The Tecnica Cochise 130 is a serious boot for a serious skier. The boot of choice for 2018 Freeride World Tour winner Leo Slemet, this ski boot is a stiff, race inspired freeride boot with tech inserts and a walk mode for touring capabilities. It will pretty much do anything.
Tecnica has shaved weight from their Cochise 130 by using Power Light Design - think strong, light plastics to make it easy on the way up, and powerful on the way down. The walk mode through the spine of the boot unlocks the cuff to allow 42° range of motion, and combined with the tech inserts will make easy touring if you're using a tech binding. For those of us with a quiver of skis, using the standard DIN ISO5355 soles that come in the box will mean you can jump into whatever bindings you've got without having to worry about adjusting toe height.
Tecnica helps out your boot fitter through their Custom Adaptive Shape systems, which highlight common areas on the boot and makes them easier to modify. Common expansion spots on the shell are made obvious with dimpled plastic. On the outside of the anatomical preshaped liner, foam which can be ground down to increase volume can be found throughout the heel pocket.
