The only shoe closure system that offers step by step and full opening release with just 1 single trigger.
The XFrame construction set new standards for the fit of road race shoes and eliminating their pressure points. Our most demanding riders challenged us to take it to the next level: make the fit even more customizable. Northwave’s response? We added the double SLW2 cycling shoe dial that lets you tighten the fit around the instep and forefoot to different degrees for custom-fit adjustability and even finer adaptability.
XFrame 2 retains all the same cool features that put the first-generation XFrame in a class of its own, like plastic inserts replaced with soft tapes, and the soft, flexible Dyneema cable that naturally conforms to the shape of each foot.
After revolutionizing upper design and setting the benchmark for how to transfer every watt of power while providing the snuggest, even fit with no pressure points, XFrame® has now evolved into XFrame 2® to bring you an unrivalled standard of custom fit that adapts to any type of foot.
By researching materials we have selected a new-generation microfibre that is even softer and more adaptable but without the stretch: this means a guaranteed snug fit, greater stability and a perfect connection between the sole and closure.
