Mach1 LV 130 Ski Boot
The Tecnica Mach1 130 LV Men's Ski Boot is a hard-charging, take-no-prisoners, race-bred freeride boot that's not particularly interested in slowing down, taking it easy, or just simply cruising. The burly 130 flex is perfect for advanced and aggressive skiers, or those with a little more weight behind their turns, while the 98mm last is ideal for lower-volume feet (or for skiers who are looking for the ultimate performance fit.) The sculpted polyether shell provides a snugly confident fit around the foot, while the stiff polyester cuff produces the power to conquer big lines and big drops at high speed without worrying about feeling loose, soft, or wobbly in your boots.
Tecnica designed the Custom Adaptive Shape (C.A.S.) UltraFit Pro Race liner to match the contours of the shell, giving you a seriously precise and powerful out-of-the-box fit that won't pack out after half a season like traditional liners tend to do. Meanwhile, the LV uses a thinner and more responsive liner than the classic Mach1 for increased sensitivity. The C.A.S. liner is also designed to be heat molded for a fine-tuned fit, giving you the ability to rip in comfort from first chair to last call. A fat 45mm power strap lets you cinch everything down for snug and powerful feel, and the Mach1's subtle canting and flex adjustments give you the ability to dial your stance. When the TechniGrip soles wear out, you can replace them for more grip and surer binding release and retention, or you can swap them out for a full-length pre-canted sole to address any alignment problems you're having. If you like to push your skiing and need a boot that can keep up, the Mach1 130 LV is a pretty damn good bet.

Great change from apline touring boots
These are worlds different than my touring boots, which I have used solely for a few years. They packed in well, and deliver great power to the skis . As always I recommend getting them fitted in the Backcountry store in SLC before just blindly buying online though
