Dynafit is leading the high alpine, mountaineering and touring industries thanks to their performance-driven products. Since the victory of Franz Klammer in 1973, who was equipped with Dynafit gear, the brand kept developping and improving its products. You may remember the Tourlite in 1983. It was the lightest ski mountaineering boot available on the market at the time. A few years later, the brand released a line of revolutionary alpine ski boots featuring a Gore-Tex Thermo Dry membrane.
Still with innovation in mind, Dynafit introduced a new touring ski binding in 1990, the Tourlite Tech. The binding shook the touring industry due to its incredible lightweight. Then, the brand sponsored the best athletes and worked jointly with them to design new revolutionary skis: the D612 and D914 as well as a new climbing skins system, the Speedskin-Fix.
Dynafit's athletes were breaking every climbing records. The ascent of Mustagh Ata summit (7545m) was achieved in 10 hours and 41 minutes. They reached the top of Gasherbrum II (8035m) but failed climbing the Manaslu (8163m) because of bad weather conditions. But that didn't put an end to the success story, the Dynafit team keeps going and tours Chamonix-Zermatt-Alagna in just 3 days. The tour involves 140km (87 miles) and 10,000m (over 32,800ft) of height gain. In 2012, they go back to the Manaslu and take their revenge. They go up the peak and back down in less than a day.
Dynafit is an iconic brand in the touring industry, it helped raise the standards and pushed the sport forward. If you want Dynafit performance on your feet, check the notorious TLT5 touring ski boots, Dynafit touring skis and Low Tech bindings.
