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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Dynafit Speed Radi-Vert FT…Best of Both Worlds?

Too many Dynafit options is a good thing. Like you, I often struggle to decide what bindings I want to mount on which skis and it kills me when there are so many great options out there. On some skis, lightweight is the most important factor, but for other skis, having a bit more boot [...]

Bike/Run Transition Time

Since I turned the big four-oh this past June, I figured I’d change things up a little this summer, go easy on my body and take a break from the pounding trail running puts on the joints, mainly my knees and back. To do that, I bought a new mountain bike (Giant Anthem X29er) early [...]

Dynafit TLT5 Performance Redux

There were two items that I really looked forward to receiving and using last year. One was the 2011/12 Black Diamond Carbon Justice skis, and the other some “magic elf boots”, AKA the Dynafit TLT5 Performance AT boot. The Justices will be arriving on shop shelves in the next month or two (and is bound [...]

New Footwear and Features from Dynafit and Salewa

As a retailer, it’s amazing to see all the new companies entering the footwear business every year and fighting for the same chunk of the consumer pie. This summer, Salewa, parent company to Dynafit, entered the US market and next summer, Dynafit itself will come to the plate with a new trail runner called the [...]

CAMP Race 290 Tech-Binding Compatible Crampons

Well, it’s a wild ride down here at the Summer Outdoor Retailer in SLC once again and I’m very busy with appointments for the shop. There are a record number of both vendors and retailers attending this year’s show and it’s quite crowded and hectic as usual. CAMP Race 290 tech-compatible crampons. Click all photos [...]

Hoji-fit

It was recently announced that Matchstick Productions fame Eric Hoji Hjorleifson is teaming up with Dynafit to make a new freeride edition AT boot. Hoji was featured skiing on Dynafit in many MSP video clips in the past couple years and his style, skill and what he has been able to do on Dynafit bindings [...]

Rando on the Radical FT

A couple weeks ago, I was able to do a fair bit of ski touring on the new 2011 Dynafit Radical FT binding due out this fall. Dynafit touts the Radical FT as a true step-in tech binding and includes it in it’s FreerideTouring category of bindings.  The Radical FT has many nice improvements that [...]

Dynafit 2011 Radical FT Binding Spy Photos

Thanks to Alpenglow Sports in Lake Tahoe for these photos. I received some Dynafit spy photos from Alpenglow Sports in Lake Tahoe via Faceplant yesterday and it looks like the company is going big and burly for the 2011-12 season with the new Radical Binding series. With stiffeners, dampeners, easier entry, a new crampon attachment [...]

Skin Steeper, Lighter and In Style With B and D Ski Gear

The cat’s meow in heal plates and cones. My busy holiday work schedule is just about wrapped up and I’m psyched to start getting a bit more free time to go skiing. (It just needs to warm up a little now.) In preparation for the rest of the ski season, I’ve been remounting my ski [...]

Santa Came Late, But I've Been a Very Good Boy!

Thank You Santa! Santa was a little late to the party this year, but I knew I had been a good boy last year and I was expecting a delivery. Thankfully, ye old Kris Kringle (disguised in a brown suit this year) didn’t let me down and delivered this tasty treat for my feet. Yes [...]

Transitioning Between AT Ski Setups

I know many of you out there probably have quite the quiver of rando skis and maybe a few pairs of boots. I know I do. They range from a 5 lb/foot (ski, boot, binding) old-school Dynafit race setup, to a more than 10 lb Black Diamond/Dynafit hybrid. I ski on both setups quite often [...]

They're Here…Dynafit DyNA Randonne Boots!!!

So…rumor has it there are only a handful of the new Dynafit DyNA rando racing boots in the states this year (click here for 3D view), but low and behold, since I’ve been back in Jackson (about 3 weeks now) I’ve seen three pairs of them. And not just in a box on the shelf. [...]
