Fischer Ranger 12 Vacuum 4.5 5 2 2
Great boot, recommended particularly for wide fits It has taken 14 months trialling several different boots for off-piste skiing, snow kiting and limited touring and the fitters at Snow & Rock Bristol have come good after many hours fitting although I have ended up with possibly one of the most expensive boots! The fit was good after the first moulding but following a weeks skiing I have had the width and arch increased to address slight cramping when the boots are done up very tight for more extreme skiing. The hike/ride mode is fantastic compared to other boots tried and worked well for limited touring and even better walking around the resort / apres ski but not so great if you forget to lock them back out when you head down the slope. Unfortunately the locking leaver does tend to ice up and can be very difficult to operate on the mountain, so I have drilled the leavers and added a small loop of rope. I was sceptical of the on/off piste spoiler, but it works really well and transforms the boot particularly when charging on-piste, although the plastic loop has pilled out on several occasions and has to be re-inserted with the boot removed. I was concerned about the liner as I believe last seasons boot proved to be very cold but the 2013/14 boot seemed OK and warmer than my old boots. The lace-up liners are a bit of a pain if you are in a hurry but it does improve the fit and the liner can be used as indoor boots. Compared to my old race boots and other 120 flex boots tested the Ranger 12 appears to be a little soft but given the superior fit, moulded stance alignment (improved edging) and performance I can live with this. My only real concern is the long term durability of the boot as the plastic shell does appear very soft and after only a couple of weeks skiing the bindings have started to cut into the shell (the logos /stickers have also mostly peeled off). For comfort and performance - highly recommended. 09 February 2014

Glossary

Vacu-plastPerfect fitting at 80 degrees for the anatomy of the foot for direct control impulses and more rebound through greater elasticity. Greater temperature stability and 15% less weight.
Vacuum fit:Th Fischer Vacu-plast material enables for the first time a completely anatomical adjustment of the boot with a quality never reached before.
Hike/Ride/Lock Mode:Hike: Maximum freedom of motion for the cuff so you can alk easily. Ride: The cuff is blocked at the back, the flex at the front stays smooth for perfect turns in the snow. Lock: The cuff is blocked as on racing boots for maximum performance on the piste.
On/Off Piste Mode:The boot can be adapted according to the respective snow conditions. Removed spoiler for more forward lean (17°, X-Series 17°) and hard piste conditions (On Piste Mode). Lowered spoiler for less forward lean (14°, X-Series removable spoiler with 12° forward lean) for deep snow and soft piste conditions.
