Why We Like the Fischer Ranger Free 120 Freeride Touring Boot
Just like its stiffer older brother, the Fischer Ranger Free 120 follows the path of being an extremely versatile touring boot. Comparable in stiffness and control to most alpine boots, it is just as at home riding lifts on the resort as it is on the skintrack. The four buckle, overlap construction gives it the progressive flex and power that can drive any ski- inbounds or out. Slightly softer than the Ranger Free 130, this boot offers greater comfort and a bit more touch during your ski for anyone who doesn't want or need the added rigidity.
While you likely won't notice any difference in performance from an alpine boot during your decent, you certainly will on the uphill. Constructed with a Grilamid shell and Grilamid cuff, the Ranger free 120 comes in at under 1600 grams and will retain its powerful 120 flex rating, no matter the temperature. Flip the cleverly designed lever into walk mode, and enjoy 55 degrees of articulation for efficient strides all the way to the summit. For anyone who is looking for one boot to do it all, that unfortunately doesn't exist yet, but the Fischer Ranger Free 120 is pretty close.
