Very cool offering from skimo.co I am excited to be able to pick and choose my Dynafit toe and heel pieces and build the ideal touring binding or spring ski mountaineering tool.

These are my first true race boot and i have loved them. Not quite as warm and comfy as my TLT5P (cant believe i wrote that) but a great all around lightweight performer. They ski similarly to the TLT5 without the tongue stiffners. The ankle articulation is amazing and the transition from skinning to skiing is super simple. I have also really enjoyed them for long days in the mountains paired with a smaller touring ski.
I have had really good luck with these skins but i am running them slightly different than originally designed. I cut off the metal tip connections and replaced with the Dyanfit bungee system for my Broad Peak skis. They have peformed great with good grip, glide, light weight, and supple. So far i have used the tail connector more like the old Black Diamond method, simply clicking it on the back instead of up and over....works great.
I love the dynafit skins and these seem to be the same product and behave accordingly. I love the glide and grip ratio as well as how supple these skins are.... I was unimpressed with the tail clip and two of my good friends had severe glue failures after only a few uses. They both bought from the same discount supplier and most likely both got the same bad batch....hopefully it was a fluke.

I love the Radical toe piece and the ability to swap out the radicals heel unit to a Superlite or Race heel to save weight and drop my ramp angle back to something i prefer. Very cool offering by skimo.co!
