I love the flexibility of having a lightweight boot that I can hike and tour up with without having to compromise performance of the actual fun part — the skiing!
The Ranger Free 130 is Fischer’s response to the demands of skiers everywhere for a boot boasting tech inserts, a wide range-of-motion walk mode and low weight, all packed into a boot with a true 130 flex rating. On the skin track and bootpack, a 55-degree cuff rotation improves striding efficiency and rubber GripWalk soles ensure stability when ascending slippery couloirs or ridgelines. The use of Grilamid gives the Ranger Free 130 an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio (1,540 grams per boot), ensuring you can flex the boot to high heaven without compromise and still move briskly up, down and around the mountain.
The Fischer Ranger One 130 Boots 2020 are the new sibling of the Ranger Free 130, which have been highly lauded since their release last year. These boots come in a slightly wider last, with a bit more weight and lower price point, making ’em an ideal entry level boot for skiers looking to break into touring. The Ranger One’s lower shell and last are both customizable (the last can be increased by up to three millimeters), ensuring you have the ideal fit and can handle a full-fledged day skiing from bell to bell.
