Rumor has it Dynafit made a deal with the devil for the light weight and high performance of the TLT7 Carbonio boot, but that's neither here nor there. What is for sure is that with a total weight around 2lb per boot and a stiff Grilamid and carbon-fiber Lambda shell, the Carbonio's efficiency and energy savings might be worth spending eternity in a fiery inferno if you're a speed-oriented ski mountaineer. Obsessed with speed, Dynafit developed the Snowdynamic concept shaping and Speed Nose to make the boot more efficient on the skintrack—wave goodbye to the traditional toe welt and laterally-protruding buckles and say hello to optimized snow-shedding and smooth touring movement.
Although Dynafit shaved some excess material away to create this sleek, dark, and mysterious boot, it also sprinkled in a few heavenly extras like the Master Step insert, which features longer channels that lure in pins on tech bindings for considerably easier entry and security. Also new this year is the UltraLock 3.0 closure system, which combines ski/walk mode control and tightening system in a single, low-profile buckle for less futzing around with cold hands on the summit. The setback pivot point allows for 60 degrees of cuff rotation while ascending, and a powerful, dialed-in flex on the way down—some might even call it devilishly good.
