JJ, Dynafit hasn't figured out yet that North American skiers are bigger people. Although the radical is an improvement, they still haven't bumped up the DIN settings to actually hold you in when it counts. NA skiers have been dealing with this for years, the solution is simple.... just lock out the toe lever on the way down. Contrary to what dynafit and everyone says, they will still release when you knock them hard. Disclaimer: I'm 205lbs/6'4"

Also, the fact that they are all metal. cam seems to say that his dynafits caused him a tib/fib spiral fx... i'm curious if he was skiing in locked mode, and how much he weighs? I always ski locked out because I tend to fly out of dynafits if not locked out because I weigh ~200lbs. Even when locked out, I've never had a problem with them releasing in a crash, and I've never had an injury due to nonrelease. Actually, all of my bad accidents can be partly or wholly attributed to prerelease of a heel or locked toe, most of the time because of all the chintzy plastic that dynafit uses. Can't wait until I have some $$$ to pick these up, but I am interested to see what people say about skiing with these locked out... it seems that it would be a stronger lock, and may actually cause some injuries if you weren't careful.
