Dynafit Dy.N.A Evo Ski Boot
Beware of crumbling boot soles!
Great boot, but only on snow: this picture of the EVO sole is after only five hours of cumulative off-snow travel.
(Note that two of the lugs are so completely gone that you can't see any indication that they were ever there in the first place.)
Dynafit says this is entirely normal wear for the EVO or PDG, and hence not covered under warranty.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I really like this boot. It skis like a TLT6 without the tongue and even less weight. Which says it skis exceptionally well. Sole wear is a problem to be aware of. Still no idea when or if Dynafit is going to offers rubber for a resole. I'd ask first before buying. But as I said...I really like this boot. It is enough boot to push around my 113mm short Huascarans amazingly enough. But better used on lighter, skinnier full on speed touring or race skis.
They fit crampons well (grivel) and climb technical terrian nicely. Just don't use them on rock/talus/ rough trails...the soles will shred in the blink of an eye. 5 star PLUS ski/race boot...3 star skimo boot because of the lack of durability in the sole. Too bad that.
Are the Evos in stock the 11-12 version...
Are the Evos in stock the 11-12 version or the 12-13 version? Understand the newer stock added a small spacer between the cuff pivot and lower shell that should reduce wear a bit, as well as moving to full rubber across the entire sole.
You will notice that we currently have a couple options that are on sale and a couple that are full prices. The full priced options are the current 12-13 models and the options that are on sale are the older models.
full rubber sole is a added bonus...fwiw
Pretty darn light - size 28.0 coming in at 826gm per boot!
Dynafit EVO Race Boot
I have used this boot for several tours, three races, and countless training sessions and am really starting to love it. I didn't have the chance to try it out before ordering so went off Dynafit's recommendation of sizing 1/2 size smaller than my TLT5 size (28.5) which put me in a 28 for the Evo. When I first put it on, I thought it would never fit and it was way too small - my TLTs were already tight! After putting in a superfeet insert and squishing out the toebox a bit it is now fitting perfectly! With the buckles properly tightened there is no heel slippage except when all out RUNNING. The one handed lock of cuff and switch to ski mode is excellent as with all of the Dynafit boots. The kevlar cord used for the lower buckle strap could be improved. The cord is very slippery and even when tied tightly, comes loose after some time skinning. This can be frustrating and I would rather see a BOA type system. The carbon cuff is attached to the lower boot with a metal rivet. Compared to the rival race boots (Stratos and Alien) that use a bushing, I see this as a bit of a missed opportunity. For a boot in this price range, I wish it had slightly more modern technology holding it together. The liner is comfortable. The plastic snow guard works well in place of a tongue. I wish the sole covered the full bottom of the boot but it does save weight. All in all - this is a ridiculously light boot that has helped improve my skimo racing immensely.
Here is some info on sizing
My boots have been 26.0 and 26.5 scarpa F1
and 26.5 F3.
26.0 for spring and summer 26.5 for winter warmth.
I bought a 28.0 evo( 27.5/28.0 shell)
Took my scarpa/intuition liners from my 26.5 scarpa f3,s and put them in the evo
Even without re-thermoforming they were a perfect fit.
The 27.5/28.0 evo shell is slightly tighter width wise than my F3 26.5/27.0 shells. Lengthwise left good room for my toes.
Evo are small volume shells. An evo 27.5/28.0 shell is very similar to a TLT-5 27.0/27.5 shell. EVO liners are thin.
The boots are a dream for me. Can hike like a light hiking boot or shoe.
What is the last of that boot?
What is the last of that boot?
98mm is the last width.
Overall it runs pretty narrow. A bootfitter can do shell mods, but get a GOOD one. Grillamid is a touchy material to work with.
Very thin materail Easy to punch if you go slow but it is very thin compared to other boots.
with these evo boots can I use normal...
with these evo boots can I use normal alpine skiing bindings like elan skis is it good for mogul skiing
You can't. These are tech binding compatible only.
These would be horrible for mogul skiing. They are light and not supportive enough for aggressive bump skiing.
Is the shell fit for the Evo the same as...
Is the shell fit for the Evo the same as TLT5?...i.e. can I size a 27.5 TLT5 shell in a store, then order a 27.5 Evo and expect similar shell fit? If not, how is the sizing different?
Shell fit wil be very slightly different. The EVO changes length on the 1/2 size and the TLT5 changes on the whole size. The boot sole lengths may help you. 27.0 & 27.5 TLT5s are a BSL of 297mm. Both 27.5 and 28.0 EVOs are a BSL of 299mm.
Hope this helps. Enjoy!
Pretty narrow boot. If you have room in a 27.5s TLT go to a 28 Evo. If not you'll want ot go up a shell to a 28.5
