There is something mystical about the Mach1 105 W MV. It could be how all those letters and numbers in its name combine, Ouija board code style. Or it might be that women testers with a very wide variety of foot and leg shapes and different skiing styles all somehow managed to love its fit and absolutely freaked out about how well it skied.

Tecnica would explain this by pointing out how the Mach1’s interior and exterior shape closely hews to the anatomy of a foot. The company would note that its liner shape and construction mates closely with the contours of the shell's interior. And our test team would buy that; they’re pretty tech savvy.

But the curves in the CAS liner and shell are readily apparent even to the naked eye.  That level of detail led to universally sky high fit scores. There’s additional room for the toes, lateral side of the forefoot, navicular, ankle bone points and Achilles tendon. Our thicker calf testers wished they had a bit more room up top.

Testers loved the stout, true 105 flex. It was solid and progressive without any collapsing or feeling of being under-powered. More responsive than virtually every other women's medium width boot in the test, the Mach1 W MV had the second highest fit and performance score out of all women's boots tested.
