Why We Like the Dynafit Radical Pro W Alpine Touring Boot
The Dynafit Radical Pro Women’s boot offers the same incredible Hoji-lock one lever throw as before, but in a new better fit and now with 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 with squeezing the ankle bones as you tightened the boot. The Radical Pro is now molded out to prevent this problem, leaving ample space both around the ankles and instep. The 104 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 Pro your one-boot-quiver touring option.
The Radical Pro 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, and maintains 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 1270 grams in Size 24 and made with a full head-to-toe Grilamid build that offers a progressive and functional 120 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.
Dynafit Radical Pro Women's Alpine Touring Boot
Couldn’t find these in my size anywhere, and Cripple Creek saved the day! With a quick heat mold, these boots have been great for my wide feet and short calves. Haven’t taken them out on a long tour yet, but can say they are amazingly comfortable for shorter walks.
So much better on the downhill than my Salomon’s with 2 buckles!
It is a gift for my daughter. She has not yet received.
