Athletic beginners and progressing intermediate skiers now have access to the same great fit and features that experts have been raving about in the new Tecnica Cochise 90 Ski Boots. With a snugger fit around the ankle and midfoot for 2017, and an all new super smooth walk mode mechanism, the Cochise 90 retains the relaxed instep height and smooth progressive flex that Tecnica is known for. Why settle for a huge boxy fit and mediocre performance when the Cochise 90 is just sitting there waiting for you?
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: 90 Power transmission and control in all terrain for intermediate to advanced all-mountain skiers.
Quadrafit Ultrafit Liner A comfortable, thermoformable fit featuring 3D EVA rubber ankle protector padding.
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 Polyether with co-molded softer Quick Instep insert for easy entry and exit.
Cuff Triax 3.0
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.
