In the early days of ski touring, folks purchasing boots had to answer a most pressing question; “Do I want performance or mobility?” Thankfully, and much to the relief of our wallets, our sport has matured quite nicely, and we are now treated with many equipoised offerings. With the introduction of the Transalp Pro, Fischer has created a boot equally at home on far-out ski mountaineering objectives as it is making high-speed turns down the apron. The Double/Lock Ski Walk mechanism provides a solid interface that helps provide support during those aggressive ski descents but also remains supremely user-friendly to operate. The adjustable forward lean helps accommodate different stance preferences, and the full rubber outsole confidently provides traction on those icy ridge traverses. If you’ve found yourself seeking a boot that balances uphill efficiency with downhill prowess, then step into the Fischer Transalp Pro.

  • Pebax RNew makes for a stable and light platform.
  • Power Buckle System lets you find that position that is “just right.”
  • Full Rubber Outsole for traction while booting.
  • Double Lock Ski/Walk provides a powerful, yet easy-to-use interface.
  • Active Fit Zone Liner helps the boot to feel good right out of the box.
  • Adjustable forward lean helps accommodate your preferred ski stance.

Question from Ryan
 
This boot intrigues me -- unfortunately there's no Fischer dealers near me to try the boot on in store.

How would you describe the fit relative to a Hawx Ultra XTD, Zero G Tour Pro, or Lange XT 3 Tour Pro?

I've found the Hawx fits fairly well, but leaves something to be desired on the up. (I also dislike doing any scrambling on a gripwalk sole). The ZGTP walks better, but the shell fit feels a tad off for me (Is it just me or is the tecnica longer than other boots in this size?).

The Lange is a better fit for my slightly narrow heel and taller instep - but the walk mode leaves something to be desired when compared with these other options.

Answer from Cole P
 
Ryan, the fit of the Fischer Transalp Pro is very different than the examples you provided. The Fischer Transalp Pro is a 100mm last which fits medium/average feet. The heel pocket is an average fit and so is the instep. This is a great option for those that never felt comfortable in a low-volume boot but never fit well in a wide or high-volume boot either.

Question from Richard
 
Anyone else have sizing comments on these, I see sizing all over the place on the web. I currently wear an Atomic Backland in a 28.5 and was curious if anyone found these to be a similar fit, or if I need to size up. I keep reading they run small, but then see posts where folks say they're in a 27.5 for a size 13 street shoe! Thanks!
9/14/2022
Answer from Cole P
 
Hey Richard, they can feel a little short to some people but that may not warrant going up a size. I would recommend sticking with the 28.5 and if need be a boot fitter can get a little more room at the toes for you. Going up a size may seem like a good idea but if the boots are too big then you will have other issues that are harder to solve. It comes down to your preference in fit and how much work you are willing to put into them to get your desired fit. If you like to discuss this further email us at help@skimo.co and we can go over how to do a shell fit which will help decide which is the best size for you.

I've used them for a season now, which is as much as anyone has, and done a mix of backcountry days, skimo races, and even some resort days. Overall quite happy with them; they are lightweight, ski well, and tour well.
I was coming from old old tele boots, so I don't have a lot of modern boots to compare them too. I got a 26.5, and wear a M10 running shoe. Anything larger and I couldn't lock my foot in for descents, and I don't know if my feet are just odd, but at this size it did take me a heat mold and a couple punches to get them just right. Once dialed though they've been comfortable and offered solid control on the downhills.
The gaiter is a nuisance, and tends to make getting the liner out, or my foot in, more difficult than seems necessary, especially when the boots are cold from a night in the tent - that plus the difficulty I had in fitting them is why I marked them down to 4 stars. I have not had the cracking other reviewers have, at least not yet.
Still, overall they've been a great boot in many settings.

