Custom Adaptive Shape
Tecnica has developed C.A.S shell and liner. Tecnica says this makes the shell more anatomical, and improves fit out of the box. The C.A.S shell features dimples in common problem fit areas which decrease the surface area and increase heating capacity of the plastic, making customisations to the shell easier, it also means the shell retains the new shape better and for longer.
Tecnica has developed women’s specific technology into their women’s range of boots, this means they are more specific to the female anatomy, allowing females to ski in greater comfort. The cuff of both the shell and liner of the boot is more open at the top, as females calves tend to start lower in the leg which is why women are the ones who usually suffer from calf pinch.
Women also tend to have poorer circulation than men which is why Tecnica include Celliant and Lambswool in their liners, this is thermo-reactive minerals that turn body heat into infrared energy, which penetrates deep into the tissues and increases circulation, oxygen and blood flow.
Overall here at Profeet we really rate the entire Mach 1 series, and having the different last options gives greater flexibility within the brand. Having the HV available is a welcome addition as it features all the great performance technology of the other volumes, so no compromises need to be made for comfort.
