The new NORTHWAVE EXTREME XC, equipped with MICHELIN HYPERLIGHT XC Technical Soles has been co-developed by Northwave and Michelin. It has an upper create with Northwave Biomap technology showing laser micro holes and resulting in a perfect fit for every foot. It also features Northwave’s patented SLW2 closure system, with step-by-step and full release by using only one button.
The MICHELIN HYPERLIGHT XC in Outdoor Compound, inspired by MICHELIN Wild Race’R mountain bike tires, is developed using unidirectional carbon fibre making it light and rigid. The tread design uses innovative Dual Layers Compound Technology, the combination of two compound layers with different characteristics: The softer layer increases the flexibility of the sculpture by working as an independent suspension system, while the harder one provides traction and better abrasion resistance, increasing durability, stability and adherence. Aggressive sculptures in the toe and heel areas provide the ultimate traction and stability.
