Technical Information

A word from the product manager

Thank you.
For 2 years, your feedback has told us that this model could be improved, particularly its comfort.
In January 2019, we designed new liners and had them blind-tested by 10 users, comparing them with those in-store. The result was unanimous: the new liners are much more comfortable.
This winter, all Foraker 500s are fitted with the new liners.
Thank you for your feedback on our products, which are increasingly becoming your products.

CABLE LOCK 2-zone tightening system

_Cable Lock: very powerful cable tightening wheel.
_ 2Z = 2 tightening zones.
The force of the wheel is concentrated on the instep for good support, and the rip-tab at the top prevents incorrect shin movements inside the snowboard boots. During the design work, we did a lot of testing with and without the rip-tab on the top of the boot. It gave so much support that we've kept it.

Boot flex/stiffness

The Foraker 500 offers a medium flex.
It’s designed for 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.
Both flex and heel support are better than the Maoke 300 boot.

Heel support: level 2 liner

Foot support is essential when snowboarding, to correctly steer your board (foot in the liner, and liner in the boot).
The level 2 liner applies 5 concepts:
1. thermoformable liner at home
2. malleolus foam "Ergonomic Heel Pad"
3. Slip on "2 points + strap",
4. link between liner and shoe "Hook & Loop Link"
5. double layer of foam at the tongue on the instep, support and comfort.

1. Thermoforming the liner by yourself / WARNING


1. Thermoforming the liner by yourself / INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat your oven, on fan mode, to 80°C
2. Remove the inner soles of the liners, place the liners on the oven plate with some greaseproof baking paper
3. Wait 15 min
4. Put the insoles back in. Put on a pair of skiing-snowboarding socks. Put on the liners and tighten fully.
5. Put the boots on and tighten fully
5. Wait 15 minutes, staying still
You can repeat this stage if you feel discomfort or a lack of support

2. "Ergonomic Heel Pad" ankle foam

Ankle foams fill the anatomical hollow under 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 comes from an average of 40 foot scans. It’s perfect for wedging the foot 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 ride, there are no hard points.

3. "2-point + strap" liner tightening

On this liner, we kept just 2 points of tightening with laces:
- at the instep
- above the ankle
At the top of the liner, we replaced the 3rd lacing point with a powerful tightening strap.
We therefore reduced the friction of the lace (2 points instead of 3) and concentrated the tightening force to better support the heel. On the upper part, the strap locks the liner even tighter to the shin.

4. Hook & Loop Link between the liner and boot

We added a rip-tab at the back between the liner and the boot.
The aim? To stop the liner slipping inside the boot to help you better control your board, because it’s not enough just to hold your foot in the liner: if the liner moves in the boot, you’ll be less able to control your board properly.


The insole of this boot is flat. It offers comfort and thermal insulation. If you feel you need to support your foot more securely in the liner, you have two options: - get a sole with a pre-formed foot arch and heel - get a sole that can be thermoformed to suit your foot. This is the most effective solution.

Sole: grip, adhesion, cushioning and thermal insulation

Our Ultralight sole is only in EVA. EVA is a very light material made of 80% air. This formulation is designed to resist abrasion while retaining its cushioning properties. It is naturally very insulating and protects you against the cold coming up from the ground. We designed large studs to provide you with very good grip. Sufficiently far apart from each other, they help get rid of the snow.

How can I be sure it's the right size?

1. Put the boot on
2.Tighten the boot
3. Stand upright
4. Your big toes should just touch the tip of the boot without causing unpleasant pressure
5. Bend your legs forward, your big toes move backwards and no longer touch the end of the boot.
