Yes, Gravel shoes are a reality. Designed to combine the performance and comfort needed for a Gravel ride, they are different enough from shoes designed for road and XC to be considered a separate all terrain category. By introducing the Rockster, we are introducing a sleek, high-performance Gravel shoe that encompasses all the merits of a race shoe, both road and all terrain. A piece of contemporary art for today's cyclists.
The Rockster Gravel bike shoes provide a shoe closure with comfortable laces, the toe and heel have TPU reinforcements, and the perforated upper allows excellent breathability, even on hot summer days. If the Rockster shoes are suitable for SPD pedals, a Gravel cycling shoe suitable for both flat and SPD pedals is the Rockit. Equipped with a Vibram sole, lightness, grip and robustness are three of the main features of this model made by Northwave.
Travelling along trails and dirt roads is an increasingly popular activity among mountain bike and road cycling enthusiasts. Consequently, Northwave could not remain indifferent, so much so that shoes made specifically for this discipline are finally available. Not only Rockster and Rockit, for enthusiasts we also suggest the following models of mtb and gravel shoes:
- the Rebel 3, equipped with dual SLW3 rotors;
- the Origin Plus 2 also available in a wide-plan version;
- the Origin, a shoe with a strap closure.
5 models of gravel shoes to satisfy every need, from those who want an absolute focus on performance to those who want to balance performance and comfort.
Northwave's gravel shoes allow you to enjoy rides on your bike in total safety, thanks to the experience gained over the years in making off-road and road cycling shoes. Once you've put them on, you'll immediately see the difference compared to cheaper gravel shoes.
