    Undeniable performance.

    While Fischer's Travers Carbon Alpine Touring Boot may appear as though it gleans its name from the word "traverse," it's in fact a blend of the word "versatile" and "Transalp," which happens to be the name of Fischer's famed and dependable skimo planks. So, as its verbal denomination suggests, the Travers is Fischer's latest and greatest endeavor into the ski mountaineering and alpine touring world. 

    Weighing in at just over four pounds a pair, the Travers boasts an incredibly lightweight and pliable construction thanks to its Grilamid and carbon exterior, while the carbon fiber sheath in the sole assures rigidity and stiffness akin to your favorite alpine boot. Additionally, the Travers features singular power strap that consists of a ratchet and hook-and-loop combination as to provide a fine-tuned fit, and the Boa lacing system assures a personalized, pressure-free fit and feel, which is an especially welcomed attribute if you've ever had a pair of ill-fitting boots. More importantly, though, is the boot's free-pivoting cuff system that allows for an unobstructed range of motion, specifically 80-degrees worth, and when combined with the easy-to-use walk mode, you're able to glide up the skin track in no time. However, when encountering roly-poly or more technical skin tracks, cinch the down the cuff and lock-off the walk mode for more supportive, secure fit.

    Now, you might be wondering how Fischer planned on keeping the Palau moldable liner dry and comfortable, so grab your popcorn. Since the cuff and lower portion of the boot don't overlap at the front of the boot or heel, Fischer outfitted the Travers with a waterproof gaiter that fixes to the shell's lower portion and stretches just about to the top of the cuff. This gaiter is not only dexterous, but easily fends off snow build up and sweat alike. So whether you're searching for a lightweight and dependable ski mountaineering boot or alpine touring boot, the Travers has made its grand entrance and ensures nothing short of a good time. After all, it's all about having fun.

    Like a pair of socks you can ski in

      These boots have completely changed my backcountry skiing experience. With how light they are and with they're wide range of motion, the uphill experience is so much more casual and comfortable. They're like wearing a pair of socks.

      For sizing, going small really worked well for me. I went a full size smaller than than my previous Scarpa Freedoms and it's worked out great.

      On the downhill the boots actually stiffen quite well. Certainly not a dedicated downhill boot and feel a little short against the anterior shin but definitely still ski-able. I've toyed around with the insert that goes in the rear of the boot and think this will eventually make the skiing more 'boot-forward' but as of yet they've only proven to constrict my foot too much. Looking forward to messing with the BOA and buckle settings more to find the perfect fit for downhill skiing.

      Overall, a great, super-lightweight boot that excels on the uphill and certainly passable on the downhill. So stoked.

      Boots are getting better.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm very pleased with this boot:
      Range of motion for touring is excellent.
      Skis amazingly well for the weight.
      Comfortable.
      Independent closure of boa, top strap and walk mode are very versatile.
      Better in every way than my previous boot (TLT6).
      Actual weight in 29.5 is 1240grams
      I had to size up 1cm.
      Last is a little wider than TLT6 but narrower than Scarpa TX Pro.
      Paired really well with Volkl VTA 88 and Marker Alpinist.
      Use for day touring/fitness/long tours/multi day.

      Light and Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      An excellent sub 1-kilo offering with reasonable downhill capability for those that like to move fast and put in big days.

      The design of the boot is simple and eye-catching, especially the BOA system on the brass rollers. I can't say if these make much of a difference over a traditional BOA, but they certainly look cool. The ski-walk mechanism and the single top buckle are both solid well-machined aluminum. With both unlatched, the range of motion is insane (I can drive my manual transmission car in them). The simple design of the boot limits the amount of failure points on the boot over some of the more complex offerings from the competition, and would make field repairs easier to figure out in the case of a failure far from civilization.

      These boots fit me wonderfully right out of the box. The liner is quite thin and dense so I didn't bother to mold it, and it seemed to have molded/packed out to my foot shape after a few days in them. While the last isn't exceptionally wide at 100mm, they have quite a bit of volume in the forefoot and arch area of the boot compared to similar offerings from Dynafit like the TLT series or Scarpa like the F1 (both of which I have tried and not had much luck with). After plenty of 6-8k vert days, I've yet to have any major issues with blisters, hot spots, or foot pain.

