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Seems like Dalbello (already) and Full Tilt (18/19 season) will be offering "freetour" boots based on the raichle flexon design concepts and lasts. Dalbello Lupo TI (tech insert) is already out.
As someone who finds flexons the perfect fit I'm pretty excited. Either of these looks like a really good option for most of my skiing (lift served, side-country, short tours rather than 1000m skinning days).

Anyone had any experience of the Lupo's? Seem to get decent reviews.

Also check out Roxa (the guys that actually make Full Tilts - or certainly used to):

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@altis,
apparently their are Lupo models in both 98mm and 100mm lasts
As you say the full tilts seem to be on the 100mm last
I've only skied the 98mm classic last so I'm thinking the Lupo might be the place to start.
Those Roxa's look to be more of a classic touring boot (95 flex) than a freetour boot (Lupo is in 110-130 flex)

... and I'm not sure they are flexon-based as they have an overlap cuff (more like Scarpa and Dynafit touring boots)

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Earlier versions were more obviously Flexon-derived. No idea if they were told to change or that they think the newer versions are better.

I've moved on to Dynafit TLT5s now. Similarly narrow but with a bit more room around the toes. Nothing like the drive of the Flexons though.
