  Size Chart

The Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro could easily be overlooked due to its typical ski-boot-like appearance. It sports a four-buckle overlap design, rockered Vibram rubber sole, and ski/walk mechanism on the spine. Just a checklist beef boot with nothing to see here, right?

Wrong! The Tour Pro is elegantly simple and refined to such a degree that this boot will become the elusive one-boot quiver for many aggressive backcountry skiers. Four supportive buckles, one Light Lock Power Strap, and a Double Blocking ski/walk latch provide a true 130 flex. A 55-degree range of motion and relatively free cuff movement give it walk-ability to rival lighter boots. Tecnica also managed to get the weight of the Zero G Tour Pro so low that we don’t know whether to categorize this as a Beef Boot or a Touring Boot.

Tecnica didn’t set out to change the touring game with gimickry, but the Zero G Tour Pro has been masterfully refined to a higher level.

  • Extra-light magnesium buckles keep it locked down without weight penalty.
  • Grilamid shell with a carbon cuff delivers uncompromising ski performance.
  • Double Blocking ski/walk latch means no play in your mech.
  • Vibram sole offers secure footing when boot packing and scrambling.
  • Dynafit certified inserts provide confident tech-binding operation.

2020 Update: Zero G Pro Tour boot has gotten a color change for the new year with the same great design but an eye-catching black and red shell!

Question from Rob M
Getting ready to order - is the fit the same or similar to the Cochise? The mondo sizing? Thanks!
Answer from Julieana
Hey Rob, the liners are thicker in the Cochise but the shells are the same shape and size.

I just stepped up to these from some old Maestrales (~2014). The difference in stiffness and downhill performance is incredible! And they weigh a full 20% less than the older Maestrales (1614g vs 2004g). I'm sure new Maestrales would be a more fair comparison, but I'm pretty sure the ZGTP is still lighter than them and the rest of the 4 buckle pack. If you're looking for the best performance to weight ratio in a touring boot, this has to be it.

The one major downside of the boot is the the fiddlyness. In order to get anywhere near an acceptable ROM, you have to loosen both buckles and the power strap on the top cuff which will slow down your transitions. Furthermore, when open, the top cuff is quite large, which could be problematic for some gaiters. Likewise, I could see it getting in the way of delicate footwork for proper climbing (rock or ice).

It's also worth noting that the stock liner is surprisingly thin. I generally run pretty warm yet I've already noticed some cold feet on colder tours. I do plan to ride lifts with these and it'll be interesting to see how they hold up on a chair on a cold, windy day. More than likely I'll run the stock liner for a season and then upgrade to Intuitions next season.

This follows years a couple of years of use, after years of using the Dynafit TLT 5s and 6CRs. While not quite as nimble on the up, they are solid on the down. I can't evaluate the flex ratings due to limited understanding / experience, but if they are 125 they seem like a relatively soft boot compared to old Lange bang black 130s. Possibly it's the greater amount of play. I'm wearing these in 29.5 but wear Dynafits in 29. But I think not: they feel like they fit well, and I'm not sure I've even baked them yet except by use. There is no slop: it's a tight boot on and off piste. It does tour very comfortably, and that's likely an indication of some softness in the right place. They drive everything from 80s to 108s. They are thus far warm (no extreme outings yet). I have not toured extensively in these, because other boots I own tour better (only in my mind perhaps). I would use them without hesitation if the touring involved some serious skiing objectives. For alpine climbing, they seem slightly big and heavy, but that is what I used for years before these comfortable boots which perform well. It's only when compared with very nimble contemporary ski mountaineering boots that they seem larger. They would be fine for snow and ice up to grade 3. I would find climbing grade 4 and up challenging (as it is anyway), and if long, exhausting with these. They are not especially heavy, especially for a 4 buckle driver. Interestingly, my son, whose feet are about 11.5 to my 12, can't even get his high volume (big arch and shovel like forefoot) foot into these boots at all. The construction may not be for certain foot shapes, just like any boot. These are my favorite boots and I've been lucky to have good ones before them fit by the great folks at skimo.

