Hey Ben, yes, you could definitely size down with the power strap to get a tighter fit! The other option would be to set your strap a screw-hole shorter than the stock two-hole connection (though in this setting you might still run out of strap).
What width are these power straps? I need to replace the straps on my Scarpa T1 telemark boots. The original straps are 1.25 inches wide. The strap has to fit through a plastic piece so if your straps are wider than that I don't know it they would work. Thanks.
John, I just measure the TLT 7 power strap and it comes in at 1.25 inches. So it should work fine. The TLT 8 power straps measure right at 1 inch.
Looking to throw a powerstrap on my alien RS like the previous comment described. Looks like you're out of the medium sized straps. Any idea if you will be getting more of these in stock or would I be ok with the smaller size? I am in a 27 alien. Thanks!
Hi guys. I'm looking to add TLT 7 power straps to my size 29.0 Scarpa Alien RS boots (per Brian H.'s helpful blog). What size straps should I get? I have skinny calves and like to crank down on power straps. I am not sure if the Dynafit size 29.0 - 30.5 straps will be too long, if their cuff sizing is not comparable to Scarpa's, if that makes sense. Thanks.
Hey Jim, good call on the power strap addition! You will find the 29.0-30.5 TLT powerstraps to be about the right diameter, but if you want to crank down on the straps more, the 26.0-28.5 may work even better. Happy modding.
Looking to add some power to my pair of original Aliens (the all plastic version) without going back to the included velcro straps...would a pair of the TLT7 powerstraps applied via a drilled modification do the trick?
I see Mercury velcro strap only in the description, but not the drop down.... figure that means you're out? Seems like it should be fairly standard though... have recommencations on different strap that'll work. Not picky over color or style.
Hi Erik, yes we are out of stock, likely for good. Generally you can fit any powerstrap to any boot if you're comfortable putting holes in things. I use the TLT7 strap on several boots as the quick release system is nice.
I have a pair of TLT7 Performance boots and wish to add the same power strap that comes on the expedition model to them. Do the power straps come with the screws/rivets to mount? Has anybody done this/have you found an effective way to mount these?
I bought these tlt7 power straps to add to a different boot, and while the cam buckle system is really convenient, I can't figure out how to keep them from slipping. Even in mild carpet testing, it slips a half cm or so, enough that it's really not as supportive as you'd expect. Is there a trick to this?
Thanks for the reply. I don't have them on the boots a.t.m. so can't take a picture, but I'm pretty darn sure they were on correctly. I suppose you could mount them inside out if you put your mind to it, but then the pull string would be inaccessible so you'd figure it out quickly.
Also, it seems like pushing firmly on the "pull to release" text above the teeth does a good enough job of seating the teeth better than the spring can to mostly solve the problem, at least for me. Hopefully as the strap breaks in it'll get more flexible and this won't be necessary.
Hi, I've got some Dynafit Mercury's (27.5) with the old Velcro power strap. I'd like to replace those with the quick release power strap that I've seen on newer model Dynafits. Do you have a pair of those available?
Hey Patrick, thanks for reaching out! The hole pattern on Dynafit's powerstraps changes all the time so "No" is a safe assumption, though I believe it's the same as the Mercury/Vulcan powerstraps. You can always get the powerstrap you want and just pop a rivet through it.
Hi, do you have (or think you'll be getting hold of) the power strap from the 2nd gen TLT6's? And would it be possible to retro fit them to the first gen TLT6? I'm wondering if they add some extra support and would add to the downhill performance without adding too much weight? Thanks!
The hole pattern should be the same between the 1st gen and 2nd gen, so I think they are compatible. However, the issue is that we haven't been able to order those power straps for a long time and I doubt we'll see any of them again.
Any chance of getting some of the new Dynafit power straps in stock for purchase? The newer camming straps with the quick release tab are sweet. I have some of the radical boot straps (via warranty) and they work nicely as an after-market addition to any boot. They have a single mounting hole in the back and work with scarpa and the new backlands boots very nicely. The newer TLT6 straps look similar but not sure how they mount. Unfortunately they won't sell any of these individually to consumers. Skimo seems possible of obtaining any and all Dynafit spare parts however.
