Have you ever had to cancel a bike ride because of the rain?
With Northwave rain shoes and clothing you can go out in all weather conditions. Decades of experience in making cycling shoes and clothing and snowboarding products have enabled us to design products that can withstand any situation.
Our leadership in making winter cycling shoes and being the first to partner with Gore-Tex® to create technical shoes allowed us to create shoes that truly resisted water. Once the shoes were made, we then decided to also produce a whole range of technical cycling clothing that would allow enthusiasts and professionals to ride in the rain in total safety.
Rain is in fact one of the weather conditions that most frighten inexperienced cyclists. The fear of getting completely wet is of course there, but if you decide to buy technical, water-resistant cycling shoes and clothing, the chances of returning home completely dry are very high.
Do you want to ride all year round?
The first thing to consider is the shoes. The X-Trail Plus GTX by Northwave is the mountain bike shoe you are looking for. It is a shoe equipped with the special Gore-Tex® membrane, which guarantees the shoe's waterproofing, wind resistance and high breathability. The Michelin sole guarantees excellent grip on all terrains. The closure includes Northwave's patented SLW3 system, which allows the shoe to be closed to the millimetre even when riding your bike.
Cycling in the rain and during winter? This too is possible thanks to Northwave's winter shoes. Numerous models for XC, trail/all-mountain and road can cater for all needs. These shoes also have a Gore-Tex® membrane, and are suitable for protecting your feet from both rain and cold.
Not just shoes
Northwave does not only specialise in the creation of water-resistant cycling shoes, but there are also water-resistant clothing products in the collection. In the official Northwave store you can find jackets, trousers, gloves and shoe covers. How can you find water-resistant products? It's very simple, you can filter in the "weather conditions" section and select "rain". This way you will find all cycling clothing suitable for rain. Choosing clothing that keeps you dry, warm and is made to withstand the wind is definitely a key aspect when deciding to buy cycling products.
With reference to cycling jackets, there are many that you can find on the official Northwave website. Different colours and models, suitable for both mountain bikes and road bikes. We are sure you will be satisfied with the wide choice you can find on the site. Not only jackets, within the cycling trousers section you will find different items, suitable for both professional and commuting use, suitable for everyday life. Northwave's experience in the sector and its constant collaboration with professional athletes has made it possible to create technical products that are comfortable and attentive to all the needs of cyclists.
Buying rain-proof accessories such as cycling gloves and shoe covers is definitely something to consider when you decide to cycle in the rain. Using quality materials allows you to get home dry, which is not always the case with lower-end products. Like the clothing, you can also select the weather condition 'rain' for these accessories so that only Northwave rainproof products are filtered out.
Should you have any doubts regarding the composition of the materials or their use, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
