Boot Fitters Advice
The Dynafit Radical boot offers the same incredible Hoji-lock one lever throw as before, but with an improved fit and full touring binding compatibility. Gone are the days of the speed nose preventing compatibility with more of the alpine style bindings. It also gives you great crampon parings with all double bailed regular crampons, but still has the cut-away for the Dynafit Cramp-in.
Let's talk about fit. All three-layer Cabrio boots like the Radical's Hoji Pro Tour predecessor had problems squeezing the ankle bones as you tightened the boot. The Radical is now molded to prevent this problem, leaving ample space around the ankles and instep. The 104mm last makes the rest of the boot comfortable, and the Sidas fully heat moldable liner allows for easy customization of your new boot to your old foot.
A one-lever walk mode pops you into a fully-free pivot motion which feels similar to many of the rando race boots and ultralight offerings on the market. The forward motion is virtually limitless, while the rearward motion is more than enough for even the flattest of roads. The one buckle system is what makes the Radical your one-boot-quiver touring option.
The Radical still has the same innovation we came to love from the Hoji line. In combination with the walk mechanism, the Hoji is smooth between uphill and downhill, maintaining its stiffness with very little behind the inner workings. The Hoji Lock Mechanism is a revolutionary turning point in how stiff a touring boot can be and still feel effortless when hiking.
Coming in at 1520 grams in size 26.5 and made with a full head-to-toe PU build that offers a progressive and functional 110 flex, this boot is light and fast on both the up and the down. The design is durable and stiff and will hold up to the test of time.