I've been really happy with these boots, and big thanks to skimo.co helping find the right boot for my foot! I retired a pair of Salomon MTNs for this boot, and have been loving it. Definitely a softer boot than the MTN, but has much better progressive flex and comfortably drives a navis freebird or my wailer 112s. I'm not the most aggressive skier of my ski partners, and at 6', 160lbs, I haven't found a limit on these boots yet. I'm usually a solid 25.5, with high instep, narrow heel, and wide forefoot, making some boot fits tough, but after about 8-10 days (~60k of vert) in them so far, skiing everything from deep, cold, spring pow to isothermic cascade mank with a heavy pack, I have had zero hot spots or blisters. I often need to have boots punched to make room for my first metatarsal head, but no medial pressure points with this boot. I was worried that I'd start to loose a big toe-nail for first 2-3 tours, however the liners have already begun to pack in nicely without any heat molding, and I'm feeling like I have just the right amount of space in the toe box without feeling like I'll loose precision with time. I have a little bit of heel lift that I'll eventually fix, but it hasn't been enough of an issue for me to deal with it yet. I often have trouble with buckles over my high forefoot (the Zero G's I tried on were terrible, and I've never been able to tolerate scarpas or dynafits), but this hasn't been an issue yet. While there's not a micro adjustment feature on these boots, I found that moving the buckle to the second set of factory holds dialed forefoot tension in nicely. Walk mode has been awesome- they don't move as freely as my Salomon xalps (my go-to big spring mission boot), but nor should they- and they definitely have a much better ROM than the zero G's I really wanted to like. I haven't played around with the foreword lean adjustment yet, not sure that I will, but it looks easy enough to adjust. Also, small things count, all the buckle bolts have the same t15, which means I have to carry fewer bits and screws in the repair kit when I've been out on multi-day missions. Overall very happy with these as a medium/heavy duty boot- looking forward to seeing how they hold up long term. I have no concerns about there ability to drive a bigger ski, touring in the cascades. As always, thanks skimo co!

Got the boot when they finally arrived in November.

I'm mixed on this boot as there are big upsides and maybe bigger downsides.

Upsides:
* It walks great. I was coming from years of TLTs and while it doesn't walk quite as nice, the walk movement was very easy and better than boots I had prior to the TLTs.
* As I had hoped for with a beefier boot, it skied really great. The progressive style flex was really nice.
* The walk/lock mechanism is beefy and reliable.

Downsides:
* The gaiter piece tends to get in the way of everything. It bunches and can be felt if it does.
* The buckles have no micro adjustment and I could never get a perfect fit.
* The upper buckle bail didn't line up well and would rub against the hinge, something I thought would be worrisome later.
* They are not, absolutely not, 130 flex. They ski great and I knew they were probably not super crazy stiff, which I don't want or need, but they are probably closer to 110 than 130.
* If you've wondered why I write about these in the past tense, it's because they cracked, on both boots, after ~40 some days of use (see pic). I've heard from SkimoCo and others separately that this has been showing in others too, already, for a boot that is essentially just off the truck. Thankfully SkimoCo is spectacular at warranty. I will not be keeping these when they are replaced.

Sadly my boots are cracking in the exact same spot on both boots (Left looks just like your picture and right it barely starting to crack), but still work just fine. Probably 200-250 hours of use (60-ish tours). Still really like them and will keep the replacements if/when they come.

How would these boots pair with a k2 wayback 106 for a daily driver in the canadian rockies?

Hi Jeremy, your instinct is good, that would be a fine combo! Plenty of float, lateral stiffness, and reasonably light for the big lines.

Overall this is a great boot. Similar to another review that is already posted I'm coming from the Tecnica Zero G Pro in a 26.5 with a 9.5 street shoe. The fit is similar with these feeling a touch tighter both in terms of length and toe box.

I love the range of motion and the transitions are easy compared to the Zero G. The boot is lightish but can still ski very well. I would say the Zero G skis better but also has 4 buckles.

The lock mechanism is good but can randomly ice up. The Zero G has a more reliable lock mechanism but this one is definitely better than anything that Scarpa offers and generally works fine.

I've put some big days on these (multiple 10K+ days on 104 to 112 underfoot skis) and these have been my go to boot for the season. The range of motion is very good and despite it not being the lightest option available, it's a great boot for an all day big mission or unlimited laps until sunset.

The sole is great and the boot has held up pretty well on more technical booters and ridge lines.

I would definitely recommend it for someone who wants a boot with great range of motion but wants a boot that skis better than other comparable lighter boots with a similar range of motion.

Question from Tyler B
 
How is the fit of these compared to an Atomic Hawx XTD 120 or Atomic Backland Carbon? Both 26.5. I feel the Hawx 120 fits perfectly. The Backland Carbon fits very well too but I think my instep is a bit too low for the BOA to lock down snugly. I'm looking for a boot between the two in terms of downhill performance. Would the Transalp be a good choice?
2/1/2022
Answer from Julieana
 
Hey Tyler,
This boot will have a taller instep than either of those boots. It'll have a taller toe box in general, and also a slightly larger heel pocket. If you have a lower instep, you might be a contender for the La Sportiva Skorpius, which is a very cool in-between boot. That one has a super snug fit in the instep, so potentially an option if the Backland Carbon felt roomy.

Question from Henrik
 
Are these boots capable of driving 106 mm wide skis / 1800 gr weight in crappy snow?
And how would these compare with Maestrale RS and Technica Zero G pro tour.

