Biomap: Your energy is precious, never waste it. That’s why Northwave's shoes are designed with BioMap technology. Northwave soles, uppers and all their components are anatomically compatible with every cyclist’s feet and are designed to keep the foot in the right position while pedaling, transmitting power directly to the pedals without wasting any energy.
Speedlight Carbon 3D Sole: The nylon chassis is reinforced with carbon fiber and co-injected to the outer polished TPU shell. The rubber studs ensure maximum grip. Finally performance and lightness are in step with style and design.
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 it 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.
Super Shield protection: Born to challenge the fearless, the most extreme and reckless users, Nirvana is enriched with extra thermowelded protections along the whole upper, and a special rubber reinforcement on heel, so as to further strengthen all areas subjected to stress and allow you to face top up even the most extreme offroad activities.
Multilayer Thermowelded construction: New Multilayer construction: a light microfiber is coupled with somo large thermowelded mesh vent inserts at the same thickness of a traditional monolayer. The result: better comfort and reduced weight.
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.
Performance Pro Footbed: EVA and microfiber offer lightness, sole support and the perfect degree of stiffness to transmit all your power to the pedals.
