For those advanced, expert or professional skiers looking for a traditional 4 buckle, all mountain boot, the Mach1 120 is the perfect solution for someone that doesn’t want to compromise fit and performance but is looking for a slightly softer, more comfortable flex. Designed off the last and stance of the world cup boots for high performance, the Mach1 relaxes the fit to a 100mm for those needing a higher volume fit and Quick Instep makes getting in and out of them a cinch. The taller cuff combines with a perfectly sculpted lower with an incredibly well defined heel pocket, a pre-punched navicular area over a sveltely contoured medial wall, which flows elegantly into an asymmetrical, elongated toe box for all day comfort and warmth. The C.A.S. liner gives unmatched fit out of the box, and the unique outer material allows for numerous customization options, and pairs perfectly with the shell to give the skier unrivaled snow feel and precision. A solid 120 flex will give lighter experts to advanced skiers alike plenty of power and input for any terrain you need to conquer, but the slightly more forgiving flex will be a touch more user friendly for slightly lighter skiers or colder climates. The interchangeable soles with TecniGrip for traction are easily replaced, or you can put a solid, pre-canted sole on instead (sold separately) for any alignment issues you may have. The unmatched out-of-the-box fit combined with legendary Tecnica performance makes this boot an all day performer that should be on your short list for 2014.
