Heads up, Dynafit has issued a recall on the Khions because according to The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission:
“The ski boots can inadvertently switch from “ski” to “walk” mode, the boots’ upper cuffs can separate, and in the Khion Carbon model, the carbon boot shell can crack, posing a fall hazard and risk of injury to the consumer.”
The defective boots were sold at Christy Sports, Gorsuch, Jackson Hole Sports, REI, and other specialty outdoor stores nationwide and online at backcountry.com, mountaingear.com, MEC.ca, and REI.com from October 2015 through June 2016 for between $800 and $900.
The recall was issued after four reports of the ski/walk mechanism malfunctioning, seven reports of the upper cuff separating and five reports of the carbon boot shell cracking.
