Tecnica Mach1 Pro W LV ski boot review, 2017/2018 women's All-Mountain Category, from our equipment experts at Bootfitters.com powered by Masterfit.

The all new Tecnica Mach1 Pro W LV's stronger 115 flex delivered smooth, solid turns through variable terrain and over hard surfaces alike. Mach1 Pro W LV impressed testers with its revised, more comfortable liner that stayed locked to leg and also to the shell's interior for immediate edging response and hyper-tuned-in feedback from the snow. "Ideal responsiveness on a variety of terrain," said Tischendorf. "The foot feel translates to snow very well."

Testers vouch that Mach1 Pro W LV is a true narrow fit in the lower boot noting that the forefoot is quite tight on the bony points and will need a light grind or punch for all but the most slender of feet. Bravo, we say—narrows should be narrow! While the heel remained locked, testers reported that the upper cuff remained remarkably comfortable along the calf due to this year's revised liner. "Wow, what a perfectly set up ripper boot!" said Elling. Add to that Tecnica's new C.A.S. Cuff Adapt feature that allows specific heat molding of the calf to slender or thicker legs and you've got a fit (and performance) winner.
