The upgraded Speedfit Pro from Dynafit gets you up in the mountains without needing to leave a painfully large chunk of your wallet behind at the shop. With the same fit as the much revered TLT6 line, the boot is optimized for performance, ease of use, and reliability-- enough for many seasons of skiing. The Speedfit Pro offers similar skiing and walkability to the more expensive and carbon-heavy TLT8, in a narrower last. The big upgrade in this version versus the Speedfit is a cuff material, meant to stiffen up the downhill performance when the boot is cinched and buckled down. A burly, quick-release power strap alongside a simple and efficient two-buckle closure system make for fast transitions. With a standard toe lug housing the tech inserts, these boots come ready for automatic crampons, and the soft flex tongue makes for easy skinning on the way up while providing stout support on the way down. Built for on and off-piste touring alike, the TLT Speedfit Pro comes ready for whatever the season throws your way.
- The Titantex fiber cuff is a titanium-infused glass that takes makes an affordable top-end boot that performs while climbing and descending.
- The tried and true Ultra Lock System 2.0 gets you a quick and easy ski/walk lever system, so there's no fiddling with your boots at the top--just skiing.
- A minor feature though it may be, the Ultra Lock Strap has glove-friendly, quick-release as well as a stitched 'speed bump' so you don't over-release your strap.
- Non-removable Flex Tongues simplify life, and save you a world of trouble on windy days-- boot tongues have been known to be blown while unsecured for even the briefest of moments.

Questions & Reviews
My go to boot for a decade now has been the TLT5 and then the TLT6. I have skied a good many of the usual suspects for a similar style boot that have come and gone or revamped since. Still a TLT6 fan. Been skinning a -lot- this season. Which eventually had me skinning and then skiing in a TLT6 P without the tongues. Until this winter I had never used a power strap on any of my Dynafit boots. But an experiment of switching to liners with a beefer tongue for my old PDGs made me rethink the PDG boot. Hard tongue and a good power strap might just make a decent ski out of the PDG. Indeed, they were with a bump proof inner boot, stiff tongue and a tight power strap. With that result, and always being afraid I'll lose or simply forget a TLT6 tongue during a transition, I simply stopped skiing with the tongues and added a power strap to my 6s. With that a success as well (I have hard tongue liners in my 6's too) No additional tongue in a TLT6 made me rethink this boot (The Speedfit Pro) as a every day ski boot. Easier in and out of the boot, 1/2# lighter for the pair in my size, and just less pfaff all around to deal with. For me it turned out to be a perfect combo once the liners were beefed up. The SF Pro, with only a inner boot mod) skis every bit as good as my TLT6s (Halloween or Green versions) when using the same inner boot mod and either the additional stiff or soft tongue. Adding the Power strap, a stiff inner boot tongue to the boot make the Speedfit Pro ski pretty much like any TLT P. Which is saying a lot IMO. No caveats for the Pro. It is a nice boot. A really nice boot for the $. Just my take on it, as the Speedfit Pro and old TLT6 P boots really are that similar. Wider last of the Speedfit Pro aka Halloween TLT6 P also makes for a slightly warmer boot for me. Warmer, a significant weight drop, same performance as my favorite boots? What is not to like? Well if you have to ask? Black! Who really likes a black boot? Not me. Spray paint is always an option :)
I also find the materials very soft/thin, would these last a 3 week expedition?
Most people can expect 80-100 days from liners. Those liners are on the light side, but a more substantial liner will affect fit, make them snugger. If you think you can/want a thicker liner, please contact us for further assistance. firstname.lastname@example.org
Seems pretty clear that the TLT Speedfit Pro is akin to the TLT6, which to my knowledge, is a fan favorite/gold standard amongst the Dyna-Split crowd.
Any and all info would be much appreciated! Thanks.
The Dynafit Speedfit Pro has a very similar fit and feel to the TLT6. However, it will fit differently than the Mercury.
Before we get into the weeds on performance characteristics in a split board setup, I would recommend that you fill out a Boot Fitter. From there, we would be happy to point you towards a boot that will make sense in your setup!
The one negative I have found is that the thin liner has a tendency to lead to shin bang against the cuff when driving a ski. I've carpet-tested the Backland liner, which has extra cushioning in the shin, and it feels like adding cushioning to the Speedfit liner could replicate the feel. Buckling the powerstrap (which is nice, but I wish it had some elasticity) underneath the boot cuff helps prevent some of the harsh feeling since you don't flex as hard against the cuff plastic.
It's a good boot and I look forward to testing it more once I get a few punches to make it fully comfy.
