Wolvhammer Cycling Boot | By 45nrth

Designed specifically for winter riding, the rugged W÷lvhammer by 45NRTH are quite possibly the finest winter cycling shoes ever made. 45NRTH have essentially taken inspiration from mountaineering boots and created a cycling shoe instead of taking a cycling shoe and trying to make it warmer. Inside they are equipped with a furry inner boot, 200g Thinsulate insulation, and feature NASA-approved aerogel in the insole to block cold cleats. On the outside, 1000-denier Cordura and waterproof, yet breathable Sympatex outers block moisture and manage perspiration. The Vibram soles are ready for any SPD-compatible cleat of your choice.
