After two seasons of fast-and-light ski tourists singing the praises of Dynafit
's TLT 5 Series boots, the Ultra-Lock Buckle System is being expanded to a new line of performance "free touring" boots for 2013. The Dynafit
Mercury TF Alpine Touring Ski Boot is the middle offering in the lineup, both in price and stiffness, and uses Grilamid® for both the cuff and shell construction. The Ultra-Lock system drops the weight of this high performance boot to 1600 grams, and a new dual-pivot top buckle design helps keep it from catching on rocks and branches on the ascent. With an incredible cuff rotation range of 60˚ but near alpine stiffness for the descent once buckled up, this boot will let you rock the skintrack on the way up and still ski like you always have on the down.

Dynafit TF Liner - Thermoformable TF liner is heat moldable, warm and comfy. This liner features unique flex zones and optional lacing.
Shell - Grilamid® construction for stiffness without the weight
Cuff - Fiberglass reinforced Grilamid®
Insulation - A special expanded polyurethane layer is glued inside the shell for warmth.
Adjustable Forward Lean - 15˚- 18˚ and release mode for walking/skinning
Cuff Rotation - 60˚ rotation for maximum skinning efficiency
Ski/walk mode with 60˚ cuff rotation is activated by top Ultra-Lock buckle.
Driving Spoiler - The rear spoiler slides inside the cuff for the widest possible range of movement while skinning.
Removable Downhill Booster Tongue - This stiff tongue allows you to drive even the biggest of skis but can be removed for skinning.
Central Buckle - Anatomically placed in line with the shell pivot point to pull your heel directly into the heel pocket and keep the shell from deflecting
Ultra-Lock Upper Buckle - The Ultra-Lock system doubles as a closure mechanism and lean lock, doing away with the weight and bulk of traditional lean/lock systems. The double-hinging buckle lies flatter to avoid catching on rocks and bushes while climbing.
Buckle Cable Retention System - Central and cuff buckles are equipped with a special retention system that prevents them from opening regardless of tension.
Switch Power Strap - VELCRO® Brand Fastener power strap can be fixed to the tongue for easier tongue removal and to prevent flapping while skinning.
Dynafit Pro Touring Sole - Rubber touring sole with harder plastic TPU "pegs" in contact areas for better skiing response with non-tech bindings
