Make the mountains your playground.
Everyone and their mom seems to be heading into the backcountry these days, and you sure as shootin' don't want to be left out of the conversation when everyone's talking about how sick it was out there. Fortunately, with the Tecnica Cochise 110 Ski Boot, accessing the goods is easier than ever, and with awesome downhill performance and a 110 flex, you can rip up the resort, too.
On the way up, the Cochise is ready to charge. The Cuff Mobility System switches from ski to hike mode with the flip of a switch, unhinging the cuff from the lower boot to provide a wide range of motion while keeping your ankle secure with a Power Lock upper buckle and power strap. Interchangeable soles are also available with the Cochise, so you can ride your alpine setup or opt to get super tech and switch to a fully-rubberized AT system with no need for new boots. If you're scrambling up some exposed rocks on a ridge or skating down an icy parking lot, the rubberized heel and underfoot Arch Grip pad will keep you from ending up on your butt or in pieces at the bottom of a rocky slope.
Once you reach the top, switch back into ski mode, adjust the rear spoiler to suit your hard-charging stance, tighten up your buckles, and crush your line. You can enter sketchy zones with confidence, knowing that you've used the dual rivets to fine-tune your cuff alignment and that the light Triax plastic will flex consistently no matter the temperature, or punch airs with impunity, secure in the knowledge that the heel shock absorber will help cushion any firm landings and the rear iRebound metal insert will provide stability. Once you're back to the lodge or car, taking your boots off is easy, thanks to the Quick Instep soft plastic insert and hinged buckle catch that allow the shell to open wide and let your foot slide out of the shell.

Would this boot be noticeably softer than the cochise 120?
No they're barely softer. Hard to even notice the difference.
C.brown or whoever, do Technica boots have rivets in the rear spoiler to make the boots softer if needed? If they do that might help varian72 just go for the 120 and not second guess himself. If you are a smaller guy and more intermediate level the 110 may work just fine and save the extra cash. But if you are charging harder and advanced expert level I would go 120.
Bang for Your Buck!
The Cochise 110 might be one of the best bangs for you buck on the market right now. It's stiffer than most other companies "130 flex" AT boots and it's only $549. Swappable AT Tech compatible soles are available for purchase for this boot. A great ripping boot that you can use A Dynafit binding with for only $549 plus the cost of the tech soles. Doesn't get much better than that.
