2018 Tecnica Mach1 100 MV ski boots

Tecnica's Mach1 series is a big step forward in ski boot design and performance. Designed around a concept called Custom Adaptive Shape, legendary Tecnica performance is now offered in a boot that fits very, very well out of the box.  And, it is also super easy to customize if necessary. The Mach1 series is not only the best fitting Tecnica ever, but also one of the best skiing, high performance boots money can buy.

CAS (Custom Adaptive Fit) is integrated into every component in the ski boot. The boot can be completely disassembled, with no rivets to drill out anywhere. The shell, liner and footboard can be very easily modified with basic tools. Even the tongue has CAS capabilities with a large section on the lower tongue cut out to relieve instep pressure. This area of the tongue can easily be modified further if you have problem areas on the top of your foot.  Dimples in the surfaces of the shell, liner and foot board act as a road map to mark where changes need to occur.  This type of system has never been used in a ski boot that we know of.

The CAS liner is also very unique, in that it is construction with very firm, molded outer panels that very specifically match the internal shape of the shell. This eliminates much of the open space between liner and shell that is a performance disadvantage in most ski boots. Anything that helps energy travel through the boot to the ski results in quicker response and better control for a good skier. This liner can be heat molded, but that is not necessary as it will mold well to the foot during use.

The boot offered here is the Mach 1 100 MV (100mm Medium Volume). This is the perfect flex ski boot for most aspiring expert, but not quite there yet, weekend warriors.  It has only a few less features than the top of the line boots in this Mach I series.  And, don't get caught up comparing this 100 flex boots to other so cheaper boots on the market that look to be the same as this 100 flex model.  This is a very substantial, performance minded boot, unlike many others that are totally stripped down imposters.  There boot is almost exactly comparable to the stiffer 120 flex Mach I, with only a small difference in liner, in the back spoiler, and in the power strap.  You can also find the stiffer flexing 120 and 130 versions in our eBay store. The Mach1 series is Tecnica's most sophisticated ski boot design ever, and one of the top skiing boots on the market.

Check out the features of the Mach1 100 MV:

  • CAS Polyester shell construction is a springier material Tecnica uses, compared to normal ski boot shell material.  CAS makes this boot easy to customize, and reassemble as needed now, and in the future.
  • CAS molded liner panels fit the inside shape of the shell very closely.  Less dead space between liner and shell means that the boot needs less break in to arrive at its final shape.  Bottom line, this is the best fitting Tecnica boot ever right out of the box.  This is the stiffest, firmest liner available in this series.
  • Easy Entry quick instep design makes the boot easier to get in and out of.  Where the boot overlaps on the top of the foot, the plastic is very, very thin.  This allows the foot to slide in and out much easier.
  • Two bolt rear cuff allows flex tuning by removing one, or both bolts to soften the flex of the boot.
  • Dual upper cuff canting allows the boot to be adjusted to fit the shape and angle of your legs, assuring that the boot sole is flat to the snow
  • Very nice, easy to use micro adjustable buckles
  • 100mm Last - This is the shell width that most skiers with average feet will choose.  Offers a sensitive feel for the snow, but with the all day comfort and toe room that many performance minded skiers are looking for.  It has approximately 7% more shell volume than Tecnica LV (narrow lasted) shell shape.  Close fitting for top performance, but still with room where you need it for all day comfort.
How does the Tecnica Mach1 100 MV fit? This is not a boot for wide feet but it does fit average volume feet very well.  Snug, close fit for average feet, with quite a bit of toe room in the shell.  This is a not a big volume boot, and definitely for a skier who knows that they want a performance fitting ski boot.  It has the perfect blend of snugness for performance skiing, but can also be very comfortable for a skier looking for a very close fitting ski boot. Very easy to put on and take off. Feels firm out of the box, but gets better and better after you've had it on for a few minutes. Just like any performance boot, it's very important that the boot not be cold when tried on.
