Description

Energy for another lap.

Some bindings make you feel like you’re dragging cement blocks up the hill. Since you want your legs to be bum-slapping fresh for the hard-earned descent, Dynafit made the superlight TLT Vertical ST Binding.
  • The combination of CrMo steel, stainless steel adds strength while keeping weight at a modest 400g (without stopper)
  • Torsion-bridge between toe and heel, plus four metal attachment points, distribute force evenly for torsional stability and control during descents
  • Low height for direct energy-transfer to ski
  • Self-guiding wings for quick entry
  • Activate the climbing heel-support system easily with your pole tip

I've got Black crowes nocta at 176 with 122 underfoot, I'm with tlt5 - 150lbs not that agressive skier, gonna use it everywhere, slopes, under lifts, going back country, should these work fine or to go for the radical ft

Responded on

these should work just fine for you. I am 170 lbs and a very aggressive skier and I rock the G3 onyx tech binding in and out of bounds and I haven't had a problem with it. I do think the G3 has better retention than these, so if that is concern of yours then maybe have a look at those. but only being 150 and not that aggressive you should be fine!

Can you install breaks on tlt vertical after they've been mounted on skis??

You can on the Verticals as well as on Radicals if they were made prior to last season.

Awesome Bindings

These are the only bindings that I use. Easy to get into and easy to adjust the heel lift with my ski pole.

I wish to purchase the ski trab volare ski 164cm, 100mm under foot. If I purchase this binding (brake width 92mm), could I fit the DynafitSki Stopper TLT Vertical + Comfort Crampon in width 100mm in replacement of the 92mm brakes to fit the above ski? Would you recommend 100mm brakes or 110 mm for this ski? Is 'stopper' another word for brake? and what is the 'comfort crampon' that comes with the stopper? I am sorry if these are stupid questions, but I am trying to make this work. Cheers

Responded on

Yes you would be able to use those brakes with these bindings, I'd go with the 100mm so you don't get any extraneous overhang. They do not come with any sort of crampon, they are just using that in the title to denote which bindings those brakes are compatible with .

When are you getting more stock in 100mm in? Or do you have any alternatives you can offer please for 100mm wide skis under foot. Thank you

Responded on

We do not have any on order at the moment. We usually get more ski stuff in the fall. It starts coming in around September.

Nope, what's on the list is what's in stock. Sorry!

Will these bindings be compatible with Black Diamond Synchra women's ski? It has a 80mm width. I am also skiing with Black Diamond Shiva boots.

Thanks!

Responded on

J. - these are indeed wide enough to fit that ski. You'll need the tech toepiece for the shiva boot (the one with the Dynafit fittings in the toe).

Another catalog's specs list boot range 6-13 for these bindings. My boots are BD Prime 30.5. Will these bindings work? Is the only issue the plastic connecting rib? I would probably remove it anyway to use ski crampons.

This boot http://www.wildsnow.com/4687/garmont-masterlite-boot-review/ will only work with a tech binding such as this one.

You Won't Feel Any Difference

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These bindings are unbelievable! They are light and honestly I didn't feel any difference between them and alpine bindings. They are easy to get into and they def surpassed my expectaions. After reading some reviews, I was afraid they might pre-release but that def was not the case. When reading reviews we need to keep in mind what type of skier is using the particular product. I didn't use these bindings to land 20 ft jumps. But they handled iced, groomers, and powder very well. You really don't feel the difference between these and alpine bindings (at least I didn't ). I'm def amazed how well they performed. I really can't find one reason why anone wouldn't rate these bindings as 5 stars

Great binding, though heavy for tech

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Don't notice any performance difference between the Vertical ST and the Speed Radicals. FYI, the 82mm brakes weigh 235g as a set, so removing those will net significant savings.

It will work with any Scarpa AT boot with "Tech" binding inserts. This includes all current Scarpa models.

