Very good boot, comfortable yet reassuringly stiff. Very responsive with the added feature of posture correction.

Tecnica Demon 120
I have just returned from a great weeks skiing in my new Demon 120 boots and they are great. They have given me much better control at speed and have eliminated my old tendence for straight line ski chater. They give exellent control and power when carving. I was expecting to find them less comfortable than my old Salomon CF7,s but was pleasently supprised they were realy good even when walking to the lifts. the time spent at snow and rock and patience of their staff certianly gave me the right boots.

Although these boots aren't the cheapest you'll look at they are definitely worth the look. Bought these boots with the custom footbeds and can honestly say they are the comfiest yet best performing boots I've had. Really improved my stance as well reccomend them to everyone who listens for long enough!

My first time buying boots despite being a reasonably experienced skier, so difficult to review the boots. I was skiing in Val Thorens immediately after buying the boots and they became more comfortable as the week went on. I was able to tighten up the bindings when I wanted to ski harder later in the week with no ill effects. Better then most (any?) boots I have previously hired.
I have high arches and have found some boots (salomens) very painful on the tops of my feet, which is not the case with the Technicas. They hold my heels well preventing slop and movement and am very pleased to have come away with the tighter, more technical Demons rather then the softer, intermediate Technicas which were the other option.
The fitting provided was instrumental in me choosing what appear to be the correct pair of boots.

I swapped from a nice pair of salomons to these after just a year, despite the custom fit and remoulding of the salomons they just weren't right. I've just got back from a weeks skiing and these boots were faultless. I regularly ski black and like a reasonably tight boot, despite this I could wear them all day, sometimes not even undoing them at lunch!
I think they look quite nice, in honesty probably not as sexy as the salomons but nice enough. They were also Â£40 cheaper!

pay for the service - its worth it
Great pair of boots - not cheap but reassuring to pay for the fitting service. Boots have proved comfortable and work with my own insoles.

The most comfortable boots I ever wore
I bought these with customised footbeds, and just spent my first week skiing in them. On the snow they worked perfectly, I had great feedback and control of my skis. Getting them on and off is a breeze with the quick instep feature even with my big old size 12 feet. The important part is that by the end of the week they were just as comfortable as on the first morning. I'm a big guy at 6'2" and 18 stones, so a lot of energy goes through my boots - and especially my shins - so the fact they stay comfortable for me is unusual to say the least.
I also like the flex adjuster (via an Allen bolt). I am an advanced skier who has had 12 years out, so I was able to tighten the flex up as my skiing got back up to speed.
