If you're looking for a MTB shoe that will not only give a great performance but also keep the elements out during winter then the Hammer CX is a must.
Featuring an Ultralight PU & Neoprene upper this not only helps keep the wind out but it also makes the shoes water & mud resistant. The 3 Velcro straps also offer a secure fastening & the vents also work as an integrated system designed to prevent a constant air flow which is great when using on hotter days.
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 & reduced weight.
The asymmetrical construction is another innovation of the collection. The central strap is moved to the center so as to follow the anatomy of the foot & reduce the pressure on the side area, because it's particularly sensitive. The straps have been lightened by all superfluous elements, presenting thinner thicknesses & discharged central areas, thereby maintaining maximum grip.
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.
TPU Thermowelded Extra Protections
The thermowelded TPU protections on the upper, have been further increased compared to the Mtb version, for even better protection of the foot.
Neoprene Sock & Water Repellent Treatment
Mud & rain are certainly two elements to take into account when dealing with Cyclocross circuits & for this reason Northwave has provided some specific solutions starting from the upper which lower air intakes are coated with a special material that prevents water absorption. Besides this the shoe features an inner sock made of Neoprene integrated to the upper, which guarantees at the same time a good water resistance, breathability & moisture management. Moreover the cleat on the sole plate is treated with a specific EVA waterproof layer.
Speedlight 3D CX Sole
Specifically modified for Cyclocross use. Guarantee of great performance & lightness, is made of fibreglass reinforced with nylon, co-injected with an outer shell in TPU. The sole features natural rubber cleats with the addition of a specific insert, in natural rubber too, along the medial zone for a firm & secure grip even on the most slippery grounds. Inside the package it is also available an additional kit of front studs made of iron, even more suitable in muddy terrain & in case of rain.
The world of cycling consists of grit, willpower & fatigue. It is a world of people who love to feel the wind, rain & sweat on their body & love to experience increasingly intense feelings. Only a cyclist can fully understand another cyclist; the sense of pride in the bike world is common among those who practice this sport, at all levels of competition. If you belong to the tribe of cyclists be proud, make yourself seen, be recognized & stand out. Place your trust in those like Northwave, who have always offered you the best, because for a cyclist, choosing Northwave means choosing the best for himself.
