If you appreciate innovation and free speed, then pay close attention; the future is here. Dynafit’s partnership with Pierre Gignoux, a highly decorated French skimo racer and mad boot-scientist, has been fruitful. The DNA Pintec boot is a wonder to behold.
Pintec is an entirely new tech-system that enables crazy weights, super-fast transitions, and better responsiveness. Take the traditional Dynafit toe and heel system and flip it inside out: that’s the Pintec system. The toe of the boot features two spring-loaded cartridges, one on each side, that stick outward and slide into the recessed holes in the binding. The binding toe is incredibly simple with scarcely a moving part; just a solid block of aluminum. The heel uses a small ramp to force the heel piece open which then snaps shut for secure skiing while still allowing for lateral release.
The new binding system is hogging the spotlight, but the DNA race boot remains one of the most advanced and highest performing boots on the market. Use it on small skis, use it on big skis, use it when the temperature plummets, use it for summer skiing, use it anywhere you please. Just promise not to kick too many rocks with the carbon fiber shell. The DNA Pintec boot is perfect for those of us that enjoy skiing more vertical feet per week than an average resort skier.
