The Northwave Sonic 2 road cycling shoe is perfect for everyone who wants to get started in cycling and go straight to the top. The shoes stand out thanks to their top-spec, functional solutions - such as their directly integrated heel and their thermo-welded multilayer upper material with no overlaps - while also offering excellent value for money.
The reinforced NRG Air Carbon sole has a stiffness index rating of 8.0, and five vents provide optimum airflow.
The upper part of the shoe consists of extremely lightweight, durable polyurethane. The arrow-shaped frame and the AirFlow construction help to give you optimal ventilation while also increasing stability. The anatomical form of the removable insole guarantees you maximum comfort and optimal ventilation.
The asymmetrical construction is a further innovation. The mid-strap is placed in a central position that follows the anatomy of your foot and reduces pressure on the sides. Superfluous elements have been left out so that the straps aren't bulky and provide a perfect fit.
The new multilayer construction combines lightweight microfibre with thermo-welded mesh inserts. The result is increased comfort and a decreased weight.
The new unibody construction has allowed an efficient heel retention system to be integrated into the shoe without the need for any external elements. This guarantees the same efficiency with less weight.
Northwave have measured hundreds of different feet, made countless prototypes and done innumerable tests to develop the perfect shape that transfers 100% of your power directly to the pedals. The toe area is exactly the right size to avoid any numbness. The slightly set-back instep and the special, snug-fitting design of the heel area keep the foot in the right position at every turn of the pedal and prevent any unwanted movement.
