TECHNICAL INFORMATION

A word from the product manager

Thank you.
For 2 years, your feedback has told us that this model can be improved, particularly its comfort.
In January 2019, we designed new liners and had them bling tested by 10 users, comparing them with those in-store. The result was unanimous: the new liners are much more comfortable.
This winter, 100% of Foraker 500 are fitted with the new liners.
Thank you for your feedback on our products, they are increasingly becoming yours.

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 shoes. In terms of design, we did a lot of testing with and without the rip-tab at the top of the shoe. It gave so much support that we've kept it.

Shoe flex/stiffness

The Foraker 500 offers a medium flex.
It responds to people who hold a curve with a lot of speed (need a stiff shoe) 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 shoe.

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 shoe).
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. 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

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.

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.

4. Hook & Loop Link between the liner and shoe

We've added a rip-tab at the back between the liner and the shoe.
The aim? Limit slipping of the liner on the inside of the shoe 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 shoe, you will not steer your board as effectively.

Insole

This shoe 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: - 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.

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.
