Eagle, Colo., January 13, 2019After a successful 2019 launch of the Dahu Swiss Ski Boot—a ground-breaking modular design—DAHU returns in 2020-21 with the next generation of its revolutionary alpine ski boots, boots that redefine what is possible when you combine transformative innovation, design, technology, and craftsmanship. DAHU will release the next generation of the Écorce 01 and Écorce X at the OR + Snow Show in Denver, Colorado, Convention Hall, January 29th-February 1, 2020.


For 2020-21, DAHU has placed Swiss Grilamid shell technology into all four of the company’s ski boots. Providing unmatched precision, Swiss Grilamid is impervious to a wide range of temperatures and conditions, making for consistent feel and performance, run after run. The material is also remarkably light and, when coupled with DAHU’s unique shell construction, makes for a phenomenally lightweight ski boot that doesn’t sacrifice performance.

The DAHU ski boot shell is further enhanced with buckle and beam improvements, meticulous details that continue DAHU’s quest for perfection, but which other manufacturers would ignore due to cost considerations.

DAHU’s stand-along Cambium inner-boot, which can be worn anywhere, returns in 2020-21 with tasteful modifications, including POM lace loops. POM technology makes it even easier to take the inner-boot on or off, or to perform micro-adjustments to the fit, enhancing comfort and performance. In addition, a RECCO reflector is embedded in each pair of inner boots, giving an added layer of safety and searchability. With RECCO detectors in use by more than 1,000 professional ski patrollers and search and rescue organizations globally, this feature allows for anyone wearing DAHU boots to be found by professional searchers rapidly in the unfortunate event they become lost or go missing when skiing.

“We changed the way that people think about ski boots when we introduced the Écorce01 last year,” says Dahu’s Clark Gundlach. “But despite the fact that these were the most revolutionary product for skiing in years, our 2020-21 models showcase our relentless pursuit of perfection.”

The 2020-21 DAHU line features four different models of the Écorce 01. For men, the boot comes in a 120 and 135 flex. Women also have two flex choices, with 90 or 110 flex profiles available.

Écorce 01 X

While the 2020-21 edition of the Écorce 01 should fit the needs of even the most demanding skiers, this exclusive lineup will be further improved with the addition of the Écorce 01 X. The Écorce 01 X features an improved inner boot designed using technical and performance elements usually found only in high-performance footwear. Featuring best-in-class Italian leather and exclusive lightweight fabrication combined with two distinctive flex patterns for men and women, the Écorce 01 X reflects DAHU’s philosophy of constantly seeking perfection in everything the brand does.

About Dahu Sports

Dahu Sports was founded in 2008 in Châtel-Saint-Denis, a small city in the Swiss Canton of Friborg, with the intent of creating an alpine ski boot with an uncompromising synthesis of comfort, warmth, and performance. The Dahu Swiss Ski Boot—engineered in Switzerland with the precision of a fine timepiece and manufactured in Montebelluna, Italy, a town known for its craftsmanship of high-end mountaineering boots—represents the evolution of alpine ski boots and the future of skiing and ski luxury. Nestled in the foothills above Lake Geneva, Dahu Sports’ European headquarters are situated near Verbier, Chamonix, Fribourg and Saas-Fee, and Crans-Montana. The Dahu Swiss Ski Boot will be sold in specialty ski and snow retail stores nationwide.

In spring of 2019, Dahu Sports opened its North American headquarters in Eagle, Colorado, introducing a ground-breaking new modular design that completely reimagines the alpine ski boot. For fall of 2019, operations at the U.S. headquarters will be expanding. The brand is also launching a new website at
