It’s said that “Necessity is the mother of invention.” While we don’t claim skiing a gazillion vertical feet to be a necessity, it certainly inspired innovation in the form of Tecnica Zero G Peak Carbon! This boot enters a small but increasingly prominent market of truly lightweight touring boots that punch above their weight class when pushed in downhill ski mode. It all starts with a carbon-grilamid lower and full carbon cuff. The cuff’s overlap design and doubled ski-walk mechanism together lend progressive stiffness when flexed forward. At the same time, walking cuff rotation remains as sparklingly smooth as one could hope for with a boot this streamlined. Two buckles and a power strap operate at strategic points on the instep and cuff to keep skiers snugged down where it matters. Underfoot, a Vibram sole makes short work of rocky scrambles or those unfortunate skimo races requiring a vertical kilometer of running before reaching snow. Is it a skimo boot for the masses or a touring boot for the carbon addicts? You can make up your mind but either way, you'll be happy with the Tecnica Zero G Peak Carbon on your feet.

  • Ski-walk mechanism incorporates a hinged lever as well as a straight shim to remove unwanted play in downhill mode.
  • Carbon-grilamid shell and full carbon-fiber cuff are music to the ears of fast and light skiers.
  • Two buckles with power strap adjust to your particular skiing style and foot shape.
  • C.A.S. liner flexes seamlessly and avoids unnecessary weight.

Question from steve
How do these ski compared to the TLT6 Black/orange (carbon)?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Steve, overall ROM is basically just as good and it's been noted that the downhill performance of the Peak Carbon compared to the TLT 6 with the tongue is even better. The Peak Carbon will also be lighter as well.

Question from Forest
Curious about fit/sizing for these boots. I’ve heard that they run a bit short length wise, can anyone confirm or reject that? I’m a 25.5 in Lange and Dalbello, just trying to figure out if I should size up!
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Forest, our experience is that they are a tad long if anything. They are higher volume than you'd expect from the listed last, a fairly high volume boot in general. I'd suggest you keep your same mondo size.

Question from jake
Are the zero g peak carbons stiffer than the regular ones? I currently get away with 90 flex DH ski boots as an expert skier (I just havent upgraded yet) so they should be okay for me right? I also have quite a wide forefoot and I believe a pretty high instep as well. Are these boots good for that kind of foot?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Jake. These are stiffer than the regular version and have a higher instep with a slightly wider forefoot relative to other boots in this category. For a more in-depth recommendation, please visit our online boot-finder!

Mike Z (used product a few times)
I’ve skied these for four days now and had a look over the comments and figured I’d chime in.
Stiffness- I’ve skied in the Zero G about 160 days the past two seasons and this boot is easily stiffer in forward motion! Perhaps it’s that I ski them in a 24.5 and the cuff is not “ scaled” down??
Skiing- for something this light with limited adjustment ( two buckles)to get a tight fit overall they ski very well. Would I like my forefoot to be more locked down? Absolutely, but the cuff/ ankle area fits so tightly when buckled that if you adjust how you pressure and roll the ski they work really well.
Fit- I have a pretty low volume foot and getting in is a very interesting thing. Super tight to get into. You need to rotate the cuff fully back and even then the “ sock” liner is so tight it’s a struggle to get in. I have found that once I’m 1/2 in I grab the plastic across the arch area that the buckle is on and lift it and that helps clear some room. Once in just standing there they feel a bit too high a volume in the forefoot but I now kinda like it as the lower buckle does a nice job of shrugging the area above the arch. Btw I think the “ sock” is so tight as it serves to help hold you back in the heel pocket when buckles are loose. I did add a slight heel wedge which helps place me in the shell better and tighten my heel pocket, I think they also ski better that way. I am going to try a front spoiler also. I think this fits shorter ( just compare stock insole length if you don’t believe your feet) then the Zero G.
Motion- with the lower buckle on loosest fit , top buckle just on the retainer clip and the power strap loosened just a bit I find the range of motion to be really good forward and average to the rear. For rear movement the strap being looser really helps for me.
Gripes- not much. Would be nice to get into them easier, maybe I should have gone up a shell size and added more underfoot to take up volume? Yes the buckles flap. That is I’m sure a weight saving step to pull the springs. I’m ok with it. I’m pretty sure I will pull the bladder straps out of the bladder getting into them.
Warmth- haven’t skied them on a truly cold day but so far I’ve been surprised at the earth as the bladder is thickness similar to a alpine plug race boot which is an icebox!
Conclusion- light as f##k! Zero G skis better by a bit and the zero g feels normal. This feels like an insanely light boot that is stiff and as a result it feels different skiing as the fit is more tight places vs an overall grip on your foot.
Wish they where less of a struggle to get into and can’t wait to see if they improve that. Oh… the carbon cuff is dead sexy!

Question from James75
Hey, is this boot ok for heavier skiers (195lbs plus backpack) or should I go with the Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro? I ski fast, but no major cliffs etc. And I need a lightweight boot for longer multi day touring trips. Many thanks for your help!
Answer from jbo
Hi James, the Tour Pro is stiffer and more supportive, but the Peak could do just fine for someone your size. What ski you are driving is also a big factor. Feel free to email us to get into the weeds on your setup.

