Jaws Carbon Reinforced Sole
The Jaws Carbon Reinforced sole is highly stiff rated 8 by Northwave as well as supplying all the grip needed for winter rides with its aggressive tread pattern.
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 the Climaflex collar 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.
