A double SLW3 dial allows you to differentiate pressure across the toe area and top of the instep for an accurate comfortable fit.
Abrasion-resistant ultra-slender reinforcements in TPU ensure full protection across the entire upper.
Upper with ARS (Anatomic Reticular Support) structure an exoskeleton which wraps the foot, transferring every watt of power to the pedal.
The mesh insert prevents overheating even in the hottest summer weather.

These shoes are light, well built, comfortable, and stiff. Right out of the box I installed cleats and went for a two hour xc ride.
I should also mention that my wife mentioned that they are stylish in the white-spattered colors.
I am confident that these will serve me well!
I bought a NORTHWAVE EXTREME XC 2 and in the photo the sole is full carbon fiber. But when it got to more, the sole “seems” to be made of another material. you can't see the daughters of carbon.
