The Artic version of the Celsius model is made with a water-repellent, breathable material with superior heat insulation that will protect the foot even in extreme conditions. Studies have shown that cycling fast leads to a noticeable loss of heat, So we need to guarantee a level of warmth that is much higher than the temperature outside.
Carbon reinforced sole: A sole made of thermoplastic material enriched with carbon powder that thanks to its peculiar shape guarantees a high degree of rigidity while staying lightweight. The front end of the sole is divided into two parts: a mid-sole in fibre with added carbon powder and a outsole. The natural rubber rear part had been designed to ensure maximum grip also during descents.
Gore-Tex membrane upper: The first bike Gore-Tex® shoes launched exclusively by Northwave guarantees all-out water protection combined with excellent breathability.
