Starting this winter, all Dynafit tech bindings will carry a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects. Under the new plan, bindings that cannot be repaired will be replaced for free.
The lifetime guarantee will apply to all tech bindings going forward, starting with those from the 2019-20 model year. The company’s website offers further details on the plan. “As of November 1st, 2019, your warranty on DYNAFIT bindings will extend to a LIFETIME GUARANTEE once they are registered online. Please note, this doesn’t mean your personal lifespan, but rather it refers to the lifespan of your bindings materials, components, and engineering. In the case of DYNAFIT bindings, that amounts to 10 years.”
Dynafit offered the tech binding more than 35 years ago, taking a radical departure in design from conventional ski touring bindings. With the Dynafit tech binding, the ski boot is attached directly to the ski via two metal pins that engage with inserts in the toe of the boot. The tech binding not only trims binding weight; it also makes climbing significantly more efficient.
According to Dynafit, recent sales numbers and statistics prove that more than 70 percent of all ski touring bindings are frameless, and most current ski boots are compatible with tech bindings. Working closely with the inventor, Fritz Barthel, Dynafit was the first manufacturer to produce this frameless tech system and remains the worldwide market leader.
Dynafit offers twelve tech binding models this season, and each is designed to meet the unique demands of different touring users, from competitive ski mountaineering to classic ski touring, to free touring.
