The Northwave Raptor GTX MTB shoes are suitable for mountain biking in winter and during cold spring and autumn days due to different aspects and high quality features.

The Gore-Tex and the thermal coating retain heat
The use of Gore-Tex and the thermal coating means your feet are fully protected in temperatures as low as -3°C. This to ensure your feet stay comfortably warm and making it possible to run training sessions of over 2 hours outdoors when cold and wet out. You immediately notice the tight high sock when putting on the shoe. This is a bit tricky when putting on the shoes the first few times but it does make sure that no water or cold can get into your shoe from above. This offers optimal insulation. Always make sure that your pants overlap the shoe and that you don't put them in your sock. It would be a shame if water still enters your waterproof Northwave Raptor GTX winter shoe through your pants.

The Jaws Carbon Reinforced sole is both stiff and comfortable
The sole used by Northwave is the Jaws Carbon Reinforced sole that has been injected with carbon. This makes it stiff without sacrificing comfort. The average stiffness ensures that your exertions are converted into speed more effectively. Thanks to the 360° of reflective elements, the Northwave Raptor GTX makes you even more visible in dark conditions.

Detailed description 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!

prima passende winterschoenen

heerlijke schoenen voor zowel op de mtb als de racefiets. Nu wachten op een koude winter om na te gaan of ze ook voldoen ten tijde van kou en langs/door de zee fietsen!!!

Warmer guter Winterschuh

Bab den Schuh in Neongelb, wegen der Sichtbarkeit. Passt gut, hält warm & trocken. Egal ob Dauerregen und Ausfahrt von 3 Stunden oder Temperaturen um den GefrierPunkt. Ab 8Grad wird es zu warm bei mir. Verschlusssystem ist Top und in der Mountainbike Version lässt sich mit dem Schuh auch gut rumlaufen. Drecksspritzer lassen sich einfach abspülen, das ist Top. Nur beim Neoprensaum ist etwas mehr Sorgfalt / Schrubben nötig, das wäre aber auch das einzigste was ich zu bemängeln hätte, daher 9 von 10 Sternen. Passform entspricht auch der Größenangabe. Habe bei den meisten Schuhen 46 oder 47. Ich habe mich für 47 entschieden, da ist noch ein wenig Luft (für dicke Socken) und ein paar Millimeter nach vorne...


  • NeonGelb
  • Warm
  • Wasserdicht
  • Einfache Reinigung
  • gute Passform


  • Teuer
  • kein leichtgewicht
  • Neoprensaum