Question from eric b
Anyone successfully get Intuition liners in these?

I use Intuition Godivas in my Zero G Tour Pro boots (yes, a liner designed for women—I like the ski performance of a wrap liner and the lower cuff height interferes less with rear flexion), but I have not been able to fit a wrap or Tour Pro tongue liner.

I just recently learned there are 3 versions of the Intuition Tour Pro — high, medium and low volume. Wonder if the LV would work.

Curious to hear what others have tried/experienced.
Answer from Jeff
Eric, I haven't tried to stuff one in there, could try. Light touring boots have thin, light touring liners. The Intuition Pro Tours and Wraps have very thick cuffs, which don't match the cuffs of light boots well. The plastic cuff doesn't close around them well. The High, Medium and Low Pro Tours is the thickness of the foot of the liner. And they would limit the cuff rotation and add weight.

Question from Scott
I have been out on these now a couple times skiing at the resort and skinning. Is there any way to adjust the forward lean on these? For my skiing style I wish they were a tad bit more upright.

And for the parts and pieces of this boot my wish list includes, spring loaded buckles to prevent floppy buckles, micro adjustment on the front buckle to make these more usable and effective, some kind of zipper or something to be able to open up the shell gasket would make it more easy to take on and off and insert and remove the liners, and a more sturdy intuition liner. One of these days I will find my perfect boot!
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Scott,

If you have the spoiler installed, removing that will get you from 15 degrees of forward lean to 13 degrees. If you have questions on how to do this, feel free to reach out to!
Answer this question:

Ben (hasn't used product)
I heard the shop got these in yesterday and I rushed in to get my foot in them. I have not skied them but I am writing this review because there is very little real world feedback out there. These boots fit quite well with a snug heel pocket, roomy forefoot, and a nice lower buckle that comfortably secures the foot. I think they would ski very well with a tall cuff height and relatively progressive flex. The issue is, the rearward ROM is terrible for a lightweight boot. We tried different liners and it is an issue with the shell, not the liner. The ROM is still probably good enough for most, and I think a lot of people will love this boot. For me, its not worth it because I already own the Skorpius which is a bit heavier but walks noticeably better.
Reply from jbo
Hi Ben, I've been skiing these for a while (including this morning) and tend to agree about the rearward range of motion. Not quite as amenable to thrusting a ski forward on the skin track as some, but it's not especially limiting, especially steep skinning with plenty of forward range. They really do ski well if you have a decent fit (will be too voluminous in the forefoot for some). Caveat is you have to make sure you're actually in ski mode...haha, it's not always just a flip down and go.
Reply from Ben
These boots will encourage even steeper Wasatch skin tracks, it doesn't have to be this way!
Reply from James h
Hey, has the range of movement improved with the liner breaking in? I tried them in the shop and they do feel nice and like they'd ski well but I didn't feel like I'd want to hike hard/fast or run in them as they felt stiff in the movement.
Reply from jbo
Hi James, sadly they are still not a running shoe! Not a significant change after a couple dozen days.

Question from Peter Riley
does the 30.5 size fit similar to the other Technica boots e.g. Zero G? Would like to order this boot but am limited by my (very big) foot size. I wear 30.5 or 31 in Scarpa, BSL 330 mm.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Peter,

The Zero G Peak fits pretty true to its listed mondo. If you would like help dialing in on the correct shell size, I would highly recommend filling out a boot fitter.

Keep in mind that Scarpa shell sizing is a half size offset from all other boot brands, with a few exceptions in skimo race and skimo race plus boots.
Answer this question:

Question from Henry
Do you think this boot could power a light powder ski like a DPS Pagoda Tour 112? Or is that asking a little too much?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Henry,

For a 1000g boot, the Zero G Peak packs a punch on the way down. However, a ski that is 112mm underfoot is a lot to ask. In really soft snow, you may be able to get away with it.

However, in variable or firm snow conditions, you will definitely feel underbooted. Also, driving a wider ski will probably reduce the lifespan of the boot. For the Zero G Peak, I would not go much wider than 95mm underfoot.
Answer from Philip F
They handle my Lotus 124 tours just fine. IMHO light boots aren't limited by big skis, they just have less suspension for variable conditions, but that isn't a ski width specific issue

Question from Frédérick Bourke
Hello if a have a scarpa F1 27,5 d’Houle i go with a 27,5 un thé zéro G Peak or i should size up … ?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Frederick,

The Scarpa F1 in a 27.5 will have a longer fit for length as compared with the Tecnica Zero G Peak in a 27.5.

