Features of the product

A word from the product manager
"We designed this boot to offer you a good compromise between comfort and easy tightening. New improvements for 2017-2018 include: - quick tightening concentrated at the instep for better support, addition of a rip-tab on the tibia to eliminate the gap between the tibia and the tongue, - larger fit to ensure good support and comfort for all, - very lightweight, cushioning, insulating EVA sole (80% air) that protects from cold ground."
Why the name
Mount Foraker is the 2nd highest mountain in Alaska. It rises to 5,304 m and is located in the Denali National Park. We have named our men's boots after it, indicating the different levels with the numbers 300, 500 and 700, corresponding to how well they support the foot. Indeed, the faster you go, the greater the pressure applied to the board through your boot: So you're foot must be supported sufficiently in the boot to minimise disruptive incorrect foot movements.
Fast Lock 2-zone tightening system
"The Foraker 300 easy-tightening system was inspired by a snowboard instructor's comment: "we need to do away with traditional laces that have to be tied, I waste too much time at the beginning of my lessons tightening my clients' laces". We have improved that this winter by adding a rip-tab on the tibia for better fastening. 1. Quick and powerful tightening concentrated on the instep, to support the foot. 2. A rip-tab on the tibia to eliminate the gap between the tibia and the tongue."
Boot flex/stiffness
The introduction of soft flex was a deliberate decision.It is comfortable to use, reduces physical fatigue and allows you to fully enjoy your day on the snow. It also offers the advantage of helping beginners adopt a good position on their board: ankles are flexed to avoid stiff legs. You have to react quickly when you're snowboarding, so you need to have bend in your knees. Starting with a boot that's too stiff will hinder your progress. Please note:the cold and binding make the boot more rigid
Heel support: level 1 liner
"Foot support is essential when snowboarding in order to correctly steer your board. The foot must be well supported in the liner, and the liner well supported in the boot. The level 1 liner applies 5 concepts: - thermoformable liner alone, at home, - comfort heel pad ankle foam, - 3-point liner fastening, - hook & loop link between the liner and boot, - double foam: double layer of foam at the tongue on the instep, for support and comfort."
Autonomous liner thermoforming
- Heat up your oven in convection mode to 80 °C - Remove the surface dirt off soles, place the soles on the oven hob with greaseproof paper - Wait 15 minutes - Replace the soles, put on a pair of ski-snowboard socks, place the soles on feet when suitable. Then put on the snowboard boots and tighten fully - Wait 15 minutes, whilst remaining still, preferably standing It is possible to repeat this operation.
Comfort heel pad ankle foam
"Ankle foam fills the hollow below and behind the ankle to wedge the heel in well. The level 1 liner has 10-mm thick single-material ankle foam that is quite soft. The aim is to provide the right heel/foot support for the type of boot. Because the faster you go, the greater the energy involved, and the more foot support you need. The Comfort Foam padding fulfils this objective by providing optimum comfort for everyone.
3-point liner fastening
"3-point tightening (instead of 4-point) offers 2 big advantages: - support: it blocks the heel very effectively because there is less friction with the laces and a maximum amount of energy is transferred to the 3rd and final tightening point, situated at the ankle, thereby providing optimum support. - warmth: given that there is no 4th tightening point at the instep, the blood flows more easily to the toes. This keeps your toes warm."
Hook & loop link between the liner and boot
"We've added a rip-tab between the liner and the boot, at the back. The aim? To help prevent the liner from slipping inside the boot, so it's easier to steer the board."
Sole: grip, foothold, cushioning and thermal insulation
Our new Ultralight sole is 100% EVA. EVA is a very light material (80% air). This design is able to resist abrasion whilst maintaining its cushioning properties. It is naturally very insulating and protects from the cold coming up from the ground. We have added large lugs to give you excellent grip. They are spaced quite far apart to prevent snow from getting stuck.
