Here's what other sites are saying:
For years, there was a common perception that a boot built to tour uphill couldn't possibly ski well going down. Well, the Vulcan TF Alpine Touring Boot from Dynafit is here to shatter that perception. In the skintrack, there are a number of features to love about the Vulcan, starting with the weight--these bad boys come in at just about 3. 5 pounds per boot, extremely lightweight for a boot this stiff. The 103mm last is plenty roomy for your toes on the way up, which is especially nice to help maintain good circulation on colder days. The 60-degree cuff rotation should be plenty for even the most ardent yoga enthusiasts. Honestly, if your ankle is rotating past 60-degrees, you should probably be concerned about that, not your boot. The beauty of the Vulcan is that the fun doesn't stop when you get to the top of your run. Simply plug in the removable downhill booster tongue and your boot becomes a stiff, freeriding machine. The boot is plenty skiable without the cuff however, for lighter riders, or if you just feel like skiing a more forgiving boot for a run. The Vulcan sports three metal buckles, one of them being an innovative, new centrally located buckle directly on the shell pivot points. When engaged, it helps to keep the cuff and shell compressed, adding to increased stiffness throughout the entire boot. The Dynafit Pro Freeride sole features three different rubber compounds for use on both the uphill and the downhill. There is a soft rubber that offers excellent grip on slipper rock ridges, a hard substance designed to work with modern step-in binding systems, and a medium rubber that is a good compromise for areas that need grip but are subject to high amounts of abrasion as well.
The Dynafit Vulcan revolutionized touring boots when it first came out and has stuck around because of how well the boot performs. Coming in at 1613 grams and having 60 degrees of motion in the cuff these boots excel at going up. The performance does not stop when you get to the top. When you buckle these bad boots down you get a very laterally stiff boot with excellent progressive flex. There is a removable tongue that will allow you to change how stiff the boot is feeling for personal preference or when you are driving a smaller ski and do not want the extra stiffness. The Vulcan is constructed with a 103mm last for all day comfort when touring and the boots innovative midfoot buckle that sits directly over the calcaneus keeps your foot locked down. THe heat moldable liner provides an even better fit and helps to keep your foot warm. The buckle retention system prevents the buckles from moving position when they are unbuckled. The Vulcan also uses Dynafit's Ultralock system 2.0 to speed up the transition and make it very difficult to ski down in tour mode. When you decide to hike in these boots to reach your peak you will be very happy with the Dyn Pro Alpine sole's grip and durability. The Vulcan works excellently on both the uphill and the downhill, for the skier that really likes to hike but does not mind having lift service access every once in awhile.
