Dynafit continues its lead in the ski mountaineering world, creating products with an unbeatable performance to weight ratio. The TLT (Tour Light Tech) range of ski touring boots have been around for quite a long time now, having been through many different iterations over the years, but this, the latest TLT8, looks like the best yet.
Dynafit TLT8 Expedition CL W Build
The Dynafit TLT8 Expedition CL W has been built around the female foot, aimed at women who are keen on ski touring, ski mountaineering, and just generally pushing their limits on the skin track.
Dynafit have paid attention to every detail in this boot so they could shed as much weight as possible, while keeping efficiency and touring comfort at a premium. Starting with the Speed Nose, this is where Dynafit has set back the pivot point of the pin inserts by 4 mm to reduce the lever arm and create more efficiency (a pivot point closer to your toes equals a more natural stride).
The TLT Expedition 8 also includes the Dynafit patented closure system – Ultra Lock 4.0 – where you can change from walk to ski mode and vice versa in a single movement. Dynafit are the kings of single motion ski / walk transitions, and the TLT series has long proven this. Both the upper and lower buckles have handy micro-adjustable ladders to help get that custom fit.
