A narrow, stiff, and powerful boot for crashing gates or carving rails into corduroy.

Squeeze into the stiff, race-ready Tecnica Inferno 130 Ski Boot without injuring your foot before you take on a fast and grippy slalom course. With an easy-on, easy-off Quick Instep System, you can slide your foot into the narrow World Cup Race last without ripping a tendon. The new last design positions your foot in the fastest and most powerful position possible while still obeying FIS equipment regulations.

  • The removable Power Chassis, made from carbon steel, adds a rigid skeleton to the bottom sole to enhance the power transfer from boot to binding
  • Quick Instep System lets you slide your foot into the 98mm-wide boot without pain, thanks to the softer piece of plastic co-molded to the inner instep
  • Thermo-moldable Inferno Race liner features an adjustable, removable rear spoiler and retains heat for anchoring your heel, keeping your foot warm, and providing excellent energy transference
  • Flex Adjustment allows fine-tuning by removing one or both rivets on the rear spine to soften the boot’s overall flex
  • Dual Cuff Alignment screws tighten on the inner and outer ankle to fit your individual foot size for maximum comfort and power
  • Carbon steel buckles provide strength and glove-friendly tweaking while trimming down weight
  • The 45mm Power Lock hook-and-loop strap functions as a fifth buckle and won’t open when you tag it with a gate
  • Neoprene toe box ensures your toes stay dry as you smoke the race course

1 gripe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I failed to mention my one gripe with this boot. After being in it so much I developed a weird lump on the back/outside of my right heel. I'm sure it is just the shape of that foot since my left foot was fine, but the lump was tender and didn't go away for about 2 months after the snow was gone.

They are also a beast to get off after a long day. I found that the shell pinches/scrapes the top of my foot as I pull them off no matter how I try. They perform so well on the mountain tho that it definitely isn't a deal breaker for me.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I skied over 60 days in these boots and love them. Super stiff, yet they have a nice smooth flex. Unlike my Lange boots that I had before these, they actually do flex for me, while maintaining the power and stability of the 130 flex.

Great fit

If you have a narrow heel, wide forefoot, this is the boot for you.
First boot I have found in a long time that "fits" right out of the box.
Adjustable flex and very responsive, solid boot for a hard skier.

narrow foot dream boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

no heel? high instep? super narrow foot?

this is the boot for skinny calves and feet.

ultra-responsive, great power transmission. wish there was a touring/hiking sole option.

Have foam added to the tongue if you can.

I did a 3 day backcountry trip in these boots in the Tetons last January. They are heavy, and not built for touring in any way, but I definitely survived the trip and still occasionally tour in them.

These have the perfect amount of flex and comfort width wise. However, they were not right for my feet. I had a problem with the low shelf at the front of the boot. It put too much pressure on the top of my toes.
I was very close to loving these.

Get these if you have low to medium arch feet and are used to race style boots. High arched people like myself can't fit them - never mind with custom insoles.

These also fit almost identical to the Dalbello Scorpion SR 130's.

Unbelievably comfortable low-volume fit

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I demoed these boots in Austria. It was the first time I have used a "racing" boot, and I was incredibly impressed because they were the most comfortable boots that I have worn. I don't have a particularly narrow foot, but definitely a "low-volume" foot, and this fit was perfect for me. Then again, everyones feet are different, so what fits me may not work for others. My only complaint is that the 130 flex is too much for my 5'7" 145 lbs and the way I tend to balance which is oftentimes in the back seat. It was tough to get over the front of my boots. Thats why the boots I actually bought for the next season are the Inferno Blaze 110s. Its basically the same low-volume boot but with a bit of a relaxed flex. Otherwise, can't say enough about these if you're looking for a high-performance snug fit to give you loads of control.

Responded on

they definitely put you in a very forward and aggressive stance. If you aren't comfortable having your knees bent and pressure on your shins all day while you blast down the hill at mach schnell, these are not your boots.

Lots of power.

I have been skiing these boots for 2 seasons now, and theyre great. They have a really nice ankle and heel pocket that keeps you exactly where you want to be. Stiff enough to give your skiing a boost, but not so stiff to beat up your shins. Nice work Tecnica.

Responded on

I agree. the one thing that they don't do is absorb impact. If you ever want to land on hard snow with more than a few feet of air and not feel like your feet are going to explode, get some sort of insole.
If what you want is your foot to stay put and not move a millimeter inside your boots, these are perfect.

I own a pair of Tecnica Diablo Magma that...

