Fischer has a winner. The fit of this boot is one that comes as close as any to really accommodating all kinds of feet. Now featuring an outer membrane that is breathable for improved moisture management. The foam padding is more dense and thinner than in the past providing a less bulky, lighter boot.
On the outside, Fischer uses the F5 Pebax sole designed for NNN bindings. The skate boot has a very stiff Pebax sole. This injection molded sole doesn’t vary in stiffness with changes in temperature. New for 2013/14 is the Rottefella Xcelerator Sole. This design feature places the skier’s heel on the same plane as the ball of the foot. Many competitive skiers at the top levels have asked for boots with this sole. For some time athletes have played with wedges under the front of the boot to raise the ball of the foot to achieve a “neutral” position. The Xcelerator Sole achieves this neutral position without the use of the wedge under the binding. The position of the whole foot is now closer to the ski enhancing the feel of the ski on the snow.
An exterior strap over the instep is wide enough to be comfortable and angled enough to pull the whole foot down and back in the boot. A Velcro strap system on the Carbonlite models allows individual and fast adjustment of the Carbon Flex Cuff. The cuff can be canted so that the angle of the cuff will accommodate the angle of the tibia (shin bone). This lets the skier stand naturally and have the ski boot sole be flat on the ski.
