There's a lot of gnar out there that needs to be slayed, so quit wasting time and strap into the Tecnica Cochise 130 Pro Men's Ski Boot. It's the burliest boot in Tecnica's freeride touring line, designed to shred everything from groomers to powder to steep lines to day-old chop with power, precision, and a supreme fit. Indeed, the lower shell has been redesigned with a more anatomical heel pocket for increased hold, a more comfortable asymmetrical toe box, and a lower-volume 98mm last for a snug, precise fit that helps to eliminate slop on the up and the down. The new Cochise also has eight degrees more cuff rotation than its predecessor, making the trip up easier than ever--just flip the switch on the Cuff Mobility System and steam up the skin track like a man on a mission. With a 130 flex, though, no one's confusing the Cochise for a light and fast rando boot. It makes its money on the downhills, with powerful performance that shares DNA with Tecnica's famously burly race boots. The new shell, made of Triax 2. 0, is 10% lighter yet more durable and responsive than older versions, and the PowerLock top buckle and power strap cinch down the snug UltraFit Pro liner to provide serious power transmission without plug-boot discomfort. The last has been slimmed down to 98mm for a high-performance fit, and the burly aluminum buckles lock the shell down around your foot for high-powered retention when you're opening things up down big in- and out-of-bounds faces. Even with all this, the Cochise stays comfortable and manageable, thanks to a flexible Quick Instep panel in the front of the boot, which makes it easy to get your feet in and out even in icy weather.
Tecnica Cochise 130 Pro Ski Boots - Men's.

The often copied but never replicated benchmark of free ride boots, the 130 comes back for 2014 with significant upgrades after 2 years of extensive athlete feedback. The all-new lower shell of the 98mm lasted Cochise 130 features a more anatomical, defined heel pocket, lower internal volume and more toe room. The new lower shell also gives the Cuff Mobility system an incredible 8deg more articulation. This makes climbing, boot packing and the stride while skinning even more efficient. A new plastic, Triax 2.0 is 10% lighter yet responsive and is more durable than the previous versions. The interchangeable footprint gives you the option of running DIN with TecniGrip or Tech compatible soles. The rubber arch grip provides even more traction when scrambling up the Palisades or stepping into the heli. The 130 flex along with the power lock buckle gives the upper a great wrap around the lower leg making sure you get 100% dependable performance. An all-new QuadraFit pro liner offers an even better fit tension and is more resistant to pack out. This boot had several of Tecnica's team riders finally trade in their race boots for good.
