Description

Big comfort and gigantic performance for large feet.

Some of us are born with big heads, some with huge ears, and others of us have giant, yeti-sized feet that just don't fit into ski boots. If you fall into the latter category, Tecnica feels your pain and has a boot just for you, my Sasquatch-pawed friend: the 106mm-lasted Ten.2 H.V.L., designed for those who are tired of suffering the pain of boot-inflicted foot-binding. The H.V.L (High Volume) last, which checks in at a burly 120 flex, is a full 6mm wider than Tecnica's standard men's last, which may not sound like a lot, but it's a big difference when you consider that the variation between their top-end race and standard all-mountain lasts is only 2mm. Quick Instep, a soft plastic panel molded to the instep of boot, allows the tongue to open fully when pulling the H.V.L on and off, eliminating the hellacious struggle that can leave you exhausted and wanting to go home first thing in the morning, and a pull strap on the tongue gives you all the leverage you need to make entry and exit a breeze.
 
The upper buckles on the H.V.L feature 3-position adjustment, offering 44mm of fit customization that will conform to any leg shape, and work in cooperation with the adjustable dual-rivet cuff alignment, allowing you to fine-tune the fit to suit your preferred stance. There's an adjustable rear spoiler, too, that can help you stay forward or ride more upright, and can even be entirely removed to make room for extra-wide calves. If all this doesn't sound comfortable enough, Tecnica threw in a fur lining, just because they could. So suffer discomfort no more, you Godzilla-hoofed hero—enjoy your next day on the mountain like you never thought you could.

feels great, no control, flawed buckle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these boots very excited about being comfortable in a ski boot. The first pair was sized to big and I had not control from the start. Be careful what you wish for. They still need to hold your foot tight enough to give you control of the ski. These did not. Once in a smaller size, control was better but not what was expected from a $500 -600 boot. My 15 yo Tecnicas gave better control.
Once fitted decent and on the slopes, on the second day one of the buckles bent so bad that it would no longer function which cost me an 2 hour drive to the shop where they fixed it. Then after a couple more days skiing another buckle is showing signs of failure. I have had to be extra careful to make sure I close it perfectly or it binds up and wants to bend. Its a horrible design with sharp edges the not only catch on the other parts of the buckle but I could see where it actually cut into part of the hinge. Thinking that's a safety issue!!
Overall I have had a terrible time with these boots and will be looking for something else to wear this winter.
I was hoping to get many fun, comfortable years out of these boots but not if I have to go the shop every other time I ski to get the buckles replaced.

Updated review...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Updated from previous review:
I've gone from 5 stars to 3 on this boot. 2nd buckle down (the important one) on both boots blew out. I've got 30-40 days in these boots and the liners have really packed in...so now I feel like I am swimming. Probably going to need a custom liner. Shell is good...probably the best for my foot...but not happy with build quality of buckle & liner. Not sure what I expected from a stock liner. Overall still pretty happy w/ the boot, but I spent $550 on the boots and will probably have to spend another $200 on a liner. Thankfully the ski shop replaced the 2 buckles no charge.

Not a Toy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just because you have wide feet doesn't mean you should have to ski in a toy with 2 buckles and a soft mushy flex. At 106mm in the forefoot these are some of the widest boots on the market but they're designed to be high performance boots not buckets. They have great anatomical shape with great heal and ankle hold and a true 120 flex.