Posted on

Has anyone used these on a 100mm ski? Is 8mm too much bending? I want to switch to tech bindings on my Atomic Access skis, but don't really want to pay an extra hundred dollars for the 100mm Vertical FT's. Thanks for the input...think snow!

Responded on

Hey goddjohn1893760,

Thanks for the question. On alpine bindings, I don't like to bend the brakes more than 5mm and Dynafit stoppers are definitely a bit more fragile than that. I would suggest to snag the Dynafit TLT stoppers that we have on this site in the 100mm size. They're $69.99 so it'll still be less expensive than the Vertical FT binding.

Responded on

You may also want to consider the difference in DIN setting. The Vertical ST is 4-10 and the Vertical FT is 6-12. Ideally, you want to have your DIN closest to the middle of the range.

Posted on

My primary objective is(was)to lighten my equipment. I have never been on a true backcountry setup (tech bindings/boot combo). My old boots (purely alpine) of 20 years back only weighed 8lbs-5oz. I bought a new pair (alpine) last year and was stunned when they came in at 11lbs-6oz! This is progress?!! This is what led to a search for a lighter boot..leading me into AT. So, here I am wondering if I can ski both the backcountry and the lift-served areas with a true AT setup. ??? Someone mentioned below that heli skiing wouldn't be a good idea with Dynafit type bindings..why not? All this talk I'v heard about tech type bindings not being "strong" enough for frontside lift-served skiing is confusing when I hear the other crowd comment on how they have skied 55 degree chutes with their dynafits. I am not going to find too many 55 deg. chutes at most of the resorts I ski. I have a feeling that if I make this conversion to AT, I'll never go back. The thought of untracked powder..!

Best Answer Responded on

Hear is the answer I gave on the Dynafit Radical page:
"How well they hold depends on both your skiing style and what you ski in-bounds. Watch Hoji, he may be super-powerful, but he's always smooth. If you are slammin' VW-size hard bumps all day, tech bindings may not be the call. They will hold for some cranking skiing, but they don't have the elasticity of an alpine (or alpine-style) binding."

Some more info with a personal slant: I am light (150#), have skiied since age 2, grew up racing on Vermont ice, but now live in Utah. I like to ski as if every turn is the last one I will get. I pretty much never have pre-release issues with tech bindings at all speeds, in or out of bounds. That said, I realize that bigger dudes with different skiing styles may have different experiences. As mentioned above, it's all about elasticity. An alpine binding will allow you to get sideways and (may) bring you back in before it releases. With tech bindings (any brand), you are either in or you are out. Hope this helps.

Responded on

Thanks, Sandy, that makes very good sense. I'm 180lbs and mainly ski big-dump days where there is little "slam" like skiing. On occasion, I will ski off 10 to 15 foot drops, but nothing bigger.

They should. It's only 2.5mm on each side, right?!?! You should have no problem. Hope this helps.

Get some

I have no complaints about these. My 1st AT bindings, and I'm glad I didn't go a different route. I'm not that aggressive so going with the higher DIN capable models wasn't worth the cost and weight. I've paired them with BD Aspects and Scarpa Rush. Get yourself some!

I have bought the TLT dynafit radical ST

My feet shape suit the Black diamond boots. Either Quadrant or Prime (any tips?- havent bought yet)
I have heard BD boots dont work well with dynafit. Is this true??

Responded on

BD's tech-system boots should work fine with Dynafit. The only "official" Dynafit toe-bars are found in Dynafit and Scarpa boots. These can work a little better, but any tech-compatible boots should work. Always be sure get all snow/ice out of your toe inserts by stepping into the binding and then rotating 3-4 times.

Posted on

Which dynafit binding is recommended for the G3 Manhattan ski? 108 underfoot, 190 length, I think they weigh about 4.2 or so per pair.... skier is 190lbs, 6'2"

Responded on

If you are a fairly aggressive skier, I would go with either the Radical FT or the Vertical FT, but leaning toward the Radical. Both have DINs that go up to 12. The Radical is the new version with a beefier toe-piece, wider & stiffer plate underfoot and easier elevators.
