For over thirty years, Northwave has been designing and developing the best XC MTB shoes, with the EXTREME XC flagship model, a true market icon. Northwave XC MTB shoes are designed for all users, from enthusiasts who love a day out riding to those setting off on real adventures, and choosing the right shoe is fundamental. What do you need to consider?

Fit: it doesn’t matter how lightweight, rigid, eye-catching or ergonomic your new shoes are, you must choose the model that fits your feet best. Northwave’s huge range is specially designed for you.

X-Dial® fastening system: dial fastening developed by top Northwave engineers and tested with hundreds of athletes over thousands of kilometres under all weather conditions, ensuring the foot remains firmly in position. The dial system allows quick and easy adjustment, even from the saddle.

Sole: from ultralight carbon soles to rubber soles that are perfect on the pedals, Northwave XC shoes offer the right solution for every type of rider.

Ventilation: keeping your feet at the right temperature is essential when you pedal and this is possible thanks to the ventilation system integrated into the Northwave shoe designs, with carefully positioned vents on the upper and sole. Cold weather is not a problem: Northwave also offers solutions for winter riding, thanks to partnerships with GORE-TEX® and Primaloft®.
