Description

Serious about performance; serious about fun.

The Dynafit TLT6 Performance CR Ski Boot is not for the faint of heart. This expert-level touring boot is for the serious, committed, and sometimes crazy. It's not only capable of skiing gnarly terrain; it kind of insists on it. Its Grilamid shell resists extreme cold and stands up to anything --conditions you'll find in the wild and rugged backcountry. A carbon fiber and Pebax cuff and rear spoiler deliver security and power when bombing down steeps at frightening speed.

But all this strength and capability shouldn't scare you, because this boot comes equipped with a foot-loving Custom Ready liner, anatomic and moldable to your every curve and arch. Its lightweight warmth gets a boost with an aluminum sheet on the bottom to reflect heat. And this closed-cell liner features a destructured flex zone for easy hiking. In walk mode, you have a 15-18-degree release angle, and the cuff rotates 60 degrees for comfortable convenience. A hassle-free two-buckle Ultra-Lock buckle system battens down the hatches like you're going to war. But, no, you're just out for rip-roaring fun.

  • Grilamid shell
  • Custom Ready thermo-moldable liner
  • Carbon fiber and Pebax cuff and spoiler
  • 15 to 18 degree forward lean
  • 60-degree cuff rotation
  • Ultra-Lock system 2.0 buckles

Gemstone of a Canyon

Shredding on the Dynafit TLT 6 and Line Sick Day 95 in variable snow conditions.

Tennis shoe comfort up,Solid on the down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The TLT 6 is a super comfy touring boot. The uphill feels like you're in your summer hiking tennies, but lock in the downhill mode, and they really perform.

If you're an avid backcountry skier / mountaineer, you'll really love the simplicity and performance of the TLT 6.

Incredibly light!

Pretty slim fit and a low cuff, but if they fit your foot, go for it. The lowers are also able to be punched, so those nasty bone spurs can be addressed.

Am I correct in reading that the only difference between the Mountain and the Performance is a very slight weight difference, stiffness of the shell (tongues?) and liner difference? If this is the case, can anyone tell me what difference I should expect to notice between the CR and CL liners? Thanks in advance for any and all answers.

Responded on

So the CR liner will be much more comfortable out of the box. The CL liner was made to be the lightest and have the best articulation. Either way I recommend going with an Intuition after market liner, the Dynafit shells are revolutionary but, they are lacking a comfortable liner in the CL or CR version unfortunately. We cant wait till they jump on the Intuition train like Scarpa has.

Spring Skiing Essential

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots. I have been using them all spring/summer skiing the PNW. They are super light and tour amazingly. I had the TLT5 before these and the TLT6 is noticeably stiffer without the "flex zone" in the toe box. I had mine punched to accommodate my wide feet without any issues. They are also a lot warmer than my TLT5's were. I have used them with automatic crampons with no issues as well.

Awesome if you can make it fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I snagged these on end of season sale (although it looks like I should have waited longer) based on excellent reviews, hoping for a lighter, more walk friendly boot than my Scarpa Maestrale RS boots. The catch for me with all ski boots is that I have very flat feet, resulting in a midfoot that's as wide as my forefoot. Every unmodified ski boot I've ever tried pinches there as a result. So far I've stuck in custom footbeds, had the liners heat molded, and the shell's midfoot punched twice (and will probably do it once more). I've skied them 3 days backcountry and 1 day at the resort before the snow disappeared, and really am excited about their potential.
What I like:
*fantastic range of motion in walk mode. I boot backed over a mile already and they really made that easy compared to any other boot I've tried (BD Factor, Scarpa Maestrale RS)
*super light weight
*cool walk mode system - just flip open the top buckle and loosen power strap
*nice progressive flex with the green tongue - stiff enough for the control I need, but not jarring
What I don't like:
*ridiculously narrow - anyone with wide/flat feet is looking at serious shell work.
*liner is OK, but not as moldable or warm as an Intuition Pro Tour
*crazy expensive (unless you get them on sale) in comparison to other good light tour boots (Maestrale RS, La Sportiva Spectre)
*dealing with the tongues is kind of annoying, but not awful

Any chance backcountry.com will get 29.0's...

Any chance backcountry.com will get 29.0's this season?

We had some 29's in earlier in the season but unfortunately the winter season is coming to a close and we are not able to pull in any more inventory.

Great up and down boot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These boots are as light as feather and comfy on the way up. On the down, by sticking in the hard plastic tongue, they give me more performance (i.e., stiffness) than my pure downhill boots. Be careful with the sizing - it is really tricky and I recommend a professional fit. I have struggled to get mine to fit right (my feet are WIDE). Beware if you have wide feet as you will likely need some after-market modifications (i.e., spreading the grilamid shell with special techniques and eqiupment). I still think they are the best on the AT market and once you get them dialed, you can look at every hill right between eyes (on the up and down). Get some.

