The Carbonio version of the TLT7 is the new high-end model featuring a carbon-fiber cuff-stiffener. Dynafit switched to lower cost Titantex fiber on the Performance version, leaving an opening for a new boot with full-carbon performance. The Carbonio boots feature the same new UltraLock 3.0 design that combines the upper and lower buckles into one switch. Dynafit has done away with the removable tongue system in the TLT7, opting for a simpler design that retains much of the tongued ski performance and the un-tongued walkability. The result is a boot that weighs less than a kilogram and will take you wherever you want to go.
- Speed Nose* design eliminates the toe welt and improves climbing efficiency.
- UltraLock 3.0 system also closes the lower buckle via a specially routed cable.
- Carbon-fiber lambda frame is a cuff stiffener in lateral and forward directions.
- Toe pins closer to the ball of your foot means the most ergonomic stride yet.
- Master Step inserts are easier to step in and stronger for handling big skis.
- Performance light liner is a lightweight design that breaths and stays warm.
- Snow Dynamics concept is a shape tailored for plowing through powder.
* Note: The nose eliminates the traditional toe bail so a special adapter is needed for automatic crampons.

Questions & Reviews
Can you tell me if the shell on the TLT7 Carbonio is the exact same size as that of the TLT7 Expedition? I only have access to try on the Expedition model locally, and it fits me well at 27.5. I just want to make sure that I can safely order the same size in the Carbonio...
The Expedition boot has the thickest liner out of the three, with the Carbonio and Performance having the same liner. If warmth is your priority, maybe consider getting some boot gloves. They are great for adding warmth without having to alter your boots, and they work.
I'm very interested in this boot. I've tried it and it's hard to say which size I am. In the 26.5 my longer left foot hits the front of the boot in walking mode. In the 27, I float a bit.
No the liners haven't been heated.
Would you try to punch the front of the boot or use thicker soles and likes to make the bigger boot more snug?
"Grilamid® lower shell is still the best combination of weight and rigidity, and can be punched".
Lastly- I think in one of the questions on the TLT7 performance you mention (or else someone does elsewhere) that the TLT7 isn't as stiff as the TLT 6 with the black tongue in. Since I only use the black tongues (and wish for a bit more power) I was hoping that Carbonio may be stiffer than TLT6 w/ black tongue...
