Your energy is precious, never waste it. That’s why the shoes are designed with BioMap technology. Northwave soles, uppers and all their components are anatomically compatible with every cyclist’s feet and are designed to keep the foot in the right position while pedaling, transmitting power directly to the pedals without wasting any energy.
3 Layers Full Carbon Sole:
The three carbon layers drastically reduce thickness, decreasing the distance between the foot and pedal and increasing stiffness. AirFlow vents in the sole provide an improved supply of fresh air and prevent the sole from overheating.
Avantgarde tongueless construction. Adaptafit envelops the foot like a glove, with no pressure points and overlapping material. The elastic mesh perfectly adapts to every shape of the foot, always ensuring maximum comfort.
The asymmetrical construction is another innovation of the collection. The central strap is moved to the center so as to follow the anatomy of the foot and reduce the pressure on the side area, because particularly sensitive. The straps have been lightened by all superfluous elements, presenting thinner thicknesses and discharged central areas, thereby maintaining maximum grip.
Integrated Heel System:
The new unibody construction of the uppers allowed to integrate an efficient heel retention system inside the structure, without the need of external elements. Same efficiency, reduced weight.
Multilayer Thermowelded construction:
New Multilayer construction: a light microfiber is coupled with somo large thermowelded mesh vent inserts at the same thickness of a traditional monolayer. The result: better comfort and reduced weight.
Self adjuster ankle strap:
The ankle strap, made with a soft and ergonomic material, thanks to its construction, always stays centered, avoiding annoying hotspots on the most sensitive areas of the foot.
Cyclist’s safety is a top priority for Northwave. This is why they added several reflex points in most of the shoes collection, in order to increase the visibility under low light conditions. Innovative solutions, incorporated in the upper, like the reflective logo on the heel of Sonic and Scorpius, nearly invisible in sunlight, are extremely bright when subjected to artificial light sources.
Performance Pro Footbed:
EVA and microfiber offer lightness, sole support and the perfect degree of stiffness to transmit all your power to the pedals.
S.L.W. 2: Maximum precision and usability. The side button
offers dual functionality: press the button for micrometric release, or lift the button to instantly undo the shoe completely.
The ergonomic shape of the ratchet base matches the shape of the foot for added comfort, while the size and minimized weight plus the outer soft-touch covering make it easier and better to grip. It features wires that harness the best technologies used in sailing, and can be easily replaced using the spare parts kit.