Women's Dynafit TLT6 Mountain Boot

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am loving my new TLT6 women's specific Mountain boot.
I love the flex; ease of use; interchangable tongues; and locking system. I no longer get achilles tendonitis with the flex pattern of this boot. I've been using them with a very beefy ski and they are working fine. Plus I love the colors and they fit to perfection my narrowish foot.

TLT 6 Review from The Sheepeater

I reviewed the TLT 6 Mountain (not the carbon fiber Performance) but the boots have a lot in common. Hopefully this video helps you decide on what boots are best for you. After 35+ ski days in the TLT 6 I still get excited just putting them on in the morning. Full review plus an extreme cold weather test against last year's TLT 5 is available here: http://tukadika.com/2013/12/30/gear-review-dynafit-tlt-6-backcountry-ski-boots/

light, narrow, stiff-ish, flexible

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As someone who yearned for the TLT 5, but simply couldn't deal with the narrow shell (I would say I have normal to narrow width feet, too), I was very excited to get my feet into the TLT 6. I was able to delude myself that maybe these were wide enough on the carpet, but as soon as I hit the skin track -- ouch. As Lou Dawson over at WS has shown, these things are just as narrow as the TLT 5, but the saving grace is that the new liner has much more bulk that can be taken out during thermomolding. After some aggressive liner squashing, these fit like a dream.

Pluses:
- So damn light
- So much range of motion for touring, and they tour so smoothly...there is simply less resistance in tour mode than any boot I've ever toured in...the huge soft pivot zone in this liner is awesome
- Not a super stiff boot, but these are remarkably stiff for what they are

Minuses:
- Still too narrow for many (or a plus if you have narrow feet), but at least they have some width to gain with molding, and much easier to punch without the TLT5's bellows
- New liner is a huge improvement in warmth / fit, but still not the most robust liner out there
- Like many carbon boots, the flex feels pretty "on/off", not super progressive

TLT 6, no complaints.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The TLT 6 is a good improvement on the great TLT 5. While slightly heavier, this boot is not a step back in any other capacity. A beefier bottom buckle is the most notable improvement for me when it comes to durability. Also, the bottom portion of the boot is noticeably stiffer, improving its ski-ability. As with the TLT 5 this boot is not bullet proof and I suspect to break as easily as its predecessor. This boot skies better, and climbs just as well as the TLT 5. However, in my experience it is not any warmer than the TLT 5 so if you are looking for an improvement in warmth this is not the answer. On the other hand, I have found the new liner to be more comfortable.

TLT 6, no complaints.

Will an intuition liner work for on these...

Will an intuition liner work for on these ok. It is the liner good.

Yes you can throw an Intuition in these,the Pro Tour would be my recommendation as it has an articulated Achilles for better and more efficient skinning.

Responded on

Yes on the Intuition. But you might find the newest TLT6 CR version even better all around, for touring and support. Easy to form as well for fit. Only advantage I can see is more warmth from the Intuition. And even that isn't going to be much. Intuition will be dry at the end ofa long day however. Teh CR you'll have to dry out. Advanatge there for sure.

Responded on

I have a low volume narrow foot. Bought a 28 for length and still had to punch both sides for the ball of foot width. The CR liner felt secure at home but not so when skiing down. I spent the extra money on the Intuition Pro Tour liner with a thick tongue. The liner itself is much thicker and infills the shell like maybe the CR would with a beefier foot, thus reducing movement. I now have a heel pocket "to beat all" and the tongue holds much more secure. They are a bit warmer too.
P.S. I carved a foam "plug" to fill the 1/2" space between the liner and shell in the toe and that helps with warmth too.

and they will still climb

and they will still climb

Not as well as the old 5 but good enough...

Responded on

Having already spent a good amount of time in these boots I'm going to have to disagree. Yes they are "slightly" heavier than the TLT 5, but I have found the difference in their climbing ability to be negligible.

Responded on

My 2nd take on that? Weight is zip between the two with comparable liners. Ony the foam foot bed and heavier buckles make any real difference. 12g or 1/2oz to be exact. I have been in them since Spring of '13, skiing and climbing. Walking or booting in a TLT6 I definately notice the lack of for-foot flex. Put a good crampon on them and there no difference as a technical crampon is virtually rigid anyway. 6 is a better ski boot it is not a better "climbing" boot without crampons. Sure they climb well but some comfort and foot health is gone without the additional flex.

Matthew: They look like Grivel G20 to me.

Responded on

Just wanted to quickly chime in. I wore my TLT5s for three years and beat the crap out of them. I replaced them with the TLT6 performances about a month ago.

I have to agree with Dane.

Skiing, the TLT6 is an improvement, but not a huge one. They are stiffer and the buckles inspire more confidence. Climbing, though, I've gotta go with the TLT5. I can't figure out exactly what makes them climb better, but they just seem to have a better range of motion and better flex.

I'm definitely going to continue to use my TLT5s for bigger boots and spring climbing.

A step above the TLT 5 for skiing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a big step up for skiing on the TLT5. Lot to like about this boot. But by comparison to what else is avaialbe it gets heavier every year. Only a race boot walks better. More detailed review here:
