Outdoor Retailer Preview: Backcountry Ski Gear

The Outdoor Retailer show is next week! We'll be onsite to see the latest gear for fall 2012 and we'll be handing out awards for Gear of the Show. Here are some attention grabbing early releases for backcountry skiers that just hit our desks.


DYNAFIT '12_VULCAN_Carbon_Dynafit Vulcan TF: Made for the new free touring, hiking in for extreme lines, Dynafit is calling its new carbon Vulcan TF, developed with input by pro skier Eric Hjorleifson, a completely new way of thinking about AT boots. The boot gives skiers big mountain performance at half the weight of similar boots. The Vulcan can drive the fattest ski, and climb the highest peak while maintaining optimal control for stomping pillow lines, zipping through high speed arcs, or dropping a powdery backcountry hit.

Dynafit President Chris Sword said, “The Vulcan offers unrivaled skiing performance, the ability to drive modern freeride skis at any speed, the possibility to customize forward stiffness, optimal heel retention while skiing and when landing big drops. This is combined with the walk-ability, and the lightness and patented technologies that made our TLT5 so popular among the best skiers in the world.  All the best materials such as carbon fiber, grilamid and magnesium are used in this model to offer un-thinkable performance and lightness.” Available fall 2012, $1000, dynafit.com
