Features of the product

A word from the product manager
This new Wed'ze model offers the same hi-tech features as the Foraker 500: - thermoformable liner that fully adapts to your foot, - powerful and easy wheel & cable tightening, - very lightweight, cushioning EVA sole (80% air) that insulates from cold ground, - medium rigidity to easily steer your board on all terrains. This year, we're delighted to be offering a 500 model for girls.
Why the name
The Maoke mountain peaks in Indonesia attain an altitude of 4,884 m. 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.
Cable Lock 2-zone tightening system
Cable Lock: very powerful fastening wheel with cable. Simply turn the wheel to tighten. Your boot is fastened powerfully with no effort. A 1/4 turn in the opposite direction and the system is opened, making it easy to open up its tongue.
Boot flex/stiffness
The Maoke 500 offers a medium flex. It is ideal for women who take curves at very high speed (need for a stiff boot). It is also reactive in small turns and surprise bumps, being a quite flexible boot allowing quick leg flexion and extension. The Bullwhip 500 really masters both. Both flex and heel support are better compared to the Maoke 300 boot.
Heel support: level 2 liner
Foot support is essential when snowboarding in order to correctly steer the board. The foot must be well supported in the liner, and the liner well supported in the boot. The level 2 liner applies 5 concepts: 1. Thermoformable liner alone, at home, 2. Ergonomic heel pad ankle foam, 3. 3-point liner fastening, 4. Wide hook & loop link between the liner and boot, 5. 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.
Ergonomic heel pad ankle foam
The ankle foam padding sections fill the hollow underneath and behind the ankle bone to hold 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 ideal for holding the foot perfectly in place and can be adapted to everyone. - the material: is a soft and firm elastomer foam.You can feel the support as soon as you slip your feet inside. And when you're riding, there are no pressure points.
3-point liner fastening
3-point fastening (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.".
Wide hook & loop link between the liner and boot
We have added 2 rip-tabs between the liner and the boot, one each side of the liner. The retention surface between the liner and boot is 3 times greater on the 500 models than on the 300 models. The aim? To help prevent the liner from slipping inside the boot, so it's easier to steer the board.
Double Foam
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.
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.
