In 1950, Humanic starts manufacturing ski boots. Fifteen years later, the first ski boots with buckles are launched. In 1973, Franz Klammer wins the downhill race at Planai/Schladming, Austria, in DYNAFIT boots and, three years later, he wins the Olympic men’s downhill in Innsbruck. DYNAFIT experiences unprecedented success in the downhill World Cup when its skiers winning the event eight times in succession: 1974-75 to 1982-83. In 1980, Leonhard Stock wins an Olympic gold medal. DYNAFIT is granted permission to use the Austrian coat of arms and, one year later, the successful DYNAFIT World Cup Competition model is the worlds first ski boot to be awarded with the IAS’s Golden Seal of Approval. In 1983, DYNAFIT presents the Tourlite, a completely new design and back then was also the lightest ski/climbing boot in the world. Only two years later, DYNAFIT introduces the CDE collection (rear entry), which is the first and only Alpine ski boot at the time with GORE-TEX® Thermo Dry. In the years that follow, DYNAFIT introduces several products that are milestones in ski mountaineering history. At the start of the ‘90s, DYNAFIT launches the Tourlite Tech boot/binding combination. Considered a sensation, it is the lightest safety binding in the world for ski touring -- lighter than any other comparable binding on the market. In 2006, DYNAFIT introduces the TLT Vertical binding, followed by the “Beast” Freeride binding in 2013 and the Cho Oyu Ski - the perfect ski for all conditions in the Alps or the Himalayas.
