Product feature
  1. CABLE LOCK 2-zone tightening system
    _Cable Lock: very powerful fastening wheel with cable. _ 2Z = 2 clamping zones. The force of the wheel is concentrated on the instep for good support, and the rip-tab at the top prevents incorrect tibia movements inside the snowboard boots. In terms of design, we did a lot of testing with and without the rip-tab at the top of the boot. It gave so much support that we've kept it.
  2. Boot flex/stiffness
    The Foraker 500 offers a medium flex. It is designed for people who take curves at very high speed (need for a stiff boot), while also allowing them to be reactive at small turns and surprise bumps, which require quick leg flexion and extension. Flex and heel support are both better compared to the Foraker 300 boot.
  3. Heel support: level 2 liner
    Foot support is essential when snowboarding, to be able to correctly steer your board (foot in the liner, and liner in the boot). The level 2 liner applies 5 concepts : 1. Thermoformable liner alone, at home 2. Ergonomic Heel Pad ankle foam 3. "2-point + strap" liner fastening 4. Hook & Loop Link between the liner and boot 5. Double layer of foam at the tongue on the instep, for support and comfort.
  4. 1. Self-thermoforming liner
    1. Heat a convection oven to 80°C 2. Remove the liners' insoles, and place the liners on a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray 3. Leave for 15 minutes 4. - Put the hygiene insoles back, put on a pair of ski/snowboard socks, put the liners on your feet and tighten them as you wish. 5. Put the snowboard boots on and tighten well 5. Wait for 15 minutes, without moving. Repeat as often as you like.
  5. 2. Ergonomic Heel Pad ankle foam
    The ankle foam fills the hollow below and behind the ankle to wedge the heel in. The level 2 liner contains a foam made in an exclusive Wed'ze material and shape: - its shape is based on an average of 40 foot scans. It is ideal for holding the foot perfectly in place and adapts to everyone - the material: a soft but firm elastomer foam. You can feel the support as soon as you slip your feet inside. And when you're riding, you'll feel no hard areas.
  6. 3. "2-point + strap" liner fastening
    On this boot, we have kept just 2 tightening points with the laces: - at the instep - above the ankle At the top of the boot, we have replaced the 3rd lacing point with a powerful clamping strap. We have therefore reduced the friction of the lace (2 points instead of 3) and concentrated the clamping force to better support the heel. On the upper part, the strap locks the boot even tighter over the shin.
  7. 4. Hook & Loop Link between the liner and boot,
    We've added a rip-tab at the back between the liner and the boot. The aim? To help prevent the liner from slipping inside the boot, so it's easier to steer the board, because simply holding the foot well in the boot is not enough: if the liner moves in your boot, you will not steer your board as effectively.
  8. 5. Double layer of foam at the tongue on the instep
    We have added a 2nd thickness of foam on the tongue, at the instep, for 2 reasons: - to help wedge the foot at the bottom of the liner - to increase comfort by preventing the lace from cutting off blood circulation in this high-tension area
  9. Insole
    This boot has a flat insole. It offers comfort and thermal insulation. If you feel you need to maintain your foot more securely in the boot, you have two options: - get a sole with a pre-formed foot arch and heel - get a sole that is thermoformed to suit your foot. This is the most efficient solution.
  10. Outsole: traction, grip, cushioning and thermal insulation
    Our Ultralight sole is 100% EVA. EVA is a very light material (80% air). This formulation is designed to resist abrasion while retaining its cushioning properties. It is a very good natural insulator and protects from the cold rising from the ground. We have designed large studs for superior traction. They are spaced quite far apart to prevent snow from getting stuck.
Product testing
  1. Composition
    Upper of : 100.0% Polyurethane (PU) Lining and sock of : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Outer sole of : 100.0% Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA)
  2. Storage advice
    At the end of the day, remove the liners from the uppers to improve ventilation and dry quickly. Also, remove the inner sole from the liner to dry fully in one night.
  3. Product restrictions
    This thermoformed boot will improve your comfort and support.

  • Bota izquierda bien, la derecha mal

    Las botas son bastante ligeras y muy atractivas por su sistema de cierre tipo BOA.
    No sé si mi par de botas está defectuoso o hay que apretar algo, pero en 3 días que las he probado, cada día se me ha aflojado la bota derecha una media de tres veces. En plena bajada me parece algo peligroso.
  • Système fermeture peu fiable

    Le système de câblage de la chaussure se ressentait à chaque descente. Impossible de faire une descente sans devoir s arrêter pour reserrer la chaussure. Le pied ne se serre pas correctement non plus.
    De plus le pied à tendance à s endormir par manque de confort dans la chaussure.
    En gros chaussure inconfortable, inutilisable car serrage incertain.

    Bonjour, merci pour votre retour.

    Je suis attristé de lire votre mésaventure, il s'agit bien là d'un problème de conception! Je vous invite à retourner la chaussure dans votre magasin Decathon afin de procéder à un échange ou un remboursement

    J'espère que vous trouverez une issue positive à votre problème

    Bonne continuation

    Douleurs au niveau du tibia impossible et aux orteils qui se finissent par des blessures. Alors, je suis désolé de déconseiller ces boots fortement.
    Response of the brand
    Bonjour,

    je suis désolé de lire votre commentaires.
    Spontanément, j'aurais envie de vous proposer de thermo-former les chaussures si ça n'a pas déjà été fait, car ça améliore le confort et le maintien du pied, mais à vous lire, si vous préférez de suite rendre la chaussure dans le magasin décathlon de votre choix, contre remboursement, c'est possible.

    Comme vous avez pris le temps de nous alerter sur votre soucis, pourrais-je abuser et vous demander des précisions, dans le but de bien comprendre votre problème et voir dans quelle direction améliorer nos produits : 
    _ sur la douleur tibiale : est ce musculaire, type crampe ? ou est ce que c'est plus des irritations sur les bords de la languette ? ou est-ce un point dur en haut de la languette ? ou autre ?
    _ sur la douleur orteil, est ce que c'est à l'avant que ça tape ? ou est ce que les orteils sont comprimés en épaisseur ? ou est ce sur le coté ? ou autre ?
    _ avez vous déjà thermo-formé les chaussons à votre pied avant ces douleurs ?

    ce n'est vraiment pas obligatoire, mais si vous avez envie de précisez tous ces points, ce serait avec grand intérêt que nous vous lirons, avec l'ingénieur produit chaussure.
    Merci.

    Philippe, chef de produit.
