Challenging climbs through alpine terrain with unrivaled downhill performance: The new DYNAFIT Ridge Pro Boot was developed for passionate backcountry skiers seeking the utmost in mountain challenges. At the same time, they will accept no compromise – uphill or downhill.
The Ridge Pro Boot is an impressively fast, nimble speed touring boot with an extensive range of motion and free- dom of movement thanks to its new patented moving tongue construction and only weighing 1,250 grams. This lightweight and innovative boot transforms itself from top to bottom with the proven Hoji Lock System. Whether you seek technical terrain, steep slopes, or exposed summits, the Ridge Pro will be at home while offering a first-class downhill experience with maximum power transfer and outstanding stability.
When Fritz Barthel, inventor of the pin binding, and pro skier Eric „Hoji“ Hjorleifson put their heads together, only brilliant concepts emerge. This developer duo already proved their talent with the Hoji Pro ski touring boot and the invention of the patented Hoji Lock System. With the new, versatile Ridge Pro Boot, they delivered the perfect fusion of speed mountaineer and free tourer in one boot.
“FLOATING TONGUE” FOR MORE COMFORT AND FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
The heart of this new ski touring boot is the patented tongue construction, the “Floating Tongue.” As the name says, the tongue is not static but rather dynamically moves horizontally on the cuff. In contrast to traditional tongue const- ruction, the “Floating Tongue” has two parts: One is an exterior tongue for stability when skiing, which also provides a seal, and the other is a soft tongue connected to it that sits completely inside the solid cuff. This intelligent const- ruction enables a natural walking motion without pressure or friction. With the generous cuff rotation of 70 degrees, you are guaranteed a light, fast, energy-saving climb even on very steep terrain or when bootpacking.
The boot can be adjusted quickly and precisely via an easily accessible adjustment dial. Visible on the exterior, the cables for the adjustment dial run once across the exterior tongue, but what you don’t see is that they also run across the flexible interior tongue. That allows you to achieve the ideal heel fit that offers sensational hold. With its three-di- mensional volume adjustment, the boot can be customized to fit a variety of foot shapes perfectly. Whether you have a high or low instep, the Floating Tongue ensures long-lasting comfort down to the last climb.
DOWNHILL PERFORMANCE WITH NO COMPROMISE
If you climb a challenging mountain and give it your all, you also deserve to have fun on the downhill. Many light- weight boots are impressive on the climb but have a big shortcoming: downhill performance. This is where the Ridge Pro Boot is in an entirely different league. Grilamid and carbon fibers ensure outstanding rigidity, a progressive flex of 120 (110 in the women’s version) and the support you need for blower powder or steep couloirs.
With a reimagined rear buckle system, a 101 mm last, a unified interlocking cuff, and shell, there is no room for play while offering a positive lock no matter the foot shape, volume, or size. The forward lean of the boot sits at 12 degrees but can be altered to an athletic 15 degrees with the spoiler that comes with the boot.
For the liner, developers turned to the thermo-moldable Dynafitter 5 Liner. It fits superbly right out of the box, has good insulation, and can also be customized as needed. For secure walking out of the binding, e.g., from ski stora- ge to the summit or when bootpacking on steep terrain, the Ridge Pro Boot has a grippy Vibram outsole. The time-tested Master Step Insert provides easy, fast entry into the pin bin- ding. As with all DYNAFIT ski touring boots, the Ridge Pro Boot is made in Italy’s Montebelluna.
