Dynafit is extending its tech-binding warranty from two to 10 years. The brand is calling the new policy a lifetime warranty, referring to the expected decade-long lifetime of the product. It will apply to bindings purchased during or after the 2019–20 season.
For more than 30 years, Dynafit has tracked how its bindings perform, how often they are warrantied, and how long they are typically used, said the company.
Warranties from most binding brands range from one to three years. But Ross Herr, Dynafit’s sales and marketing manager, says the timing of this decision is a response to improvements in manufacturing that have resulted in increased durability. “We have seen this huge reduction in breakage and warranty over the past several years,” says Herr. “We don’t see problems within the ten-year expected lifespan of the binding.”
The new warranty states that Dynafit will repair or replace any registered bindings that fail due to manufacturer defects during the time frame. With good care and normal use, the company says that skiers can expect their bindings to last through the end of the new warranty.
