Dynafit Blacklight Boot

  Size Chart

If the TLT 8 is Dynafit’s Mozart (classical, virtuosic, precedent-setting), then the Blacklight is their Beethoven (dark, striking). Okay, maybe we’ve lost you, but we’re just really excited about this boot! Like the TLT X, the Blacklight takes what worked from the TLT 8, such as the simple ultra lock system and above-average volume fit, while also improving walking range of motion, reintroducing the toe welt, and securing heel hold via a Twistfit instep closure. The Blacklight also sports a full carbon cuff and carbon-infused Grilamid lower shell. Paired with a hyperflexible tongueless flex in walk mode, the result is a boot that walks like a race boot with the power transfer of a touring boot. For aggressive skiers, professional mountaineers, speed tourers, and everyone in between, the Dynafit Blacklight is sure to make a splash.

  • Ultra Lock 5.0 integrates the ski/walk mechanism with the top buckle for efficient transitions.
  • Carbon cuff and carbon-loaded Grilamid shell excel at transferring power at a low weight.
  • Twistfit closure system locks the foot from the instep to the heel creating a precise and secure fit.
  • Pomoca soles are grippy and durable.
  • Toe and heel welts compatible with automatic crampons.
  • Generous last width for a more comfortable fit.
  • Five-year “lifetime” guarantee.
  • Includes optional velcro powerstrap.

Questions & Reviews

Question from James
I got a pair of these (not from skimoco as Europe) and really like them, simple and efficient. Great to walk in and go up I find them warm. Not moulded them as felt ok out box and bought 285 with 287 feet

My question is, on one foot they're causing the top over the medial cuneiform to be sore on skinning up, not when coming down, sort of just under where the boa is, loosening or tightening it doesn't relieve, stock insoles. Oddly I thought both feet are same arch and instep. Any idea what I can do to try relieve this? Mould innerboot and tighten at this point? Different innerboot?

Answer from James h
Actually, looking better with the bootie out, I think the elastic on it is the issue, right over point of issue, reckon I can just cut this to releave pressure?

Question from Seth
I see a lot of references to the TLT X. Is this going to have an identical fit to the TLT X? I am more concerned with volume/width. The TLT X fits real nice in 29.5, but I'd like something a little stiffer.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Seth,

The Dynafit Blacklight will have a nearly identical fit to the TLT X. However, the carbon cuff with stiffen and lighten things up. If you have further fit questions, feel free to reach out to!

Question from Ash G
Is this boot a good fit for a wider foot? I am currently using the TLT8 Carbonio. TLT8 Carbonio and the Radical Pro were few of the only boots that would fit my wide forefoot so trying to understand how this boot fits compared to the TLT8 Carbonio? I have also had the TLT8 punched out. Can the same be done to this boot?
Answer from Jeff
Hello Ash,
So you have our two widest boots. The all new TLT X shell is not quite as wide. Dynafit says they have a 101mm last. And they come with a thin 5mm thick liner. Which is similar to the Carbonio, thinner then the Expedition. The carbon infused Grilamid plastic is punchable, but not a lot.
If you are looking for a better hiking boot, the new Zero G Peak is rather roomy and can take a punch. Might be worth a look.
Answer this question:

Question from Jon M
Can the Backlight scafo take a punch?
If so, would it be more than the minimal (2mm) for the ZeroG Peak?
Answer from eric
Jon- The lower scafo of the Blacklight can take a punch nicely. It is somewhat limited on how much with the carbon infused Grilamid as it tends to rebound quite a bit.

Question from Parker Smith
Do you know the fore foot width? Last? Wondering if they will fit my awkward wide feet!
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Parker. The stated last is 101mm. Please keep in mind that this number is size-dependent, though. Typically, manufacturers use a 26.5 (for unisex boots) when they reference last. If you go up from 26.5, add 2mm for every size. If you go down, then subtract 2mm.

Question from Marc H
How's the fit length-wise compared to a Scarpa Alien RS and Hoji Free? I'm a 28 in the Scarpa, a 27.5 in the Hoji and trying to decide which way to go with the Blacklight...

Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Marc, I just tried on these boots side by side(substituting the TLT X for the Blacklight that we haven't received yet), and I'd recommend the 27.5 Blacklight! The length should be similar to your Hoji Free, but the Blacklight might have slightly more width.
Answer from Marc H
Perfect. Thanks for your help

Question from Nick Brown
Would this be the modern replacement for my now almost dead (slop in pivot and worn sole/toe) though brilliant TLT6P?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Nick! This is the modern replacement of the TLT6 Performance, TLT7 Carbonio, and TLT8 Carbonio. It should be noted it will have a different fit than all the aforementioned boots. If you want something that fits similarly to the TLT6, the Speedfit Pro would be worth a look!

Question from Travis N
Downhill performance comparison to Sportiva Skorpius or Salomon MTN Summit?
Answer from Brett S
Hey Travis, most would probably find the Skorpius to have the best feel on the downhill (though the MTN Summit and Blacklight are no slouches, either). It should be noted that the "best boot is the one that fits your foot" from within the category you're interested in. So, if you have a lower/medium volume foot, the Skorpius would be the best option. If you have a wider foot, either the MTN Summit or Blacklight could work quite well!
