Sport Line - Energize your passion
Those who choose Sport want to show their true passion for cycling. Every pedal stroke is an injection of energy to the body and spirit and has to be an unforgettable experience, even for those getting to grips with their "first rides". So here's a line that enhances the comfort in the saddle and products created to emphasize an attractive look guarantees that only Northwave’s 20 years of experience can ensure a true competitive edge.
NRG Air Carbon Reinforced
Totally renewed, NRG Air improves in every aspect. Increased stiffness. Reduced weight. 5 different areations for optimal airflow. Compatible with SPD pedals.
SPD pedal compatible
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 Advanced Footbed
Ergonomic design: because you need to keep the perfect position when pedalling and you want comfort too.
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 and reduce the pressure on the side area, because particularly sensitive. The straps have been lightened by all superfluous elements, presenting thinner thicknesses and discharged central areas, thereby maintaining maximum grip.
Northwave has extended to its entire new collection the use of thermowelded unibody uppers. Two main advantages are:
- Use of thinner and therefore lighter materials
- Almost complete stitching elimination
The upper results are a more anatomical fitting, in order to better envelop the foot. Thanks to this technology, the upper features larger air vents resulting in improved comfort during pedalling.
Be Visible! Be Safe!
Cycling keeps you healthy but only if you stay safe.
Inexperience, the weather conditions on the roads, and distracted or speeding drivers represent an ever-present risk to the safety of cyclists, and cause a large number of accidents every year (10% of fatal accidents occur on urban roads). Most accidents (27%) occur between 4 pm and 8 pm when the effects of increased traffic due to commuters traveling home are combined with other factors, such as accumulated stress and poor visibility caused by fading natural light. Another factor to consider is the lack of cycle lanes and the necessary safety equipment. However, none of this should dampen your passion for a healthy bike ride. This is what Northwave had in mind when it developed the “Be Visible! Be Safe!” project.
