We brought this model in last year and were very impressed with the feedback. The TLT series has a reputation that proceeds itself as the pioneer of modern backcountry ski boots. The Carbonio takes the TLT class up a notch with a carbon upper and thin but cozy liner. This is all complimented with a wider last (103mm) to accommodate a variety of foot sizes. Definitely worth trying this boot on if you're considering anything from Dynafit in this category.
### Dynafit Says: ###
The TLT8 Carbonio unisex ski touring boot made of premium carbon fiber is the ultimate companion for fast and efficient climbing at just 990 grams. The laminated carbon fiber shell was developed in partnership with Formula 1 engineers and ensures uncompromising performance on the descent. With this Ferrari among ski touring boots, you will not only be the first on the summit but also the first back in the valley! To ensure even more speed as well as comfort and reliability on the climb, DYNAFIT developers paid special attention to the new two-buckle Ultra Lock 4.0 closure system. Simple and intuitive in its operation, it saves time when transitioning from climbing to descending. The upper buckle has two functions: It operates as a lever for the ski-walk mechanism and also opens the shell. Just as with the mid-foot buckle, it is micro-adjustable and can be fit to your foot precisely. The system is also easy to operate with gloves, and wins points for its reliability and solid workmanship – for speed, without compromise. Thanks to a cuff rotation of 60 degrees, this boot enables a natural, energy-saving walking gait even on very steep terrain. The shortened toe – the so-called “Speed Nose” – reduces the weight of this Speed ski touring boot, while its setback pivot point allows a more efficient walking gait. In downhill mode, you can lock this ski touring boot into a forward lean of 15 or 18 degrees. For ideal power transfer to the ski, the fit of the TLT8 Carbonio has been re-engineered. Its last width of 103 mm offers great comfort on long tours as well as a secure, sturdy hold at the heel. The CL “Custom Light” boot liner is thermo-moldable and can thus be adapted to fit each individual foot – providing a perfect fit without pressure points. This ski touring boot is ideally suited for use with the new, ultralight Cramp-In crampon, which was developed in partnership with mountain sports brand SALEWA. Meaning your are also safe out of the binding while walking, be it on icy traverses or very steep terrain. As with all DYNAFIT ski touring boots, the TLT8 is made in Italy’s Montebelluna and meets the highest quality standards. TLT8 Carbonio – Your high-performance climbing champion.