I own a pair of Tecnica Diablo Magma that are about 4-5 years old now. Size 270/US 9. I have owned many pairs of Technica because of the fit - narrow heel, roomier toe box. Would the US 9.5 meet my requirements in this boot?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey tom reed,

Thanks for the question. Since the Tecnica Diablo Magma Ski Boot has a last width of 100mm, the Tecnica Inferno 130 Ski Boot - Men's will be slightly narrower at a 98mm width. Will the 9.5 size work for you? That would depend on how well you fit into the previous boot length wise as the the shell will be a very similar size, but the liner will be slightly thinner. If you were a bit tight in the previous Tecnica boots, then you should be fine fit wise in this boot. If not, then you will most likely have a fair amount of fore-aft foot movement after the boot breaks in along with some heel lift with a 9.5.

Also, keep in mind that this boot is a 130 flex rating. To step up from a 115 flex to a 130 flex is a pretty big step unless you are more than a decently strong skier in both technique and fitness with hard snow conditions dominating your skiing time. If you do not fit any of the above for the flex rating, I would suggest to stay around 110 to 120.

I hope this answer helps you to find the right boot.

The Demon 130 might be a better fit for you than the Inferno 130. The Demon 130 is essentially the updated Diablo. Both have a 100mm last. The Inferno is a 98mm and is much lower volume in the fore foot. You should be able to handle a 130 flex if you liked the Magma's flex. It was rated at 120 which is more comparable to a 130 in today's stiffnes rating.

I just took back my Lange RX 130's (see the product page review for why) and am now looking at these. Anyone know what the 11.5 compares to in MM scale (i.e 29.5)? I'm between a 29.5-30.5 in Lange.

Responded on

According to Technica, 11.5 lines up directly with a 29.5.

Responded on

Brandon, The Lange RX130 LV and the Inferno 130 should fit about the same lengthwise in the boot. I ski in the 130 and have tried the Lange on and I wouldn't need to change sizes in either. The Tecnica is a much lower volume fit in the forefoot of the boot. They are also a ton easier to get on and off than the Lange. People complained about the original Inferno from 2010/2011 130 being too soft so for 2011/2012 they upped stiffness of the plastic and made it stiffer. Most say it's now stiffer than the RX/RS 130. If you barely buckle the front buckle on the Infernos they tend to leak as well. If you buckle that buckle tight it shouldn't be a problem. There is an easy fix to this problem by putting a small strip of silicon under the overlap or just buckling that front buckle a little tighter. BSL on the 29.5 Tecnica Inferno is 335. Don't always get caught up in BSL though as that is an outside measurement of the boot and not totally relevant to the internal fit.
If you want a low volume boot that is stiff and is not temperature sensitive at all check out the Bodacious.

I wear a size 12 shoe and the 29.5 fits perfectly for me.

high performance!

These are the best performing boots I've ever worn, I have been loving them this year. They were made on a smaller last than the Tecnica Agents, so definitely try them on as they fit quite a bit smaller than the Agents of the same size. But once you get the right fit--watch out! This is a boot you can really put some power into and it responds amazingly.

Good Boot, Nice race performance, needed fitting

I have to say that these are a really great boot. I initial tried em out and they were a bit stiff. But take out the plugs in the back and you can range the stiffness from soft med and hard. These in addition to a custom footbed completely changed my skiing. I a good way.
Only complaint is that they did need grinding and multiple trips to the fitter. But when you're looking for that perfect fit then that's a necessity.

Unbelievable Fit for a 98mm boot

I've been in my Tecnica Race Pro 130s for the last two years and it was finally time to upgrade. I've got a fairly narrow foot with some random nobs from years of skiing so I've always had to do quite a bit of boot work to get my boots set for the season. I was amazed when I slipped these bad boys on how well they fit right out of the box. They have that great snug fit that you would expect from a 98mm boot but it seems like the liner and overall lasting of the boot has improved dramatically over my old Tecnicas. I was close to pulling the trigger on a pair of Salmon Falcons but I've got a slightly higher instep and the Falcon was really tough to get into and pretty shallow in that area. These new Infernos have a lot more room over the instep and were so much easier to get in and out of with that Quick Instep piece. I've never had a narrow boot slide on this easily. Can't wait to actually get these on the hill!

Responded on

the room in the instep is how 98mm last tecnicas differ from other narrow boots, especially high end salomon boots, as you mentioned the Falcon was too small. tecnicas have a higher volume around the instep all across the board.