However, without knowing your foot, I am hesitant to give a shell size recommendation. If you are on the hunt for new boots, I would highly recommend filling out a boot fitter!
Answer this question:

Question from will
How does the downhill performance of the Zero G Peak Carbon compare to the Scarpa F1 LT?
Answer from Jeff
Will, In this category of boots, the Peak would be the closest to the F1 LT. A tad bit softer, but also a tad more progressive flex.
Note that the fit is a good bit wider then the F1 LT, Good news for those who are too wide for the Scarpas.
Answer from justin w
So you're saying the F1 LT is stiffer than the Peak?? Im surprised to hear that. How does the cuff height compare?
Answer from Anthony O
This question is neither here nor there considering that both boots fit like polar opposites. The same skier is not going to have the option of skiing both with good fitment. One is going to fit considerably better than the other, in which case it will ski way better. Subjective measures of flex and stiffness all are secondary to fit, and I bet that if something doesn't fit you well, your perceived flex of the boot is not going to be as good as for someone who it does fit. The fact that scarpa's are not easily punched or modified also makes the fitting question a lot easier ie, The tecnica will fit more people better, and therefore ski better for most people. I bet there's going to be a fair amount of F1LT diehards that jump ship to Tecnica once they realize that they've been torturing themselves with poor quality fit.

The tecnica is narrower in the heel and wider in the forefoot. The f1 Lt is opposite. Cankle heel, pointed elf toe. I couldn't really feel a massive difference in cuff height, and whatever minimal cuff height difference is not going to outweigh how different the lowers are as far as fitment. I do think that the flex in the tecnica is more progressive in a good way.
Answer from Philip F
I have them both and have compared them side by side on each foot. stiffness is about the same but the tecnicas are much more progressive and less harsh feeling

Question from Herb J
Does the Peak have a bootboard and is Tecnica specifying a standing ramp angle and tech fitting pin heights for those of us who are level headed or rather, footed?
Answer from Jeff
Hey Herb, Yes there is a bootboard, can't remember exactly what it looked like when I tested them. Tecnica does say they have a 3.5 degree ramp angle (not commonly given for Tech boots). Tech fitting heights is something I haven't ever seen in boots.
Answer this question:

Question from Spencer D
So just hazarding a guess here, but Tecnica isn't showing any love to the husky footed boy with this boot are they... Similar fit pattern to their 4 buckle? Or have you not gotten them yet?

I'm so intrigued by the race plus category but realizing that there may not be a boot for me here, with my fat ankles, high instep and wide toes. Do I just have to buy and crack transalps every season? My radical pros fit well with work (and walk and ski surprisingly well without the tongue), but where's the sport in just skiing, when you could be boot tinkering too?

And is the new blacklight boot a TLT8 kinda volume? a PDG2 kinda volume?

Thanks y'all
Answer from Cole P
Hey Spencer, I agree that Tecnica is not favoring high-volume feet. Compared to Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro they will feel roomier, especially over the instep. The Dyanfit Blacklight boot will be the best bet for a wide boot in this category. The Blacklight and TLT X are not as voluminous as the TLT 8 and PDG2 but are still favoring wider feet and higher insteps. If the Dynafit Radical Pros fit you well then the Dynafit Blacklight or TLT X will be great options.
Answer from Spencer D
Thanks cole :) appreciate it. good to know that Dynafit remains in the mix.
Answer from Tjaard B
I have a tall instep, and they are quite comfy over the instep. The Zero G Tour Pro(4 buckle) never were, despite extensive mods.
The toe box is also much better shaped for me, with the big toe having length and room to the inside of its tip. The Zero G Tour had a more pointed toe box that crushed the front/medial side of the tip of my big toe.

Question from Adam
How would you compare the downhill performance of this boot to the Salomon S/Lab MTN Summit?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Adam,

In a comparison of the Tecnica Zero G Peak Carbon and the Salomon S/Lab MTN Summit, The Zero G Peak Carbon has the edge on the way down. It is the stiffer boot, and can handle a wider range of ski waist widths. If you have further boot comparison questions, feel free to reach out to!
Answer this question:

Question from Ryan
Can you please suggest a flex rating for this boot? How does it compare in flex to the Zero G Tour Pro? How much stiffer is it compared to the Zero G Peak (without full carbon cuff)? Thanks!
Answer from Cole P
Hey Ryan, the Zero G Tour Pro is a very stiff free touring boot and really can't compare to the Zero G Peak Carbon since they are in very different classes. In general touring boots can be difficult to state a flex rating for multiple reasons. The Zero G Peak Carbon is a boot that hikes incredibly well and for how well it tours the Peaks will deliver on the down. With that said I would not recommend skiing the Peaks on a daily basis with skis over 100mm underfoot and will prefer narrower skis. While the Zero G Pro Tours can handle the widest of boards. The carbon cuff will provide significant lateral stiffness to the boot but is similar in the flex pattern to the non-carbon Peak.

Question from eric b
Any preliminary thoughts on what size to order for someone who already runs the Zero G Tour Pro? E.g., if one wears a 25.5 Tour Pro, what would you recommend for the Peak?

Thank you!
Answer from Ian C
Hey Eric, most likely you will remain in the same size to get the length you need. However, other elements of the boot fit different from the Tour Pro so there is no guarantee that it will work out of the box! As always, if you'd like to dive into bootfitting details you can write us at
