When hitting the slopes, skiers know they need properly fitted and adjusted boots -- to help prevent injury, increase performance and provide comfort. While there are several different types of Tecnica ski boots to choose from, with technology that keeps advancing, you can follow a basic procedure if you need to adjust the canting on your boots. It may vary slightly, however, depending on your Tecnica boot model.

Place your Tecnica boots on a flat surface.

Look near the heel on the outside edge of the Technica boot to find your canting adjustment.

Insert the Technica adjustment tool or an Allen wrench into the canting adjustment.

Turn the tool or Allen wrench clockwise until your Technica boot is in the position you want. If you desire an only slightly more aggressive ski stance, adjust it only little bit. Turn it more to set it to a significantly more aggressive position.

Do the same procedure for the other boot.

Test the boots and skis out on a lower-skill-level slope to see if they are properly adjusted. Keep the adjustment tool or Allen wrench handy for quick readjustment, if needed. You will have to take the boots off to properly adjust them, however.

Warnings

Don’t over-tighten your straps, otherwise you may cut off the circulation to your feet. Never try to ski beyond your skill level, for your own safety. Ski with a partner just in case you need assistance or someone gets lost or hurt.
