Ski touring specialist DYNAFIT, the world’s market leader for tech bindings, underscores its quality standard and its confidence in its products with an important development: From the winter season 2019-20 onwards, all DYNAFIT tech bindings will carry a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects. If a repair is not possible, the binding will be replaced free of charge.
More than 35 years ago, DYNAFIT revolutionized ski touring with the introduction of the tech binding. Unlike conventional touring bindings which have a frame, in a tech binding the ski boot is attached directly via two metal pins that engage with inserts in the toe of the boot. This not only saves a lot of weight, it also makes climbing significantly more efficient. According to current sales statistics, more than 70 percent of all ski touring bindings are frameless, and almost all ski touring boots are compatible with tech bindings. Working closely with the inventor, Fritz Barthel, DYNAFIT was the first manufacturer to produce this system, and remains the worldwide market leader. In the current lineup there are 12 tech binding models designed to meet the various demands of different touring users, from competitive ski mountaineering, to classic ski touring, to free touring.
All DYNAFIT bindings are manufactured in Germany. The ski touring specialist has for many years embodied corporate social responsibility by working with Caritas, whose workshops employing the disabled are located close to Passau. Each individual binding is manufactured by hand in these workshops, where they are also subjected to a variety of endurance and safety tests.
The degree of confidence that DYNAFIT has in the quality of its product is now underscored by an important development: All bindings sold as of the winter season 2019-20 will carry a lifetime warranty. Following the purchase of a binding, the consumer will register the serial number on the DYNAFIT website. This automatically extends the warranty from two to ten years, which is the expected lifespan of a ski touring binding. The warranty covers all material and manufacturing defects. Any binding which fails will be repaired by DYNAFIT free of charge. If a repair is not possible, the binding will be replaced by a binding of equal or greater value. Issues that result from normal wear and tear or from incorrect usage, or damage caused by accidents are excluded from warranty coverage.
