Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought a L/XL. Wear a 7 1/2 fitted hat, 7 5/8 is a little big

My head is pretty big front to back versus side to side and these fit great. I've been in POC helmets for the last few years and had a really hard time dialing in the fit. This helmet fits absolutely perfect. However I am about maxed out on the adjustment for it.

Wouldn't mind a few more vents but I guess that compromises their protection story a bit.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: xl

Ordered these in an Xl and they fit great. I've had Trew bibs for the last few years and those were much baggier and to be honest it looked like I was wearing a diaper. There was no shape.

If you have a gut these might be a little small but if you're just a bigger athletic dude these will it great. Minimalist design with a sleek comfortable fit.

34" inseam and length was perfect

Ordered this in an Xl and am super psyched on the fit. I believe tehe Supernaut is slimmest cut of the Sweet fits but holy cow does it fit well. I'm 6'2" 210. I've been wearing Trew and Patagonia for the last few years and their fits for me a little boxier than the Sweet. Even in their more minimalist jackets. If you're a bigger guy but not fat these fit really well.

One of the lightest skis in the world for it's waste width the ZeroG 85 will blow you away with it's performance at such a low weight. A typical ski in this weight class is designed to excel at going up. However the ride on the way down can be a gripping, exhausting, and sometimes frightening experience. Not with the ZeroG 85. Full sidewalls, wood core, and tip to tail Carbon Fiber construction give these skis a confidence inspiring level of performance that has never been felt in this weight category. These will save you weight on the way up but also save you energy on the way down by letting you relax and enjoy the conditions instead of bracing yourself for what your skis might do next. And the best part is they're considerably less money than anything similar.

Weather you're bagging peaks or just skinning up your local resort in the AM before work the ZeroG 85 is an awesome ultra lightweight ski that will leave a smile on your face when your mission is complete.

CAS Shell

No the dimples on the shell aren't for aerodynamics. They are tecnica's CAS shell technology. The dimples are in the key problem fit areas of the shell. They act as a rodemap for your bootfitter to accurately and effectively fine tune the fit for your foot. The dimples reduce the surface tension of the plastic allowing your bootfitter to quickly heat and punch the plastic. The plastic cools faster than the punch will not shrink back. Less time at the bootfitter means more time on the hill in more comfortable boots

CAS Liner

The C.A.S. liner works differently than traditional ski boot liners. Instead of a liner filled with EVA padding that has to push against your foot to hold it in place Tecnica has used a firm material called micro cell that is premolded at the factory to match the exact anatomy of the foot. This creates a foam like fit where the heal and ankle is cradled all over and locked in place but without pressure of discomfort. One of the biggest benefits to this material is that it does not break down. The heal and ankle hold will last for the life of the ski boot unlike traditional liners that break down over time. To this liner can is the most customizable liner on the market. It can be ground, punched, and easily glued to. And the best part is it's a stock liner. Gone are the days of paying $700 for a boot and $200 additional for a custom liner.

More Comfortable More Customizable
5 5

The revolutionary Mach 1 from Tecnica has evolved. Now available in two separate volumes. 100mm MV and 98mm LV. These are two distinctly different molds, that differ in not only forefoot measurement but total overall volume. The 100mm MV is 7% more overall volume than the LV. Both boots look and perform exactly the same they just differ in fit. These are most anatomical lasts that Tecnica has ever created results in a better overall fit with better performance and lower overall weight. The all new Mach1 boots also feature the C.A.S. (Custom Adaptive Shape) fit system that is the most comprehensive fit system on the market. It is made up of the boot board, liner, and shell and allows the Mach1 boots to be easily and effectively customized to any foot shape.

Improved fit and performance for 15/16
5 5

Even though the boot looks the same as the 14/15 version it gets a new updated liner. The 15/16 model gets the all new C.A.S. liner. This liner debuted in the Mach boots last year and has been modified to fit the Cochise boots for 15/16. It features a material called Micro Cell on the outside of the liner. This is a firm material that is premolded at the factory to match the exact anatomy of the foot. Instead of a bunch of soft padding having to push against your foot to hold it in place the micro cell acts like a foam mold of your foot cradling the heal and ankle for a tighter hold. One of the best parts of this material is it is very firm and will not break down over time. Once you're past that initial break in period that is how the heal and ankle will fit for the life of the boot. This is especially important in touring boots when the foot moves around a lot more. Liners tend to pack out easier. Another added benefit is the CAS microcell material can be ground and punched. It's the most customizable liner on the market and comes stock in the Cochise 120, 130 and Pro W as well as all the Mach1 boots from Tecnica. There's no need to pay $700 for a boot then another $200 for an aftermarket liner. The picture is of the mens liner but the womens is exactly the same. The microcell material is white in the womens liner.

A couple of tweaks make the 2016 Cochise even more versatile in more snow conditions than the previous design. The vertical sidewall, titanal, sandwich contruction that is the heart and soul of the Cochise remains however the award winning flipcore design has been modernized. Carbon Flipcore incorporates sheets of Carbon Fiber into the rockered sections of the tip and tail. This reinforces the rocker profile and calms the ski resulting in more control at speed and quicker initiation at lower edge angles. The slightly tapered, tip and tail design reduces swingweight, helps the tips plane better in softer snow and the tails now release even easier in steep chalky conditions. The reference ski for so many big mountain skiers has simply evolved. A modern version of a icon ski.
