What is the Dynafit binding?
Dynafit is a backcountry skiing binding that allows you to ski downhill with your boot attached to your ski the same way a regular alpine ski binding functions, yet transforms into a touring/climbing binding for skiing uphill or across level ground with your heels free to move up and down. The binding is available in numerous models. The TLT Speed (Tour Lite Tech) has been available for several decades. We have used the TLT extensively and highly recommend it as well as the Dynafit Comfort, ST and FT model offerings, as well as the TLT Radical FT and TLT Radical ST. Note that this TYPE of backcountry skiing binding is commonly called a “tech” binding. “Dynafit” is a brand.