I'm 90 kg / 188 cm long and today use Roxa boots to drive my Faction Agent 3.0 but want a boot with better walking capability but is still heafty enough to drive the Agent 3.0
1/14/2022
Answer from Ian C
 
Hi Henrik, these boots will be capable of driving those skis but are not quite in the same league as four buckle boots such as the Maestrale or Zero G Pro Tour. The Transalp will definitely improve your walking range of motion though!

I have about 20 days so far with the Transalp Pros so figured a review was in order. I am generally a size 13.5 or 14 in street shoes, with very narrow foot, heel, and a high instep. With the Transalp Pro I went with the 29.5 size. I was skiing in the Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro, also in a 29.5, for two seasons. Very happy with the Tecnicas (although I was on my second liner and wore a hole in both around the heal), but wanted to get a little more range of movement for the uphill and was hoping to save a few grams. Definitely better range of motion, but unfortunately gained a few grams.

The fit is great. I thought I would need just a smidgeon of more length, but so far they have been just fine. I have a narrow foot with a high instep, narrow heel. This boot is a good fit for my foot shape. No hotspots, no blisters, no dead toenails, etc.

I don't think the boots ski quite as well as the Zero G's. You wouldn't confuse the Transalp Pro with a four buckle boot. That said, it skis really well. My only slight issue is that I feel like there is a little backward flex or movement if I end up in the back seat. They are on the softer side, maybe comparable to a 100-110 flex boot. I have used them with both the Black Diamond Cirque 84 and Atomic Backland 100 skis and they pair great with both.

On the uphills they are great. Range of motion is excellent.

Overall, very happy with them so far.

I figured I would post a quick review of these boots after 3 tours in them since they are new and have a lot of hype. My previous touring boots were lange free tours and salomon mtn labs. I wear a street size 11.5 or 12 and went with 29.5 and superfeet insoles. I like the fit, its comfortable while still feeling precise and snug while skiing. I will likely need to punch my 6th toe area before big missions. They feel light on the up and the ROM has blown me away very easy to take long comfortable strides. I am using them in the more upright, less aggressive stance and I really like how they ski. On a powder day I used them to drive my 1800 gram 108 underfoot skis and felt confident and comfortable. (granted that was in low density ankle deep powder) I have also used them with my lighter 88 underfoot skis and they drove them flawlessly. Some cons I have noticed: the walk mode has iced up on me many times requiring me to break ice to engage or disengage it. The internal gaiter and tongue bunch upwards around the top of the foot and needs to be "set" for downhill skiing (they even have these instructions written on that part of the boot) Overall I really like this boot and will be using it for all my touring this winter. Great mix of uphill and downhill performance for someone who values downhill experience and longer days out. I hope we see more lean beef like this from all the boot makers out there.

Question from Brian
 
I recently tried the Dynafit Radiacal Pro and found the instep and fore foot volume to me to much for me. How would the Transalp Pro compare fit wise? I have a lower instep, narrower heel and moderately narrow fore foot and am looking for a boot in this range to accommodate that.
10/9/2021
Answer from Cole P
 
Hey Brian, the Transalp Pro will be a better fit for you. The Radical Pro boot is a wide, voluminous fit whereas the Fischer will be a lower volume and narrower fit with a tighter heel pocket.

Thank you!
Please explain how the forward lean adjustment mechanism works on these boots
9/16/2021
Answer from Will McD
 
Hi Fedor,
The ski/walk lever is screwed onto the boot with a small shim above it. To decrease the forward lean, you would take the lever off and reattach it with the shim below the lever base.

Question from Barrett K
 
Is the last/lower boot volume the same as the Travers CS? I currently have the Travers CS boots and like fit, but would like to try something a little stiffer.
8/12/2021
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Barrett. The Transalp is built around the same last as the Travers, so the shell fit will be almost identical. The Transalp will fit slightly tighter out of the box due to its beefier liner, however, that should go away with a footbed/liner mold. Overall, if you get along well with the Travers you should as well with the Transalp! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Question from Matt
 
Thanks for the reply. I'm currently on Scarpa F1 size 25.5. How does the sizing of this boot compares? Should I go for size 25.5 or 26.5?

Matt
8/11/2021
Answer from Cole P
 
Hello Matt, you could go either way just depends on how the F1's fit on you. I would suggest going with the 26/26.5 for the Transalp if you feel the Scarpas are fitted well and don't need a tighter fit. If you feel like your F1's could be a little tighter then go with the 25/25.5. I recommend trying them on since the sizing is different on those two brands and you may find that you are in between sizes in either the Scarpas or the Fischers. I do think when you can dial in the sizing you will like the Fischer Transalp pro's as they fit a similar foot shape.
