The Tecnica Mach Sport HV 75 W is an excellent ski boot for the athletic beginner up to solid intermediate skier who has a medium to wide forefoot and medium to wide shaft of the leg. Tecnica's Double Quick Instep has softer plastic injected over the top of the foot that allows your foot to slip into and out of the boot very easily. The C.A.S. (Custom Adaptive Shape) Shell is very easy for a bootfitter to shape and stretch the shell if you need it. Dimples on the shell hold a press much better and with less effort than other shell designs. A Cuff Adapter on the Women's Specific Cuff Shape allow you to dial in a perfect fit across the calf muscle, which can be a problematic area for many women. Tecnica's PE Light Celliant Liner uses minerals in the liner to bounce heat back to your foot for a warmer boot than you have ever had before. Lift Lock Buckles stay open when you want them to that makes for taking your boots off at the end of the day much easier. If you are an athletic beginner with a medium to wide forefoot the Tecnica Mach Sport HV 75 W is a great choice.
