Responsive and powerful on the descent, the Tecnica Cochise Pro Light randonee boots are compatible with Dynafit-style bindings and have a hiking mode so you can seek out untouched powder stashes. With a stiff flex index of 120, Tecnica Cochise Pro Light randonee boots provide the responsive power transfer preferred by aggressive skiers, yet weight only 3,220g per pair. Ski/hike switch frees upper cuff to work with your stride and makes it easy to hike for your turns. Steel and aluminum, metal-pin-to-metal-plate connection locks the upper cuff to the lower shell when you're ready to ski and allows you to really flex into your skis. Lightweight, mono-injected polymer shell is designed to make it easy going uphill, and it provides the responsive power you need on the way back down. Boots come with tech soles installed that allow compatibility with Dynafit-style bindings and other randonee bindings; alpine DIN-compatible soles are available separately. Soft plastic over instep makes it easy to get your feet in the boots. Liners offer superior heel hold, complete foot envelopment and rubberized shock absorption in the tongue, foot and heel. Custom-formable liners can be heated in a specialty ski shop to achieve a personalized fit. Neoprene toe boxes increase warmth in feet and absorb vibrations. Instep catch is hinged, allowing excellent pressure distribution; plus, it pivots away from the shell, letting the shell spread for easy entry. Cuff alignment system aligns the cuff to follow the shape of the lower leg increasing comfort and enhancing performance. Tecnica Cochise 120 ski boots also feature removable spoilers and sticky arches designed for hiking in snow.
Run light, fast, and deep in the backcountry with the Tecnica Cochise Pro Light Alpine Touring Boot. With the same standout traits as the other members of this tribe, the Cochise Pro Light gives you swiftness for your ascent and stiffness for your descent, and it's lighter than its big brother the Cochise 120. At first glance, the Cochise Pro Light has the appearance of an alpine boot, and in some ways it is one, but it also retains its primary purpose as a skin-track-crushing AT boot. The stiff 120 flex shreds cornices and couloirs while the ultra lightweight Triax shell and Mobility Cuff System allow you to get there without utter exhaustion. The sole blocks are interchangeable so you can switch out the included AT/Tech binding sole block for an alpine binding sole block (sold separately), and the three wire-bail buckles are micro-adjustable and positioned just right so you get support for shredding and freedom for striding. Tecnica's engineers even devised an system that allows you to adjust the flex resistance and rebound of the cuff with a twist of a dial--dial it down for the backcountry and up for the tram. For the skier who wants one boot that can serve double-duty for in and out of bounds, the Cochise Pro is a gift from On High. Tecnica basically stripped down the Cochise 120 to create the Cochise Pro Light. The Pro Light uses a lighter, thinner liner boot, wire-bail instead of a alpine-style buckles, a flexible booster strap instead of a buckle booster strap, and the lower portion is made of single density instead of dual density plastic. With the exception of a slightly altered fit as a result of these changes, you sacrifice nothing in the way of performance. The Cochise Pro Light AT boot can take on multi-hour slogs in the backcountry or days of driving a freeride or powder ski at the resort.
The Tecnica Cochise Pro Light AT ski boots are designed for the AT specialist, and has no rivals in the game. Built to be super lightweight for those long treks into the backcountry, it won't disappoint when it comes to the performance on those hard earned turns. For sure, the only 120 flex boot out there that weighs in at 1610 gr (size 26.5). Hands down, these Tecnica AT boots will blow you away with their performance for such an incredibly lighweight boot. The engineered Cuff Mobility System offers a great range of motion for the uphill climb but locks solidly with a metal to metal connection into ski mode for the ripping ride down. Comes with Tech soles but with the ability to switch out for a DIN sole. A thermoformable Palau liner weighing in at 1610 grams rounds out the lightweight package. For the ultimate in downhill performance and backcountry touring, the Tecnica Cochise Boots are a sure fit. Color: Acid Green - Black. Sizes: 26.5 - 30.5 MP. Flex: 120. Last: 100 mm. Weight: 1610 g (3.5 lbs)
