Back in stock! Latest production run of Daymakers has arrived!
The Daymakers convert any standard downhill ski setup into a powder chasing alpine touring rig in a matter of seconds.
With the great price of $575.00 including free shipping in Australia, this covers all import GST and Customs Fees as well (if you buy them from the USA, when they arrive in Australia they incur a GST of 10% on the purchase price AND shipping fee, plus a Customs processing fee of $50 to $80).
Maybe that epic storm wasn't quite so epic, and now you're skiing your 125mm underfoot boards on windbluff because it's your only AT setup, or maybe you ski the backcountry 5 days a year and it isn't worth a $1800 investment in pin-system boots and bindings?
No worries, we've got you covered.
The Daymakers Alpine Touring Adapters converts YOUR DOWNHILL ski setup into an alpine touring system in a matter of seconds!
Simply attach climbing skins to your skis, clip the Daymakers onto your boots, and step into your skis.
Once you reach the goods, Daymakers can be stepped out of with a flick of your pole and the flat, low profile design stores unobtrusively in your pack.
The revolutionary 4-Bar Tech hinge creates the most natural stride in all of ski touring by relocating the pivot from a single point in front of your toes to a linkage-driven virtual pivot that rotates directly under the balls of your feet. In simple terms, it puts back some of the motion and stability given by your toes hinging on your foot, which is taken away by the rigidity of a ski boot!
On flat terrain like approaches, ridge lines, or even mellow descents, the -3° neutral stance of the Daymakers counters the forward lean built into boots and bindings for a comfortable, upright stance, even with non walk-mode boots. When the going gets steeper there are 10° and 16° elevators that can be quickly deployed with your hand or ski pole using the Easy Levers.
