Northwave X-Trail MTB ShoesThe Northwave X-Trail MTB Shoes love nothing more than eating up testing mountain bike trails, tackling all-day epics in the mountains and tearing around the local woodland trails. As you navigate across roots, rocks and plunge down steep shoots you’ll love the support the Northwave X-Trail MTB Shoes give to your feet. The Explorer sole unit is perfectly calibrated to ensure efficient pedalling on those uphill sections and yet it’s got enough flex to absorb small vibrations and make it ideal for when you’re off the bike and walking too. Speaking of walking, the Michelin rubber tread is brilliantly grippy, giving reassurance you’ll get perfect traction when you’re having to be off and pushing (or maybe getting the cake and coffee at the trail cafe – slippery floors abound there).With the sole sorted, Northwave turn to giving you a comfortable upper. For this, they utilise a 3D mesh upper to wrap your foot snugly and thanks to a wear-resistant coating and impact-resistant reinforcements it’s extremely durable too, taking those knocks and bumps of rocks, roots and hidden stumps in their stride. To dial in the fit you’ll find the 3 lightweight asymmetrical provide quick and easy adjustment and you can rely on them in all weathers too, from summer sun and dust through to a crisp winter mud-festival.
