Tecnica Cochise 90 Ski Boots - Men's - 2012/2013


This product is no longer available.


  • Ski/hike switch frees upper cuff to work with your stride and makes it easy to hike for your turns
  • A steel and aluminum, metal-pin-to-metal plate connection locks the upper cuff to the lower shell when you're ready to ski and allows you to really flex into your skis
  • Lightweight, mono-injected polymer shell is designed to make it easy going uphill, and it provides the responsive power you need on the way back down
  • Soft plastic over instep makes it easy to get your feet in the boots
  • Liners offer superior heel hold, complete foot envelopment and rubberized, shock-absorbent materials in feet
  • Custom-formable liners can be heated in a specialty ski shop to achieve a personalized fit
  • Neoprene toe boxes increase warmth in feet and absorb vibrations
  • Catches have a whopping 44mm range—22mm forward and 22mm back
  • Instep catch is hinged, allowing excellent pressure distribution; plus, it pivots away from the shell, letting the shell spread for easy entry
  • 40mm hook-and-loop power strap provides effective cuff closure and efficient energy transmission as the skier works the boot forward
  • Cuff alignment matches the angle of the cuff with the shape of the lower leg, increasing comfort and performance
  • Very sticky arches and soles are designed for hiking in snow
  • Shock-absorbent heels smooth descents and soften landings
  • With a flex index of 90, Tecnica Cochise 90 ski boots provide the power transfer preferred by intermediate skiers
