    Tecnica's known for its ability to build burly resort-crushing boots, and it's officially bringing that expertise to the backcountry. The Zero G Guide Pro Alpine Touring Boot is Tecnica's newest backcountry offering and is built with all the high-end tech to deliver a precise and comfortable fit, big-line-crushing stiffness, and solid tourability for those bigger days in the backcountry.

    First of all, the Zero G Guide Pro sits at the top of Tecnica's Zero G line and weighs a full four ounces (115 grams) less than the Zero G Guide. Weighing right around three and a half pounds per pair in a 26.5, this boot is by no means an ultralight boot, but it is light enough to tackle long tours and steep skintracks, without compromising an ounce of power on the descent—besides, you did hike all that way to actually ski, right? The Zero G houses a burly 130 flex that will inspire confidence in and out of the resort and Dynafit-certified tech inserts that will fit your touring setup. Skiers looking for a boot that will do it all will also appreciate the interchangeable sole system that will fit standard alpine bindings with the purchase of additional soles. Out of the box, the Zero G comes equipped with Skywalk rubber soles that grip everything from wind-blown ridge lines to icy resort parking lots.

    Where the Zero G Guide Pro really stands out, though, is with its C.A.S. shell. The shell is pre-shaped to fit most feet well out of the box, but also features a dimple structure that makes punching and shaping the shell easier on bootfitters, so you get a better fit with a little help from the experts. The Power Light Design consists of a bi-injected frame that is 30% stiffer and 2.5 times stiffer than traditional boot material, which translates to less weight on the uphill and more power on the descent. 44 degrees of cuff rotation allow for easy skinning, and the metal-on-metal connection locks the cuff into ski mode. The minimalist buckles save weight, but also feature an innovative design that keeps the buckles elevated away from the shell to eliminate catching when you're taking the boot on and off. The Palau liner is heat-moldable, and the the Aqua Stop Protection shell structure ensures you don't end your tour with a pair of wet socks.

    • A backcountry boot with big-line-devouring stiffness
    • Stiff 130 flex ideal for aggressive skiers
    • Medium volume touring last balances comfort with performance
    • Dimpled shell is anatomically shaped and easy to customize

    Tecnica for the Win!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I couldn't be happier with the performance of this boot. This is my 4th touring boot I've owned & its easily the best- I intend on wearing this one for as many seasons as I can. Other touring boots usually have a super wimpy flex index, walk modes that don't offer enough forward movement, & some pretty ugly cosmetics. But with this boot, the 130 flex feels like a 130 alpine boot, it offers so much cuff rotation you rarely need to put your heel raisers up, the bright yellow is sexy as hell, its extremely lightweight & is completed with rugged Skywalk rubber soles that grip nicely on wet, icy rocks which cover our mountains up here in New England.

    Best Touring Boot Ever!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    First lightweight touring boot I’ve found that skis almost like a true alpine boot. Performed in all conditions, and on several runs I entirely forgot that I was skiing in a touring boot, which has never happened before. Lightweight High Performance with 4 buckles, 130 flex and replaceable rubber soles.

    Close, but not quite what I wanted

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I've been skiing the Tecnica Cochise Pro Light for several years both resort and backcountry. Swapped soles for a while and then bought a second pair to dedicate to backcountry. Biggest complaint with the Pro Light is no front end with a tongue liner so (for me) must be skied with a Power Wrap style liner to stiffen things up. Fine for resort skiing, but doesn't skin so well.

    Enter the Zero G Guide Pro, and much better front end - I could jettison the powerstrap completely even with a tongue liner. Soles are also much improved. But the big drawback for me is I can't get the two cuff buckles to cinch down as needed - particularly the lower cuff buckle. The two pieces of the overlap bind, and I cannot get the cuff to wrap my ankle resulting in excess cuff lag. Never had that problem in any other overlap style boot.

    Wanted to love it but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    These boots are pretty impressive considering it is a traditional 4 buckle overlap boot that weighs the same or less than a lot of 2 or 3 buckle boots. I found the fit to be pretty close to my MTN labs except the last was a bit wider the the toe box was a bit boxier (which I appreciated). The flex was smooth and progressive on my floor at home. I can't comment on stiffness because I suspect these stiffen up considerably in the cold on the mountain.

    The reason why I ended up returning these was the walk mode. Numbers wise the walk mode is a pretty solid 44 degrees. However, the lower shell in the back of the boot (where your achilles is) is far too high. When taking a step and flexing the boot rearward my achilles would impact the lower shell which was quite uncomfortable even just walking around the house. If you are touring in a place like the wasatch with short and steep skin tracks I honestly do not think this would be a problem. However, I felt this boot would be too uncomfortable for me on flat approaches or ridge hikes so ended up returning them.

    It is a bit of a bummer that this issue wasn't noticed/addressed by tecnica because these boots are premo besides that one issue.

    No Zero Given Here

      The Zero G is a four-buckle touring boot with a "130" flex. Initially, the 130 flex felt like a 115-120, but the Power Light Design—allowing the overlap boot to weigh 1,545 grams—combined with the Light Grid Triax inner cuff material packed some beef. In tour mode, the cuff disengaged via a metal-on-metal connection with 44 degrees of rearward motion—which includes a spring eliminating slop. It was lighter and more powerful than previous versions of the Cochise, with power transition and pop. Overall these boots were super comfortable on the ascent and responsive on the descent.

      When buying boots it doesn't matter how well they perform if they dont fit your foot. I found these boots fit my foot the best of any AT boot so ultimately that is why I went with the Zero G. Shoot me an email if you have any questions, plaw@backcountry.com. If your thinking about this boot or any other touring boot shoot me an email or give me a call. I would love to help you put together a ski package that makes sense. I've been able to demo a lot of the various ski gear we have on the site and love to talk shop! 801-204-4661

      Are you looking to Carpe the Diem in the BC? Look no further! These boots are ready to get drowned out in pow and huck every Meat on the mountain. Power and control is the theme of this boot. 4 buckle construction, a generous walk mode and light but powerful plastic is what make this boot so sought after. I have skied this boot on and off resort. Most recently in a 15 inch storm at Powder Mountain Utah where the boot performed flawlessly. If you have further questions or are looking to buy a pair please reach out. I will tailor your experience to your needs and set you up with exactly what you need!

      Hi Patrick!

      Recently purchased these boots and the ski shop where I bought them said I could find DIN soles and screw them in so that I could ski these boots with my alpine setup. Any idea where I could find the right ones? Thanks for your help!

      Not impressed with the quality

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      8 days into skiing these and i shattered the shell. I was loving these boots, really bummed to see the poor quality. I already warrantied the first pair i got because the walk mode was defective from the manufacturer. Now I will be warrantying these for the 2nd time in 1 month.... just glad i dont have a broken ankle. Again, this boot is awesome for all the reasons they claim, but unfortunately it looks like there are some quality issues that prevent this boot from living up to the hype.


      Update: Tecnica has responded quickly and issued me a UPS label to send back the broken boots and they are sending me a brand new replacement pair. 5-stars on warranty customer service.
