No matter the season, riders just want to focus on pedalling and maximizing their performance with no distractions. Northwave’s next generation of winter boots is now one-step closer to riders’ needs with the brand new Climaflex collar construction.
Free from overlaps and Velcro, Climaflex is designed to deliver unprecedented mobility for riders and make their winter boots feel like an extension of their legs. Without the use of conventional Velcro multi-panel ankle designs that limit your body’s natural movements, the foot and ankle feel like an integral part of the body as soon as the boots are on to they fit like a seamless connection that minimizes hotspots. This unbeatable freedom of movement sets a before-and-after for winter shoes that perfectly matches the Climaflex protection from the weather created by the combination of soft, highly insulating thermal Neoprene and the extremely elastic Gore-Tex Rattler® membrane in key areas. The two synergistically create a wind- and waterproof barrier that keeps feet warm and cosy.
- NRG Air Carbon Reinforced sole with a stiffness index of 8.0 and 5 vents for perfect airflow.
- The water- and windproof Gore-Tex® Koala membrane keeps your feet perfectly insulated and warm even at -10C.
- Ultra-snug fitting upper with BioMap Aero Overlap construction reduces aerodynamic drag.
- Extra thermal coating strategically placed on the toe.
- SLW2 dial: the only one with step-by-step and full release in a single button.
- The Climaflex collar made of extremely elastic Gore-Tex Rattler® membrane and highly insulating Neoprene delivers unprecedented mobility and protection from the weather.
- Integrated heel system ensures efficient heel retention.
- The Arctic GTX footbed with a four-layer aluminium and fleece construction works with the membrane to deliver outstanding warmth and insulation.
- Reflective inserts.
The Climaflex collar sock-like feel simultaneously provides unprecedented mobility and total protection from the weather. Free from overlaps and Velcro, the foot and the ankle act as one with the boot thanks to the unique combination of soft, highly insulating thermal Neoprene and the extremely elastic Gore-Tex Rattler® membrane in key areas. A game-changing wind- and waterproof barrier that keeps feet warm and cosy.
Gore-Tex Koala membrane
The top of Northwave collection, when the temperature falls heavily and only true fans do not hold back. The Koala Gore-Tex® membrane, available in all Northwave’s Arctic models, grants the maximum barrier against cold thanks to its strong insulating fibers, making it suitable for winter use even in harshest climates. Maximum protection from rain, wind and snow while maintaining an excellent breathability: feet always dry and warm! The specific material, moreover, is easily washable even in case of use in extreme mud condition.
NRG Air carbon reinforced sole
NRG Air provides increased stiffness thanks to the new blend of nylon reinforced with fiberglass and enriched with carbon. As with the whole road soles collection, it features the AirFlow ventilation system. Vents favour an optimal air flow in and out. Compatible with SPD pedals.
S.L.W.2 closing system
The micrometric system S.L.W. 2 (Speed Lace Winch) represents the evolution of the closure system. Maximum precision and modularity. The innovative step by step closure means you can tighten and enlarge the fit in a few moments. The side button provides a dual function: by pressing, it features a micrometric release and lifting it allows a complete and immediate opening of the shoe. More lightweight and thinner. The dial has been completely redesigned in size and weight, resulting in being significantly lighter and thinner. The external covering in soft touch material also makes the grip more effective. The ergonomic shape of the S.L.W. 2 ratchet follows the anatomy of the foot to make it really comfortable. The S.L.W. 2 ratchet is easily replaceable. The cables come from the best technology derived from the world of sailing.
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.
Biomap Aero Overlap construction
Ultra-snug fitting overlap construction created with biomechanics. It wraps around the foot for the perfect snug fit, providing excellent support even during bursts of pure power and eliminating any hotspots. The extremely smooth, close-fitting design minimizes surface friction for greater aerodynamic efficiency. Lasered micro perforations on the inside ensure optimal ventilation.
