New freedom

Originally made of leather and firmly laced, today’s ski boots are high-tech products delivering an effective skiing performance. The design of the Fischer Travers Carbon focuses on the obligatory fixation of the foot. Following an innovative approach, this ski touring boot combines an optimal fit with a natural freedom of movement. The ratio between giving the necessary support yet allowing leeway for the foot to still be flexible was entirely rethought. The ski boot possesses an extremely high torsion resistance and a weight of less than 1 kg. It supports the movability of the foot and offers high wearing comfort. It was designed with an innovative tongue design combined with a roller guided Boa lacing system. This allows for continuous adjustment, since the closing pressure is distributed evenly. Another advantage of the Fischer Travers Carbon is that it allows athletes to accomplish better climbing efficiency thanks to a rotation angle of more than 80 degrees. At the same time, the integrated aramid panel used in the sole ensures maximum torsion resistance. The Fischer Travers Carbon ski touring boot thus pushes boundaries in this type of sport.

Statement by the jury

»Adopting a new approach in design, the Fischer Travers Carbon ski touring boot led to an outstanding result. It offers users an optimal ratio between fit and individual freedom of movement. Thanks to a rotation angle of more than 80 degrees, it makes climbing more efficient. This ski boot is light and can be adjusted steplessly. The wearing comfort it delivers is astounding.«
