The Flame is more laid-back in both fit and attitude than its sister, the Attiva Pro (below). Tecnica’s Rapid Access cuff swings open like a door for easy entry and exit and is molded into a shin-hugging curve for accurate wrap. The liner is plush, and testers noted that the adjustments went a long way toward personalizing performance. A snap-in heel cradle snugs up the fit and adds lift. “Fun, maneuverable and supple,” said MacConnell.

Best For

All-day skiers who don’t often stray from the groomed.
