Also note that the slider plate is only long enough to accommodate boot sizes up to about 28.5/29 with a direct mount. Barrows Any chance you could post some photos of the Burton race plates mounted?

They sold the boot for $466 USD with $35 shipping. Snowinn.com is based in Spain. Didn’t have to pay any custom taxes or duties and the boots arrived in 4 days. Thumbs up on this transaction. Well that is a good price. I do tend to buy some things online and other from local shops.hopefully the small guy stays in business.hate to see a huge walmart with a desert of closed shops/for lease signs around it. November 3, 2011 at 3:40 pm #638537 Zak 74 Posts New TLT5’s on the way! :rock: :bananas: I will likely have a set of TLT4 Race Pro’s up for sale, size 27. They look like this – http://www.backcountry.com/dynafit-tlt-4-race-pro-tf-boot Great shape – I split time on them and my soft boots over one season – let me know if you’re interested, I’ll sell them cheap. November 3, 2011 at 5:10 pm #638538 UTAH 830 Posts Zak super interested in your old TLT 4’s, I’m not sure if I could fit a 9 I wear a ten but would love to see especially if your selling cheap. Just bought some DEELUXE boots but I’m with you and like to split between the two, just couldn’t afford new hardboots. Let’s talk soon. November 4, 2011 at 1:52 am #638539 Taylor 792 Posts For those riding these boots – are they sized accurately, or do they tend run large or small relative to one’s foot size? @sun_rocket November 4, 2011 at 2:48 am #638540 Zak 74 Posts I’d say they run maybe a half size small – dynafit’s size chart says 27 mondopoint is a 9, but I wear an 8.5 street shoe and their 27 fits me great. 26.5 was too short. I think the half sizes are just thinner liners in the same shell – i.e., the 26.5 is a thinner liner in a 26 shell. November 4, 2011 at 6:07 am #638541 akmooserider 11 Posts I wear size 10.5 salomon GTX trail running shoes and size 11.5 Burton Driver X’s. The 29 is perfect lengthwise, and very snug midfoot. On another note, the walkmode in these boots is amazing. Night and day better then touring in the Burtons. November 8, 2011 at 5:36 pm #638543 Sog-Nar 24 Posts Regarding size… I measure 10.5 USA, and the boot fitters at my local shop put me in a TLT 5 Mountain size 28. On another note, I just finished modifying a burton race plate binding to the voile slider plate. Seemed like there is some interest in this thread in pairing this binding set up to the TLT5. I’ll post some pictures of the build process and finished product. Here is the link (I put the thread in the binding forum) viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12003 November 8, 2011 at 6:10 pm #638544 barrows 1490 Posts Another sizing data point: I am a US 10.5/11 in most stuff, and am in a 28 TLT5. I woudl not want to go to a larger shell, as the close fit and anatomical shape of this boot is a big part of it’s high performance. November 11, 2011 at 11:21 pm #638545 TravelingAce 5 Posts Now this might be a ridiculous question, I don’t know yet, but would these boots perform good without switching my spark bindings? Can I ride these boots in my regular bindings? Since I’ve never seen nor heard of this I’ll assume no, but what do you think? I’m not a gear head, just a BC snow fanatic. I’m relatively new to spliting but not to riding and certainly not to exploring the backcountry! That said, I NEED new boots, been riding some old burtons for what must be the last 8 years or so (it’s foolish, I know, but I just never really paid my boots much attention until a 10 day BC splity tour last spring in which I struggled to maintain dry feet.) With the release of the spark boot, that’s the direction I am leaning but, wow, people really seem to love these boots! And I will certainly be needing something capable of steep rock and ice bootin both with and without crampons. The lighter weight, the better! Cheers November 11, 2011 at 11:51 pm #638546 Zak 74 Posts Nah, these are meant to be used with dynafit toe pieces (for ski mode) and plate bindings (which bolt to the Voile tracks and rides up in your pack). They’d be pretty awful in a strap binding.

Cheers No, do not bother to try that, the boots would not fit the bindings vey well, and the riding performance would suck. Also you would not save any weight: the weight savings with these boots comes from the light weight plate binding, at more than a pound lighter than a Spark binding, not from the boots (which weigh about the as a Burton Driver X). November 12, 2011 at 5:56 am #638548 TravelingAce 5 Posts Thanks guys. Yeah, I figured such but ya never know, ya know. It’s been 15 years since I’ve skied and a long time since I’ve bought new boots, I’m kinda out of the loop. And was just never stoked on staying up with gear. Leaning now towards the Sparks boots but certainly going to be looking into the tlt5 and some plate bindings. Cheers November 21, 2011 at 4:25 pm #638549 norriegga 25 Posts I’m curious what boot stance angles you are running with your dynafit AT boots. I run an older set of dynafit TLT4’s with Bomber plate bindings. My stance angles are (approx.) +15 up front and +9 in the rear. Each binding is canted by 4 degrees inward (leaning toward the centre of the board). I’m now setting up a second board for traveling in the backcountry with kites. It’s a twin tip Prior AMF and I am setting it up duck stance. Does anyone ride ducky with AT or hard boots? Would I cant this setup similar to my other board? I’m curious because it would be the least amount of work for me to simply use my existing bindings interchangeably. Otherwise, I’ll order up a pair of Voile plates. One more lingering question from this thread, did anyone ever have a chance to try out the Dynafit TLT5 with the Bomber splitboard binding? I’m itching to find out whether the boot will fit securely with the thick wire bail of the Bomber. Thanks, Steve November 21, 2011 at 4:40 pm #638550 barrows 1490 Posts Same stance here with soft or hard boots: 30-27 degrees front foot 15-12 degrees rear foot I might adjust some to match board width, as my effective board widths vary somewhat. With appropriate mods to the TLT5, I would expect you could ride them duck with no problems. November 21, 2011 at 4:58 pm #638551 norriegga 25 Posts I’m a little nervous even trying out a duck like stance after so many years riding with both toes pointing forward… Did you get a chance to try the TLT5 boots with the Bomber binding yet? November 22, 2011 at 2:40 am #638552 Crooked Thumbs 8 Posts I finally got around to trying these on today and I was pretty impressed. Super light! Got sized for a 29. Barrows, I see you’re riding a size 28-do you think the slider plate could accommodate a size 29 with the raceplate combo (sole length 317mm)? Anyone else rocking these in a 29 with burton raceplates and got them to fit on the slider plate? November 22, 2011 at 5:13 pm #638553 Wasatch_Don 101 Posts As an update, I’ve been using these with some Bomber Sidewinder bindings and they are working well so far. They don’t feel like they will twist in the binding or pull out at all. I have next week off of work and will continue to stress them but so far so good.
