Description

Description

The Northwave Flash Arctic GTX are winter shoes for the road bike and offer the best insulation when the temperature drops below zero. Thanks to the various techniques and materials used, you can be sure that these road bike shoes will enable you to withstand the cold without any problems.

Gore-Tex® Koala membrane and thermal coating for optimal insulation.
This winter shoe is equipped with the waterproof and windproof Gore-Tex® Koala membrane. This keeps the feet well insulated and warm, even at temperatures around -10°C. The front of this road bike shoe has extra thermal coating, which improves heat retention for this important area. Immediately noticeable if you look at the Flash Arctic GTX is its high Climaflex collar, which is made of an extremely elastic Gore-Tex Rattler® membrane and insulating neoprene. This collar prevents water and cold from entering through the top of the shoe. This requires a good fit on the ankles, so it may feel a little tight. This also makes putting on and taking off the shoe a bit more difficult in the beginning.

The NRG Air Carbon reinforced sole is both stiff and comfortable.
The sole used for this winter shoe is the NRG Air Carbon sole. As the name suggests, this sole is reinforced with carbon, providing stiffness and comfort. Thanks to the extra stiffness, your efforts on the bike are better converted into speed. However, the power transmission of a full carbon sole is still more efficient.

SLW2 dial turning system for optimal adjustment
Through the SLW2 dial turning system you can adjust the fit of this shoe to your liking with a simple turn of the button. This will pull the BioMap Aero Overlap construction tighter over the instep, until your desired fit is achieved. Thanks to the BioMap Aero Overlap construction, this shoe also has improved aerodynamics. By adding 360° reflective details, the Northwave Flash Arctic GTX also makes you more visible in dark conditions.


Clarification size in cm
The size denoted in cm tells you how long the shoe is. This size was taken on the inside of the shoe measuring from the heel to the toes. In order to determine what size you’ll need, you can measure your own foot. Do this by placing a piece of paper on the floor tucked against the wall. Stand on the paper with your heel against the wall. Draw a line at your big toe. Measure the distance between that and the wall, and add approximately 5 mm. The number of centimeters is the size in centimeters found on our website. Which specific EU/UK size you need can differ between brands. This is because each brand uses their own boot tree, causing the shoe to be bigger or smaller than the size would suggest. This is why we’ve added the size in centimeters for all of our shoes. We’ve also categorised our shoes in three different groups: narrow, medium, and wide. In order to determine the width of your foot, you can use this table. Read all about it on our blog!

Koude voeten, welke koude voeten?

Typisch zo’n geval van “had ik eigenlijk eerder moeten kopen”. Geen geknoei meer met overschoenen en eindelijk echt warme voeten. Maatje groter gekocht om ruimte te hebben voor dikkere sokken en kan niet anders zeggen dan, prima! Het SLW2 sluitsysteem went snel en het aantrekken, met behulp van de lus die aan de kraag zit, is na een paar keer ook een routinehandeling. Ik heb de schoenen nu ruim vijf weken in huis en na 15 ritten van gemiddeld drie uur onder sterk wisselende omstandigheden in binnen- en buitenland heb ik nog niet één keer koude voeten gehad. Wat mij betreft dubbel en dwars hun geld waard. (Helemaal toen Mantel ze in de aanbieding had

Pros

  • Warm
  • Pasvorm
  • Looks
  • Comfortabel

Top schoen voor de winter

Het aan en uittrekken was lastig de eerste keer, maar de lus aan de hiel werkt goed. Even wennen met fietsen omdat het een wat zwaardere schoen is en door de hoge snit voelt het wat anders aan de enkels. In de vrieskou gefietst en in de regen, en eindelijk na 10 jaar geen koude tenen meer in de winter en natte voeten (in combinatie met een sportful No rain winterbroek over de hiel) wat een extra genot geeft dat met het fietsen van langere stukken (richting de 100 km). Wat mij betreft veel te laat gekocht, investering meer dan waard.

Pros

  • warmte
  • comfort
  • droog
  • goeie snit

Cons

  • zwaarder dan gewone schoen

Geen koude voeten meer

Schoen heeft een perfecte pasvorm. Wel even oefen met het aantrekken maar na een paar keer aantrekken gaat het steeds eenvoudiger. En het belangrijkste: geen koude tenen.

Pros

  • Perfecte pasvorm
  • Lekker warm

Cons

  • Lastig om aan te trekken door smalle boven opening

Dikke aanrader!

De schoenen zijn zeer goed isolerend, waterdicht en zitten me als gegoten. Wel heb ik een maatje groter genomen dan mijn gewone schoenmaat. De sluiting is origineel van NW maar zeker handig genoeg. Misschien dat Boa sluitingen handiger zijn maar daar heb ik geen ervaring mee. Het aantrekken vraagt een zekere handelingen die ik wel snel gewoon ben geraakt. Maar het belangrijkste is wel dat ik eindelijk een fietsschoen heb gevonden die mijn voeten warm houdt, ook in de herfst/winterse omstandigheden!

Pros

  • Warme schoenen
  • Regenbestendig dus eigenlijk geen overschoen nodig
  • Zitten perfect indien maatje groter gekozen
  • Verlengde schacht met fleece stof: je enkel besche

Cons

  • Sluiting vraagt gewenning maar dat gaat snel
