The 2018 Fischer Transalp Thermoshape fits and feels good, said testers, who also liked its touring range of motion, light (enough) weight and convenience of use. They found its descent performance a bit lacking.
The Transalp Thermoshape's out-of-box fit was right on the money for a 102 mm last, testers said. Plenty of room in the lower boot and calf, with a soft feeling flex against the leg and an adequately cushioned liner tongue. They liked the fit while touring as well.
Fischer's materials don't specify the Transalp Thermoshape's flex index but testers said it was very soft—our guess at 90 is probably still a little high. Testers felt the weak forward support and occasionally collapsing flex feel made it difficult to control the ski's shovel and they felt stability on edge was hampered as well. They suggested this one is best for light weight skiers and long tours on low-angle slopes.
The lace-up Ultralon padded liner was a tester favorite here. Original Dynafit tech inserts used here as well.
