For the hard charging skier who regularly ventures into the sidecountry and the backcountry, the fine folks down at Dynafit have for you the Hoji Free, a quiver-of-one freeride touring boot that is compatible with both alpine and tech bindings. If you plan to spend most of your time skiing out of backcountry trailheads, we recommend you either hit that preseason training program especially hard and develop some serious stamina, or maybe consider one of our purely backcountry touring boots, found here. However, for folks who ride the chairlift as often as they hit the skin track, the Hoji Free is hands down one of the best options out there. With a wide range of motion and flexible v-shaped tongue, you'll be outpacing all your pals who are wearing true alpine boots with "walk" modes, while you zip along out front. On the descent, the 130 flex index rating of the Hoji Free feels indistinguishable from an alpine boot, where three buckles and a stout power strap offer all the security you need to ski as hard as you can. Fully moldable liner ensures that even the pickiest of feet can be made to feel great in these boots after a quick visit to the shop.

  • Unique to the Hoji line is the Hoji Lock, a ski/walk lever system which adds tension to the upper strap and buckle when in ski mode, while removing that tension in walk mode.
  • UN EN ISO 9523 compatible, meaning that this boot works with tech bindings as well as touring frame bindings and alpine bindings with adjustable toe height.
  • Quick Step In means that precarious transitions are simpler and easier for you to get through without getting too puckered.
  • Full size toe and heel welts means you can use automatic crampons for booting up icy couloirs.
  • Fully moldable shell and Sidas liner offer you all the customizable potential you could possibly want.
  • Pomoca sole will stand up to years of parking lot abuse and rocky scrambling.
  • Made in Germany.

I had the privilege of skiing this boot for the last half of last season and was really impressed with the downhill performance and great "walkability." The 55 degrees of cuff rotation is as advertised and really easy to utilize with the "Hoji-Lock" lever on the spine of the boot. The fact that the lever also loosens the cuff buckle and power strap is an added bonus and makes transitions a breeze! On the downhill, the boots hold their own against true alpine boots and I had no problems skiing them hard at the resort as well as out touring. It really is the one boot to do everything in. Despite having a quiver of boots at my disposal, I have found the Hoji Free to be my go-to for both resort and BC days. **Disclosure - I work as a rep for Dynafit**

Question from thomc
 
Has the last been normalized as compared to the initial Hoji? That is, have they reverted to the TLT, or something else?

Hey Thom! We haven't got any in to try on. The word is that it is 'normalized' as you say. Not the TLT or Hoji Pro.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Thom, as compared to the Hoji Pro, Dynafit brought the toe height down a notch and also made it a bit narrower in the forefoot. The instep was opened somewhat as well.
