I purchased this boot at the Seattle store as an upgrade from my Scarpa Freedom SLs. The day after purchasing I took it to Hyak for a few laps, and dropped a skin half way down the second lap, so boot packed up about 500' to find it. The toebox in this boot is much more accommodating than the Scarpa, and I had them punch the shell out a bit. After the day at Hyak I stopped by and they punched it out a bit more while I waited. Now it is about perfect. The Hoji single lever system is nothing short of a revelation for transitions, and this boot skis stiffer than the freedom SLs. The range of motion in walk mode is much more than I had expected.
I also can't say enough about how great the staff at Cripple Creek have been. From my first consultation with Tyler in CO, to my fit sessions in Fremont in Seattle with Michael the entire experience was easy peasy, and they got me dialed.
Awesome range of motion. I really like the ease of the hoji system. The stiffness for the weight on these is also something noteworthy. I think one of the most beneficial things for me has been how easy it was to adapt the boots to my weird and wide feet.
This boot replaced my Scarpa Maestrale (several genrerations).
It skis harder and walks better.
The boot work at your Seattle shop is superb.
Thank you for the awesome gear and service
I was looking for a replacement for my Dynafit Hoji Pro Tours and the Radical Pros are just the ticket. I'm addicted to the one-step operation of the Hoji walk mode and the performance of the stiffer shell but I didn't need the same flex and wanted something crampon compatible. The Radical Pros have a bit more range of motion, more forward lean capability, and have just enough stiffness for anything I might drop on. Looking forward to taking them out every day this season!
Got these as my first pair of touring boots and love them. Comfortable on the uphill with lots of flex, but also great on the downhill. Almost no real performance loss from my downhill boots. Really easy transitions with just a single lever that loosens straps.
Fantastic recommendation from the Carbondale crew. First boots I have had that have been comfortable from day one. Only slightly heavier than my Spectres but feel way more solid and will be great for on mountain as well as backcountry.
They're AMAZING in terms of functionality, however my foot still has to break in the boot. I can't really advise doing a 7 hour trip in these boots the first time you wear them.
I'm glad that you're generally excited about your Dynafit Radical Pro boots. They're a great match for powerful skiers and bigger skis! We generally recommend breaking in the boot a little bit before going out for a huge day, but way to get after it! If we can help get the fit dialed in, don't hesitate to reach out. We'll gladly do what we can to make sure your feet are happy.
