When speed is ingrained in your DNA and you've got your eyes set on the podium, the Dynafit DNA race boot is going to be your partner in speed. Carbon cuffs reduce weight and add downhill performance which combined may end up being the difference between taking first instead of second. The Twistfit closure system gives you full control of your fit so that you can have confidence and control when you need it most. As compared to the PDG 2, Dynafit swapped the Speednose for a traditional toe welt so that the DNA accepts automatic crampons. The DNA-predecessor wasn't quite as free in the range-of-motion so Dynafit focused on creating a very efficient pivot system combined with a backless liner. A medium-volume fit aims to keep your feet happy and comfortable. Allow the DNA to integrate with your genome and bask in the podium glory with the Dynafit DNA boot.
- Grilamid® lower loaded with carbon allows the boot to be stiff and light.
- Full carbon cuff to reduce weight and create a higher-performing race boot.
- Twistfit enclosure system locks over the top of the foot with precision.
- Race lock allows one motion to lock the boot in ski mode and tighten the upper cuff.
- Ingenious string system is easy to adjust for the proper calf tightness.
* Sizing Note: The DNA boot utilizes "race sizing," meaning that unlike other Dynafit boots the shell splits on the half-size, so 24.5 and 25 will have the same lower shell, for example. Also, due to the thin race liner, you will want a one-finger fit behind your heel when shell-fitting the boot.

Questions & Reviews
Also, the photo is 'Pre production' the gaiter is not that high. I have these boots to use mostly in the spring. They are plenty warm then and the air conditioning feels good on warm days. Again, a race pant will keep the snow out.
And they do ski amazingly well for a boot this light.
Getting them to fit my feet took a custom heat-molded insole, until then I was getting weird rubbing and blisters on the bony prominence of the medial side of my navicular bone (a prominence I didn't know existed until I wore these). No punches or heat molds of the boot were required, thankfully. I've found if I want to favor downhill performance, I like a little more padding, which I can achieve with an extra pair of calf socks.
The transitioning system takes a bit of knot-tying and adjusting initially, but from then on is easy, simple, fast, and secure.
Note, this boot uses Scarpa sizing, 26.5/27, but run about a size small compared to Scarpa boots.
My recommendation would be to clip them to the walk mode cable on the cuff - ideally in a spot that won't pop your boot out of ski mode should you clip out. I'd strongly recommend against using the zipper, as they aren't meant to hold up to that kind of strain.
i´m thinking of getting these for training and some ice climbing. Will it be possible to use a slightly beefier liner even if their set up with a bikini-ish. Probably give som more FW lean, but i usually miss that anyways. If it´s not completely out of the question, which liner would you recommend? warmth will be a priority over weight in most cases.
Also, is the nose big enough to give a secure fit with automatic crampons for proper WI5+ Ice climbing?
At first glance, what do you think of the DNA and blacklight pro combo?
