Welcome Fischer to the skimo boot club. And what an entrance! The Travers Carbon is a compelling ski boot that weighs barely a kilo. It has the torsional stiffness of an alpine boot, due to the placement of a carbon fiber sheath in the sole. It has an incredibly smooth fit dial on the forefoot: a BOA cable rigged around brass pulleys. It has a rugged Velcro upper-buckle that controls the stiffness. It has a simple ski/walk mode lever for quick changes. It has a robust, waterproof liner cover to keep the snow out. It has 80° of ankle articulation. Did we mention it barely weighs a kilo? True story.
* With tech bindings, the boot sole is the bridge between the toe and heel, and a more rigid connection results in greater power transfer.
Update 2016/17: Fischer updated the sole after the early production run of spring 2016 to prevent premature wear. All our stock has the update.
