    Manufacturer's Description

    When you first try on the Tecnica Mach 1 130, remember that the liner is designed to be worked on like an exterior shell. This is why it’s absent of the cushy wads of foam found in many comparable boots. In fact, I found this boot to be flat-out uncomfortable out of the box. But a few shell and liner modifications later, the Mach 1 130 LV was one of the most perfectly fitting boots I’ve ever slid my foot into.

    The Tecnica Mach 1 130 flex is more progressive than your average two-piece overlap-style boot, and I couldn’t find high enough speeds on crummy enough snow to push through it. The Mach 1’s modular design is a valuable feature for the DIY crowd that’s hard on their equipment. Nearly every part on this boot is replaceable with a Phillips screwdriver, and Tecnica’s kick-ass customer service department is great at getting you the parts you need in a hurry. Although much of the upright-skiing millennial population may find the 12 degrees of forward lean to be a bit much, those big mountain guys who “used to race‰” will love it. —Alex Buecking

    Mach 1 Pro W LV

    Manufacturer's Description

    Tecnica’s Mach 1 Pro W LV doesn’t mess around. With a 115 flex and design that focuses on a more upright stance specific to the female anatomy, I felt like this boot effortlessly drove my skis down the hill.

    It is part of Tecnica’s new women’s boot collection, born from the creation of their new Women to Women (W2W) project—an initiative to connect women’s specific products to the women’s skiing community. The Mach 1 Pro W LV boasts the Custom Shape Cuff Adapter that allows bootfitters to easily mold the upper cuff to the shape of a women’s lower leg, and a newly engineered fiber, called celliant, that contains minerals that turn body heat into infrared energy to reflect back onto the foot. In short, these boots are great for ripping up the resort, and keeping the feet warm, even on frigid East Coast days. —Caitlin Kelly

    Zero G Guide Pro W

    $840.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Zero G Guide Pro from Tecnica is a legit touring boot that skis like an alpine boot. The traditional four-buckle, overlap design brings power and energy to the table and a beefy 45-millimeter power strap adds noticeable stiffness to a 115 flex. Bi-injected Grilamid keeps the stiffness and weight in an appropriate range for a touring boot (1660 grams) thanks in part to the inherent strength-to-volume ratio of the plastic.

    Dimples on common fit problem areas (like both sides of the widest part of your forefoot) act as a roadmap for bootfitters on the anatomically shaped lower shell and cuff, so heating and punching out the 99-millimeter last shell is easier.

    Tecnica’s Women to Women initiative designed the Zero G Guide Pro from the ground up to ensure fit, features, and performance. Bottom line: Performance so dialed you’ll forget you’re wearing a touring boot.
