Carbon Lite VS Touring

Fischer Carbon Lite Classic Cross-Country Ski Boot. A lightweight classic boot designed more for racing. © Jared ManninenFischer Carbon Lite Classic Cross-Country Ski Boot (interior). Pulling back the gaiter, you can see that the "boot" looks more like a track shoe. This is about as minimal as it gets. © Jared ManninenFischer Touring Classic Cross-Country Ski Boot. A very basic "touring" or classic cross-country ski boot. There's nothing wrong with this boot, but it's definitely not nearly as lightweight or made with the same high quality materials as the carbon lite racing-oriented classic boot. © Jared ManninenFischer Touring Classic Cross-Country Ski Boot. There is no ankle support, per se, with this touring boot, but the insulation materials do extend much higher than the carbon lite racing-oriented boot. There's also a metal loop at the base of the zipper designed to hold a larger gaiter in place. © Jared Manninen
