Question from BJT
 
Hello!

I've heard this boot may have compatibility issues with some tech bindings - do you know if it will work with the G3 Ion 12 and the La Sportiva RT?

Thanks!

Hi BJT, no problem with those! The sevens work with just about everything except for some Fritschi bindings.

Hey BJT! The TLT7 has compatibility issues with a few bindings, but almost all of them are the burlier bindings like the Fritschi Tecton/Vipec, etc. The rest of the lighter tech bindings like the RT and ION 12 shouldn't have any issues though! Just to be sure I tested the TLT7 Performance in the ION 12 and couldn't find any issues and same with the Hagan Core, which has a very similar toe piece to the RT.

Question from Anders
 
Hi, I have been thinking about getting these boots. 27.5 are great but too short. On the other hand, 28.5 feel quite sloppy. How much is it possible to punch of the shell lengthwise if I would get the smaller pair?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Anders, depending on your shell fit, the 'too short' boot might be taken care of with a liner mold. If not, it is possible (and not too hard) to punch the shell a bit lengthwise.

Question from Jeremy G
 
The widest part of my foot is roughly around the "Y" in the dynafit logo on the outside of the right boot. After a few hours in the boot this gets squeezed pretty good. Do you think I could successfully punch this out, being below the Lamda frame? Thanks.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Good eye. The Carbon Y Frame extends a bit beyond the actual carbon panel displayed on the boot, so there's even less room than it looks like you have to work with, but we have successfully punched below it before. If you end up getting the Powertrack liner, you may have to go through a less-than-pleasant heat molding process with foam on the part of your foot that you mentioned to get the excessive pressure to go away before it becomes an issue. Time will tell!

Question from Jeremy G
 
I skied a pair of these last year and overall am pretty happy. They fit pretty well in the length and width but are a bit too high volume. I was thinking of replacing the liners this season with something a tad thicker, stiffer and taller. Any recommendations?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Jeremy, thanks for reaching out! Glad you like the boots! The Intuition Pro Tour would definitely suck up the most volume. It also would offer some extra height and stiffness (most notably in the tongue). That being said, there'd be a direct tradeoff between the walking performance and descending "upgrade" you'd experience. Maybe a more appropriate liner choice though would be the Palau Powertrack 10 liner. It's designed around slightly heavier boots (think Scarpa Maestrale, Sportiva Spectre, etc) but it walks well enough that it's definitely a suitable replacement for a lighter boot like this, particularly if you are experiencing volume issues.

Answer from Jeremy G
 
Thanks for the reply Mr. Leches. I was thinking about the powertrack liners, thanks for the advice. One more question then: sizing. I've got the TLT7s in 28.5. Which size Palau's should I get? And also, when heat molded, should they compress enough in the tight spots and expand enough in the loose spots? I don't have much extra space in the length or width of the boot; I'm mostly trying to suck up volume around the ankle, lower leg and on top of my instep. Thanks again.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
The Powertrack 10 comes in a 28.5, so I'd just go for that. You got it, the liners will expand a bit (effectively lowering the overall volume of the boot) and then compress around your foot during the heat molding process, which is where the custom fitting magic happens. Length or width in the liners is less of an issue to take care of than the other areas you mentioned, so I think it'll all work out eventually, but it may take a liner mold plus a generous amount of skiing (my Palau liners took a heat mold plus 20 days to really break in). Looks like you're obligated to 20+ more days of skiing now! ;) The height over your instep could also be solved with a boot board under your liner, but that has a lot more potential to mess with the fit in a negative way than replacing the liner does, so let's start with the liner and we can go from there.

Question from Darren
 
How do the half sizes work on these? For example is the shell for 27 and 27.5 the same with different liner or is it true half sizes?
1/12/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Darren, yes the 27 and 27.5 are the same shell with just a slight liner/insole difference.

Question from Steve S
 
does the boot come with the crampon adapter, if not does skimo carry it?
1/10/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Steve, the adapter is sold separately. We'll be carrying it as soon as it's available, which shouldn't be too far off.

How would these boots do with a wailer 112 with the tour 1 layup?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Nicholas, they are a decent match. Neither has top-end freeride performance but they sure are a lot of fun touring.

The color of this boot is silver and yellow. The stock imagery did not capture the true color well. Here's a photo of this boot on the Skimo.Co retail wall...

Question from HP1
 
Are these, or any boot in this class, big enough to ski the Dynafit Meteorite?
12/28/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi HP1, it depends on your skiing style. You can certainly do balanced skiing from the ankle, but you likely won't be able to drive it off the front of the TLT7. Send us an e-mail for a personal review.
