Built off Olympic speed skater Dave Cruikshank’s concept that natural movement equates to speed on the ice, the Mako II Youth from Easton holds true to that vision by retaining all key features such as: an Asymmetrical boot design, active Extendon™ Guard, and an aggressive blade pitch.
The Mako II Youth features a lasted, Polyurethane/Nylon quarter package with a unique, lower-cut design; the result is a fit and feel unlike any other boot on the market, and a skate that doesn’t inhibit a player’s natural stride. The asymmetrical design of the Mako II Youth features an inner quarter panel that rises 5mm higher than the outer, providing added support in both tight turns and cornering. Easton’s patent pending Extendon™ tendon guard puts the final touch on the Mako II Youth, ensuring freedom of movement and an unrestricted natural stride.
Easton also focused on offering a boot with unmatched comfort. A woven, Moisture Wicking liner feels smooth to the touch and keeps both your skates and feet dry, while the ½” two-piece felt tongue provides comfort and protection for young skaters.
The Mako II Youth sits atop Easton’s CXN holder. With an aggressive blade pitch that allows the player to get over the front of the skate and drive more force into the ice, the CXN keeps you on your toes and on the attack. Easton’s ES4 runners come standard with a 12 foot radius on their youth model and consist of the highest quality, stainless steel for long life and great edge retention.
In a market where stiffer seems to always equate to better, Easton is pioneering a new path. If you’re looking for a skate that will work with your natural skating stride, rather than against it, check out the Easton Mako II Youth today!