Question from Justin
Hi Guys,

I see the 20-21 version of these boots are going to be red. Is there anything beside color that will be changed for these boots in the upcoming season?

Answer from Jeff
Justin, Just the color change and they added a Recco reflector. This will be just the third season on what was one of the best redesigns of a 4 buckle boot.

I'm stunned by these. I moved from the green TLT6P to the Fischer Carbon Travers, which I skied for nearly 200 days and 500k'+, to the ZGTP, thinking it would be a boot I'd use with one specific heavier pair of skis I got. After 1 week on them I can't imagine skiing anything else; they tour probably 90% as well as the Travers, maybe slightly better than the Atomic Backland Carbon w/the tongue in and decidedly better than the green TLT6P with the tongue in. The weight gain is so slight for the performance benefit, worlds better on the down than anything else I've owned for years. The last "beef" boots I tried were the old Technica Cochise 120s and the White era Maestrale RS, both of which had walk mode levers I felt could be described as "decorative"... not so the ZGTP. I've never been terribly fast (1600-1800'/hr on the up when touring, maybe 2000'/hr up racing) but these haven't slowed me down at all on the up.

The only thing I don't like about them is that, compared to the Travers/TLT6/Backland they are VERY fiddly at transition time. Oh well, good thing I have every other aspect of my transitions dialed.

TL;DR if you've been skeptical about the "beef" class of boots for their touring performance and disappointed by the crappy ROM in some of those boots, these are not the same thing at all. A legit 125 flex you can drive big skis hard in bad snow with, that walks uphill like a "race plus" boot.

What’s the BSL for the 22.5? Is it a true 22.5?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for the question, Annie. The BSL for the 22.5 is 273mm and shares the same shell as a 23.5. If your looking for a smaller BSL take a look at the Zero G Tour Scout! Hope this helps!

Question from Eric S
Hey guys, this might be moot for the year since you don't have my size in stock but...

I am a 27.5 in Salomon MTN/Lab, but 28.5 in Salomon X-Alpa, and 28.5 in Scarpa Maestrale RS (but they are too wide).

So do I want 27.5 or 28.5 in the Tecnica Pro Tour??

Answer from Julieana
Hey Eric, they are a similar length to the Maestrale RS so if the length on the 28.5 felt right then that might be what you'd want to go with. But since Tecnica is sold out of your size for this season I would suggest you come try some on at the start of next season if you can! You can also fill out our online Ski Boot Fitter so we can give you a more detailed estimate on what will be the best option for you
Answer this question:

Question from NICHOLAS S
I lost one of the two screws off of the ski/walk mechanism on one of my boots. Do you know if you have any inventory that would work, or should I just head to the hardware store? Thanks!!
Answer from Cole P
Nicholas, your best bet would be to go to a hardware store. It is a standard 4 mm screw, I would just bring the boot in with you and see what screw fits the best. Make sure you get some blue Loctite 242 so they don't back themselves out.

Question from Philipp
I have a Tecnica Mach1 in 28.5 which offers me a good performance fit (about 12mm shell fit). Should I size up to 29.0 for the Pro Tour to get more backcountry comfort?
Answer from Patrick C

It's always hard to answer boot fit questions from afar. The way we can help best is to have you fill out our boot fitter section (https://skimo.co/boot-fitter) and we can get more into specifics for you as an individual. We look forward to working with you!

This is a great all-around boot if you care more about performance than weight but still want something light enough for big days. It skis as well as my old MTN Labs and has no problem with heavier powder skis (Völkl Katanas). It skins well enough that I rarely feel the need for my lighter boots. I have used it for about 25 days so far and haven't had any durability issues.

