Northwave Clan MTB ShoesIf you’re the type of rider that loves nothing more than sending it down the steepest, rockiest and roughest trails then Northwave’s Clan MTB shoes will let you push your limits with confidence. With a grippy, sticky outsole from Michelin Technical Soles, these mountain biking bad boys are rock solid on the pedals. The Northwave Clan MTB Shoes tick all the boxes when it comes to flat pedal mountain bike shoes; they’re grippy, durable and protective, giving you a shoe that loves to get down and dirty with you, inspiring you to push tyre grip a bit further and huck a bit farther. The welded upper is remarkably abrasion-resistant with TPU reinforcements added to the toe and heel to protect against rock and root strikes while mesh zones boost breathability when it’s warm, keeping you your feet fresh on the trails. A padded tongue provides comfort and protection and non-stretch laces make the fit adjustment a simple, fuss-free affair, with an elastic keeper to hold them away from chain and cranks.

The tread itself provides stability on your flats with flexibility for a natural feel, extra grip centrally and maximum control at the toes and heels.Speed is Nothing Without ControlIt’s not just the grippy outsole that works so hard to keep you in control on flat pedals. Northwave have also carefully calibrated the stiffness of the sole, via an adaptive TPU shank to provide foot support and stability. The lengthwise openings along the medial zone and heel contain flexion and control torsion for perfect connectivity with the pedals. The horizontal wedge openings on the toe enable the flexion of the foot to be controlled on and off the bike.
