Dynafit are synonymous with fast paced summer and winter sports and so we are extremely happy to announce that Dynafit are now the ‘headline’ sponsor for the epic and ultra technical Scafell Sky Race.
A little history:
In 1950 Humanic (predecessors to Dynafit) start producing ski boots and 15 year5s later they make the first buckle ski boot.
In the 70’s the famous Austrian skier, Franz Klammer, wins the downhill race at Schladming in Dynafit boot and then 3 years later he wins the ‘Downhill’ discipline in Innsbruck at the Olympic Games. Klammer goes on to be one of the greatest downhill skiers of all time.
Dynafit continues to innovate over the next few decades with the first ski boot to win the IAS’s Golden Seal of Approval, next they produce the lightest ski/climbing boot in the world. During the 1990’s Dynafit introduce several products that remain as milestone products in the development of ski touring and mountaineering. Into the new Millennium and Dynafit conditues to develop, shaping the way for Ski Mountaineer Racing with the lightest boots and bindings in the world, other milestone developments happen along the way and pushing into this decade Team Dynafit, made of top level endurance athletes, cross the European Alps taking in four iconic peaks: Zugspitze (Germany), Similaun (Austria), Ortler (Italy) and Piz Palu (Switzerland) in 4 countries over 4 days!
Next comes the summer range and year round training and racing in Dynafit clothing and equipment is realised. Dynafit cover Vertical Running, Alpine Running and Ultra Running to complete and fantastic range of running clothing and equipment. 2 years later they develop ‘Speed Mountaineering’ clothing to complete the whole ensemble for athletes to be able to perform at all disciplines necessary to compete at a high level whether ski mountaineering, sky running or just have fun moving as ‘fast and light’ in the mountains as possible.
Finally in 2018 Dynafit UK commit to the epic and extremely technical Scafell Sky Race to become the headline sponsor for this ‘World Championship’ qualifying event.
