Auburn, NH (October 23, 2013) – Lingering thoughts of last season’s boot pain still got you down? Fischer Sports has the answer and is once again pushing alpine ski boot technology to the next level by introducing next generation Vacuum Fit technology. For winter 2013/14, Fischer Vacuum Fit boots feature Ultralon liners with a lycra-neoprene toebox, plus additional last width sizing to increase custom fit capabilities and warmth in all boot models across the Vacuum Fit family. 

Fischer’s Vacuum Fit technology was a worldwide sensation last year. Fischer Vacu-Plast material enables for the first time a completely anatomical adjustment of the full boot shell and liner with a quality never reached before.

“Until Vacuum Fit technology was introduced recently, the progression of Alpine ski boot technology was a little stale,” says Fischer Sports Director of Alpine Marketing and Product, Matt Berkowitz. “With the new Ultralon liner and improved toebox, Vacuum Fit boots are going to adapt better to wider feet, while increasing warmth. We now truly have a customizable boot for every level of skier.”

“Park and pipe skiing is extremely tough on our bodies,” says Fischer athlete Joss Christensen. “It’s crucial to have a boot that allows me to have the absolute most control over my skiing, while still being comfortable. Vacuum Fit boots are the answer.”
