The Magma has a fantastically accommodating 100-mm forefoot cocoon, which will leave your feet in fighting trim for tomorrow’s skiing. It’s laden with signature Tecnica technology. The shin-wrapping Rapid Access cuff swings open for easy entry, and the Dual Pivot cuff allows customization of the forward flex trajectory. The flex is relatively soft, but the lateral quickness is all there, so there’s plenty of steering power. “It makes a natural connection between skier and ski,” said Gleason.

Best For

Those prone to foot pain.

Not For

Tall skiers, who’ll need to foot-steer harder.
