You used to race. You still charge hard, but are in it for the pow and steeps and sometimes a bit of touring for fresh tracks. Consider the new Tecnica Cochise 105 W Ski Boots to fill that elusive "one boot quiver" slot.Not plug boot stiff, but with plenty of support for ripping steeps and tight tree lines, the Cochise 105 W features a new super smooth walk mode mechanism and a more precise fit around the ankle and midfoot than previous Cochise boots. A new bi-injected polyether shell is bootfitter-friendly and encourages customization, and the famous Tecnica progressive flex and snow feel are better than ever. Tecnica's Mobility Cuff walk mode leads the category for smoothness and range of motion, and the Cochise 105 W comes standard with genuine Dynafit tech inserts, so transitioning to tour mode is a breeze.
Last: 99 mm – Performance fit and above average instep height for average width feet.
evo Bootfitter's Notes – The 2017 Cochise lasts are a departure from the previous Cochise line. Gone are the different fits for the 130 flex and all the others; the entire Cochise line shares a brand new 99 mm last. Narrower in the midfoot and heel than any previous version, with reduced volume around the ankle and slightly lower instep, the new Cochise also has a less pointy toebox. The new polyether plastic punches well without the tendency to attract fingerprints that characterized older Tecnica Triax blends, and the C.A.S markings at typical problem areas (first and fifth met heads, navicular, styloid process) are quite accurate for most feet (care should be taken when punching at the bi-injection seams on the shell).
C.A.S. Shell – Custom Adaptive Shape shells are anatomically formed around the heel and problem areas at the factory. Common punch zones are plainly marked with a dot grid pattern on the shell, and the new polyether and Triax 3.0 shell materials offer improved stability when heated.
Quick Instep – A shaped plastic component at the instep that is softer than the rest of the shell helps you to step into and out of the ski boot.
C.A.S. Grindable Boot Board – The removable C.A.S. boot board offers plenty of thickness for grinding and a grid pattern for reference.
Flex: 105 – Powerful, stiff flex for expert level women freeriders.
Women's Quadrafit Ultrafit Pro Wool Liner – Thin and responsive pre-formed liner offers superior performance and fit. Merino wool construction is extremely soft and comfortable.
C.A.S. Liner Technology – C.A.S. Technology focuses on the critical fit areas of the foot to achieve an accurate anatomical shape using dual density pre-shaped thermoformed microcell material. This provides a great out-of-the-box fit for enhanced sensitivity and power transmission all while allowing for liner customization.
Power Light Design – Bi-injected polyether frame that is 30% thinner and 2.5 times stiffer than conventional boot material which results in 18% weight savings without loss in performance.
Shell – C.A.S. Bi-material polyether with co-molded softer Quick Instep insert for easy entry and exit.
Cuff – Triax 3.0 women's profile with 10 mm lower cuff height and scalloped rear.
Adjustable Cuff Alignment
Mobility Cuff Walk/Ski Mode – Tecnica's redesigned walk mode features a 42˚ range of leg movement, a super smooth pivot action, and metal-to-metal contact in the locking mechanism. The new S.A.S (Self-Adjusting System) tightens the locking action as the metal wears to eliminate play.
