Tecnica Zero G Tour Scout - Men's
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Zero G Tour Scout Alpine Touring Boot is Tecnica's second-stiffest, second-lightest ski boot for backcountry skiers who want an aggressive downhill ride without weighing down the uphill. Its 120 flex is plenty stiff for hard-charging skiers. Unlike most ultralight ski boots, the Zero G features a new double-blocking, self-adjusting cuff that reduces every kind of play for a locked in feel. Four light Magnesium buckles and a slimmer power strap solidify the boot's secure fit, and Tecnica designed the cuff's buckles so you can keep them latched together on the ascent. Tecnica built the boot's shell out of a dimpled Grilamid material that bootfitters can easily punch out to customize the fit to your foot's specific contours. The Ultralight fit liner has a comfortable fit right out of the box, and it's backed with a waterproof, breathable membrane to stay comfy when you're boot-packing through knee-deep powder. The rockered sole promotes walking, hiking, and climbing thanks to the grip- and abrasion-resistant Vibram rubber. Unlatched, the Zero G boasts a massive 55of cuff rotation to provide the easiest ascent possible. It's compatible with tech bindings.
The Tecnica Zero G Tour Scout Alpine Touring Ski Boots take the place of last season's Zero G Guide in the lineup, and aim for better pure touring performance (as opposed to "crossover" performance). Lighter, arguably stiffer, and with a redesigned walk mode and non-replaceable ISO 9523 sole, the Tour Scout looks to be a "best buy" in the sub-1500 gram touring boot segment, and seems assured of a "best skiing touring boot" award as the season progresses.
Don't sacrifice downhill performance in your AT boots. Tecnica Zero G Tour Scout ski boots weigh just 1,360 grams and offer 55deg range of motion in hike mode to take you as far as you want to go.
