On the hunt for powder with the
DYNAFIT TIGARD 130
Fast as a snow leopard on the climb, strong as a Tiger on the descent. With the development of the high-end Alpine Tech boot TIGARD 130, DYNAFIT supports descent-oriented athletes to be not only the first on the summit but also the first to lay first tracks in fresh pow – First up. First down.
Maximum freedom of motion, flexibility, and comfort
The Tigard 130 boot is an aggressive high-end Alpine Tech boot for the highest performance. DYNAFIT combines its expertise and innovations from the Free touring and Alpine ski segments and, with that, delivers the answer for all climbers who want to be the first to conquer the summit to earn a brilliant downhill in untouched powder. With a weight of 1,590 grams (Mondo, 26.5), the Tigard boot is the lightest model of its class.
First-class product features
As with all ski touring boots from DYNAFIT, the Tigard too is made by hand in Italy’s Montebelluna and features the DYNAFIT Lifetime Guarantee.
Thanks to its unique Grilamid material with carbon fibers and a progressive flex of 130, the Tigard 130 offers especially high rigidity, making it ideally suitable for pros and heavier skiers. It features an ideal power transfer to the ski and proves itself both on high-intensity climbs and speedy downhills in fresh powder as a perfect partner. In downhill mode, the Tigard 130 locks out at a max forward lean of 13 degrees, and thus offers a comfortable, yet still athletic and controlled ski position.
From winter 2023/24, the Tigard boot is available in two versions (130 and 110) and thus better addresses the individual needs of downhill enthusiasts among mountain athletes.
DYNAFIT Hoji-Lock System
DYNAFIT places great value on reliability and experience. Therefore, the boot integrates the patented DYNAFIT Hoji Lock System, which unifies the cuff and shell on the boot’s interior to an inseparable and totally interlocking unit without any play. The result: optimum stability and control on the descent.
Its Overlap construction, which DYNAFIT borrowed from the Alpine boot segment for the Touring segment, targets fit and envelops the foot precisely – for direct power transfer and precision downhills. With a last width of 101 mm, the Power Strap and four micro-adjustable buckles hold the foot snugly in place.
Great cuff rotation with an open Hoji Lock System in combination with the boot liner construction enables effortless on and off, which DYNAFIT rightfully labels Easy Entry.
To make sure you get to your perfect line even over rocks and icy flanks, the Tigard boot comes with the new Gripwalk sole. It offers traction when walking out of the binding, is especially stable and durable, and makes the boot compatible with frame, tech as well as alpine bindings. In addition, the boot is compatible with fully automatic crampons to lend even more safety on tour in difficult conditions.
An additional special feature of the Tigard boot is the new, thermomoldable Dynafitter 15 boot liner, that lends comfy insulation with its PrimaLoft material. The boot liner has impressive fit and is a real all-rounder for long tours with a lot of vert. It offers comfort, the necessary rigidity – and that at a weight of only 350 grams with a thickness of 15 mm.
