Like the Mako II, the quarter package of the M8 is unique. It features an inside edge that is 5mm taller to provide extra support when cutting or cornering. The outside edge, being 5mm shorter, provides full extension and increased stride length. The pivoting ‘Extendon’ Tendon Guard allows the player to get the maximum amount of power out of every stride by allowing a full range of motion. When it comes to heat molding, there isn’t a more responsive boot out there. These skates need more than DOUBLE the time of a standard skate baking, but it’s worth it! In regard to the bottom portion of the skate, the CXN holders sit taller than a traditional holder, giving you more power out of every turn and stride, just like it’s predecessor, the original Mako.
Sports Etc Performance To Value Rating- 7 out of 10- A great choice for an elite level skater, looking for a skate built for speed. The fully heat moldable skate creates a truly customizable fit, unlike many other skates.
