The Tecnica Zero G Pro is the benchmark for 4-buckle, overlap alpine touring boots. It is lightweight, walks well, and skis even better. When it comes to touring boots, we all want a stiff and agile boot, but one that doesn't weigh an absurd amount. Tecnica has completely overhauled the Zero G Pro with the idea that a lightweight and stiff ski boot can be one-in-the-same.
The Zero G Pro comes in at an astounding 1300 grams and maintains a consistent 130 flex rating, making this boot a lightweight downhill machine you can use day-in and day-out. Tecnica broke down the boot and revamped almost every piece of the design after the 2018 season. This allowed them to cut almost 250 grams from the weight of the boot, making it one of the lightest 130 flex touring boots on the market. The use of a Grilamid gives the Zero G Pro a responsiveness and stiffness that won't break down as fast as other plastics used in the touring world. The Cuff has an added co-injected carbon mold giving it a slight cut in weight and the required stiffness for top-skiing performance.
Tecnica has added a new "hook" to its walk/ski locking system that will give the cuff a whopping 55 degrees of rotation in walk mode, and absolutely secures the cuff to the boot when you switch to ski mode.
It's a fact that the Tecnica Zero G Pro Tour was one of our quickest to sell last season. It is also a fact that they ski like an alpine boot and tour like the best lightweight uphill touring boots. So, get them while they last!

First, the boot. It's excellent. It's exactly what I had been looking for. Possibly the closest to a true 130 Flex boot that I've come across that sacrifices nothing when it comes to weight and cuff range of motion. I may articulate the forward lean a degree or so, to provide a touch more of an aggressive stance as I felt the slightest bit upright (but no where near as upright as past Scarpa models, which would be the nearest comparison to range of motion and stiffness in my opinion). That said, the Zero G is one of the best skiing AT focused boots I've experienced to date.
Second, and more important, the people/experience at Cripple Creek Backcountry. Research all you might, nothing can replace having a knowledgeable gear tech to speak to in your buying process. I felt immediately welcome in the shop, and found the staff to be more than willing to go above and beyond to share specifics of the gear both in their shop and others in the industry for comparison. In the off chance that they weren't absolutely certain of the specifics, they were not the least bit hesitant to look into product catalogs or research further, rather than speculate. It was clear to me that this wasn't a shop full of employees, but rather a family of gear junkies and backcountry enthusiasts.
Lastly, the size of boot I needed was sold out in their shop. The network of C.C.B. shops came to the rescue. The staff was very helpful in calling their other store to find the boot I needed, had the boot delivered to their location within 24 hours, boot fit and heat molded accordingly when I picked the boot up, and I was skiing the boot within 72 hours of the initial interaction.
Very pleased all the way around. Will make this my go-to shop for backcountry gear from this point forward.
We all look for that golden ratio between uphill and downhill skiing performance, and I personally believe that this boot nailed that balance better than any other boot out there. It skis like a traditional alpine boot that's stiff and has a progressive flex - but for the up it has a 55° range of motion and weights sub-1400g. This boot inspires confidence and promotes good ski technique. It also doesn't break the bank for uphill touring so you can get those human-powered-goods lap after lap. I like the traditional four buckle design with a modern flair. The buckle closest to the toe isn't entirely necessary from what I've experienced. So if you want to shave some weight chop off that paperweight. The cuff cam strap is well made but sometimes creeps open if strapped too tight. The material provides a stiff AND progressive flex that alpine skiers will appreciate. Generally, this thing rocks. Get out there and get to Freetouring.
This boot deserves all the hype. It fits SO good out of the box. It crushes the down, is super light, and super easy to use. Love the walk mode and all the buckles. Blizzard really kept me as a customer with this boot fo SHO. Lanyard on the walk mode is also a nice touch, especially when fiddling with gloves on.
So far these boots are a perfect fit out of the box - normally I have to get a bit of work done on my boots, but not these! Super stoked with them! Highly recommend.
Have been out twice in the boots. Great ROM unbuckled on the uphill. Buckled down very stiff and responsive. I am 6’2” and 205s. The walk mode mechanism is easy to engage/disengage. I like the large power strap ( easy on and off ) Soles walk well in the parking lot. No complaints here, looking forward to more vertical in them. Very happy!