      The Palau liners are light and thin but surprisingly warm, and seem to be very well made. After ~30 days skiing in these boots, the liners are not showing any unusual signs of wear. They do have eyelets to lace them, but I haven't found the need to lace them up. The back of the liner has a place to attach an included velcro-on spoiler, which I have found helps a lot with the stance and fit in the calf area.

      For real-world backcountry use, the downhill performance is quite adequate. I certainly don't forget that I'm skiing a feather weight boot, but I don't feel held back by it either. An experienced skier should be able to ski (although perhaps not exactly charge) on just about any terrain or snow condition on these boots. Like most tongue-less boots, the flex is not progressive and they ski best if you keep your weight relatively centered vs. really driving the cuff. They're nice and stiff until you hit a certain point, then they just fold over. In real world backcountry ski conditions I don't find this to be much of a problem. It would be more of an issue resort skiing in choppy conditions, which I definitely wouldn't recommend these boots for.

      In summary - a light, warm, and comfortable boot that you can spend all day running around in the mountains in and confidently make it down anything you end up on top of. Light is right!

      Excellent Boot

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This boot tours like a dream. I ski this and the Salomon MTN Explore. This boot destroys the Salomon on the up, no comparison. The Explore wins on the down, however the Fischer is by no means a slouch. I drive both a 100 and 85 underfoot skis with zero problems. You do need to learn to ski the boot, but once you learn the quirks it is awesome. I now wear this boot 90% of the time. I am 5-10 170 pounds and ski 169-184 skis 85 - 100 underfoot. No issues, a little soft but certainly workable, and a dang riot. Obviously not an inbounds boot, but it would be fine for groomer laps if you wanted to beat on it. I've got around 40 days on these, boa has held up just fine.

      I'm interested in this boot and I found your review helpful. Did you find the fit similar to any other boots you have used ? I am switching from a TLT6 because it is too narrow in the fore foot.

      Great AT Boot and Splitboard Boot!

        In the never ending search for a good hardboot for splitboarding, this boot is awesome. Super comfortable with amazing touring function. For riders over 160lbs are so no mods are needed to make this a great riding boot for splitboarding. For skiing this means a bit on the softer side; but if you are looking at a boot of this caliber, you already know what you are getting in to.

        The BOA system is awesome and the boot literally fits perfect right out of the box. Crampons fit well and the durability is great compared to some other boots in this weight class. Fischer has hit a home run with this boot, especially if you have a wider foot.

        Dan - wondering which crampon you've had good luck with using this boot? I've seen several comments about certain crampons not having an adequate toe bail and want to make sure I"m jumping at the right make and model. -Thanks

        Efficiently Crushing

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        When I first got my hands on the Fischer Travers Carbon, I was amazed at the simplicity in the boot overall and its weight.

        Essentially 1 KG per boot, with its closure/buckle system centered around a BOA synch for the lower and booster strap for the upper - It couldn't be any more streamlined.

        The initial impression was how comfortable and dialed in you can get the fit, right out of the box. I eventually heated the liners and was able to get it perfect, but right from the beginning I was impressed with its comfort and fit. The BOA allows you to get a consistent and tight fit around your forefoot without any pressure points.

        The boot last is marketed as 100mm and I would agree, and even say that it could fit a slightly wider foot (my feet vary in width often) - I have not noticed any slop.

        The walk mode on this boot is simple and very stiff. Its a quick flip of the lever and you go from the full range of motion in tour mode, to a roughly 95 flex when the power strap is ratcheted down and the BOA synched. The transition from tour/ski is roughly 10 seconds per boot.

        The touring speaks for itself. Super effortless motion in tour mode, great action from the cuff, and simple walk/ski mechanism.

        The boot also crushes on the down - especially when paired with a lighter weight kit. If you keep it all (skis/bindings) under 7.5 pounds (an easy task with the assortment these days) - you will float on the skin track and shred on the down.

        For the simplest touring boot on the market with the highest amount of comfort and skiability for its weight class - The Travers is top class.

        Unanswered Question

        I’m looking for a set of touring bindings to suit these boots, but I really need (want) a system that doesn’t require me to remove the boot when transitioning between walk and ski modes (or vice versa). I thought the Tyrolia Aambition was the answer...but now
        I’m told that won’t work.

        Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

        Unanswered Question

        Can this shell be punched out if necessary, particularly just behind the little toe?
