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!

I'm super pleased with this boot. I bought the boot and the following weekend proceeded to but 18 miles and over 7k worth of vert on it to see how it performed. Needless to say by the end of the weekend in the wrong boots my feed would be barking at me. But in these, they were ready to keep on trucking. Not to mention the power delivery the boots provided that had me skiing like a bat out of hell. The boots rock.
Great! No complaints!
light on the uphill and high-performance downhill!
Love em. Would wear them as my everyday boot if they could work with my Irallys.
I must admit, I’m new to Touring but wanted the option to explore various venues of combined ski/climbing. A few yrs ago I discovered Technica Ten.2 HV boots. Awesome fit for high arch and wide foot albeit heavy. I read a review on the Tech Zero G and approached Cripple Creek. Alex helped me when selecting my new boots. After trying on 4 versions of AT boots I selected the Zero Gs. After skiing several days I made an appointment w/ JP. After tweaking (punching) my left boot, they’re perfect. I highly recommend CCB (Avon). Thanks guys. You really helped make our vacay a resounding success. The weight savings of my new boots, skis and Duke PTs is astounding.
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.
