You can buy carbon-fiber rando racing boots lighter than that, but unless you are a professional racer with big-time sponsors, young skiers can't afford the several thousands of dollars. If you're old enough to have the money, you don't have the youthful energy and stamina to get the benefit. Just shoot me now.

If someone gave me a pair of DyNAs I'd love to ski 'em!

This boot has no lean lock and almost no forward stiffness, and is thus built for flat and rolling miles in the cold, rather than charging the gnargnar.

I heard them running around downstairs when I woke up this morning.

The toungue on the intuitions liners chaffed my ankle pretty badly, so I replace them with some overlap liners, cut down. They need to broken in a bit after the molding, but take up a bit more space around my skinny ankles which is very welcome.

These boots are fantastic. I did a ski trip this weekend. Unbroken trail, soft and punchy on day one, icey as heck on day two. No too much up and down, but plenty of variable weirdness, skinny trail, melted out tree wells, and weird stream half-collapsed snow bridges across streams. These boots, with good forward motion but lots of side to side rigidity, are the ticket for that sort of nonesense. Sold.
