When temperatures fall and only the toughest riders are still on the road, the top models of the NORTHWAVE collection are the perfect choice. Thanks to insulating fibres, the GORE-TEX Koala membrane, that is used for the Arctic versions of certain NORTHWAVE shoes, provides optimal protection from cold and is thus also suitable for toughest weather conditions in winter. Excellently protects from rain, wind and snow while being also extremely breathable: for permanently dry and warm feet! The outer material is easy to clean, e.g. after muddy rides.
NRG AIR CARBON:
Thanks to a new mix of fibreglass-reinforced and carbon-reinforced nylon, NRG Air Carbon Reinforced is now even stiffer. The outer sole is equipped with the Airflow ventilation system that provides optimal air circulation in the shoe, thanks to several vents.
BIOMAP AERO OVERLAP:
Tight-fitting construction, which was developed in line with biodynamic principles. It envelops the foot and provides a close fit as well as optimum support, even when pushing the pedals hard. The flexible shape minimises the surface friction for even more aerodynamic efficiency. Lasered micro perforation vents inside the shoe ensure air circulation.
SLW2 SYSTEM CLOSURE:
Speed Lace 2 is a fast and handy closure system with excellent hold. You can easily tighten the shoe by turning the dial. A small button at the side of the dial allows for accurate adjustments. To instantly undo the shoe completely, just pull the button.
The CLIMAFLEX collar made from soft, insulating neoprene and a highly elastic membrane feels like a sock. Therefore, it offers very good mobility and extensive weather protection as well. Without disturbing overlapping and velcros, foot and ankle can move freely.
The core of all GORE-TEX textiles is an extremely thin, lastingly waterproof, windproof and breathable membrane. It has over 1.4 billion micropores per square centimetre. The pores of the GORE-TEX membrane are 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule so that moisture can easily escape. The volume of air that passes through one square metre of fabric in one second is 5,0 l/m²sec or less - so the membrane can be considered truly windproof. The microscopic pores are about 20 000 times smaller than a drop of water which makes the GORE-TEX membrane absolutely waterproof. The GORE-TEX RATTLER membrane has an upper material made from a robust nylon-lycra mixture for extremely high durability.
The four-layer aluminium and fleece construction provides particularly effective insulation and thus keeps your feet pleasantly warm. The footbed impresses with perfect insulating properties.
The reflective elements attached to the clothing as design elements or decoration do not represent a personal protective equipment as mentioned in EU regulation 2016/ 425.
