Dynafit is a German company that designs and manufactures a wide range of top of the line skiing equipment for both the casual backcountry skier and top of the line skimo athlete. Since the inception of the TLT binding in 1990, Dynafit has remained the first name in ski mountaineering, and their designs have been mimicked by nearly every other major ski mountaineering company there is. Skimo Co is proud to be a Dynafit Competence Center, and we are happy to be partnered with such a storied and driven brand.
Not all skimo races are sub-2-hour, anaerobic affairs. Some are more like all-day slogs that, for all but the top randonneurs, resemble long high-elevation tours more than anything. The Trofeo Mezzalama is the last of the three Grand Course races, followi..
Race skis are getting a lot more of the R&D spotlight lately. This is making for an exciting progression in downhill performance in the ski-category that historically has been the least likely to put a smile on your face. The Dynafit DNA (we are dubbi..

If Dynafit made a Venn diagram of its (non-race) ski boot lineup, one circle would feature the beloved TLT8 Expedition boot, known for being lightweight, efficient, and capable of big days in the mountains. The other circle would be the Hoji Free 130 boot..
Sometimes, it is necessary to let loose and get a little radical. While “radical” is an individualized term, Dynafit, with the introduction of the Radical Pro W, seems to think it means pillows, drops, and high-speed aprons in far out locations. To get th..
When center-punching a face at mach-speed, the benefits of a tall, stiff, and supportive boot are undeniable. Unfortunately, that usually means a boot that is too heavy, doesn’t walk well, and limits your range to faces that have already been centered-pun..

Dynafit calls the Superlite 2.0 a revolution instead of an evolution. If you like brakes then you might be inclined to agree, since the new version is the first race-weight binding with an (optional) integrated brake. It maintains the fully adjustable lat..
When we asked Dynafit team member Benedikt Böhm which binding he uses most, he immediately pointed to the Expedition. Given his casual pastime of skiing 8,000 meter peaks this came as no surprise. The Expedition's durability-to-weight ratio is about as hi..
With the young Speed Turn already turning 2.0, we officially say goodbye to the Dynafit 5-hole toe pattern. This updated iteration of the Speed turn features a simpler toe piece modeled after the Radical toes. With an elongated mounting pattern and forged..

Dynafit has taken a classic 90's expression and slapped it onto the Radical ST binding to let you know how amazing it truly is. Note that Radical should be capitalized, which is pretty much an invite for you to get Rad, something you can very much do with..
A more elegant binding for a more civilized age. The ST Rotation is the DIN certification-ready kid on the block, and it’s now one of the best choices for backcountry skiers who want to optimize for knee-protection. It’s a full-featured binding with brake..
