2023 Tecnica Cochise BT 120 Ski Boot
Tecnica Cochise BT 120 Ski Boots
The Tecnica Cochise 120 is a high-performance freeride boot designed for skiers that want the power and support of a true alpine boot along with the capability to hit the skin track when the lines get too long or the snow gets tracked out. The Cochise 120, as indicated by its name, features a flex rating of 120 which supports all but the hardest charging skiers out there. For a lot of people 120 is plenty stiff, especially if you're on the lighter side. The T-Ride Walk mode mechanism ensures that there is no play, and locks in when you're in ski mode for seamless energy transfer and improved lateral stiffness. Tecnica takes pride in trying to provide the best out-of-the-box fit. The boot is anatomically shaped and is designed with features that allow for easier and more effective fit customization for those of us who have trouble spots no matter which boot we try on. GripWalk soles offer some nice grip when you're scrambling around on exposed terrain and just makes walking a bit more pleasant overall. In the world of hybrid boots, the Cochise form Tecnica is regarded as one of the top dogs in its category. From early morning lift laps to sunset skins to the top of your favorite peak, the Cochise is ready to take you anywhere you want to ski.

120-130 flex would be your flex range. The 120 actually would be ideal, not too soft and not to stiff. I am am proponent of sticking with the same brand that fits your foot the best, so in your case the Tecnica Cochise 120 would be ideal.
Nice work and research! You have done your homework well!
I was looking into the Cochise 120, and was kind of caught between two sizes. I have been using the 2015 Tecnica Mach 1 MV's in a 28.5 for about 3 seasons now on a variety of skis (188 Atomic 97ti, 186 Enforcer 88, and 184 Black crows Atris in the current quiver, then adding a 50/50 touring setup with 174 QST 106s). the Mach 1's were a used pair that was already modified to fit wider feet and they fitted my feet perfectly. I know the Cochise runs a little smaller than the Mach 1 already, so I'm not sure if a 28.5 or a 29.5 would be better. Any thoughts?
If it helps I am an advanced skier 5'10" and about 160.
Thanks for the help!
The BSL is a bit shorter, but the fit is just about the same, still with the ability to widen the forefoot. I'd go 28.5--usually a tough call to upsize in boots unless your feet are really telling you that you need the room. Have fun!
