1) 100% unidirectional carbon sole:
It combines extreme stiffness with a record-breaking weight because the result of biomechanical studies that allowed us to structure the sole only where it was necessary for the pedal stroke.
2) Side sculptures:
Side sculptures to increase lateral support and stability.
3) Siped pad:
Siped pad for better adherence on pedals.
4) Heel sculptures:
Heel massive siped sculptures for better traction and stability.
5) Toe sculptures:
Aggressive toe sculptures for better traction.
6) Dual Layer Compound technology:
Innovative technology that combines two different layers with specific features: the first one increases flexibility of the sculpture structure by working as independent suspension, while the second enhances traction and abrasion resistance.
Hyperlight XC Sole: 100% made of unidirectional carbon. It combines extreme stiffness with a record-breaking weight because the result of biomechanical studies that allowed us to structure the sole only where it was necessary for the pedal stroke. The design and the rubber compounds derive directly from Michelin’s
competition tires and feature the innovative duallayer compound technology for unmatched traction and abrasion resistance.
The main goal of the BioMap product line is to make your body work more efficiently so you can deliver your best performance. BioMap products guarantee an excellent fit, the best comfort, the best performance and the most efficient use of an athlete's muscles. When a cyclist’s muscles are being exerted, they need maximum strength and power and the NRG products help to optimize the transfer of power to the pedals thanks to the special combination of 4 materials that act in a specific way in each part of the body.
Unibody construction with thermoweld protections: Lightweight and comfortable unibody upper. The minimized stitching and the absence of overlapping material allow Northwave to eliminate all the unnecessary weight. The reinforcements on the side and toe have been directly thermowelded on the upper, so as to guarantee maximum protection with a minimum weight.
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.
Extreme Air Footbed: Ultralight, anallergic and antibacterial, it keeps your feet amazingly fresh with numerous vents that correspond with the vents on the sole.
No-slip heel: The interior of the upper in the heel area has been lined with a specific gripping material whose fibers oriented in a single way facilitate the entrance but at the same time prevent the heel from slipping, providing a perfect foot hold.
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.