Some minor issues I have had:
- Good backwards mobility requires fully releasing the cuff buckles which makes transitions take longer.
- This boot is colder than others I have used, probably because of the relatively thin liner.
- The ski mode latch sometimes fails to lock in deep powder but it's easy to clear.
- Toe buckle is pretty much useless but it is riveted on and difficult to remove.
- Power strap is also riveted on.
Reply from Lane A
I made some modifications to this boot to increase performance when using it as my only boot on an extended trip that involved a mix of touring and resort skiing.
- Swapped the stock liners for some Intuition Pro Tour liners. A size 28 liner in a 28.5 boot works well. This adds 60g or so which is worth it for the added comfort, performance, and warmth in my opinion.
- Removed the power strap (requires drilling out the rivets) and replaced it with a Booster Strap. This adds about 35g. I mainly added the Booster to help with skinny legs. If I didn't have skinny legs I would remove the power strap entirely and save 40g. The stock one isn't effective and complicates transitions.
- Installed the included tongue spoiler. Took me a while to figure out what it was, I thought it was a really small rear spoiler at first. This seems to help a bit with skinny legs.
- Hot glued the bootboard after I noticed a bit of slop in one boot on a long firm descent.

My 28.5 boots weighed 1525g stock. After all modifications they weigh 1675g.

If the TLT 5 fit you well, this should be a good fit. Size you should be a 29.5 (same as 29)
Answer this question:

Question from Michael
Would you say the stock liner is comparable in thickness to a medium volume Intuition Pro Tour or a low volume?

I asked the same question of the Hawx XTD. I'm a big fan of intuition liners and would likely replace the stock liners with intuitions. Looking at either of these as my next boot and wondering what volume to possibly replace them with.

Answer from jbo
Hi Michael, the are both probably closer to the low volume intuition, but what's more important is how much space your foot needs!

Damn these are a great boot. 10/10 would buy again (as long as no long term durability issues come up)

Skis better than most of the old 2000g-ish beef boots, uphills as well and even better than some 1200g boots (almost as good as Backlands with the tongues in). Keeping the clog buckles secured and the cuff buckles open yields IMPRESSIVE rom especially since it's overlap and skis amazing.

The upright lean makes wonky tech binding deltas much more manageable, but if you throw them into alpine bindings it feels real upright.

I actually had to get the Scouts since by the time I industry purchased, most people were out or didn't want to sell their last pair (understandable).
Reply from Cody B
One "long term" issue to watch out for on these boots. The screws that hold on the moving part of the walk mechanism can and will loosen on you. I was inbounds skiing with them and at lunch noticed that one of the screws was completely missing. Found another guy on TGR that this happened to as well. Definitely pull them out when you buy them and apply some Vibratight VC-3 (so as not to have loctite weaken the plastic) to the screws so you don't have this happen to you.

I've enjoyed the stock liners, but switched them out for Intuition Pro Tours (regular volume) near the end of last season since my Atomic Backland liners were shot and the stock Tour Pro liners worked perfectly in the Backlands. I haven't noticed any ROM decrease with the Pro Tours and it feels like it's stiffened the boot up just a whiff.

Another thing to note is that older Marker Tour F12, and older Marker Griffon (pre Sole.ID) bindings actually don't have enough vertical adjustment in the toe to properly adjust to the rockered sole of this boot. The Tour's come close enough... But I know for sure that Warden MNC, and Marker Lord SP's work, have yet to try newer Marker Sole.ID bindings to see, but I'd assume they would.
Reply from Cody B
After some more use of both the Scouts and Pros in Marker lords. The binding seems to have some geometry that doesn't always play nice with the rear and toe ledges of these boots. You can end up with dents in those ledges.
Reply from Cody B
Yet another small but important update. The 19/20 season boots ship with MUCH better loctite on the walk mode screws (hard to get them undone without heat and not stripping the screw head) + they include a ton of extra's with pre applied loctite.

The sample size floating around down my way was my size - hence the early review.

These boots are pretty sweet in every regard. They go down as well as any boot I've skied; better than Mtn Labs or Vulcans. They weigh not much more than most regular touring boots, but are vastly superior when descending. In terms of touring and climbing, they go well. I loosen all the cuff buckles. Probably could use a bit more range of movement aft, but that's a minor quibble. Sole seems durable and grippy.

The walk/ski lever is simple and reliable. The powerstrap is the most user-friendly ever. For performance to weight ratio, this boot kills it.
