Tecnica Cochise 130 DYN GW Build
Both sections of the shell are made from a bi-material PU. This C.A.S (custom adaptive shape) shell features an anatomical shape that matches the general shape of your foot. The anatomical fit means that you’ll have a close fit right out of the box for solid responsiveness.
C.A.S shaping continues down to the liner, where you’ll find another anatomically shaped foam for comfort and a vice-like heel hold. The external area of the liner is shaped to match the internal shape of the shall, while the internal area of the liner is shaped to match your foot. Pre-formed shaping helps to reduce any unwanted dead spots, or gaps, between your foot, the liner and the shell.
