The 2020/2021 Fischer RC4 The Curv GT 130 is reviewed in the men's All-Mountain Traditional narrow category based on tests at Silver Mountain Resort & Mt. Bachelor Resort by the experts at America's Best Bootfitters, powered by Masterfit Media.

 

The Gist

This is an all new player on the All-Mountain narrow field for Fischer. The RC4 The Curv GT is a completely unique animal this year, distinct from the Podium race boot line, with a unique mold, new forward lean mechanism, new liner and new shell material. Its last is designed from the data pulled from almost 30,000 scans from Fischer's iFit 3D foot scanning system, and pointed toward this new 96mm as the optimal All-Mountain narrow shape. Fischer core technologies like Vacuum and Somatec stance position remain on board but with a move toward great out-of-box fit and performance, and additions like mounted GripWalk soles, micro-Velcro fitting pads and stealthy bootfitter's access to the liner tongue for clean modifications made over the top of the foot.

The Fit

Testers said the new The Curv GT has some, (curves, that is), but just barely--it's a snug one that grips the foot the way a true narrow (96mm) should, they said. The anatomical shaping is just enough that the low volume foot will find a happy home but bony prominences will probably need a little relief, either via Vacuum fitting or traditional bootfitters' modifications. The fit over the top of the foot is close, but with the ability to access the foam there for grinding via a slick micro-Velcro release closure.

Performance

The RC4 lineage lives on in The Curv line-up, mind blowingly quick edge to edge and strong enough to drive stiff skis on hard snow or through variable chunder with authority. Tests performed on last year's RC4 The Curv GT 130 yielded top scores for its damp and stable nature at high speed on hard snow--testers said its command over the edge was unstoppable in powerful carved turns.

Cool Features

The Curv boots are all built on a platform of thinner shell walls where wrapping and compliance is needed and thicker shell walls where stability and power is maintained--for a total reduction in weight over former models in the Fischer line-up. All are designed on almost 30,000 foot scans to determine the best three models to offer all skiers an anatomical fit that suits their foot and leg volume. With Vacuum fitting options and a forward lean adjustment (14- or 17-degrees) the Curv GT 130 virtually guarantees fit and stance perfection. 130-flex The Curv models offer cam-buckle style power straps, with softer models outfitted with Velcro. All The Curv boots come mounted with GripWalk soles.
