Last year Easton debuted a brand new product line with their Mako skate. The focus of this skate was on pure speed and a maximum range of motion. This year, they have made advancements on that skate and are introducing the Mako II! The quarter package is unique on the Mako II, featuring 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 frequency. The pivoting Extendon Tendon Guard allows the player to get the maximum amount of power out of their 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 when they fit like a glove afterwards! On the bottom portion of the skate you will find Easton's CXN holder and ES4 Staniless Steel. The CXN holder sit taller than a traditional holder, giving you more power out of every turn, and the ES4 Steel comes with a 9' radius on it. The Mako was a revolution in the world of hockey skates. The Mako II has taken that revolution, and improved on nearly every aspect!
