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 suits people who hold a curve with a lot of speed (need a stiff boot) but it also allows them to be responsive during small turns or surprise bumps that require a rapid flexion-extension of the legs. 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 your oven, rotary heat mode, to 80°C 2. Remove the inner soles from the liners, place the liners on the oven plate covered with a piece of baking paper 3. Wait 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 fully. 5. Put the boots on and tighten fully 5. Wait for 15 minutes, without moving. Repeat as often as you like. ONLY ON INTEGRATED OVEN 56x60x56 cm
  5. 2. "Ergonomic Heel Pad" malleolus foam
    The ankle foam fills the hollow below and behind the ankle to wedge the heel in place. The level 2 liner contains a foam made in an exclusive Wed'ze material and shape: - the shape was based on an average of 40 foot scans. It is perfect for holding the foot tightly 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 points + strap" liner fastening
    On this liner, we kept just 2 points of tightening with the laces: - at the instep - above the ankle At the top of the liner, we replaced the 3rd lacing point with a powerful clamping strap. We have therefore reduced the friction from the lace (2 points instead of 3) and used the clamping force to support the heel. On the upper part, the strap locks the liner 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? Limit slipping of the liner on the inside of the boot to help you better control your board because it is not enough to keep your foot in the liner: 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 support your foot more securely in the liner, you have two options: - acquire a pre-formed sole at the level of the arch and heel - acquire a sole that’s thermoformable to your foot. This is the most efficient solution.
  10. Outsole: traction, grip, cushioning and thermal insulation
    Our Ultralight sole is only in EVA. EVA is a very light material with 80% air. This formulation is designed to resist abrasion while keeping its damping properties. It is naturally very insulating and protects against the cold rising from the ground. We designed in large studs to offer you very good grip. They are spaced quite far apart to prevent snow from getting stuck.
