Founded by Gianni Piva in the 1980s in the Italian town of Montebelluna, Northwave is owned by the Piva family. It wasn't until the 1990s that products on cycling shoes began, having previously been a snowboard equipment manufacturer. 1993 marked their first MTB shoe, and in 1996, Paola Pezzo won the first XC MTB Olympic gold wearing their products. Succes on the road followed shortly afterwards, with Ivan Gotti's victory in the 1997 Giro d'Italia, followed by a second Olympic gold for Pezzo in 2000. Subsequent iconic cyclists to have won using the Northwave brand include Cipollini, Gunn-Rita Dahle, Boonen, Gilbert and Cancellara.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
