X-Frame® by Northwave is innovative shoe technology design engineered to transfer every watt of power while providing the snuggest, even fit with no pressure points.
Totally unique, it combines next-generation materials that are only 0.5 mm thick and ultra soft for exceptional comfort with a structure featuring 360° reinforcements along the length of the foot that connects the sole to the laces via the upper.
The SLW2 dial closure system works with the X-Frame design, replacing plastic inserts with soft tapes, while the soft, flexible Dyneema cable naturally conforms to the shape of each foot.
A snug fit and perfectly balanced closure that pulls evenly around the entire foot from toe to instep. Kudos to the cycling shoe innovation that sees the cable pass through special tapes: it passes through a complex system of angles and geometric precision made possible purely by relentless testing on countless prototypes.
