These boots are super light and therefore great for AT racing, but as for performance they are pretty flimsy and weak.

Dynafit TLT 4 (but not all models, as they are changing) are great not only for AT racers, but also for majority of tours and descends starting from simple to extreme.

Obviously, they are softer than "hard boots" like Raichle, Nordica. TLT4 boots are the most comfortable I have ever tried. Climbing on skis and skiing are great not only for low peaks, but also up too 7,000 and 8,000 m peaks (experience of my friends and me Shisha Pangma, Peak Lenin, Peak Korzenevskoy, Peak 38).

In comparison with other shoes, it is simple and comfortable to get in with inner boots outside or inside. The change between walking and skiing mode is simple too.

Disadvantege is that: for some really extreme descends they could seem to be softer than used to be (I had used them up 55 degree steep slopes without any problem).

BTW, for especially for races Dynafit and Scarpa have other models.

Good ski mountaineering boot
These boots are very good to ski mountaineer with as they are light and agile to climb with because of the low profile toes. I replaced the liner with a lighter thermo mold one and they fit great.
Good walking mode.
They are a bit soft to ski with but makes you work on technique versus power.
