There can only be one king of the mountain.

You're day consists of big drops under the tram, trenching turns on the way back to the groomer, pow laps off the backside, and a dusk touring mission to cap it all off. Your boots better be prepared for much of the same, and the Tecnica Men's Cochise 130 Pro Ski Boot would be an excellent choice. This is Tecnica's cream-of-the-crop, mack daddy, highest-man-on-the-totem pole boot, for touring or big mountain skiing. The Cochise 130 offers a 130 flex, a shell with gobs torsional rigidity, a ski/walk mode that locks into ski mode like a traditional, fully-rigid alpine boot, and the sole blocks are interchangeable. By now you should have some hint as to why this boot rocks a 'Pro' in the title.

Tecnica reinterpreted what an big-mountain, AT boot could be when it created the Cochise line. You'll find heaps of power on tap and all the little details that make the difference when you're touring to a secret stash or hammering laps off the tram. The ski/walk mode is a metal-on-metal affair, the cuff locks completely into the lower shell in ski mode (there's no drifting or sloppiness), and the sole blocks are interchangeable between DIN alpine blocks and Tech/Dynafit compatible blocks. The Cochise offers a medium-to-high instep and a medium-width forefoot fit on the inside. 

Unless you're used to race-stock alpine or plug product, the Cochise 130 should be all you need to get as close as possible to a 'no compromise' AT and big mountain boot. Slide your foot into the custom-fit liner, micro adjust each of the three buckles, wrench down the monstrous power strap, and get cranking into the backcountry or at the resort.

  • Injected Triax shell with a 130 flex and 98mm last width
  • Custom-fit liner with neoprene toebox
  • Three, micro-adjustable buckles with a 55mm top, buckling powerstrap
  • Ski/walk mode with Cuff Mobility System and metal-on-metal connection
  • Interchangeable DIN (alpine, included) and Tech (Dynafit, sold separately) sole blocks

Gotta love the (hitch) hike mode on the Cochise Pro!

one boot quiver!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been waiting for a long time to have a boot that i find acceptable for both uphill and down hill use. In the past i have always had an alpine boot for "downhill" skiing and a touring boot for whenever i am going uphill. The Tecnica Cochise Pro 130 does everything well. It skis like an alpine boot while still being weight conscious, has a good functioning walk mode and the ability to use tech/dynafit style bindings. It is a great one boot quiver.

Love it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After 20+ years of skiing, this is the first pair of boots that I have owned that I can honestly say do not hurt my feet in any way.

Stats: 130 lbs, 5'8", expert and aggressive skier. My Cochise have a custom built footbed from Inkline Foot Science in Salt Lake City and a heat molded Intuition liner.

First off, I use this boot very differently than most probably would. I have skied about 100 days this year, and about half have been in the terrain park. Most people would shudder at the thought of using one of the stiffest boots on the market in the terrain park, but I do it, and I love it (especially compared to the Full Tilt Hot Doggers I used to have). When it comes to bigger jumps (20+ feet) I really appreciate the stiffness. This will NOT be the case for everyone though, and if you ski a lot of park I would recommend something around 110-120, but to each his own.

I also have toured quite extensively in this boot over the past two seasons, and have had no issues. The hike/walk mode is great and still feels strong and secure after two seasons. To be honest, a lot of times I do not use the hike mode, so that goes to say something about the comfort level I have in this boot. The re-changeable soles are great for two reasons:

1. Soles wear out, it's a fact of life, especially when you ski a lot.
2. You can switch between tech soles and alpine soles for different ski setups.

With that being said, the switch between the different soles is not as simple as 1-2-3 and I would recommend doing it the night before, not in the parking lot.

Overall, I really do love the Cochise and with different versions with varying flex's and last's, I think there is a Cochise for everyone.

awesome boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots! The design for the walk mode is metal on metal, so it doesn't wear out over time or effect the down hill performance. The action strap closure system is super tight. Also, out of all the boots with a walk mode and a 130 rated flex that i have tried, these feel the stiffest. The rubber soles are a nice feature as well.

Cons: expensive but I google'd for the lowest price online and paid less.
Pros: Don't have to worry about sizing as much, because Triax shell is very heat moldable and punchable. Can even do it yourself. I normally wear 100mm 27.5, but with heat molding in my kitchen I was able to size down to 98mm 26.5, and now fits like a glove with no hot spots. I followed instructions by blistergearreview or just get any bootfitter. No other Rando boot has 98mm, really makes a difference on quick turns & responsiveness.

Cochise - performance with walk mode

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Was looking for a boot I could use everyday on the resort but would be better for hiking and side country exploring than a normal alpine boot. I am using alpine plates with Fritschi or regular alpine bindings. (note: the current Cochise Pro comes with alpine bindings whereas they used to come with dynafit soles in prior years.) The Cochise 130 Pro is working really well for me. The walk mode is better than other brands I tried such as Lange and Dalbello. I like the 98mm last for a better fit (I have normal width feet.) This boot really delivers on the hard pack with stiff performance. I have even used with SL race skis on groomers and liked them. And, the added perk of the good walk mode makes walking around the resort much better. Overall, very happy with the choice. Make sure and not get confused between the Cochise Pro (alpine sole plates, thicker liner, 98mm last) and Cochise Pro Light (lighter, dynafit sole plates, 100mm last).

Responded on

Cochise Pro 130s have always come with the Alpine DIN soles only. 11/12 and 12/13 Cochise 120 used to come with Tech soles standard. Now the only boot that come with the tech soles is the Cochise Pro Light.

The Tech soles work on all the Cochise boots from 130 down to 90.

Well-balanced boot for tougher skier

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this boot all season last year in Utah and Havenly and then some more in Chile. Lighter liner and lighter shell for going uphill (or long walks) without sacrificing the tight fit for downhill: 130 and 98mm last - no other boot has this combination.

I recommend this boot to all my racing friends and AT friends alike, esp mogul lovers. For downhill-only skiers, walking around and up ramps is much easier, faster with the walk switch.

I tour with alpine soles only = More enjoyable and safer downhill - that's #1 reason to ski. Tech soles really sacrifice the downhill safety and performance. But it's nice to have the tech option on these boots, when I get too old and too weak :) for the alpine.

I've also used these boots on my light mogul skiis. Moguls is where these boots have no competition as well. Light fast downhill in tight turns anywhere on the mountain. Noe toe bang on jumps, b/c of the smarter liner. I also love the quick release of the power strap for lots of jumping in park.

Got a great deal using google's product search, these boots are well built and will last for decades, worth every penny in greater enjoyment. I wouldn't settle for 120 or wider last and always think that I'm not getting the best. I bought online to save money, then molded at a bootfitter for a perfect fit. These boots are easy to punch, b/c they have Triax shell - so any bootfitter can do a good job.

What's the real difference between this and the Pro Light--is it just a different liner? Looks like the same boot material?

Best Answer Responded on

The Pro Light has a couple differences. For example, the Pro Light has a smaller, 45 mm, power strap and a slightly larger last at 100 mm. The main difference though is the Pro Light has a 120 flex, as opposed to the 130 flex of the Pro.

Responded on

130 pro is 98mm and comes with the power buckle, more of a traditional ski boot liner and has a little more rubber in the arch of the boot.

Pro light last is 100mm, has no power buckle, and has a much lighter liner that needs to be heat molded.

Weight difference is around 600g per boot.
