About

Meet MadJacks

The AFFORDABLE and simple system that lets you wear COMFORTABLE snowboard boots while SKIING. NO more boot bang and bruised shins. NO more bulky, heavy boots that are difficult to walk in. NO more reasons to stay off the mountain. Be HAPPY on the hill again.

MADJACKS was designed as a comfortable alternative to the traditional, uncomfortable and stiff, alpine ski boot. MadJacks is ADAPTABLE to all ski bindings on the market and, together with a snowboard boot, costs on average a third less than the average ski boot.

MadJacks Challenges the Status Quo of the Ski Industry

Innovative Engineering

Tested on and off the slopes, the MadJacks is designed to meet all ISO/ASTM standards related to alpine ski boot and snowboard boot geometry and binding release testing. As such, the MadJacks, snowboard/boot combo geometry is considered a standard alpine ski boot. 

MadJacks is unique in that it combines the two standards together in one simple device. The MadJacks technology is PATENT PENDING. MadJacks comes in three sizes, Kids, S/M, and M/L. Women’s and men’s snowboard boots do not change width as the skier’s foot size changes, only the length of the MadJacks has to change. The MadJacks employs an industry unique sizing capability. Each size of the MadJacks can change in length to accommodate a range of skier foot sizes. The design works for the whole family.
