Don't forget your Lycra.
If just the thought of a 4 a.m. alarm, your skinsuit, and a morning spent skiing uphill as fast as you can makes you wistful and excited, congrats. While others may not quite understand you, they most certainly respect your ability to enjoy the most difficult parts of Nordic and backcountry skiing put together. This season, lighten your load on your way to new PR's in your weeknight skimo race series with Dynafit's PDG Ski Boot.
The PDG comes with an injection-molded medium flex shell, which means your foot won't be locked up in a vice for your hike up, but it will still be backed up by enough stiffness when you turn towards sketchy descents. The boot's titanex fiber cuff and spoiler provide a lightweight, consistent flex throughout your training session or race so you can turn your full focus to the terrain ahead. Dynafit built the PDG on a narrow racing last, but before you worry about your toes getting crunched, know that you can heat up the thermo-moldable race liner it comes with to adapt its fit to your foot shape. When you're getting ready, the PDG's simplified two-buckle design won't slow you down with repeated adjustments. The top buckle acts as the ski/walk mechanism, and both lock the boot down quickly for a secure fit.
Before you set off, adjust the forward lean anywhere between 14 and 17 degrees, depending on your preference or the conditions, and marvel at the boot's whopping 62-degrees of cuff rotation while in walk mode—your leg will stop rotating backwards long before this boot does. Since races can take you to some slippery spots, Dynafit used an EVO race rubber sole to provide you with the best combination of grip and lightness while you navigate icy traverses and slick ascents.
