    Any changes for the 2020 130?

    I've got the older yellow 120s (2016?) and I'm getting tired of swapping out the toe blocks (I leave the heal on). Want to get the new ones, but I'm a little worried about the lower instep. The instep on the 120s just barely works for me.

    You could easily grind the foot board to get more instep volume in the new version.

    Just got same ones. So far so good after some spring lift served. Had to adjust the buckle in some to get a snugger fit. No touring yet but pretty solid for alpine.

    I like them.

    These don't appear to have boot cuff adjustment, correct?

    One other question, sorry. Can I mold these liners with the intuition rice trick? Don't have access to a bootfitter, but need to get a little more room in the toes in the stock liner with my custom cork insole. Everything fits fine with a pair of intuitions, so it's just the liner that needs work.

    Got my 130s (size 28) and have had a good fiddle with them. Here are my findings:

    -Walk mode hugely superior to that of my old 110s (size 27).
    -Less stiff than my old blue 110s. Go figure.
    -Very smooth flex.
    -CAS liner is nice, but doesn't have that 'bang' feeling of an Intuition liner. Swapped for my HV Luxury Liners.
    -My toes are very, very happy.
    -Roomier - duh. Have added some foam pads to forefoot, and now the fit is very good.
    -Not sure about the new power strap. Feels good, but could be added fiddle factor when touring.
    -Acceptable weight with Intuition liners for a travel/do it all boot.
    -Glad I got the 130 and not the 120.

    If the NZ season ever gets going I'll be back with more feedback.

    Two days in my 130s now.

    Very smooth, yet very powerful. Skis great, and is comfortable at the same time..

    Proper walk mode. Only actual walking so far, as no touring in them yet.

    New power strap is as fiddly as I feared. The fact that you have to undo the velcro then the little lever sucks. I shall have to develop a good little routine.

    Apart from the strap fiddle issue I'm very impressed.

    It's not as fiddly as a conventional race-type strap, and you can do it with gloves on.

    Personally, I took the one off my Mach 1 LV's and put a blue and orange Lange velcro one on (sewed Tecnica logo on first) and I took the one off my Zero G Tour Pros. If you want a more powerful strap with the option to go super snug, it's still a good innovation.

    Thanks, Greg.
    I'll probably get used to it. I just really liked the powerstrap/buckle on my old Cochise 110.

    Great boots, but damn they are cold compared to anything else I've worn. Wonder if a new liner is the key, even though the stock one seems otherwise pretty decent. Anyone else deal with this?

    I've skied the 2017/2018 Cochise Pro 130 (bright orange model) for a couple of seasons and am starting to have serious problems with the ski/walk mode. If I flex hard, and sometimes not even that hard, I can pop it out of ski mode. It's like the lip on the metal mechanism has worn down and doesn't engage properly any more.

    I took a look at the mechanism and there looked to be a bit of buildup of 'stuff' on the metal pieces that engage to lock it in ski mode - scraped as much of that off as I could and it seemed to be a bit better but the issue persists. It started in the right boot, but now it's happening to the left boot too.

    Any experience with this or ideas on how to fix it aside from getting a shop to replace the ski/walk mechanism?

    Ive got an issue similar this where my 2016 cochise 130s have a hard time going back into ski mode after touring. Is it fixable or is it time for new boots?

    I like the fit of the Cochise, but I have a bone spur on the top, inside of my right foot and ski boots really aggravate it. Anyone have any ways to solve this?

    Try contacting Tecnica... I had one broken walk mode in some zero G and they fixed them both saying it was a manufacturing error.

    Worth a try.

    A good boot fitter should be able to punch your boot to accommodate for this.
