EXTRA BOOTS

flex window

The ability to create a boot, which is able to flex in a progressive manner required years of research, experience on the snow, and many lab tests. The Flex window enhances comfort and mobility in your foot, and it perfectly represents the balance between power transmission and progressive flex. The side parts of the collar area slide on the upper-cuff transferring power in a constant way avoiding any possible overlap between materials which could lead to a waste of energy.

thermo welded

At the forefront with the application of Thermowelded Piping, Northwave has perfected its usage. This technology brings us distinct advantages both in terms of enabling us to integrate different materials and maintain a durable and resistant seamless outsole. This is particularly important in the ankle where there is no interruption of the upper boot technology bringing you progressive support from the heel to the calf. The visible asymmetrically differentiates the three zones in the boot: it provides stronger support on the outside for increased control when pressing, buttering and spinning; more flexibility on lateral inner boot and lighter still above.

heel bumper

Built into the exterior of your boot, our Heel Bumper guards against abrasion, wear and tear, and will give your boot extra reinforcement over its lifetime.

rubber toe shield

Based on the success we had on applying protections on upper to protect against abrasion, we are now also using it on the toe area always to give an extra reinforcement and extend its lifetime.

EXTRA BOOTS

flex window

The ability to create a boot that is able to flex progressively has taken years of study, snow experience and laboratory testing. The Flex Window represents the perfect balance between transmission and progressive flex, and significantly improves the comfort and mobility of the foot. The lateral parts of the cuff glide over the boot upper transferring the movement in a constant manner, avoiding any possible buckling of the materials which could result in a loss of energy.

thermo welded

We were the first snowboard boot manufacturer to use thermo-welded seals. This technology allows Northwave to offer tangible advantages, both in terms of integrating different materials and in boasting a unique seamless upper. This is particularly important in the ankle area, where there is no interruption in the upper part of the boot, thus giving you progressive support from heel to calf. The visible ypsilon differentiates the three zones: stronger support on the outside for increased control in pressing, buttering and spinning; more flexibility on the inner side; and more freedom on the upper.

heel bumper

Built on the outside of your boot, our Heel Bumper is designed to prevent abrasion, and gives your boot extra reinforcement for durability.

rubber toe shield

Based on the success we've had in adding rubber abrasion protection to the upper, we've now extended this commitment to the toe box, giving extra reinforcement that will extend the life of the boot.
