A year after the introduction of XFrame®, the revolutionary technology that eliminates the long-time issue of pressure points on the shoes’ upper, Northwave introduces another major patented innovation to tackle another significant issue for riders any time they select their new cycling shoes.
Not all feet are the same, not even on the same person. The main difference is the conformation of the arch, and ensuring you’ve got the correct support is essential for avoiding tendinitis or plantar fasciitis. A customised arch support on its own doesn’t provide enough support, while technical soles with built-in support can be too extreme and cause discomfort or injury. Northwave has combined the benefits of both solutions by ironing out their flaws and creating a first for the market: the exclusive patented Anatomical Arch Support® technology. This TPU arch support is externally integrated between the sole and the upper. TPU is not as stiff as the carbon in the sole and this allows the shoe to adapt to the arch of the foot, which gets the best possible support during movement and exercise. Go beyond customised arch supports with your own custom-fit shoe.
