Elevation Outdoors magazine, one of the leading publications for outdoor enthusiasts, has announced the winners of their first Best of Backcountry Awards. Among the winners was Dynafit for their exceptional Radical Pro Touring boot and Free 107 ski. Dynafit is dedicated to producing high- quality, innovative backcountry skiing and mountaineering gear.
Dynafit’s Radical pro ski touring boot has been awarded the prestigious Best of Backcountry Gear Award from Elevation Outdoors magazine. This versatile boot has been designed to meet the needs of all- round tourers and features a new boot- fitting concept with an optimized tongue construction. The Radical Pro also boasts the award winning Hoji Lock System, which seamlessly integrates into the design. This innovative combination of features provides the perfect balance of entry, climbing, and downhill comfort. Equipped with the much-lauded Hoji Pro prior model features, the Radical Pro has quickly established itself on the market as a comfortable, yet light and sturdy multi-talented boot.
“The best boot we have put to the test over days of touring and resort laps, the Radical Pro works with pin, frame, and hybrid bindings,” the Elevation Outdoors magazine reviewers wrote. “Utilizing the brand’s Hoji Lock System, which engages with one easy flip that battens the boot down from comfy touring mode to dialed-in ski mode, the boot handles both going up and bombing down with precision while tipping the scales at just over 3 pounds in a size 26.5. Best of all, it comes with a lifetime guarantee.”
Elevation Outdoors also featured Dynafit’s Free 107 skis as part of their “Best of Backcountry” awards section. The Free 107 skis offer convincing performance with their light construction to help you to save your energy on the way to the perfect line so you can give it your all on the descent. The raised tip lends to improved turn initiation and an easy float. The full sidewalls guarantee direct power transfer to the edges for best performance and stability no matter where you are.
“The Free 107 and Radical pro boots go together like bread and butter. They’re the perfect touring combo for any backcountry pursuit blending weight and performance” said Ross Herr, North American Sales and Marketing Director for Oberalp, the parent company of Dynafit. “We’re grateful for the recognition from the Elevation Outdoors testing team! We like this combo so much that next year winter ‘23/’24 you’ll see the pair come back with a matching color combo and the ski will take on the famed “radical” name as the Radical 107.”
The Best of Backcountry Awards is a new addition to the outdoor industry and reflects the growing popularity of backcountry skiing and mountaineering. The testers for this award were Douglas Schnitzbam, Cameron Martindell, Chris Kassar, and Ryan Michelle Scavo.
