The Northwave Nirvana mountain shoe features a Speedlight carbon 3D sole consisting of a nylon chassis reinforced with carbon fiber and co-injected to the outer polished TPU shell. The rubber treads ensure minimum slippage and maximum grip.
Designers at Northwave use Biomap technology where the uppers, soles and other components are anatomically compatible to a wide range of foot shapes to keep the foot in the correct position while pedaling for the most efficient power transfer. By keeping the foot in the correct position, all the muscles of the leg can work at their greatest efficiency.
New Multilayer Thermowelded Construction consists of a light microfiber coupled with large thermowelded mesh vent inserts at the same thickness of a traditional monolayer. The result is better comfort and reduced weight. Super Shield protection refers to the Nirvana having extra thermowelded protections along the whole upper and a special rubber reinforcement on heel that stands up to extreme off-road activities.
