2013 Buyer's Guide Preview: Medium Fit Boots

2013 Buyer's Guide Preview: Medium Fit Boots

Performance and comfort in equal measure (99–102 mm).

If your ambition is to be a better skier, spend a lot more time worrying about your boots than your skis. Here are a few of the top performers in this year's SKI Magazine boot test, Medium Fit category. Read about all the medal winners from this year's boot test in our 2013 Buyers Guide, on newsstands September 15, 2012.

Nordica Fire Arrow   Tecnica Cochise 110
Nordica Fire Arrow F1 Several elements combine to boost Fire Arrow’s comfort and performance scores in its second year. The flex is softer, and the liner has more contouring and cushioning at the shin. It still commands the edge crisply but has a more friendly, playful feel, and the flex adjustment now has a more noticeable effect. “Very centered—good for two-footed skiing.”
MSRP: $935
Width: 16/2/H
Flex Index: 125

Tecnica Cochise 110 The new Cochise 110 rides into sidecountry battle with a full complement of gadgetry, including pulley-buckle Velcro power strap, finger-pull cuff release, and interchangeable tech and alpine soles. It’s highly manageable with a comfortable cruising attitude, sufficient power to the edge, and a tactile feel underfoot. “Top-shelf alpine skiability with a tour mode.” 
MSRP: $700
Width: 100 mm
Flex Index: 110
