2 MTB ( Save: 26 % )
For mountain bike riders focused on cross-country performance, the Katana 2 Women's MTB Shoes are the ideal choice. Starting with the sole, Northwave's Jaws Carbon Reinforced unit sees lightweight thermoplastic infused with carbon to give just the right amount of stiffness to maximise your power while having enough flex for comfort across rougher terrain and when hopping off the bike to push. A natural rubber tread offers unwavering grip, so if you need to push up a muddy bank you can be confident you won't slip.
To the upper, Northwave uses its Asymmetric Strap system. The central strap is moved centrally to follow the ergonomics of the foot and ease pressure across the side, while the upper and lower straps can be adjusted to ensure you have the very best fit and support for efficient pedalling. This system is fuss-free, works even in the muddiest of conditions and reduces weight - win-win.
Whether it's racing or a swift cross-country ride you'll soon build up some heat and so you'll be pleased to have the cooling performance of Northwave's multilayer, thermo-welded upper. Large vented areas allow air to circulate across the foot, letting in the fresh air and also letting moisture escape. Last but not least, reinforced protection to the toe ensures rock or root strikes won't knock you off your stride.
