Tecnica Cochise 130 Dyn Alpine Touring Boot

2 items left

The all new Tecnica Cochise 130 AT boot is hotter than Phoenix on July 4.  In the case you've never been to Phoenix, AZ on July 4th, you'll have to take our word for it that this boot is hot. A lot has changed in ski boot technology since the last time Tecnica revamped the Cochise.  Every skier these days seems to own at least 1 hybrid binding with tech inserts, and the Cochise 130 remains the industry standard in being a 50/50 boot.  It's the Queen Elizabeth II of longevity and stability as skiers' #1 choice to do everything in 1 boot.  

The Cochise 130 is the stiffest boot in its family, sporting a classic four buckle design and featuring two types of plastic in the boot lower and the cuff.  By using Polypropylene (a super temperate stable plastic) in the cuff, the Cochise flexes familiarly in a variety of temps- a subtle yet important design feature.  Sidenote: speaking of flex, the hot orange color of this boot is going to draw attention whether you like it or not!  Okay back to the tech... Using asymmetric plastic thickness in the cuff means that power transfer to the inside edges is improved from past iterations.  Although the classic design of four buckle boots remain an industry standard, Tecnica realized that getting into and out of boots can be tough, so with "Quick Instep" construction, it's easier to separate the lower shell and get your feet in.  It's a simple but important feature that increases usability without sacrificing power.

The C.A.S (Custom Adaptive Shape) Liner is a big selling point on comfort and power.  This is a major step up in comfort and customizability from the Zero G liner, and while heavier, the pros outweigh the cons here.  Tecnica didn't forget people are ski touring in this liner though, as it still contains a flexible area on the achilles- a subtle detail that proves this design is top of the line.

The last big update is the walk mode mechanism, dubbed "T-Ride".  Previously an internal mechanism, Tecnica made the jump to a more simple and powerful design to provide usability on the uphill and reliable power transfer when skiing down.  When we say reliable, we mean it- you can actually "lock" the T-Ride into ski mode, preventing play and pre-release which plagues a substantial amount of 130 flex freeride tour boots.  This is a game-changing feature that is sure to make waves in other future boot considerations.

Is renting right for you?

Rentals are a great way to lower the cost for your first time trying the sport and narrowing down what you are looking for. We rent both super light fitness setups for resort uphilling as well as all mountain skis better for backcountry and soft snow.

There are a few limitations of renting. Most importantly the demands on your feet for walking uphill in a hard plastic require a level of boot fitting and customization that is impossible to get in rental boot. This could set you up for some discomfort. There are too many models of skis out there to try them all, so demoing to buy has become impossible. In the end, once you are hooked for the sport, working with our backcountry experts will be the most efficient and least expensive way to get dialed in the perfect setup for you.

Tecnica Cochise 130 Dyn AT Boot

Great so far. Perform very well on the downhill and the walk mode gives plenty of ankle mobility for touring.
