Description

A boot that has no problem going both ways.

The Tecnica Women's Viva Crossfire Boot has a hard time staying in one place for too long. After all the powder has been tracked up, it prefers to head out the resort gates for some pow sessions. This women-specific boot offers you touring capability without sacrificing downhill performance so you don't look like a wanker in the backcountry.
  • A cuff mobility system allows you to easily switch from ski mode to hike mode and back to ski mode
  • Interchangeable soles allow you to switch from DIN to a tech-compatible sole
  • Low-volume performance shell is easy to get on and off
  • A 100 flex for performance
  • A 45mm hook-and-loop powerstrap helps you avoid the dreaded shinbang
  • A hinged instep catch offers you better pressure distribution
  • A shock absorbing boot board helps absorb vibrations when you send it
  • A hook-and-loop spoiler can be adjusted to your preference or removed altogether

I've got the tiniest ankles and most women's...

I've got the tiniest ankles and most women's boots are too big. How do these do? Will some padding and fitting work OK, or do they run quite wide?

First, I come from a similar background and also have a narrow ankle. Second, you need to realize that no boot will fit like a glove out of the box especially one like this that is meant to be used touring & also in bounds. Whats great about Tecnica is that they make a variety of volume shell sizes to accommodate a broad spectrum of athlete needs. Bad news is that because boots are designed with this in mind so are the liners. I always end up taking my boot in after a few times out to get tweaked at a local shop. Third, not knowing much more than you have a narrow ankle I can't really tell you weather or not this is the perfect boot for you. But I can boast about how awesome it is:

This shell in particular is a low volume shell which means it will be more snug around the toe box (bad for wide feet). The liner is a little better than some of the others out there because it can be heat moldable. It has a solid 100 flex which will make you happy when slaying pow or ripping a groomer or two. Also It has replaceable soles, so if you want to tour with these, it can be done. The best part about these interchangeable soles is that these boots are so easy to convert back and forth. This boot can be your all in one boot, no more buying specific touring boots or alpine boots!

Also with all of this said - there is no harm in buying a boot & getting it tuned up at your trusted boot fitter. The most important decisions about buying a boot that compliments your performance ability & makes your feet happy. I have always been a fan of Tecnica's performance and durability.

Thanks so much for all the info - that really helps! I ski very hard but still need a good hiking boot and it's difficult to find one that'll do what I need with my skinny foot.

Cochise Sister

Women's version of the popular Cochise boot from Tecnica. 100 flex, 100mm last and Tecnicas revolutionary Cuff Mobility system. This system is what seperates Tecnica from the other alpine brands attempting to make walk mode boots. The walk mode is just as good as any of the AT brands yet when you lock the cuff into ski mode you have a high performance alpine boot that you could ski every day in bounds and not sacrifice any performance. Tecnica brings you what people have been asking for, a high performance ski boot with a great walk mode. Women's specific liner on this boot with padding designed for a women's foot.

Cuff Mobility system

This is what seperates the Freemountain boots from Tecnica from all the other alpine companies attempting to make alpine boots with walk mode
