The EXPLORER sole was developed by NORTHWAVE in cooperation with MICHELIN with the aim to combine high XC performance with best walkability on any ground. The midsole offers just the right level of stiffness for best power transfer to the pedal, while the more flexible Medial Zone ensures excellent walkability. The tread inspired by MICHELIN and the outer shell are 100% made of MICHELIN rubber, which is more abrasion-resistant than TPU und guarantees best grip in any weather.

MICHELIN rubber tread:
The rubber inserts with two-layer technology are especially abrasion-resistant and offer extremely high grip on all grounds thanks to the special tread design.

When temperatures drop and only the toughest riders are still on the road, it’s time for the top models of NORTHWAVE’s shoe collection. Thanks to insulating fibres, the GORE-TEX Koala membrane that is used for the Arctic versions of some NORTHWAVE shoes provides optimal protection from cold, which makes it suitable for tough winter weather. It perfectly protects from rain, wind and snow while being extremely breathable: for dry and warm feet! In addition, the outer fabric is easy to clean, e.g. after muddy rides.

Tight-fitting construction developed in accordance with biodynamic principles. It wraps around the foot and provides a close fit as well as optimum support, even when pushing the pedals hard. The flexible shape reduces surface friction for increased aerodynamic efficiency. Lasered micro perforations inside the shoe ensure air circulation.

The four-layer aluminium and fleece construction provides particularly effective insulation and thus keeps your feet pleasantly warm. The footbed impresses with best insulation!

The speed lace system closure provides perfect support for your feet, is functional and fast to use: Simply open and close the shoe with a flick of the wrist. A large dial allows for precise tensioning of the wires. The shoes can be fully opened at once or step by step. For gradual release, you can push the little lever at the dial and for full release, you can lift the lever.

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. Zero overlap and no Velcro straps, so that foot and ankle can move freely.

The core of all GORE-TEX textiles is an extremely thin, permanently 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 not more than 5.0 l/m²sec – which makes the membrane truly windproof. The microscopically small pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than water droplets. Thus, the GORE-TEX membrane is absolutely waterproof. The GORE-TEX RATTLER membrane comes with a robust nylon-Lycra outer fabric for high durability.

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.

Positives zum Schuh: Optisch schöner und war schön warm. (bis 0°C getestet)
Leider liefert NW schlechte Qualität für den hohen Preis (250€)
Hatte zwei Paare, beim ersten Paar, das geliefert wurde, hatte einer eine schräg eingeklebt Aufnahmeplatte für die Clips. Man hat trotzdem in der Produktion die Abdeckkappe eingeprügelt.
Ich habe diese hinterher nicht mehr rein bekommen.
An ein montieren von den Clips war nicht zu denken.
Rose war super schnell und super freundlich und hat unkompliziert Ersatz geliefert.
So konnte ich den Schuh einen Monat lang nutzen, bis eines Morgens beim Weg in den Keller auf einmal der Schuh locker war. Die Achse vom Boa-System war abgebrochen.
Kann von Glück sagen, dass es nicht in einem Trail war.
Lustige Anekdote: Ich will zur Arbeit also hoch die anderen NW MTB-Schuhe (150 €) angezogen. Beim schließen des Klettverschlusses reißt der nächste Bügel...
Sowas darf in der Preisklasse nicht passieren.

Fazit: Rose immer wieder
Northwave = NW = No way...
