Tecnica Cochise 120 Ski Boot
COLOR & SIZE:
The all new Cochise is changing the game when it comes to Side Country skiing. This boot offers touring capability with the Interchangeable Soles and Cuff Mobility System, without sacrificing downhill performance. Gone are the days of choosing between the convenience of a better "up" boot versus a kick butt alpine "down" boot. Get the Cochise and get it all. A Cochise Light Liner that makes the boot 1 lb. 3 oz. lighter per pair is available to purchase (In Parts).
Winner of the Powder Magazine's Skier's Choice Fantasy Draft, Powder says: "These boots are the next step in the solution for anyone that's ever needed the stiffness of an alpine boot but missed their walk mode and Vibram sole. With tech and DIN soles available and a powerful buckle system power strap, these boots have the best of both worlds. Since there is no real standardized system for flex indexes, the 120 flex doesn't compare directly with the 120 of a strictly alpine boot. But it's certainly stiffer than other brands' AT boots claiming the same number. I would happily ski these inbounds all day and even more happily turn on the walk mode for a sidecountry hike, sled lap, or apres time." Ian Fohrman
