Northwave X-Trail Shoes
The Northwave X-Trail MTB Shoes combine trail-eating performance with a sleek and stylish finish.
From trail centre loops to all-day epics to ripping around local woods, they'll keep you pedalling in comfort. The heart of any great cycling shoe is the sole and with the X-Trail MTB Shoes, you'll enjoy the calibrated stiffness of Northwave's mountain bike specific Explorer sole unit. It's remarkably good at getting power to the pedals with little wasted energy while off the bike, the flexible medial zone ensures you enjoy perfect comfort for those hike-a-bike sections.
Traction is provided via a Michelin rubber tread, it's 28% more abrasion resistant than TPU for awesome durability and it's also sticky and grippy on both pedals and rough and slippery ground. The upper of the X-Trail shoe is formed using a wonderfully comfortable 3D mesh which is then coated with a wear-resistant protective film and features impact-resistant reinforcements - this is one tough shoe, easily up to the demands of all your dirt riding. To get your foot comfortable, the 3 asymmetrical straps allow you to apply just the right amount of hold and pressure where you need it and they work come rain or shine, dust or mud.
Lastly, the integrated heel system reduces bulk and prevents heel lift as you push and pull on the pedals. The X-Trail MTB Shoes let you forget about your feet, they'll be revelling in the comfort while you revel in the thrill of speeding down challenging and thrilling MTB trails. A win-win.

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. Success 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.
