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
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?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
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.
If so, would it be more than the minimal (2mm) for the ZeroG Peak?
