The Titan TF-X is Dynafit's solution for sidecountry skiers and freeride tourers looking for best-in-class downhill performance and compatibility with all alpine style bindings. It's the boot for those who want to ski laps at the resort most of the time but still retain the capability to do some skinning or hiking out of bounds, enabled by the Titan's light weight and walking mode.

Purchased these boots new for this season. Have skied a total of 33 days in them thus far and have a few comments. Most of the time I am using the alpine sole with a pair of Marker Duke bindings. While I would prefer to use the tech compatible soles all the time, the heel piece of the Dukes started to deform the plastic. This is because the Dukes fit very tightly and the heel piece on the tech soles is slightly taller than the alpine sole.
My overall impression is that these boots are VERY stiff and are ideal for high performance descents. If loosened up properly, they also provide a high degree of mobility for the uphill. While they are not the lightest touring boots you can find, for bigger more aggressive skiers, these provide an appropriate trade off of weight for performance. Like some of the other reviews, I have found a few durability issues. The liners are not the highest quality. It felt as though they took a long time to pack out, even after the heat molding. More recently, they have begun to pack out too far, causing me to buckle the boots more tightly than the shell would prefer. As a result, the rivet on one of the toe ratchets has pulled out, so that I cannot fasten the toe buckle. Still looking for spare parts so that this can be fixed.
Will probably keep using these through the end of the season and into the next. The next step in dialing these in will be to get a pair of intuition liners and to repair the toe ratchet. With the performance and versatility of these boots, I will do whatever I can to keep them usable.
I used to rent boots but my oddly shaped feet resulted in excruciating pain, loss of circulation, and lots of down time massaging my feet back to life by the fire pit. Then I got these boots and I must say I am absolutely in love with them. They are light (especially for the price), very comfortable, they lock down tight, the walk mode is generous and I really like the way the boot looks. I skied a blue run in walk mode without knowing until I got to the bottom. Total noob mistake probably bumped the switch getting on or off the lift. They come with soles for either AT or Alpine bindings too, although switching back and forth constantly may strip out the screw holes since it's just plastic...
wear a BD Factor 27.5; got the same size in the Titan... run smaller for sure. no other commments about performance yet.
