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-punched. Dynafit is now asking, “what if you could have it all?” The Hoji Pro Tour delivers impressive walking capabilities with a ski mode that will make you feel like you’re at the resort. Literally zero play in the ski/walk mechanism! The Hoji Lock is an ingenious Grilamid spoiler combined with a powerful throw lever that create massive contrast between walk mode and ski mode. You’ll find yourself removing the liner just to watch it work, wondering how you didn’t think of it. Walking resistance literally moves out of the way when you open the throw. Further, the Speed Nose is shaped to plow through powder while the the toe-fittings slide back to enable a more natural stride. This saves energy and eliminates the “diving-fin” effect that some boots with large toe welts produce. When you get to the top of the face, reverse the throw and it’s game-on. The spoiler and lever lock in a way that leaves no wiggle-room. The Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour is the free-ride concept we’ve been waiting for. If you’re lucky enough to fit it well (the boot is very wide upfront yet low volume over the foot), your prayers have been answered.
Progressive forward flex is capable of driving huge skis at speed in any condition.
Hoji Lock is clean, crisp, and incredibly powerful ski/walk mode mechanism.
Ultra-Lock power strap uses a cam-lock design for precision control.
Speed Nose offers a more natural stride and trail-breaking prowess.
Cool Cramp-In system is a simple, secure, and fast crampon attachment design.
Hi, this boot fits so nicely with nice forward lean and flex but what is the issue in the toe area?...limiting movement with some bindings?..y/n?
Stephen, Always nice to find a boot that fits and it is a stiff boot. Are you referring to the lack of the toe. That is Dynafits Speed Nose design. So won't work with frame bindings or the Shift. If you are using one of those the New Hoji Free is now here and will work with any type of binding. Hoji Free
Howdy Skimo, my question regarding the Hoji Pro Tour relates to sizing. My left foot measures a 27.3 mm while my right is a 26.6 mm. I have been wearing a 27.5 TLT6-Performance for 3+ years now, but have a butterfly patch on my shorter foot, along with a bontex insole to take up the space.
Do you recommend the 27.5 or the 26.5? Thanks a ton for your help!!!
Doug, That is a bit hard to answer with just that info. Please fill out our boot fitter boot fitter What I can say is the Hoji would be about as wide as the TLT6 , but a bit lower volume.
Unbelievable boot. Lock the walk mode and you're ready to go. The 11 degree forward lean is a godsend for me. Most boots range from 15-18 degrees. They make me feel like I'm skiing in high heels; not the Hojis. Heels down with a balanced stance
I would compare the fit to the old Dynafit Mercury. To bad they got rid of that boot. Wide in the toe and narrow in the heel. Both these boots have a great 3 buckle alignment that keeps your heel down.
What else? With the "Speed Nose" they removed the toe welt and moved the pivot point back a bit. Better for skinning, climbing and skiing. Why? Your toes are closer to the tip of the boot. Which is more natural for walking and also allows you to initiate your turn underfoot.
One thing I would like to see is a removable tongue for long approaches. With the way they have it set up right now, it wouldn't take much to design a pin system. Thanks Dynafit.
Just got them. Haven’t hit the backcountry yet but the fit is amazing. Just added my own insoles. The construction is impressive and simple to switch from walk to ski. These boots really lock down in ski mode. Best fitting boot I’ve ever owned.
Hey Allen! That depends on a ton of different variables. The fact that you have two different sized boots from the same manufacturer makes me a little bit hesitant to recommend a certain size in this boot without getting more info from you, especially since the Hoji fits so very differently from both of the boots you're currently in. Send our boot fitting fairies an email and I'll be able to give you a more educated answer.
