Mi1 long track speedskating boot
The Cádo Motus Mi long track speedskating boot is an improved and better fitting version of the Marchese Nero boot. The boot makes use of superlight yet durable synthetic material for the outer part. The inside of the boot is made with a sueda microfiber leather liner and comes with a heat-moldable hybrid-composite carbon shell as well as a semi-rigid moldable tongue.
Cádo Motus, as a brand, stands out for making the best quality boots that enable you to step up in your game as a speed skater. It also gives you the cutting edge that redesigns your race-performance and qualifies you to compete among the very best. The boot comes with absolute perfection when in a blend of flexibility and stiffness. It combines this with top-notch moldability from your ankle right down to your toe; this assures you therefore of complete control and confidence while at the race you love so much.
The highlight feature of this new boot that gives it an edge over the others is the extra dial closure similar to Boa. This extra dial closure is located on top of the boot laces and offers the possibility to adjust the tightness while gliding on the ice. Having the skate boots tight against the top of your feet is very crucial for remaining efficient throughout your exercise at highest speeds, but you might not want them as tight for the whole practice like during warm-ups or endurance blocks.
Once again we are the first brand to add a disc lock system to speedskating boots. And most skaters would be happy to have one that can be adjusted to fit them perfectly. You can’t go wrong with the new Cádo Motus Long Track ice blade boots.
Another improvement that stands out on this new boot is the 3M protective print on the uppers. These reflective stripes protect the boot against grinding by the ice while skating the corners.
The Mi1 is one of the most sought after boot by speed skaters because it is without doubt one of the better heat moldable boots on the market. The resin used is extremely stiff and at low temperatures becomes moldable even at relatively more moderate temperatures. The boot can be moulded in any standard oven.
If your boot fits you straight out of the box, then you do not need to mould them. But if otherwise, to mould your boots:
- Make sure to remove the blades and the mounting screws of the boots
- Preheat the oven to 70°C/160°F
- Put the boot in the oven for about 12 minutes.
Do not heat the boot at higher temperatures as that would void the warranty and could damage the boot
As an extra bit of caution do not place your feet in the hot boots or you may burn your feet. The eyelets especially can become very hot. Allow the boots to cool down a little. And make sure to test the temperature of the boot with your hand before putting your feet in them. Tighten the laces and allow to cool down. Do not attempt to tighten the dial lock as you risk to make it when the plastic is soft by heating. If you have burns or lumps in your feet or if any areas are causing you discomfort, while the boot is still hot, you can make use of the end of a screwdriver to apply pressure to any part of the boot. You can heat mould the boot as many times as you like. During the cooling down process, make sure to sit down on a chair and not apply your body pressure unto the shoe.
