Tecnica Inferno 130 (2012)
While this boot has spawned a Demon or two, we're not convinced it's the Lord of Darkness—it's far too good for that. Testers either loved it or they respected its flex feel, balanced stance and Power ChassisÐassisted edge power. It's very narrow from the midfoot to the heel with creature comfort elsewhere. The Quick Instep co-molding works to create a tight but comfortable fit. Devilishly easy on and off. Notes: Power Chassis boot sole system offers rigid interface with the ski and binding maximizing power transmission, Power Lock cam buckle powerstrap adds to the prison-like closure system, double anchor spine offers two-position flex index adjustment, dual cuff adjustment and removable rear spoiler provide stance mod options, Quick Instep co-molding at boot throat makes entry/exit a piece of cake.
