It takes a certain degree of commitment when it comes to winter cycling. Sure, you could saddle up in the comfort of your own home or gym, but there's no arguing that miles on the road are hard to replace with a trainer, and so we find ourselves layering up with thermal tights, jackets, and fleece lined jerseys -- but a warm body can only go so far when your toes are feeling wet and frigid, so Northwave builds the Flash GTX Cycling Shoes to fight the elements and keep you going when temps dip into the negative. To trap moisture outside, and heat on the inside, a Gore-Tex pique membrane is implemented on the uppers, as well as footbed, allowing sweat to escape, while maintaining a cozy interior. This pairs with a high cuff that snugly tucks under your bib tights to seal the deal with dry comfort. Since support shouldn't stop on the inside, Northwave equips the Flash GTX Shoes with a signature NGR Air Carbon sole that stays rigid and tough against hard climbs that send you out of the saddle, so you can get the most power out of every pedal stroke.
