rc4 the curv – control the CURV
The CURV boot was developed in close collaboration between the Fischer engineers and athletes to offer the extremely sporty skiers the boots they need for precise control and a fascinating curve experience.
A breakthrough which sets standards in precision, fitting, control and design and carries on seamlessly from the pure athleticism of a racing boot. Three main functions give you absolute control over the curve with the RC4.
Composite Flex Control
The thermoformable composite in the shell guarantees maximum control and unrivalled constant ski boot flex in all outdoor conditions and temperatures. As a result, the skier can concentrate fully on the perfect curve and make full use of all opportunities.
The perfect forefoot geometry of the shell allows extreme curve positions, exact control and optimum power transfer.Control impulses are directed from the foot to the ski with unrivalled precision and without loss – boot and ski act as an entity for maximum precision and economy of motion. The cuff features an additional rotation possibility around the vertical axis and can thus be adapted even more individually – for perfect curve control.
It is clear when you put them on the first time: everything is just right with the Fischer CURV ski boot. The shell and boot liner are perfectly tuned to each other. The three-dimensional preformed boot liner offers maximum comfort while the ergonomics of the shell and cuff are preadapted. Connected Fit means 100% control and comfort for sporty piste skiers who appreciate performance, quality and design.
VACUUM – The next step to perfection
Maximum individuality, uncompromisingly efficient and complete in its perfection – this is VACUUM. The interplay of three top technologies raises boot fitting to a new level and is unique in leading the way to a perfect fit.
VACUUM 3D FOOT SCAN
To guarantee maximum individuality when determining the right ski boot, an exact 3D scan of the feet is carried out. This means that not only the length and width but also the complete shape of the foot is precisely determined. An appropriate choice of the right boots can be made based on this analysis. In the Virtual Try-on the boot is then placed over the scan. Any potential pressure points can already be localised and visualised. Should an adaptation be required, one of the two fitting technologies VACUUM ZONE FIT or VACUUM FULL FIT is chosen.
VACUUM ZONE FIT
VACUUM ZONE FIT enables an uncompromisingly efficient fitting of the shell to the individual anatomy of the foot – in exactly those places where it is necessary. To begin with the pressure points determined in the 3D scan are localised and analysed. In the forming process silicone pads are placed on the shell and the Heating Pads are activated. There is then a partial adaptation of the shell to the individual foot shape to achieve the optimum fit.
VACUUM FULL FIT PROCESS
VACUUM FULL FIT enables a complete fitting of the shell through VACUUM 2Zone for maximum individuality and optimum fit. In Fischer's VACUUM FULL FIT process, the shell is heated to 80°C and then you step inside the shell with the boot liner. The Cooling and Compression Pad is put on and the stand position is fixed. Fischer has developed the VACUUM Station especially for this purpose. It is the heart of the fitting process. Compressed air is used to shape the entire boot ideally to match the foot – and the boot retains this shape once it has cooled down.
