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
"The Maoke mountain peaks reach 4,884 m in Indonesia. When it was opened in 1979, this resort was the second highest in the world before the glacier melt. Our women's boots are named after them. The numbers (300 & 500) indicate the level of foot support. Indeed, the faster you go when snowboarding, the more pressure you put on the board through your boot: this means that the foot support within the boot must be sufficient to minimise any unnecessary foot movements. "
Fast Lock 2-zone tightening system
"The Maoke 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 made some improvements to it this winter by adding a rip-tab at the shins for perfect 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 the 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.
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."
