The hike lock mode is simple–a single switch on the spine of the boot unlocks the cuff for 60 degrees of smooth rotation–but bomber, so you don’t have to worry about play in the cuff when you’re standing on top of a scary line. Cooking the shell and liner won’t interfere with the transalp’s soma-tec ergonomic fit design, which is engineered to provide maximum comfort, precision, and power transfer, so you can skin and ski with unbeatable comfort and performance. Just about every shoe comes with a heat-moldable liner–the transalp’s thermoshape tour lace-up liner is no exception–but not many can match its vacu-plast vacuum-moldable shell and cuff. At the top of the cuff, a 40mm power strap cinches the transalp down so you can ski it hard without feeling sloppy, and an adjustable spoiler lets you fine tune your stance for increased aggression or a more centered feel. Ski gear is becoming ever-more customizable, but there still aren’t many boots that can match fischer’s transalp ts vacuum women’s touring boot when it comes to full personalization.

Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot
Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot #ad - The memory fit shell can be customized to accommodate wider feet and feet that require more volume in the instep. Being the lightest offering in atomic’s all-new line of touring-specific boots, the backland carbon light alpine touring boot is for the skier looking to shave ounces from their backcountry setup, while retaining much of the same downhill performance that can be found on stiffer and heavier options in the backland line.

As mentioned, the carbon light comes equipped with a soft tongue that can be left in when touring and skiing, or left out altogether to save weight. 5 shell size and comes equipped with a soft tongue to further reduce weight.

The addition of the soft tongue will add stiffness to the boot, which is punctuated by the carbon spine that is not only lightweight, but stiff and powerful for the descent.

Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot
Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot #ad - An adjustable rear spoiler lets you play with the transalp’s 13-degree forward lean, and a grippy vibram sole makes icy walks, rock scrambling, and parking lot detours a little bit less sketchy. Coupled with the moldable lace-up liner, this gives the transalp a level of unprecedented customization, so you can kiss hot-spots, slop, and pain goodbye for good. The shell is designed to complement the position our feet tend to take (fischer calls its ergonomic design features v-position and on-center position), for increased control and comfort, and it has a ski/walk lever that offers a killer 53 degrees of fore-aft rotation for easy skinning. Just heat the shell up, just like you would a liner, stick it on, buckle it up, and let it cool–the vacu-plast material will expand and then contract to the shape of your foot, improving fit, performance, and comfort. Three x-lite aluminum buckles pull your foot into the shell without pinching, and a 40mm touring power strap beefs up the relatively mild 115 flex, so the boots don’t get overwhelmed if you’re driving wider skis. Heat-moldable liners are pretty much standard issue these days, but fischer’s transalp vacuum ts lite alpine touring boot takes things a step further with its heat-moldable shell, which allows you to dial in a personalized fit that even grinding, punching, and padding won’t give you. Of course, all the fit technology in the world won’t make a good boot all on its lonesome, so fischer made sure the rest of the transalp was on point, too.
