De-Stink The Stink

It’s that time of year again. The temperature is starting to rise (oh nooooo…) and your feet sweat like no one’s business when they are stuffed inside your thick and warm ski boot liners all day. I use thin synthetic socks when I ski, and they hold plenty of wrank foot odor on their own. […]

Guess Who’s Boots: Modified Dynafit TLT5

Had the day off today, but turned out to be pretty busy…after shredding 7K’ of awesomely fast untracked powder, of course. One of my “extra tasks” today was to help a fellow skier bring his modified Dynafit TLT5 boots back up to par and replace some blown rivets with T-nuts. And when I say modified…I […]

Side-By-Side: Dynafit Vulcan and TLT5 AT Boots

Click all photos for larger image. Since Outdoor Retailer, I’ve been able get a couple ski tours in using the much anticipated Hoji-boot, AKA the Dynafit Vulcan, for next season. The Vulcan tours great and skis even better, as the cuff and flex pattern is very stiff. There were some parts of the boot that […]

Propulski…Spring Loaded Dynafits

Le…Propulski. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone had the guts to try something like this.  Introducing…Propulski!  (English only readers, click here for Google translated web page.) Coming out of France, Propulski is a removable spring that is used with tech AT bindings (seems like they might work with some telemark […]

Ski Rigs…Slow and Hot Wheels

If you are in the market for a new ski rig, here are two completely different sides of the spectrum that just might fit the bill…depending on if you want to be the first, or the last, to the trailhead. The vehicle above is a tracked version of the popular VW vans from the 60s. […]

Maruelli Radical Binding Upgrade

So far, I’ve been having success with the pin upgrade for the Dynafit Radical bindings.  I’ve had zero auto-rotations with the heel-piece since swapping out the pin, and no cracks or brakes have developed in the plastic housing.  I’ve heard Dynafit is still working out another fix for the problem that will be worked into […]

More OR: Arc’teryx, Dri-Down, La Sportiva, Pamoca, Ortovox

Today is my last day at the trade show and I’m headed back to Jackson. With 36” of new snow in the past couple days and 4-6’ avalanche crowns being reported, the drive should be interesting. Luckily there looks to be lull in the action this afternoon and tonight, before the snow ramps up again […]

Demo Day Highlights: Dynafit, Voile, G3

Pretty uneventful drive down to the Outdoor Retailer All Mountain Demo this morning. It was blowing sideways when I left Jackson, but seemed to taper off once I got further away from the Tetons. They could definitely use some more of the white stuff here in SLC…to cover up all the city shit, never mind […]

The Huascaran…Dynafit’s New F12 Landfish

Click all photos for larger image. Remember when Dynafit was known for making ultra-skinny and short skis for rando’ers that liked to spoon tight wiggle turns and put in low angle skin tracks? Well, they still make skis for that, but for next fall, Dynafit will add a new stick its collection called the Huascaran […]

Dynafit Radical Binding New Heel Pin Upgrade

To-Pin or Not-To-Pin…that is the question. (And I don’t mean telemark.) Alas, after a couple weeks in limbo, Dynafit has now released the new Radical binding heel-pin upgrade. The pin is made of brass and has a skinny end, as well as a think end with a small ring indented into it.  When installing the […]

No Fogging with Bausch + Lomb FogShield

There is nothing more annoying (well, maybe there are some things more annoying, but…) than having to pull your sunglasses off, or away from, your face because they have fogged up. Clearing your lenses of fog and moisture, and bringing them back to shape for clear and crisp vision also tends to be a huge […]

Plum Guide and Dynafit Radical Tech Binding Woes?

In the world of AT tech bindings, not only are there new “players” entering into the market every year (mainly copying many of Dynafit’s expired patents), companies like Dynafit are continually pushing binding designs and innovation to make the bindings we use…better. While companies attempt to test their products to the full extent prior to […]

Maximizing Walk-Mode ROM of the Black Diamond Quadrant

I don’t know if it is because here in the Tetons we often have a lot of flat-ish terrain to cover before we really start skinning uphill, but I’ve really become a fan of a large range of motion in the cuffs of my AT boots. I often ski wearing Dynafit TLT5 Performance boots, which […]
