Verified: Dynafit Radical ST

A lightweight and powerful touring binding

From the second Dynafit added Eric Hjorleifson to their pro team, the skiing community has anxiously awaited some new developments in boot technology. By using the tech developed in their widely successful TLT5 boots and marrying it with the ideas from Hoji’s Frankenboot, Dynafit has created the Vulcan. Intended for the aggressive freeride touring/mountaineering crowd, the Vulcan is one of the stiffest touring boots I’ve ever tried on (though I didn’t get to ski it). However, what impressed me the most—even more than its light weight (1590 grams)—is the range of motion in walk mode. When you pull out the removable tongue (much like the TLT5), this boot has near unmatched stride length (both fore and aft), especially amongst other aggressive, downhill-oriented boots. I personally am pumped for the arrival of this boot next season. It will do a big part to change the perception of what is possible in boot tech, especially in the tourability of aggressive AT boots.

A.T. Bindings

Alpine touring bindings fall into two camps, tech-style and frame-style. They’re like apples and oranges. But there’s plenty of nitpicking to do within each category. Find your next AT binders here.
