Dynafit, the company with the lightest set of randonee skis, boots and bindings, just got lighter. This year they introduce a race ski, boot, and binding. Randonee racing is very popular in Europe and catching on in the US. The idea is lots of climbing, 5,000 feet or more per race, and surviving the downhills on your skis to get to the next climb. With all that elevation gain, weight is of the utmost importance. Dynafit uses carbon fiber in the ski construction, carbon fiber and titanium in the binding, and reduces the boot to one buckle - all to shave precious grams. We can certainly see an application for the race ski and boots for a fast and light day outing.
