Northwave Galaxy, Mens Road Bike Shoe, 2014 - Black

by Northwave
  • Pro Line - Perform like a masterThe character of the shoe is evident from the name: PRO. Designed and conceived by interpreting the needs of the professionals, this line is made with the most innovative technological advancements available, making use of cutting-edge solutions and ultra-light materials. Ideal for athletes who demand top performance from the products they choose. Because every detail can make the difference at the finish line.3 Layers full Carbon SoleThe 3 carbon layers drastically reduce thickness while increasing stiffness. The AirFlow system prevents overheating of the sole and therefore the foot itself.Self-Adjuster Ankle PadThe special cursor placed on side keeps the ankle strap, made in a soft and ergonomic material, always centred. Thanks to this particular device, it is possible to avoid annoying pressure on the most sensitive areas of the foot, additionally always keeping it in the correct position.S.L.W.2 Micrometric ClosureLighter, smaller and more accurate. The closure of the shoe can be adjusted whilst pedalling thanks to the "step by step" button. The release side button makes it easy the fully open of the shoe.AdaptafitAvantgarde tongueless construction. Adaptafit envelops the foot like a glove, without hotspots and overlapping materials. The selected elastic mesh perfectly adapts to every foot shape, always providing the maximum comfort.Reflective LogoThe reflective logo on the heel, nearly invisible in sunlight, IS extremely bright when subjected to artificial light sources.NW Biomechanical MappingFrom a biomechanical point of view, the foot function is essential as it stores the force generated by muscles which is then transmitted to the pedal in the boost phase. We're talking about very high forces: think of a sudden acceleration or continual uphill bursts. An athlete who travels 30,000 km per year performs approximately five million pedal strokes.Each element of the BioMap shoes by Northwave has been designed to keep the foot in the correct position while pedalling, transmitting the force directly on the pedals without loss of energy. The soles have been reduced in thickness but the overall stiffness has been increased so the mechanical energy transfer action from the shoe to the pedal can be concentrated in a small area. Consequently, the thrust area, to be more effective, has to be placed next to the pedal. The upper has had its stitching minimized and is designed to anatomically follow the shape of the foot, preventing slipping and providing an effective support. The vents have also been strategically placed along the upper and the sole to work as an integrated system designed to provide a constant air flow.BioMap by Northwave products are developed by taking advantage of the biomechanical tests performed on our award-medalists champions, so as to work in synergy to the natural movement of the body during the athletic gesture, along all the contact points with the bike and facilitate an effective aerodynamic resistance to air. No detail can be ignored if you want to be the first to cross the finish line.Thermowelded UnibodyNorthwave has extended to its entire new collection the use of thermowelded unibody uppers. Two main advantages are: - Use of thinner and therefore lighter materials- Almost complete stitching eliminationThe upper results are a more anatomical fitting, in order to better envelop the foot. Thanks to this technology the upper features larger air vents resulting in improved comfort during pedalling.Performance Pro FootbedEVA and microfiber offer lightness, sole support and the perfect degree of stiffness to transmit all your power to the pedals. New Northwave Speedplay Adapter System. Co-developed with Speedplay. Nylon with stainless steel outsole protection plate. Just 0.3mm stack height instead of 3mm with normal Speedplay adaptor. Saves 7.5 grams. Still allows natural curved outsole shape and reduces unnecessary weight that some 4 hole flat soled Speedplay specific shoes have.. The natural outsole shape means the fore or aft cleat positions do not push the pedal further from the foot compared to completely flat 4 hole systems.
